Re: “Mozzo

I've been there for breakfast just about monthly since they opened, and I love, love, love their bagel sandwiches and breakfast burritos. The portions are large, and they don't skimp on the more expensive parts of the recipe (lox, et cetera).

My only knock on them is that the ordering/service flow isn't logical and sometimes that means a while before your order is taken. But it is never really a "problem."

Overall: big fan.

Re: “This meat-eater is just a big fat guilt-ridden hypocrite

I don't know why diet has to be an all-or-nothing proposition. If you're concerned about meat consumption, just eat less meat. We could all stand to eat more vegetables and smaller portions in general, even as people that love bacon and burgers and wings and tenderloins and BBQ. Lower the demand for cheap meat, animal welfare should improve as the cut-rate producers lose volume that keeps them in business.

Re: “New curfew at Northwoods Mall goes into effect Friday

Crime was vastly worse in general in all categories when we were teenagers. TigerLily75 has a short memory. This is not to say that the Northwoods Mall management is off-base; they know their clientele and are fighting a losing battle with the traditional mall concept as it is.

Re: “Disparity down the grocery aisles of Mt. Pleasant vs. Downtown

Six grocery stores? Within the distance from Whole Foods to the Ben Sawyer Publix there is also another Publix, another Bi-Lo, and Wal-Mart as well.

But here's the rub: grocery stores operate on thin margins, I've read 1-3% in general. Commercial rent in Mount P is high, but downtown it is astronomical. Bits Of Lace is a perfect example of that. Then you have to balance out shrinkage with security and personnel. Bi-Lo on Meeting and Food Lion on upper King regularly had police presence as well as visible security details whenever I've gone there no doubt for that reason. Mount Pleasant clearly offers a favorable situation for grocers with high sales and low losses to the food deserts spanning swaths of Charleston, proper and North.

That being said; Bi-Lo has not released any statement about why they closed, and if it was shrinkage I think they'd just say so.

Re: “Pounce Cat Cafe + Wine Bar has found a fur-ever home on Meeting Street

Must. Resist. Temptation. To. Make. Toxoplasmosis. Quip.

This sounds like a lovely idea, and I hope it works out for these entrepreneurs. "I'll take a Cabernet, a muffin, and a lap cat in a non-clashing-with-my-pants fur color."

Re: “Trigger warnings are an insult to students' intelligence

Decades of trigger warnings preceding news stories, violent movies, and TV programming and all of a sudden, people need to lose their sh*t because professors give students a heads-up before class material. The end is nigh, oh my god! Censorship because someone previewed a lecture! Society is collapsing!
