I went to the Biergarten on a Saturday for lunch. I ordered the Pimento cheese roll appetizer (recommended by the server), Pork Schnitzel, tried two different beers, and my dining companion had sweet tea and a salad. The pimento cheese rolls lacked any discernible taste other than 'gooey cheese', could have been Velveeta for all I know. The pork schnitzel was as tough as shoe leather and tasted about the same as one would expect shoe leather to taste. Proper schnitzel, when prepared correctly, has been pounded thin, and could basically be cut with a fork. This was certainly not true of the Biergarten's version which was a carved piece of meat, that was then egg-battered and dredged through flour. Thankfully we passed on the 'beer card'. $50 for lunch that was not very tasty? I do not think so. My lasting impression is that if you desire a large space to hang out and drink beer, this is probably a good option, but I would skip on the food. Parking, as mentioned in several others post is a major problem.
Chicken Shack (for some reason this stuck in my head ever since they announced plans to convert the car wash) or a little more tongue-in-cheek, the King St. Henhouse
Ms. Zimmerman proposes a legitimate question with this op-ed piece. The solutions, she and the Coastal Conservation League, wish to pursue are not going to be found by filing lawsuit after lawsuit against the cruise line. The change that they seek will be found in changing the law, rules and regulations by which the cruise industry operates. It is a well known fact that practically every major cruise line has a country outside of the boundaries of the US law and regulations listed as its 'home' country where it has established itself as a business entity. This is not merely a coincidence. Therefore, the CCL should directs its lobbying efforts to senators and state representatives if they wish to change the rules, regulations and law pertaining to the cruise industry.
Great article and some very valid points and solutions have been mentioned here. Unfortunately, I am sure the Coastal Conservation League will disagree. Just as they do with most every project that is about bringing progress to Charleston (the Port expansion, I-526, deepening the harbor, etc.). Dana Beach has made a very wealthy living off of filing litigation that opposes any progress in Charleston, all while under the guise of 'conserving' HIS interest and filling his pockets.
@truthrus - So, the take away is that a lesbian lawyer wants to get into politics and this is her best shot at office; Charleston Public Works Commissioner. My question is, what relevant 'utilities' experience do you have? The short answer: NONE! Furthermore, if it weren't for the help and backing of the other local LGBT politicos, Ketner & Condon, I doubt very seriously that she would have even made it on the ballot.
Thank you for this very important reminder that has, as you pointed out, been mostly lost upon American workers today. I find it even more sad that as our national economy has shifted to a more global economy, that Americans freely embrace this trend and at the same time dismiss the value and contributions that organized labor made in the early twentieth century.
Today more than ever, we need to remember these contributions, because as I see it, the more we invest ourselves in this global economy, it will be just a matter of time before the CEO of corporations will want to further lower the workers wages and benefits to the standard of the third world countries that they have been using for years to supply labor for manufacturing so that stockholder profits can continue to skyrocket.
Its time for American workers to stand up for themselves and quit buying into the propaganda that all unions and organized labor are bad! It never ceases to amaze me how workers in SC, and the south in general, have embraced the rhetoric of the politicians and bought whole heartedly into this false belief, yet these same workers are the ones that the unions were meant to help and protect. Wake up people and quit drinking the Kool-Aid!!!
