Re: “Rick Eager proves that "fish farming" isn't a bad word

I know these comments were made a few years ago BUT, read them now with what we know and it's a little bit funny! All farms, whether you like it or not use pesticides! They are not going to let insects eat up there crops, period! Something I aways find amusing, you go into a restaurant and ask for iced tea, we are in the south right? They put a wedge of lemon on your glass, most people either squeeze it or just take it off and drop it into the glasss of tea, right? If you don't believe me, watch sometime! That's what happens. The lemon is probably the dirtiest most "infected" item in the restaurant with pesticides, grime, dirt, etc. I have been in the business for many many years and never have I seen a restaurant operator washing lemons before cutting them into wedges. I'm sure some do but not many! Are you really going to get in an up roar about soy? There are many many many other things alot worse and nothing is being done about them and there are simple solutions to fix those problems! Fish farming is something to help us with what is going on in our oceans. Farmer must make money to do it or they can't stay in business! Think about it!

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: “How to Rid Your House of No-See-Ums

I live in North Carolina and this is the first year we have had the noseeums here.
I am the only one besides my grandson they bite. I have been trying to get them out of my house and it does not seem to be working. I purchased some spray over the internet and we spray every time we leave the house. My husband never gets bitten, this I do not understand. I know I have as much as 100 bites and I am sure when we had the last bad storm that came up from Florida that is where they came from. NC does not spray even for mosquitoes and they use too.
Would love to see that change, I contacted my county commissioner to no avail, he will not get my vote next time.

Re: “A Brief History of the Boiled Peanut

I moved to the border of North Carolina (and SC) a year ago from Colorado, and had never heard of boiled peanuts..I saw them at the gas stations and roadside stands, and finally broke down to try them. I love hot and spicy, cajun food so that style appeals to me. Now I am an addict and have happily found them at all the local grocery store Canned, Cajun style, from the brand 'Peanut Patch'. My other favorite new Southern treats are Hannah's pickled eggs (pink and very vinegary) as well as pickled sausage,(both sold in all the grocery stores) but, the best southern snack in the world is pickled okra! (hot, from the brands Old South and Taste of Texas). You can get most anything on eBay, Wal-Mart, etc online with a search, FYI. I get a HUGE jar of Old South pickled okra from Wal-Mart online, free shipping,and find such delicacies as Cajun pickled quail eggs from Louisiana (homemade, sent in canning jars) on eBay. I'm sure you can get canned boiled peanuts online. FYI. Try Peanut Patch..simmered on your stove top in 5 min, and very inexpensive, it's as good as the real deal.

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

I'm a real Realtor and this is hysterical. The "selling & closing" part of the business is the bonus, the rest is lead generating. Not so glamorous and yet so rewarding.

Re: “Could the crush of development mean curtains for the peninsula's theaters?

Sadly, these issues are nothing new. The arts community in Charleston has been struggling with the same questions and the same space / occupancy issues since the mid-1990s. As the director of the Arts Council who led a visionary study in 1994 which identified exactly the same questions, I've seen and heard all the issues. In Charleston, we have a dearth of affordable real estate, and lack neglected industrial areas which are the typical areas where arts projects flourish. Arts incubators like the one in Alexandria, Virginia started in industrial buildings in depressed areas. Charleston has lacked any sort of downtrodden area with masses of abandoned spaces into which the arts community could blossom. There was a slight glimmer with John Knott and the Noisette development in North Charleston...but that was a non-starter. As your article points out, it requires a rainmaker with capital to front the restoration expense of a neglected building. While Charleston has had a number of people who have funded the arts for years, these benefactors are passing on. And even if an organization had a benefactor, the organization still must have the ability to financially sustain a space after development - and ticket prices rarely account for more than a fraction of the cost of upkeep. I have hoped that Enough Pie will stimulate development in the Neck. Sadly, the desire for a clustered mixed arts district remains elusive in our community.

Re: “James Island's White Duck Taco Shop has closed

So let me get this straight, Josh - a restaurant that in 3 years hasn't gotten enough customer support to stay open is a "restaurant with potential?" And open restaurants keep condos out? Seriously, that's how your thought process works?

Re: “Is S.C. next? Steve Bannon is trying to sway GOP primaries across the country

Cannot wait to vote for Catherine Templeton!

There are worse criminals operating under the state capitol dome in Columbia, SC than some of those currently enjoying lifetime careers of graft and corruption under the capitol dome in the District of Columbia - Washington, DC. Some would even make the narco regimes in Colombia, South America look legitimate by comparison.

Re: “Former Veggie Bin location rezoned to make way for housing

That's the 2nd time in 2 years City Paper has implied EBTV is closing or in trouble. As a regular customer myself, I was just told last week that 2017 has seen their best profits ever.

C'mon, CP- I love this publication, but how about a more balanced article, or maybe showing one of the last remaining services/core businesses on the peninsula some love?

We need to reform the Republican party. It's outrageous how some senators/politicians in the party are attacking Roy Moore.
They might as well register as Democrats.

East Bay True Value, Adam reported the facts of what was said at the meeting. He did not imply that the feelings of Fred Turco were your own, he merely quoted what Turco said.
