Re: “The search for solutions to the restaurant staffing crisis continues

There's a staffing problem. Wild Wings just closed so there are some unemployed restaurant people right there.

Way too many venues for amateur help...When J&W was here, very good...But a lot less restaurants...There are too many....Most think they are great, but they are not....

Re: “Is Lindsey Graham gay?

I have ben around long enough to remember when the gays "outed" others because they wanted to legitimize their own actions...and they force fed the gayr agenda on all of us...now the transgenders followed and what do we have? 37 gender choices..this is what the rest of the world does NOT WANT...

Re: “After 24 years on Market Street, Wild Wing Cafe says goodbye on Wednesday

Great. Another restaurant on the Market shuts down to make way for a hotel. Does anyone remember the Gourmaticery? That was where the French Quarter Inn is now.

I was there just today and was so very impressed with the expanded space, new bar & patio, and polite & helpful staff. I'm happy for them both and wishing continued success in their new location. Don & Sharon

Re: “McCrady's Tavern has plenty of hits and some unique B-sides too

Had lunch at the Tavern last Saturday and enjoyed the food very much. The only caveat was when I asked for a merlot, was told they did not have one by the glass, so I changed to a Malbec and was served a Malbec/merlot blend . . . what the ??? But most disturbing was the fact that the wine was ice cold, colder than the water we were served and I was told when I mentioned it, that it was the proper temp for red wines . . . . ?? really. S.

Why don't they just tear down every single building downtown and put up hotels instead.

You might also recall the 50 plus years of nightclubs above Wild Wings including Level 2 and Purple Tree.

Re: “Charlestonians from Standing Rock on Thanksgiving week: "We need people"

Thank you for your comment Grammarpolice... I will do my best to answer your question....First of all...There are 3 camps and Sacred Stone is one of them. There is also Rosebud camp and Oceti Sakowin. All are here to stop the pipeline.
We are camped with Rosebud Lakota and have made our home there.
This land is sacred land and we are humble guests here to serve the tribes. I would encourage you to listen to elders on how you can serve the natives and their mission best. That may mean coming to stand on the frontlines, serving in the kitchen, fundraising for purpose, helping with building, child care, elderly care, assisting in the medical departments, helping with legal, stripping tipi poles, cutting fire wood..... Whatever your calling, come to serve and work and offer your gifts but Please come prepared and ready for winter... blizzard kind of winter. Pray about how you can serve the best with the offerings you have. Noone is saying not to come, they are saying...yes come.. but this is not a festival or air b&b standing rock. This is a time of ceremony and prayer. We don't want to be a drain on the movement. We want everyone to be safe. If you decide to come...there is an orientation meeting every morning at 9 am. Come to this meeting the first morning and get dialed in. We are here to honor the Lakota ways and stay in peaceful prayer and ceremony. It is our honor to be here and our duty to educate ourselves on the true history and also the practices of the people.
There are many people coming with good intentions but are not working as much as they are eating and hanging out. Let's check ourselves. THIS IS NOT A FESTIVAL. Do not come if you are going to be a drain on the precious resources for winter. There are so many natives, elders, security guards and families that have been here a long time who don't have suitable warm winter homes yet. I feel like we need to make sure our native brothers and sisters are well taken care of first. This is my personal view. There are drones of people coming, which is beautiful! Let us do our best to walk thoughtfully and intentionally in this movement though. Listen to the elders and use your gifts in service. Together, UNITED, ONLY IN PEACE, forgiveness and compassion can we defeat the black snake and walk towards honoring the treaties and healing.

Re: “How John Lewis gets his Texas Hot Guts sausages to snap

The meats here are fantastic. I don't usually get sides when I do BBQ, so I can't comment on them. But I will say the meat is tender and moist. A previous reviewer was rather harsh on the place, but it doesn't sound like he had an open mind based on his comments. It sounded like a revenge review ( unless perhaps the staff was exceptionally rude to him, but he made no mention of that) designed to turn people away because he ain't frum 'round here. I have had his brisket, turkey, ribs, and hot guts in Austin as well. The food hasn't changed and is top notch.

Re: “Charlestonians from Standing Rock on Thanksgiving week: "We need people"

Interesting since the Sacred Stone Camp are actually are calling for people to stop coming. You can read it on their own Facebook page.
"Dear allies: we have asked this before, and we will ask it again. Please do not set up crowdfunding pages to simply bring yourself to Standing Rock if you are not coordinating with indigenous people on the ground. It is very very hard to organize on the ground, it is very difficult to gauge needs, navigate the camps, navigate power dynamics, communicate etc. We are here, and we have been working hard on this campaign, and we need your support. We do not need you to come and save us, we need your prayers and your resources and your actions. Please look around yourself if you are at camp, and consider the dynamic. Are you creating space that is dominantly non-indigenous? If so, please consider that this is a furthering of colonization, and take action to step back, and recenter indigenous sovereignty. If you have raised funds for yourself, please find a camp here to donate to: http://sacredstonecamp.org/donate/"

Re: “Have you visited King Street's new Uncle Kyle's Sweater Emporium yet?

Weird. How are there multiple identical sweaters in the store if they're vintage/unique? Looks like reproductions/fake vintage to me. JS.
