Re: “Krazy Owls

Just ate at the Krazy Owl on John's Island across the street from the fat hen. I've eaten there multiple times and always enjoyed it. Last night I had the full rack of ribs,, mac and cheese and red rice. The full rack was delicious with a medium amount of meat not a huge amount but not a small amount, very satisfying. The mac and cheese and red rice or equally delicious and served in large portions and smoking hot which I really like.

They have a new big screen TV for sports that has to be 11 feet diagonal using a projection system. The picture looked good and is sure to satisfy sports fans. Combined with their full bar seems like a real winner. I suggested they have James Bond night and show Bond movies as that would be a lot of fun too if that's possible to do. So thumbs up on the Krazy Owl

Food snobs will easily be able to find something wrong anywhere they go but the krazy owl does a lot of things right and gets my vote.

Re: “Black Bean Co.

I am typically not one to complain or write a bad review but I felt this is something that needs to be said and could prevent and issue for customers in the future. My husband and I went here for lunch one day while celebrating our one year wedding anniversary in Charleston. I have a gluten issue (causes severe anxiety and tonic clonic seizures) and their website said they have gluten free options so we thought it was perfect.

We get there and I order a sausage, egg and cheese wrap because the board said it could be made with a gluten free wrap. I ask the server THREE times that she was sure it was gluten free (I even asked the type of wrap so I could confirm, but she didn't know, but promised it was). We get our food, after waiting quite a while, and begin to eat. I should have gone with my gut feeling because I knew something was wrong. The wrap was too chewy to be GF and did not taste right.

After the meal I went back to the register and asked if the lady could get my the packaging for the wraps. She went and got them and as soon as I got them I started to cry. First ingredient- ENRICHED BLEACHED FLOUR. It literally says on the front of the packaging CONTAINS WHEAT. I was livid. The lady (who was extremely sweet) immediately said "I am SO SORRY, we were told they were gluten free, let me go get my manager". She came back rather quickly and said "he wants me to give you a refund", so she did. I then asked if he was going to come out and speak to us because this was NOT okay. She proceeded to tell me "he is too busy", which was absolutely ridiculous. I did not care about the money, I wanted them to know that they could seriously hurt someone if they keep serving "allergy friendly foods" that are not what they are claiming them to be!

Luckily, I did not have a seizure, just a mild headaches and belly issues. It could have been a lot worse. TERRIBLE customer service (the manager, not the servers) for not addressing the issue with us directly.

ASK FOR THE PACKAGING BEFORE YOU ORDER IF YOU HAVE A FOOD ALLERGY OR SENSITIVITY!

Re: “1 Broad Street restaurant will unlock its doors Sun. Nov. 26

Menu looks awful. Kimchi? Pastrami lox?? Bialy. Where will they get those, unless frozen from the Lower East Side. You can only get from Manhattan. Why cant we get a place with straight forward food? And no pork, ham hock, pork grinds...or with Korean influences. Does everything have to be Southern in this town. Charleston is getting transplants from north of the Mason Dixon line. How about a schmear of cream cheese and nova?? Why re-invent the wheel? How about regular pastrami? I just dont get it?

Re: “Arlo Guthrie charts own path only to discover his father led the way

I enjoyed your paragraph, Ima. Arlo is outstanding as far as I'm concerned. I've seen him live on three occasions, I completely dig that the performer isn't in control of venue or ticket prices, but damn Sam...an individual can afford to see this legend..his music is real, it's still applicable, and he does a wonderful job getting it out there...Arlo, you're not forgotten, some still adore you...Thanks, Ima O.

Re: “Men accused of sexual misconduct are incapable of owning their actions

Thank you! Many years ago (early 90's) I called into a radio station (might have been Bubba's station) to complain about comments they had made about seeing a woman's genital area without her consent (I think it involved some sort of amusement ride). I was treated with frank hostility & ridicule. I never listened to that station again. And I have other stories. We all do. #MeToo

Re: “Resistance movement must fight hypocrisy to survive

Lynnar, of course not all who voted for Trump are racist. Some are not. Some voted for Trump because of issues like abortion and Obamacare and putting ultraconservatives on the Supreme Court and other courts. So only some voted for Trump because they are racist. But Trump is a racist. A biography of him quotes him on one page as saying blacks are lazy. He actually praised that biography book. He described the Mexican immigrants coming to the US as rapists, bringing drugs, etc. He married 3 women and all 3 were white, even though two of them were immigrants, and most immigrants coming nowadays are non-white. He called an American born judge biased just because he had Mexican ancestry. Even the Republican Speaker of the House called that comment racist. Trump said Puerto Ricans are not doing anything to help themselves after the hurricane, he said it probably because most Puerto Ricans are non-white. He hired Bannon who led Breitbarb, a website that publishes racist alt-right views. He said some of those in that alt-right demonstration in Charlottsville are good people. He said the racist Confederate monuments celebrating Confederacy should not be taken down. So of course he is a racist.

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

Clever, well-written.

I've sold three properties here, all "FSBO." Real estate agent friends react like "wow, you REALLY dodged some bullets there, don't try it again without using an agent, your luck will run out and..." something really bad will happen though they never mention what.

Re: “Resistance movement must fight hypocrisy to survive

I'm sympathetic to the Jewish history which is your birthright. Our very dear friend who was Jewish and an attorney in Manhattan told us a story about his father, a car mechanic in the Bronx. Walking down the street holding his father's hand, he was told- "See all these people on the street, son? The only real difference is their skin color. You can fit in here in America because you're white but the brown and black people can never fit in. Don't forget that and have compassion for all people!" He didn't forget that teaching and was one of the truly kindest people I ever met.
So I believe this is your blind spot, Ms.Lynnar, it is a very simple test to look in the mirror and see what color you are. Happy Thanksgiving...

Re: “Resistance movement must fight hypocrisy to survive

What happened to common sense and just being in the center? Forget being on the Left or the Right. I have never in my life encountered anything like this decisiveness in my life. Alt Left or Alt Right. Enough. And Im sick of hearing Trump being a racist, or anyone who voted for him being a racist. I feel there is reverse racism going on. As a Jew, I have experienced anti semitism all my life. Did I let that get in the way of my life? My parents were victims of Nazi Germany. My father survived Auschwitz and Dachau. He lost his entire family. My parents lost everything and had to start all over when they came to this country and experienced discrimination. Did it stop them? No. I grew up in a tiny little apartment. Did my parents want a house? Of course. But they couldnt afford it. I was embarrassed that my mother had to work. Where I was growing up most mothers didnt. I was a latch key kid. My parents pushed education on me. I went to a junior high school in nyc where they bused black kids . I went home to an empty apartment just like they did. So those kids had the same opportunities as me. No excuses.

Im really tired of all the blame that I get because Im white and minorities have been treated so badly in this country. Why do we never hear about the minoritys who made it? The doctors, lawyers, politicians. Forget all the athletes. And the entertainers. And its not my fault that a black person doesnt own a sports team. I think Jay Z has enough money to buy one. And lets not forget America voted in a black president. A black AG.

Why is it that every inner city is run by a black mayor and black city Council. All democrats. And still are poor, high crime and drug infested. That is my fault? Are you kidding me? Where are my taxes going. We spend the highest amount of money per child on education, and we rank one of the lowest in the world. And then you wonder why Americans are angry.

How about taking some accountability. How about staying in school. How about girls not getting pregnant in their teens and collecting welfare. How about the boys staying out of gangs. Its always excuses. White Supremacy. Keep telling yourself that. Keep blaming Trump. It got worse under Obama, so I dont know how you can blame Trump. I think its time for all of you to wake up and do some self reflection.
