Ha! Who didn't see this coming? They basically cut out the affordable housing portion of it and created spaces that will yield higher profits. I don't think the Beach Co. ever wanted to build the first plan. They wanted everyone to complain so when they came back with this plan they could say "Well we tried to build affordable housing." Leave it to Charleston...
Why is the white guy's tie black? Symbolism? Black noose? I am offended.
Once cyclists start obeying traffic laws downtown, I will become sympathetic to their cause. I would love to provide safe pathways out of traffic but when I CONSTANTLY have cyclists breaking traffic laws around me downtown, I have little desire to encourage more. And you can't say it is a minority because I hate it so bad i observe every cyclist I am near downtown. It's ridiculous the swerving through traffic, turning when they aren't supposed to, lack of signals, etc.
I thought the food was good when I went, but not great. It is hard to please everyone's BBQ palate. That is why BBQ is often served as a buffet. When I go to Dukes or Sweatman's or Schoolhouse (closed) or Browns I like some things, and not others. The grilled chicken might be better than the ribs at one place, and the BBQ might not be as good as the fried chicken at another, and the sauce might be the best thing in the whole joint somewhere else. My problem with Swig and Swine was how expensive it was. I understand that giving the amount of time and attention to the meat means it will cost more, but I felt like I was paying too much for what I got. I might give it another shot, but not before I fill my belly with Dukes (Ridgeville) chicken, Q, sides, and blueberry-pineapple cobbler.
My wife will be sad to see it go. It might be the most cringe-worthy show in a long time though. If it hadn't been located in Charleston, I would flood CBS with pleas to cancel it.
