Wonderful space for an event. Went to a Guerrilla Cuisine dinner there a couple of weeks ago and was surprised at how pretty the distillery hardware looks with the right lighting and how warm and comfortable the space was - especially for a warehouse and work site, at that (the bathrooms are a literally shining example). A few strategically placed pieces of art (big works well) and beautifully set tables were all that was needed to transform what would be a cavernous area in the back into a really cool, even elegant, venue. I know others worked hard to make that transformation and I WAS under the influence of some fabulous food, but the end result of GC & others' efforts highlighted the possibilities of the distillery space itself. The Striped Pig people proved very hospitable folks, dedicated to their craft and eager to share the process & results with willing fans. Sampled some powerful but oddly delicious moonshine & a more finished product. It is obvious that a great deal of thought went into making this space a welcoming place to hang out, whether for an event or just a visit.
Cebedenbaugh - all the states have a health insurance exchange - the Federal government is having to run those where the states have decided not to create their own. Funny enough, it is the mostly states that are great proponents of "states' rights" who have decided to not create their own exchanges. Many of those same states have also decided not to expand their Medicaid programs with Federal funds, so the working poor - who don't make enough to qualify for exchange subsidies but too much to qualify for Medicaid - are left without any insurance at all. Classy "solution" for those who resist anything Obama-related.
Eligible not elligible - Come on, run it through a spelling checker. Good news story, though. I hope everyone who needs to buy their own health insurance and is not comfortable with the website will find their way there.
I had the opportunity to watch Flories work with the Granary's chef and others at a recent Guerrilla Cuisine event and was happy to see grace under pressure and eat creative, delicious locally-sourced (and credited) food. I don't get off James Island very often and eat out even less these days, but I'd be confident recommending the Granary just on the basis of that dinner and the workmanship that went into it.
..."to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the War of Northern Aggression"... and just in time to celebrate another defeat of the same anti-government ideology (think nullification) that led this country into THAT debacle. Good bye PINOs (Patriots In Name Only). Again!
The idea that an ethics fine is just the cost of doing business reflects much of what is wrong with some folks' idea of business these days. Like the idea that increasing "shareholder value" is the supreme business of business. Change that to "stakeholder value" and we've got something to talk about.
