Re: “A Brief History of the Boiled Peanut

I moved to the border of North Carolina (and SC) a year ago from Colorado, and had never heard of boiled peanuts..I saw them at the gas stations and roadside stands, and finally broke down to try them. I love hot and spicy, cajun food so that style appeals to me. Now I am an addict and have happily found them at all the local grocery store Canned, Cajun style, from the brand 'Peanut Patch'. My other favorite new Southern treats are Hannah's pickled eggs (pink and very vinegary) as well as pickled sausage,(both sold in all the grocery stores) but, the best southern snack in the world is pickled okra! (hot, from the brands Old South and Taste of Texas). You can get most anything on eBay, Wal-Mart, etc online with a search, FYI. I get a HUGE jar of Old South pickled okra from Wal-Mart online, free shipping,and find such delicacies as Cajun pickled quail eggs from Louisiana (homemade, sent in canning jars) on eBay. I'm sure you can get canned boiled peanuts online. FYI. Try Peanut Patch..simmered on your stove top in 5 min, and very inexpensive, it's as good as the real deal.

Re: “Everyone you ever loved or cared about is now in real estate

I'm a real Realtor and this is hysterical. The "selling & closing" part of the business is the bonus, the rest is lead generating. Not so glamorous and yet so rewarding.

Re: “Could the crush of development mean curtains for the peninsula's theaters?

Sadly, these issues are nothing new. The arts community in Charleston has been struggling with the same questions and the same space / occupancy issues since the mid-1990s. As the director of the Arts Council who led a visionary study in 1994 which identified exactly the same questions, I've seen and heard all the issues. In Charleston, we have a dearth of affordable real estate, and lack neglected industrial areas which are the typical areas where arts projects flourish. Arts incubators like the one in Alexandria, Virginia started in industrial buildings in depressed areas. Charleston has lacked any sort of downtrodden area with masses of abandoned spaces into which the arts community could blossom. There was a slight glimmer with John Knott and the Noisette development in North Charleston...but that was a non-starter. As your article points out, it requires a rainmaker with capital to front the restoration expense of a neglected building. While Charleston has had a number of people who have funded the arts for years, these benefactors are passing on. And even if an organization had a benefactor, the organization still must have the ability to financially sustain a space after development - and ticket prices rarely account for more than a fraction of the cost of upkeep. I have hoped that Enough Pie will stimulate development in the Neck. Sadly, the desire for a clustered mixed arts district remains elusive in our community.

And if they're not in real estate, they're opening a restaurant...
