If Five Guys sold beer, this place wouldn't exist. Average burger, below average for the price. The vanilla shake is worth the price of admission and the bar isn't too bad, but thats where it ends.
" I have been here through years of this Skinful event and never attended a one of them. I think it is garbage and a waste of a night."
Then how the hell would you know if you've never attended Riptide?
"You whippersnappers stay away from my lawn. GD kids, what with their face paints and eee-leck-tronik music. BAH!"
I'm surprised you can wear those Puritan clothes in the Charleston heat.
Wekq4, bike riders often own cars too and, thus, pay for the roads. Bikes also don't chew up the road like a car does over time, so there is really no need to maintain a road on account of bicycle usage.
The entire problem is that entitled assholes feel that it is their road and no one else's. This moronic attitude, particularly from pampered little gits like Tara Servatius, fosters resentment between both drivers and bikers. This continuous conflict is the reason drivers have no regard for anyone else on the road and why bikers ride aggressively. Share the damn road. It won't be a tragedy if you get to your destination 42 seconds later, I promise. The Klan rally won't start without you Tara. Seriously, I'm not kidding:
Don't existing laws already cover most of these ordinances? I'm no expert and may well be wrong, but I think alcohol licensing laws already address things pertaining to property access and security. Disturbance of the peace still applies to businesses, no? So what is the impetus of this law other than forcing bars to clear their property as quickly as possible? Now, instead of arranging cabs and rides, separating parties who may cause problems outside, and de-escalating possible confrontations at the end of the night, the drive now becomes clearing the premises at the threat of being fined or your business license being penalized.
A huge group (30-45) from where I work used to take the day off on Memorial Day and hang out on Folly to have some beers and play on the beach. We've all lived in the area for some time. None of us were ever arrested, none of us drove home drunk, nobody ever complained that we were being too rowdy. Now, none of the beaches allow consumption of alcohol, responsibly or not. This year it appears we won't be going to the beach. I'm sure we won't be the only ones to pass in favor of other options.
