Consider myself somewhat of a a regular... take friends and family there all the time and love the great people, food and drinks there! I am 28 and never feel like the oldest or youngest, which is a feat in Charleston... love the food (could literally live on the pulled pork sliders)!
Took an out of town friend there for her birthday dinner in Decemeber and our excellent waitress was friendly and attentive... even bought my friend a birthday drink on her own tab! Looking forward to hitting the outside patio in the warmer weather, though it is always open for those who don't mind the cold... Definitely worth the visit, I see some unhappy reviewers on here, that is too bad, but as a restuarant that is less than a year old I think there are always some learning curves... everyone is working hard, having fun and making sure your time is as enjoyable as possible. Midtown is doing a great job already and it can only get better!
nuthinBUTtheTRUTH - I think you have Cyrus confused with another "white boy"... easy mistake - but you should probably do your research before making sweeping generalizations and hysterically false statements.
Jack H - I work on a freelance basis for Charleston Waterkeeper and train volunteers as needed, also serving on the events committees (for our "lavish parties") and have never been paid a dime - nor asked for one. All parties are fully sponsored by event sponsors who are aware of and committing to the specific event. Donations from the public or fundraising events go to support educational and scientific programming.
Thanks for the laughs though - ignorance, I suppose, really IS bliss.
I have been intimately involved with Charleston Waterkeeper as a volunteer for over 3 years now. I have worked in the office, at events, on the water, in the classroom, and in the community - so it is with continued pride and well-versed knowledge of the organization's mission and character that I remain in support of Charleston Waterkeeper, Cyrus Buffum, the CWK staff, board of directors, and our waterways.
I will not pretend to know the details of their records but I will tell you that I have seen their dedication to the mission, I have watched my donations both of time and money benefit education, community, and scientific programs to help improve the health of our waterways. And truly - that is good enough for me, but if it is not good enough for you, which is both acceptable and understandable, I encourage you to get involved, to meet the team, to learn, for yourself, about the organization and to take in these articles and the people stomping their feet saying "look at me, look at me" with a drop of salt water.
It IS going to be an amazing event!!! Unfortunately the above blurb is not about The Water Ball... check out www.thewaterball.org for more details. Tonight will be an evening dedicated to clean water, benefiting Charleston Waterkeeper, at the SC Aquarium, 7-11... be there!
