Re: “Rutledge Cab Co. offers up a hearty take on the doughnut burger, but is it worth the experience?

Hilarious, entertaining writing....you have to be a nutritional kamikaze to even think about ingesting a gut-bomb like the Glazed and Confused ....but Dustin Water's article gives warning!

Re: “UPDATE: 30+ Charleston restaurants have signed on to the Strawless Summer Challenge

I think this is a fantastic idea. But you're still going to have people who want to have a straw. For those people the restaurant should buy bags of Twizzlers so that people could bite off each end and use the Twizzler as a straw it works and it's edible

Re: “Halls Chophouse, Taco Boy opening in Summerville's Nexton neighborhood

It will be an Great opportunity for locals to be able to go to a place like Halls Chop House and not have to go through the trouble of driving and parking downtown! Looking.g forward to Taco Boy coming too!

Re: “Halls Chophouse, Taco Boy opening in Summerville's Nexton neighborhood

Vito, I blacklisted myself from Hall's four years ago after three uniformly bad experiences over a six month period, and William, I and many others can easily afford to eat at Hall's but choose to give our money to half a dozen other local places that serve superior quality meals and sincerely respect and appreciate their customers. Glad-handing snakes in the grass with offerings on the higher end of mediocre are not for me, I prefer the real thing.

Re: “Halls Chophouse, Taco Boy opening in Summerville's Nexton neighborhood

In my expierence those that complain about Halls generally can't afford it. Never ever have I had a less than excellent meal or service. Might due Summerville some good to provide some quality non chain options to their residence finally!

Maybe LocalHutch could post his real name so the Halls could make sure to blacklist him from any of their establishments....

Re: “Halls Chophouse, Taco Boy opening in Summerville's Nexton neighborhood

If those irritating owners and sons of owners will just stay away from the restaurant it has a slim chance of success. We here in Summerville can see through the bullshit and don't need an overpriced, underwhelming steak house in the area. Nexton is not going to become a place for the rich and famous, and I would suggest they not try and make it so. Too many options vs. fighting traffic to get to that side of town. Taco Boy, however, has a great reputation with us normal folks and will be a great addition to our restaurant choices. Halls may be just a bit too pricey, though.

Re: “We shopped at Mt. Pleasant's new ALDI grocery store so you don't have to

a poster said, "This article itself illustrates how privilege can create bias owing to lifestyle marketing. 2. They hire from the community and pay a competitive wage, with benefits. 3. Their food is ethically sourced and sustainable. We all need to use our dollars to create a better world. 4. Reduced packaging pledge."

curious - what is your source for this information? Specific sources - and please don't provide a blog post as your source. And what does it mean - do you mean other grocery stores hire outside the area? ??

As far as wages, do you have a sample of wages at, for example, Publix vs. Aldi? My impression - recent Fortune Mar 3 2016 article - is that employees love Publix.

And the ethical sourcing - where exactly are you getting this information? Whole Foods would have us believe that very few people ethically source many things, as there are no uniform standards for 'ethical' or 'organic'. Many grocery stores make similar pledges, but Aldi has the benefit of being private so there is no public information unless you'd care to share it.

Thanks for your help. I know a lot of people like Aldi's (we do too - but I have no illusions about them making the world a better place, but it would be interesting to find out where you've derived that impression) but it is so easy to just make things up on the internet. Maybe you haven't done that - maybe you've got sources. Share them with us. thanks

Re: “Bill Murray, Brad Creger, and Mike Veeck's Food Truck-O-Rama expected to open this summer

Geoff, it says the address in the first sentence:

"It's been two years since we first reported on the possibility of business partners Bill Murray, Brad Creger, and Mike Veeck's Food Truck-O-Rama (2130 Mt. Pleasant St.)"

Thanks, Kinsey

So many news stories are good but lacking in "where". Good reporting=who, what, when and WHERE. Where is it?

Re: “Bill Murray, Brad Creger, and Mike Veeck's Food Truck-O-Rama expected to open this summer

I have a food trailer and I think it is a super idea. It will make available a nice venue to work in between large fairs and festivals. And provide customers a wide selection of foods and deserts not as easily found in most restaurants.

I have been excited about the project since hearing about it more than a year ago. Can't wait to see how it operates. The variety of food trucks here in Charleston should keep it interesting.
