Re: “UPDATE: 70+ Charleston restaurants have signed on to the Strawless Summer Challenge

Use paper straws! There really is such a thing!!! I used them when I was a kid. They made them until the 1960's when they were replaced by plastic straws.

Re: “Strawless Summer challenges Charleston bars and restaurants to give up plastic straws

What's wrong with paper straws?? I used those all the time when I was a kid! They are biodegradable.
They made paper straws up until the Sixties when they were replaced by plastic straws.

Re: “UPDATE: 70+ Charleston restaurants have signed on to the Strawless Summer Challenge

I had cocktails at Rutledge Cab Co a week and a half ago and each came with a straw. I think they may need to reconsider what signing up for strawless summer means.

Re: “Rappahannock Oyster Bar is so much more than an oyster bar

The tuna melt is seriously the best I have EVER had. You forgot the part about free parking..

Re: “Rappahannock Oyster Bar is so much more than an oyster bar

The review of the ceviche makes me want to go...now. Not many places in Charleston where they can make this simple but delicate dish a winner. And if you are going to have someone "try" an oyster for the first time, take them to an oyster roast, let them start off with some rubbery, over-cooked bivalve, and work their way up to a juicy, almost raw delight! Just be sure they have chili or hot dogs should your attempts to introduce folks to a new dish fail.

Re: “Rappahannock Oyster Bar is so much more than an oyster bar

Went here when they first opened, wasnt that impressed but they still were working with a partial menu, so not a fair review. Like that they have parking, will give it another try soon!

Re: “Orange Spot Coffee's new Park Circle location is now open

closes at 6pm, ughhhh.
when will these park circle establishments realize that those of us that actually live in the neighborhood go to work outside of the neighborhood.
too bad as their coffee is really good and it's a block from our house.

Re: “A year after opening, Lagunitas has closed its Charleston taproom indefinitely for construction

Why were previous comments deleted? I'm guessing use of the word shit?

Re: “McClellanville now has its own farmers market

I went today and really need to check this out! The vendors were as interesting as the goods/foods/items they sell. A terrific feeling of Lowcountry goods and sense of community

Re: “Everything you need to know for tonight's Charleston Margarita Festival

The idea of the Margarita Festival being moved to Brittlebank Park sounded like a great idea at first. The feedback from the first event was good. After standing in a long line to get into the event, you then had to stand in long lines in a hot tent, herded like cattle to receive the small samples of the drinks offered. The samples were good, but going from one long line to another to receive it became old and hot quickly. The generic DJ music offered was less than entertaining. If it had not been oversold and a little more attention given to the festival goers overall comfort and experience, it could have been a more enjoyable experience. I would have been glad to pay more for the ticket, just to have had less people and more space to breath. Scratch this one off my list. Live and learn... Cheers!

What offers? If any, it'd be nice to pass that info to the crew you laid off...day of without any notice, rather than the city paper

Re: “Everything you need to know for tonight's Charleston Margarita Festival

Where to get tickets to a sold out event would probably have been helpful.

Re: “Workshop offers an around-the-world array of options

That's a pretty apt description, Ima Oldman. Slice was decent, and that was what we intended to get when me and a work associate went, but we did not find it initially as it sits off next to the coffee shop and had no signage. We ended up at Pink Bellies. I had the pork noodle bowl, which was not bad, but small portion for $11. I was still hungry enough to eat two slices when we finally found them. The location reminded me of a college food court. Not a bad concept, but seating was NOT plentiful when we went, we ended up outside eating on some art cube for a table. A brewery was opening up though and that itself may draw me back to try some of the other kitchens.

Re: “Don't worry, here's the recipe for Edmund's Oast's pickled shrimp

Does city paper write about anything besides this pickled shrimp? It really can't be that life changing.
