I laugh a lot. I play frequently. I work hard. And I rarely calm down when asked.
Don't let the name fool you! While they do have big, juicy, delicious burgers; they also have AMAZING & HUGE build your own salads. They have something for everyone!
Black/geechee people are up in arms about the way their community is portrayed and exploited now because THEY CAN. I love these comments saying "oh my god everyone is so sensitive" bla bla. Well in MY PARENTS GENERATION there was segregation. Ya know...Jim Crowe? Don't act like the world has instantaneously changed because we let black people drink at the same water fountain or a half black man became president! That has not solved racism. It's deep rooted and black people have every right to say, "find your own marketing gimmick. I'm not piggy backing off of you so don't piggy back off me." All that being said, I love the revelry. I'm going to their block party on oct.30. I don't think they meant anything malicious by it. But that doesn't mean people can't have an opinion about it.
I know it's today, but in the article you mention Sunday. Just thought I'd point that out if you'd like to make a correction (= I will be there and I can't wait! What an awesome neighborhood to live in. I'm super lucky!
Um...the reason this article seems so outdated and the list so terrible is because this article is 2 years old!! Check it out below! Almost the exact same article was printed this time 2 years ago! Come on CP!! I used to love your independent spirit and your underdog mentality, but since you've gotten bigger, you've been making some poor choices (ie: firing the music editor, ignoring local foundation's attempts to have their event published online, etc...ridiculous). Oh and no, Charleston is NOT overrun with Clemson fans. I am one and I would know. I take shit for it all the time. Still love my Tigers. Does anyone know any bars in JI or WA to find like-minded Tiger fans? =)
Um...City Paper...think you might want to take down the previous post for it's vulgar language and offensive implications. That's just tacky. You must be a 15 yr old boy. Ugh.
Oh and btw: the cop wasn't fired for writing Dabo a ticket. He was fired for bragging about it online. WHAT an idiot.
Good God. While I don't agree with him comparing Spurrier to Paterno, I still feel that Spurrier went too far by calling for Morris's resignation. Now I realize I am one of very few Clemson fans in Charleston, but you don't see me boycotting organizations for showing their allegiance to Carolina or for saying unflattering remarks about Dabo or Clemson. I hear it every day. If you have an opinion, state it. The City Paper is known for printing controversial articles. They take risks. This may not have been a smart one due to the vast majority of Carolina fans in Charleston. But don't punish the paper for publishing an article that offended you. Just state your opinion back. That's what the comment section is for.
