Lovely home. A bit light on the greenery, though. The 'garden' could use a bit of jackhammering.

Since he bought a house here to live in part time, I see a new winner of the Best Local Actor award.

Re: “The Exposure Myth

Maria Brophy's approach works well. I also am connected with a number of nonprofits - and from the nonprofit side, understand the pressure to ask. The most effective asks really do consider benefits to everyone in the relationship (including other nonprofits in the community who may not be directly affected by the fundraiser). If you want stuff, be nice about it. And don't pout and be punitive if you don't get your way.

Re: “Making a case for a downtown movie theater

awesome idea!!! given the rush to close everything that would be practical to locals let's start an online pledge drive to have a movieplex. given that the one on james island just closed to build an apartment complex and the downtown area can't support a grocery store because no one lives there lets...Hooray. pretend that we can have a place to watch what everyone watches at home and won't support. Hooray, we have no idea about economics. i want to be a journalist with my head up my ass. I love those picture shows.... Hooray.

Re: “Making a case for a downtown movie theater

The guys who own & run the Terrace should run the theater downtown. They do such a fabulous job! It is close to home but I would love to have the movie going experiences I had as a child seeing movies on King street again, too.

Re: “Making a case for a downtown movie theater

I felt the same way. This particular theater is why I fell in love with Charleston in the first place during military leave and why I decided to relocate after service. Cinebarre is nice but this to me was nicer because of it's nostalgia. I too was wondering it's cost to reopen.

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm Newbie: Letting Ourselves Down

Isn't anyone sick of drunk dick wagging,(past their prime) losers. Oh yeah they have money, old money is tired and boring. The information age has made just about everything more interesting.

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm Newbie: Letting Ourselves Down

Good night, I agree with Patricia for once. Dinner party meet cutes work. They do.

When I was in my late 20s-early 30s in Charleston we had "Supper Club" once a month on a Wednesday night. You had to be legally single, you could bring a friend but not a date, and you had to dress nicely and show up if you RSVP'd that you would. We met at various restaurants around town. The restaurants would offer a special or a couple of free hors d'oeuvres. It was started by some lawyers in town and was by invite only. It fell apart after a great four or five year run, when someone from N Chasn took over the reigns and put a freaking ad in the paper! When it was all phone trees and emails and word of mouth invites, the method was seamless and fun and a few marriages came out of the experience.

It just hit me that we were kinda the Southern Charmers of the early 1990s! We had movers and shakers, people with money and boats and beach houses, and we went on boat rides and drank a LOT and met up at houses and docks for parties ... I was the poor chick they let ride along because I had organization skills, sat on the committee for the March of Dimes Bid for Bachelors, and looked good in a bikini! LOL, hahahahaha

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm Newbie: Letting Ourselves Down

Oh Dustin, your hilarious recaps are more entertaining than the show! Your witty quips: "Whitney is merely studying our species." "Child, you can speak, " ..."which I didn't think could be uttered without a church fan in your hand." ...priceless! The dinner with Austen and his parents where his Mom barks out "Can we talk now?" was a hoot! Equal parts Corleone, Tony Soprano and Joan Rivers. I love these flawed, but highly fun to watch people and I'm addicted to your writing! (Just want to assure you I'm not a demented fan and don't have any voodoo dolls in my closet!)
