Re: “Best Deli

Thank you for allowing me to speak freely.

See y'all next year when East Bay Deli wins "Best Deli" again.

I haven't just let this "go away", and I don't plan to do so.

I'll be bringing this up every year until either:

A) They start to give employees their deserved gratuity instead of stealing it.

B) They place a sign by each register that informs the customer that all electronic gratuities go straight to the owner.

Re: “Best Deli

"stated damaging information that could not be substantiated."

Next time you go in there, ask any of the workers if they receive electronic gratuities. 100% of them will tell you that they don't (unless a manager is buzzing around them). I can absolutely guarantee this.

There: you have your substantiation. Fact.

I should say that I love this place, but I have a problem when owners are greedy like this. Tips are meant for employees, not managers and/or owners. I think it's also misleading that they don't disclose this practice to the customer.

Will I let this issue go? I don't think so. Here's a business that is absolutely flourishing, and they take gratuities from their employees' pockets. This is what happens at all of their (prospering) locations.

Re: “How humble Summerville became a Mecca of punk, metal, and hardcore in the early '00s

Although I'm sure Liberace always thinks he is right..ugh...in this case He might even have a small correct point.
As far as the fashion of punk... Long before Hot topic, the retail fashion franchise called Merry Go Round made lots of money selling bondage wear, spikes and belts to mall rats in the late 70s and early 80s.
Although Liberace may assume that the whole thing was never a threat to the system. He should realize many people became part of the system but still carried their ethos into their future careers. Look no further than Charleston's own Columbian Neckties. The lead singer, Carlos Salinas, took his political versions of hardcore music, lyrics and activism into a career with Amnesty International where he worked tirelessly for the better treatment and release of political prisoners.
Punk should prob be differentiated from the hardcore punk and thrash speed metal that quickly spun off from it. It would seem the kids from Summerville owe more to Minor Threat than any other influence.
I'm glad they had a great time. I personally find it a little disconcerting that as a generation they didn't find something completely their own but..oh well.
I'm sure i have some animosity towards them..considering it was their parents who constantly harassed, never understood and dismissed anything we did back in the day.
As something that just kind of erupted across the world, I can tell you no one thought about it as a future or even had any ideas that the music would become a subgenre of rock that might last into future generations. It was just our thing.

Ron Liberte, you have no clue what your are talking about. You cannot speak of what you do not know. You are not, never were, and never will be a punk. Therefore your opinion of punk ethos is worthless. Your idea of punk is far from what it actually is and was; past and present.

Agreed. She was amazing to watch. I am also happy to have learned a new word, "otaku."

Re: “Best Deli

Seriously? This place is kind of meh. Do they make their corn beef and pastrami in house ? I know they have to ship in their cheesecake, I am assuming they ship in everything else. Too bad, they are not a real deli. I think I'll walk over Craig Diehls place when I want a real sandwich. PS I don't have a clue what Pronghorn said, but whatever it was, I am agreeing with him.

Re: “Best Heart for Radio

Brad produced The BTS Radio Show and his passion and creativity are the reason I still do the show. He is and will be missed, but never forgotten.

Maybe Hannah will look into it. I've noticed that CCP doesn't pick on the ol' P&C any more...

Skaired?

Re: “How humble Summerville became a Mecca of punk, metal, and hardcore in the early '00s

There is a lot of good punk music out there, but the whole ethos of the genre is a joke. It's like middle-class college kids wearing Che Guevara shirts they bought at Hot Topic.

Their anti-establishment musings are extremely comical once one grows up and realizes punk does not exist outside of the system, and was never a threat to the system. In fact, the system co-opted the movement and turned it into a mass-consumed fashion statement from which it could profit.

Re: “Best Deli

Chris Haire is in the pockets of the powerful Big Deli lobby. They've infiltrated the top ranks of the CCP. We will not be silenced. Wake up sheeple!

Re: “Best Deli

Pronghorn,

I pulled them.

Reason: They were stating information that: One, was hearsay. Two, wasn't a part of a critical review of the restaurant. Three, stated damaging information that could not be substantiated.

Re: “Best Deli

Censorship on this? Really? Would it be possible for an editor or any City Paper employee to explain this to me, please? Thank y'all.

If you explained the deletions to me, I wouldn't have to make the same posts again – but that's not a threat.

Kinsey Gidick?

Surely Sam Spence can put this matter to bed.

Dude you sound super bitter. You and Rachel from the "We were punk before Summerville was" thread should meet up for coffee.
