Re: “Charleston needs an all-ages, mid-cap venue that caters to all genres

colton... sometime's the lease rate is so high (lemme tell ya how i know!!) that we rely on ticket sales ourselves. it's part of their business model. and until I have the money to renovate my building the exact way I want it... i will be stuck at a 450 cap myself, but i have room for 1150 if i re do the baths...

Re: “Grace and Grit to open in Mt. Pleasant with a focus on good ole fashioned Southern hospitality

Hi Marion!
We pride ourselves on honesty of sourcing and fully respect your interest in ours! My husband, Frank Kline, is the chef/owner. So this is straight from the horse's mouth ;-) All of our shrimp will be locally sourced from hopefully either Capt. Tommy Edwards and his boat Mrs. Judy Too on Shem Creek, or Karl Denney of Fresh Shrimp, who gets his shrimp from various boats from the Wando River to Shem Creek. In the past, he has also sourced from Rutledge Leland of Carolina Seafood in McClellanville, and they remain a possible source for us in the future as well! We will always be 100% transparent with where our food comes from and we will try our hardest to always keep it as local as possible!

Re: “Comparing Charleston's dueling bike share programs

Why in the world is this considered "Ride Sharing?" This is obviously a case of profit-making bike rental.

Re: “Lindsey Graham calls Trump tweet 'beneath the office,' Tim Scott tells president not to be distracted

tupper - off subject - why do you call Tim Scott by his last name and Lindsey Graham by his first? In other situations that might be considered prejudicial treatment.

Re: “Charleston needs an all-ages, mid-cap venue that caters to all genres

Again kids, the real world is about economics. These music venues are not non-profits. Each one bases their booking on a business model that works. To you frustrated promoters - you can bet that if you have a product that you could show would produce the revenue they need they would book you. From my years of experience as a club performer, the promoter takes his cut, then the talent gets paid and if the venue doesn't cover expenses... oh well. Of course the promoter complains if he can't get booked, he makes no money, but he is the first of the group to cash and his risk is minimal. He doesn't lose money like the venue does if the show flops. Again provide a product that the public is willing to pay for and you'll get booked.

Re: “Charleston needs an all-ages, mid-cap venue that caters to all genres

Not to mention pour house makes it almost impossible for an outside promoter to host an event there... When the pour house and music farm mainly stick to inhouse promotions(which is fine for them) but it makes it hard for a promoter such as myself, to bring in the talent that I personally see MY friends leaving town to go see.

Scott is proving what he is.....a willing ostrich.....making him complicit with the antics of trump. Scott is unable to think for himself so he lets the rich, white elite do it for him - and it shows. Glad Lindsey at least has some character - some.

Re: “Charleston needs an all-ages, mid-cap venue that caters to all genres

I don't really see the diveristy at pourhouse. Great venue I have seen Mutemath there was awesome, but it is a constant barrage of bluegrass. hipster, and jam band music...Just go pull up their calendar anytime of the year, like now, and it's easy to see.

Re: “Charleston needs an all-ages, mid-cap venue that caters to all genres

@ Folly Music, what more can I ask for? You said it yourself, the only genre it doesn't host is death metal. And that needs to be included. The key phrase in the article heading is ALL GENRES. Same goes for any style of heavier music (hardcore, grind, progressive, metalcore, etc), we need a mid-sized all ages venue that caters to ALL genres.

Seems like a natural fit for upper King, say around the Morrison drive junction. Plenty of food places but only live music venue in that area is Home Team. Good luck!

Why not? Tim Scott is forever distracted by the shiny sparkle of his beloved supreme ruler, Donnie Trump.

Re: “South Carolina’s rural roads named deadliest in the nation

factory, part smart-ass, part accusation on my part. First a play on "guns don't kill people, people do." Second, yeah, in general our roads are crap, but until a majority of South Carolina drivers don't believe that turn signals, speed limits, and a dozen other laws are just optional suggestions we're going to be at the top nationally in highway death rate.
Quick, somebody all Conde Nast - here's another #1 we qualify for.

Re: “A look at the future of Charleston's transportation system

The Lowline park can fit aBus rapid transit busway and still be a wonderful place Cambridge England runs BRT on an old rail corridor and it works great. Here is the video of how park, bike path and bus way coexist there. In all likelyhood someone who is influential doesn't want our rapid transit line near their property and they're working to sabotage it going where it needs to be, forcing it on to a congested meeting street where delays will be inevitable. here is what we could have. https://youtu.be/10UY3WC4nDY

Coming from an actual chill girl, there's a lot of drama going on in this article, little having to do with men.

Re: “Mayor Tecklenburg thinks body cameras keep black people safe

Thank you Jessie! You captured the essence of what, I'm sorry and deeply disappointed to say, appalled me about the mayor's 35 minute commentary. My jaw literally dropped at some of the things he said. Regardless of whether or not you support CAJM, their call to action, or their tactics, they are not the enemy. And they did not attack the mayor, the police chief, or CPD. Yet in his remarks he accused CAJM of doing just that, as did others. And in so doing, he and others attacked CAJM. This was deflection. Unfortunately this defensive display moved us away, not towards, the unity he -- and we -- crave.

Re: “What dating stereotypes and workplace habits have in common

I didn't realize you two were dating, but now that you've decided to inject yourself as the white knight (or is that white privileged knight?) try to come up with an original thought and a comment on the piece for once.
