We had read about the Boulevard Diner (and it's sister restaurants) in the CCP and were excited to find it during a ride-about along Coleman. We live in Dunes West and our area of Mt Pleasant has so much to offer that we rarely buck the insane construction along 17 after the 526. We were really glad we ventured out because the Boulevard Diner is a little slice of the old days. Huge platesful of delicious food. I had a BLT that had a mountain of bacon and wonderful fries. My son's meal came with delicious lumpy smashed potatoes, wonderful cole slaw and one of the diner's specials. We both had another meal out of the leaftovers. What a place. We will be venturing out more frequently now. Thanks.
The important statistic is that S Carolina drivers are the 3rd most careful in the nation. Being the 48th worst in fatalities means we are within 2 or having the least fatalities. Being 45th in failure to obey traffic signs means we are the 5th best in obeying traffic signs. This story was not well written. I find S Carolina drivers to be very polite. Maybe it is due to my driving area being mostly around Mt Pleasant or maybe it is having driven in NYC, Los Angeles and Boston and we won't even go into driving in Rome and Paris. Try to cross a street in any of those cities. The other statistics have to do with how strong the police/state etc officers go after law breakers and how statistics are used to prove a point whether it is valid or not. Mount Pleasant officers are very strong on eradicating drunk driving and I for one am pleased by their dedication. Many lives have been saved by this kind of service. See the stats as half full folks... not half empty. Try to see the positive. It would be nice for a change. ...thanks ...nico
As I read about this midadventure from the lofty heights of being 70 plus years of age, I am tempted to dismiss it all with a "grow up" comment. However, this is a group of college kids who by definition are at the beginning of their growing up which will occur when they hit the real world (not that the real world doesn't have the same silliness going on.)
Instead I ask each of the involved to search for his or her "higher self" which is hidden inside somewhere, look down at the situation and ponder whether this type of silliness is what you want to look back on and also whether you could have as easily been caught saying/writing similar badly thought out statements. Students at the CofC will probably realize that they could easily have typed similar tweets, especially during/after a night of partying (perhaps Breathalyzers should be installed on notebooks.) Please take away from these events the one thing that should have been obvious: there is no such thing as privacy when it comes to e-mails, tweets, facebook, etc. They are SOCIAL sites which means that anyone can read what is written on them. Note that this includes future employers (yes you will have to work someday!)
I've been to O'Brions on 41 and never had a bad meal or a warm beer. Last time the burger was a bit rare. They apologized and the bartender took it back to the kitchen. While waiting and drinking my comped beer, a kitchen staff member came out to apologize and tell me they were going to redo the meal to make sure nothing was cold, etc. Showed up perfect (try the Carolina burger) and really enjoyed the meal and the company. This place can get really crowded but it is worth waiting for. I've been there about 6 times now... sometimes alone and sometimes with family. Good to have a family restaurant/sports bar/general gathering place to meet new folks.
