Re: “Bull Street Gourmet locks its doors for good today

Cheesecake Factory God No. I moved to Charleston at the same time this opened. I loved sitting in the window seat drinking wine and having dinner (back when they served dinner) only a few blocks from my house. I told myself each time I went that if Bull Street went under, I would have to leave Charleston. We'll see if I'm able to stay.

Re: “Seven-story development at corner of King and Spring streets gains final approval

Wow! I am impressed. What a fabulous building. Just cannot wait. Another Mike Brady designed Architectural Gem to add to the DT Crown. Mike's been sooooooo busy here lately. Our Stepford Community is only a few years away from complete fruition. So excited to finally be able to say "Hello Buckeyes, Welcome to Anywhere USA".

Re: “The Agenda: Chs. could take West Ashley lot via eminent domain; Senate passes gas tax; Mulvaney takes blame for repeal falter

btw Lynnar, another bit of history -- Trump got access to the land for his casinos in Atlantic City through a sweetheart deal with the Mayor's office. The buildings involved were condemned by the city, taken by eminent domain and then sold to Trump at prices well below market value.

Re: “The Agenda: Chs. could take West Ashley lot via eminent domain; Senate passes gas tax; Mulvaney takes blame for repeal falter

"Are we living in a communist country now?" Another inane and ignorant comment by Lynnar. The US has used eminent domain since the adoption of the Constitution, and the Courts' interpretation of freedom of speech is more liberal now than at any other point in our history. Apparently she got her education of American history and government at the same school as our President.

Re: “The Agenda: Chs. could take West Ashley lot via eminent domain; Senate passes gas tax; Mulvaney takes blame for repeal falter

I'm not in support of the City's use of eminent domain for the old Piggly Wiggly property in West Ashley. It becomes a slippery slope to all property owners. I understand that the Sunoco gas station was a bad fit for many reasons (it's the gateway to West Ashley, had an awful design and use of property, neighborhoods strongly rejected the idea, etc.) I was against that use, but for the City to "take" this property so that it will become a "park", well that's ludicrous! This area is extremely dangerous with merging roads, to begin with. A park is an ill conceived idea. Too bad Whole Foods or Trader Joe's couldn't see this property as a viable area to open their stores. Perhaps it should be developed as a mixed use for retail and offices????

Re: “The Exposure Myth

I have a question and I'm not trying to be mean, I am serious. In this article some artists say they donated works worth x amount but it sold for only q amount. Who decides what the piece is worth? On the lighter side, perhaps you could direct the charities to other artists, such as the artisanal pizza, artisanal bakery or artisanal sandwich shops. People always need food

Re: “It was the best of, it was the worst of

I realized that these are simply popularity contests when they gave best pizza to EVO again. After eating there and getting a one-sided topping pizza I never went back. All the toppings were on one side as if they had tilted it at a 45 degree angle when placing it in the oven. Perhaps they thought I ordered a half and half. The store made bacon was delicious but it would have been better if it covered the entire pizza. Waitstaff seemed to be bored with the ordeal. But hey, if you go there a lot and nowhere else, then, yes, it most likely is your favorite pizza place. And if Chic-fil-a has the best tea, then the rest should take heed and step it up.

Yeah. Design sucks. They should have made them use hardiplank on the exterior so it looks like Charleston.

This eminent domain is not good! Are we living in a communist country now? Gee, I guess we are. Seems we are losing our freedom of speech now. So why not take some property you own. If they do this, what is next? So, does that mean, the city can decide to just take away my house???? Think about it.....you take an inch, then you take a yard.

This looks like a shopping mall in Atlanta. The last thing it should be called is elegant.

Will any affordable units be allotted? #ilovedowntowntoo. Other cities luxury buildings housed 80/20 units. Charleston needs affordable housing downtown. Why not start here!

Re: “Bitty and Beau's, a coffee shop staffed by intellectually and developmentally disabled people, opening in Charleston

This is a great idea. If they are capable of doing the work safely, I would be happy to see them have jobs and leading a more productive life.

I will drop in when they open. I am always looking for a good cup of coffee that does not require me to learn Latin just to place my order.

Re: “What're you scared of?

Trying to understand this cartoon. Is it saying that only white Americans feel they have a right to carry a weapon for self protection, or that All Americans should be against the 'Constitutional Carry bill' because it might make it hard for terrorists to be noticed when they walk armed down the street?

If you are a citizen of the United States, the Constitution applies to you. The second amendment is a CIVIL right, just like freedom of speech.

Re: “The Exposure Myth

We all want to be a part of our communities, not just live in them. Im hopeful that this will be the start of an open, honest and productive discussion that brings artists (and designers, developer, volunteers, et al as Buff Ross pointed out) and the non-profit community closer together. Thank you to the Nathansons for stepping forward publicly.
