Re: “The Charleston Lie

...I heard him explain that my peninsula neighborhood is getting "besieged upon by people on welfare."

WTF kind of tour is that dude giving? "Come one, come all to my tour of the besieged hellscapes of Charleston! You heard about it in the President's inaugural address, now experience it first hand in an entirely unprotected and slow pedicab!"

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

Re: “What to do when the population grows and housing options shrink

Living and working in Charleston, heck the Lowcountry, is already cost prohibitive. Consider the number of hours people sit in traffic, multiply that by their hourly wage, and then add on the time away from family, friends or other obligations (which typically can't be measured), and we see a sum of a net loss. Yes, we've become popular and everyone wants to move here. But pretty soon, we are going to become the next Atlanta or Charlotte. It's just a matter of time.
And for all the locals, like myself, who cherish and exude the sweet manners, diverse culture, and southern dialect that attract so many transplants will quickly disappear.
Come together to support initiatives? I'm all for that. But it appears that those who want Charleston to explode into a mini-metro area of 'wealthy' residents have the upper hand.

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.

Re: “Mark Sanford rode a tiny motorcycle while forcing BuzzFeed reporters on a tour of his plantation

I can't believe I'm saying his, but for the first time ever I'm behind Mark Sanford on an issue. If the idiots at Buzzfeed thought they were going to get another kind of experience in spending the day with him, they apparently didn't do their homework. I've never seen an incident like this before where Sanford actually seemed of superior intellect and character than his interviewers. I guess that's a result of an age where rank amateurs only need a camera and a microphone and can claim credibility on the internet. If you can come off looking like you were sucker-punched by Sanford you need to find a job you're capable of. Good on ya, Mark.

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.

Re: “Charleston Mayor Tecklenburg joins city leaders in vow to uphold Paris climate agreement

The Mayor's proposals indicate the sincerity of his belief in climate change and the potential harm to the port city if no precaution is taken to avoid it.
I commend him in his foresight, but it is an unreasonable stretch to connect these actions to the Paris Agreement. True, both rest on the belief that global warming is real and that man can alter or mitigate it, but beyond this, there is no action that any mayor can take that specifically parallels the requirements of the Agreement. It is inconceivable that any American city can or will take on the substantial financial burden that the Agreement demands on its members.
The only connection of the two is spiritual.

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

I think it will do really well if pricing is set right (Santi's nearby is a great example...pricing is right and so is value). There are not enough restaurants in the upper peninsula but high demand lots of opportunity for the population there who are out walking, riding bikes and looking for new and different places to try...Santi's, Tattooes Moose, Moes, Lewis Bar B Q, Goat Sheep Cow, Rutledge Cab company, Park Cafe, Home Team, WorkShop, Butcher and Bee are just a few examples of restaurants doing very well in that area...demand is high... North Central/Upper Peninsula is becoming a hub for young families and professionals... great walkability, quiet little neighborhoods 1930ish bungalows --many homes being renovated, software companies, and great restaurants moving into the area. It's close to Hampton Park, Wagner Terrace, and it's right off the highway...When the Low Line goes in, it will be right at the entrance with a direct bike path through to Marion Square... pretty idea spot I'd say!!! If prices are set well, it will do great...love the idea that there will be variety and it can change and stay fresh. Love that area and can't wait until Food-Truck-O'rama opens!!! I know we awill be regulars!!!

They have these in several different places in Honolulu and it isn't exactly 75F and breezy there in the Summer. Having dedicated drops for power (and gas?) will cut down on the heat, fug, and noise.

Add a 10x10' shaded stage for lice music and I'll be even more tickled!
