Drink more local beer!
Coastal Cupboard is a nice little local cooking store, right in the center of Belle Hall Shopping center. They have a nice selection of cookware and cutlery, along with some hard to find grill accessories. They are one of the few Big Green Egg retailers in the area, and actually have a few of the BGE accessories in house. The staff has always been kind and helpful when I shop there. Sometimes the prices can be a bit on the high side, but the convenience is often worth it.

"Let's give these folks a chance and I'm happy to pay $5 for a really great taco."
Did you not read the review? They visited multiple times, and the tacos are not great. I How many "chances" does a restaurant deserve? I can understand not letting one bad experience mold your opinion of a place. But when you visit multiple times, and the results are the same, it may be time for the owners to change some things.
"ha ha, a bunch of privileged ppl talking like they know anything about growing up having nothing."
What does growing up having nothing have to do with working fast food? I was never wealthy, but I did grow up in a lower middle class family. I worked in fast food while in high school, when the minimum wage was $5.15. It sucked, but it was friggin easy. Mindless work, that only required a bit of speed. I decided I wanted to make more money, and landed a job at a pizzeria. There are always options if you feel that you have been underpaid and overworked.
"you can ask for a raise but they can't???"
No one ever said fast food workers shouldn't ask for raises. This isn't about a raise for hard workers that deserve it. This is about having the government force the businesses to give raises to everyone. I am not necessarily against that, if the raise is reasonable. However, if I asked my boss for a 100% raise, he would laugh in my face.
"People who have families to support don't have that luxury."
I have a family, and I refused to even get married before I could support my family.
"Than you can volunteer to work for less if you don't think you're worth more."
That doesn't really make any sense. You being complete irrational here and allowing emotions to get in the way of common sense.
"That is exactly why you do not have a family that YOU cannot support."
Wow, we agree on something. Birth control is cheap and readily available.
I will repeat my comment above. I do think these people are worth more than the current minimum wage. $15 an hour is a silly request. If you want support, be reasonable.
"Do you all understand how negotiation works? You ask for the moon than negotiate for something less. The $15/hr is a negotiation starting point. If an employer meets them in the middle in the $11.50 range that's a huge win. Whereas if they started with a "reasonable" demand they'd end up settling for something even less. I hope none of you are buying a car any time soon."
No. If you want people to support your demands, you go for a reasonable rate. When I am buying a car, I don't offer half the asking price for the car. Just like you don't ask for 2x minimum wage. If the demand was like $9 an hour, I would probably get behind that.
"If I hear one more person say "but my [better/more important than MacDonalds] job only pays [x], they don't deserve as much as me!" I'm going to scream. You're underpaid too dumbass! Instead of trying to keep those with a little less than you down, why not try standing up together?"
No. I never thought I was underpaid working as a researcher.
"You people realize that when people make poverty wages the public makes up the difference through public assistance, right?"
I have no problem with these people getting paid more, but $15 is overkill. I know many college graduates that started out at that hourly rate. Hell, I have seen engineering contractor positions posted starting at $17/hr.
