Re: “Guests go all out, vodka shots flow, and Anita Zucker takes to the dance floor at Tatyana's Ball

How very wonderful to see this event go back to its roots as a dinner and dance.

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

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!

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

I remember when I was told that food trucks could in no way make it in Charleston. And I have witnessed these "food parks" in action (in cities like Portland and Seattle). I've seen work. And I know, we are not Portland or Seattle, but our foodie culture is as strong (most likely stronger). So I'm on board.

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

We've got one about ready to open here in Ferndale, Michigan. It's called Detroit Fleat, and will have the trucks, indoor-outdoor seating, etc. It's going to be great! I hope they remember a bike rack for those who arrive on bicycles.

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

We will offer indoor and outdoor seating. A/C inside for those warm summer days. Sustainable grass/natural roofs on the containers and lots of trees on the porch will keep customers comfortable outside.

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

So with Mayor Tecklenburg's vowing to adopt, honor, and uphold the commitments to the goals enshrined in the Paris Agreement" mean that our city taxes will be going up to satisfy the provision of the Agreement that "developed countries" (the USA) should pay $100 billion annually to countries affected by climate change"?

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

While I think the idea, in theory, is great and I hope it's successful, I wonder how many people will actually travel to, and continue to support long-term, what is essentially an outside food court without the value added, and I use that phrase sparingly, attraction of a mall.

An open lot outside the city proper with a large container for a bar surrounded by food trucks doesn't seem to be the place to hang out when the temperatures are in the 90's. Food trucks make their money on not only providing excellent roadside food but the ability to go anywhere they can to sell that food. Their mobility is key to their profitability. This project eliminates that mobility.

As it stands now my thought is that Food Truck-O-Rama will be at best a nice two month novelty. If the creators / investors could make this project mobile, a weekly event moved around the area, possibly with live music, well then you might have something sustainable.

You can find Callie's Biscuits at other markets in town! Check the website for full list, but around town check in Burbages, Ted's Butcherblock, Mercantile & Mash and the Co-Op on Sullivans Island to name a few! http://calliesbiscuits.com/south-carolina/

Re: “The Agenda: Columbia mayor pushes local support for Paris accord; ACLU sues another S.C. county over jails

What do you think Mayor Benjamin will do reduce the world's CO2? Bike to work, sell his car, not use airplanes?

The Paris agreement is about money, unless he has billions of dollars to give to Africa for clean energy production, he can't do anything but talk. Sorry to seem cynical but that's reality.

Re: “Why are white men turning on women?

The question should be "Why western women are less appealing than videogames to males ?" but of course that's not possible in a gynocentric society where women have no responsibility, women are always seen as good, women can't be blamed and men have all the pressure, all the responsibilities, receive all the hate, have to accept misandric biases against them since they day they were born. Truth is that not only women are to blame for this, is the zeitgeist's bias that discourages any pursuit for long or even short term relationshits. When an entire society does nothing but hate on males through biased laws, biased schools, biased people, biased courts, biased colleges don't act surprised when those males stop caring about anything but themselves. That's right, this generation of gamers is a product of YOUR society that not only neglected them but outright hated, antagonized and demonized them.

Re: “Why are white men turning on women?

"Why are white men turning on women? "

> Pay less taxes
> More privileges
> Way easier to spare jail
> Can put any men on earth in prison just for yelling "i was raped"
> Get free things from the mighty government sugar daddy
> No need to sign up for the draft
> Can have female-only spaces and events.
> Bitch about some wage gap to get even more free stuff
> Get reduced penalties when commiting crimes (or spare jail, even after commiting monstrous crimes)

With this kind of treatment, even my dog would want to become a woman.

To hell with this male shit. Trap life here i go.

Re: “Trump's anxiety in Saudi Arabia gives hope

Oh how edgy, how brave.

Another one of your over-the-top opinion pieces demagoguing your own personal boogeyman, all things Trump. But I see now you've upped the ante by calling him a "dog", and by extension those who supported him and voted for him ("speaking out against cats in rooms full of other dogs") while the leaders of Saudi Arabia, a country that systematically subjugates women, that persecutes and kills gays and transgenders, where religious freedom is non-existent and where they routinely execute those who decide to leave Islam, these leaders you have singled out with praise as "lions and jaguars".

We're all eager to read in future opinion pieces what other colorful derogatory phrases you can come up with for your favorite obsession.

Re: “We probably shouldn't be shocked that 18 downtown restaurants have closed so far this year

Please point out the fact that some restaurants have the same ownership and simply re-branding, not closing.

Re: “Local municipalities should choose which heroes they honor

While I agree in principal with your opinion, but I don't find anything admirable in the City of New Orleans actions, in fact, they're more than hypocritical. I suppose it comes down to who's "oxen is being gored". They pat themselves on the back for removing all the Confederate memorials yet the individual responsible, more than anyone else in our history for single-handedly exterminating the Creeks, the Seminoles and my ancestors, the Cherokees, not only has the most prominent monument in NOLA, but the center square in the city is named after him. We even have his face on our currency. So spare me your righteousness New Orleans, when the creator of the Trail of Tears is the city's poster boy.

Excellent, Mayor Benjamin, and thank you for caring about our planet. I wish Mayor Techlenburg would do the same.
