A cool place with great atmosphere but i havent been back since the first time i went there with a friend.... after we spent 30-40 dollars plus tip for drinks and food, they came around with a tip jar for the band...i gave a few dollars because i like to support live music ( and i thought i might get a dirty, shameful look if i didnt) but i thought it was a little tacky how they handled it. Left a bad taste in my mouth anyways.
To Jusme: Hope you were laying down, facing upwards, when you puked, and hope you had a Merry Christmas.
Definitely don't agree with this review. I have been to Mosaic several times. Each time i was actually surprised at how good the food was. The atmosphere was pleasant. The waitstaff was nothing but courteous, and the food was delicious each time. Their crab cakes are stellar and very unique and their grits are delicious. Have yet to be disappointed. This review leaves me wondering if the author sucked on a hot fire poker the day before he/she decided to eat at this establishment, or if there is a personal issue going on here. To christinaorso.....go downtown and chug your beers. The end of your comment shows the lack of validity in your words.
I don't understand why it should even be called a "Takeover." Why doesn't this group just organize these events with the owners and go. The more attention they bring to themselves as being different, the more people will see them as different. How long are gay people going to feel like they have to march down the street once or twice a year and flaunt their "gayness". Being comfortable with who you are is fine. We, as people are all different. Some gay people "gay it up" more than others. Well that's cool. Be who you are, but don't flaunt the quality or characteristics that you have. Also, I don't understand why "gay bars" feel the need to have "cabarets" or men dressed as women (or v/v) put on a "show" every night. Maybe have one or two nights a month that cater to this kind of crowd. Or maybe I'm wrong. Do all gay people like this kind of thing every time they walk into one of "their bars". I think it would serve Charleston to have a classy bar (or am i the only one that doesn't see Pantheon as being classy) that just makes it known that they are open to people of all orientations. Just the fact that these guys are calling it a "takeover", i believe brings negativity to the whole idea (which i think is a good one), and separates the glbt community even more from a psychological standpoint . I believe in acceptance of others no matter what orientation they are. Having a monthly happy hour at a bar/venue is cool.... but to call it a takeover? What are you trying to accomplish using that terminology?
I've been to the songwriter's night at Sunfire and it's actually a great weekly thing they have going on there every Monday night at 7. However it is weekly, and i believe this event is monthly. This event is also not something you go and sign up for when you get there. I believe it's an event where the songwriters are hand picked and chosen ahead of time for their known talents. I looked at the line-up and there are some well known (for good reason) names on there. Most of them seem past going to sign up to play 3 songs for free. Open Mic's (even if they are limited to original songwriters) like at Sunfire, which again, I'll say is a great venue for this type of thing, is a bit different than showcasing several of Charleston's best songsmiths. I don't see competition here. I see more love for the scene. In fact it might even encourage more people to go to Sunfire and show off their talent so that they might get noticed, or just to get used to playing in public.
um....that's the most mainstream typical right wing reply you can come up with.... this has NOTHING to do with whether the village tavern survived.... you don't see the music farm, home team, the windjammer, the pour house, the Tin roof going out of business...maybe they didn't bring the right music into a town like charleston.... maybe mount pleasant folks didn't like the kind of music they brought.... who knows???? do you work for FIX news? unreal blame obama.... yea he came into a perfect economic situation left by Dub-ya . I guess Bush's stimulus was the right answer.....really.... unreal. Get edumacated... haha.. right wingers never cease to amaze me.
