I shared a couple of pizzas with two friends recently and they were intersting artisan pizzas and the setting at the big tables was nice. I will go again - price was on higher side but all and all I found it to be a good experience.
Progress is cool - 20 years ago you could have been shot there!
I like the candidates comments above... if you want small business you have to make it affordable for those job creators to venture - and that means affordable business license fees and fast approval for project applications. On the bigger scale like Silicon harbor and shipping/transportation you not only have to keep regulation under control to attract global players you have to provide a workforce that has received pre-certification at the trade school level. Finally, you need a campaign that expands the buy local to Bring it home to Charleston - going after all the alums of the City's schools to bring their business home to the Holy City!
I own a home on Poinsett. I invested heavily remodeling a home that had been restored and renovated in 2000. The location is fantastic the people are wonderful. Like my neighbor that has worked at a local country club for over 60 years - the stories she can tell of Charleston change are incredible. Or my across the street neighbor who acquired her home from the Charleston Affordable housing program and her home beams with pride of ownership. Upper King Street is awesome - especially if you do not have $500K to invest in a home! Hats off to the writer and paper showcasing the working class heritage of Poinsett and the history of its namesake Joel Roberts Poinsett - Secretary of War, Mexican Ambassador and International Man of Intrigue!
There are several homes for sale - take a look - Zillow is a great app to see what's what!
BTW we had our first back yard BBQ this weekend - I bet it has been a long time since a grill was fired up and friends fellowshipped as we did - it was great.
very cool - keep it up
