Re: “Going behind the grill at Moe's Crosstown's iconic burger night

Moe's Crosstown reminds me of Charleston before it became Yuppie Central. Believe it or not, they used to be one of the only weekend brunch spots in town. Total legend.

Re: “Charleston only has two female distillery owners. That could change soon.

This article is incorrect. I am a female owner at Charleston Distilling Co and they did ask us for an interview and we compiled. This article is very false! There are 2 female owners in Charleston! Dont ever ask us for an interview again because you dont write the truth!

Would like to point out Charleston Distilling also has a female owner

Re: “What's it like to attend a virtual cooking class?

This write up definitely makes me want to do it, and Ive paid much more for a cooking class before, certainly with chefs of a lesser caliber than Sarah. Sounds like a great deal!!!

Re: “What's it like to attend a virtual cooking class?

Enjoyed both the fun of learning to cook a different menu from what I normally would and the end result was wonderful and will try it again soon. The cost was very reasonable to have a class where we prepared and could also discuss with teacher what she was doing and ask questions if we needed.
Also making it a great event was having a few friends over that help with prep and the pleasure of wonderful dinner..Wine paring also was spot on to make total experience wonderful and look forward to the next one..

Re: “What's it like to attend a virtual cooking class?

I definitely thought it was worth it! I spent less than I would have if I had gone out for dinner and I had leftovers for the next day too. Plus I didn't have to worry about ubering home after drinking. Looking forward to the next one!

Hi, this is Todd Weiss from Striped Pig Distillery. I dont know exactly where the quote from me came from, as I personally was never interviewed for this article. If you quote someone, you Best make sure who you are quoting.

Re: “Meet the roasters, bean brokers, and K-cup creators fueling Charleston’s craft coffee addiction

I love the way the "roasters" are creating a demand for really fancy, and expensive, coffee. I guess it is worth it, but the incredibly fresh coffee at places like Sunoco, Circle K, and other large, busy gas stations is perfectly tasty, hot, and relatively well priced. My father, who was 85 when he died, said coffee should not ever be more than 25cents a cup, and refills free. The cost for preparing a cup of coffee is pretty cheap, but all the foofa and bells and whistles really make folks think that the expensive brews are really great. Each to his own.

Re: “It's a can. It's a growler. It's a crowler.

$8 Crowler? I have yet to see one offered for less than $15. Once you pop that top, you are committed to finishing it, and then you toss (or recycle) the can. A growler is resealable, and the brew can last, maybe, 3 days, and they are refillable. Some high end growlers can be re-pressurized to keep the contents from going flat as fast.

Personally, I think the micro-breweries are pricing themselves out of the market. $8 or more for 16oz draft? $10.00 or more for a 6 pack? Come on. Its good, but its not gold. You should be able to sell at half that price point. Bulk grains are not that expensive. Bulk hops is not that expensive. Adjuncts are not that expensive. Sure, you need to pay your people, and the bank, but I can buy nearly 4 GALLONS of gasoline for the price of 16oz of your cold nectar, and you didn't have to move it but 50 yards, maybe, from the fermenter to the keg under the bar.

Re: “Where to get a sip with the kids

I wasn't saying the DUI was new-fangled, I was referring to the no accountibility

Re: “Where to get a sip with the kids

@Ima on that point we agree, except for the "newfangled" part considering how commonplace DUI w/kids was in my youth. We know better now.

Pull your sh*t together, parents.

Re: “Where to get a sip with the kids

Not the point at all, factory. A number of times at a few different locations I've watched Mom and Dad down 4 or 5 drinks in a couple of hours and then stumble to the car, kids in tow, to drive home. I know I'm old but I'm having a hard time accepting this new-fangled no-accountability thing.

Re: “Where to get a sip with the kids

I love all the down-votes in this. The proprietors of these businesses obviously seek to attract family business. However, despite the overwhelming selection of child-free hours at child-free watering holes it still bugs the childless that parents can go places with their kids that they also might want to. "I know I have all these choices, but I want YOUR place!"

An ironically childish reaction to people opposed to children in their midst.

That being said, fellow parents: wrap it up by 8 or 9. Our kids are not cool to hang.

Ghost Monkey is very kid-friendly: non-destructible furniture, Little Tykes cars outside, Nintendo games, board games, most people don't even bring their cars in the lot itself.
