You are correct. Drunks are not the most reasonable people to speak with. You will either have bar security getting hurt or stepping over the line and hurting a drunk. Either way the Police will need to come anyway.
Very good points. First, where is it the place for CCSD to be the "police" in an off Campus issue? Let Law Enforcement apply current statutes and decide if a crime occurred. With all I see in the news it wouldn't be the first time CCSD had a student with pending charges. Secondly, Racism comes from all sides. CCSD must take a color neutral stand to these issues when they occur on school property.
Great story! I was there and I have to say I didn't hear a person complain about the mud at all. In fact we all treated it with amusement. Once were okay with wet feet and concentrated on the beer it was great! Good job! I have been to all 4 so far and this was perhaps the best yet.
Unfortunately like many communities in North Charleston, it is a quick walk to some seedy neighborhoods.
Great article. I have been a consumer in the Craft Beer market since someone turned me on to it in the late 90's. I have had a ring side seat as it grew. And the growing pains have been evident.
This year's Brewvival was a great example. First, let me preface this comment by saying that hands down this is a highlight of my year. I have been to each and every year. David and Jamie at COAST have arguably done more for beer in SC and Charleston especially than anyone. I think they will agree. This year it showed that it was a bit bloated. The lines were chaotic. The idealistic self policing behavior was all but gone. People cut to the front of lines. "Designated drivers" handed off glasses and drank essentially for free. In many a line I saw "old timers" refuse to sink to the level of others and miss out on samples after 30 minutes in line. Maybe we can't put Pandora back in her box, but I would like to believe so...
