Re: “Where to get a sip with the kids

I wasn't saying the DUI was new-fangled, I was referring to the no accountibility

Re: “Where to get a sip with the kids

@Ima on that point we agree, except for the "newfangled" part considering how commonplace DUI w/kids was in my youth. We know better now.

Pull your sh*t together, parents.

Re: “Where to get a sip with the kids

Not the point at all, factory. A number of times at a few different locations I've watched Mom and Dad down 4 or 5 drinks in a couple of hours and then stumble to the car, kids in tow, to drive home. I know I'm old but I'm having a hard time accepting this new-fangled no-accountability thing.

Re: “Where to get a sip with the kids

I love all the down-votes in this. The proprietors of these businesses obviously seek to attract family business. However, despite the overwhelming selection of child-free hours at child-free watering holes it still bugs the childless that parents can go places with their kids that they also might want to. "I know I have all these choices, but I want YOUR place!"

An ironically childish reaction to people opposed to children in their midst.

That being said, fellow parents: wrap it up by 8 or 9. Our kids are not cool to hang.

Cause Good Parenting magazine says you need a kid-friendly spot where yours can play while you get hammered before you drive them home

Ghost Monkey is very kid-friendly: non-destructible furniture, Little Tykes cars outside, Nintendo games, board games, most people don't even bring their cars in the lot itself.

Re: “20 Charleston spaces, 88 F&B concepts

I only know 1 man that retired from the restaurant business with anything...then he died! Tough, dumb business....

Re: “20 Charleston spaces, 88 F&B concepts

I think 103 N Market was also Bull & Finch at some point. Also, after the Hoagie Haven left King St, they re-opened at 41 George.

Re: “A sobering look at Charleston's food changes over 20 years

I loved this article. Please continue to talk about how we pull back from Disney-fication, with new hotels going up at an alarming rate, "best of" awards overwhelming us, the work-force needed to sustain the increased interest unable to afford to live within walking distance, parking being prohibitively expensive for workers, and mass transit non-existent.

Re: “Strawless Summer challenges Charleston bars and restaurants to give up plastic straws

What's wrong with paper straws?? I used those all the time when I was a kid! They are biodegradable.
They made paper straws up until the Sixties when they were replaced by plastic straws.

Re: “Strawless Summer challenges Charleston bars and restaurants to give up plastic straws

As an avid outdoorsman, I am very conscientious about the environment. That being said, I was surprised during a recent visit to one of Charleston's great restaurants, when we were denied straws for my wife and children. My two children are very young and have difficulty drinking without a straw, and my wife has severe periodontal disease. Per request of her periodontist, she is instructed to use a straw when consuming liquids. This is due to the extreme sensitivity that can be associated with this condition. Luckily, my wife happened to have a few straws in her purse, and the issue was avoided. While I appreciate the sentiment of wanting to conserve the environment with every effort, I believe there are more reasonable ways to approach this, such as more adherence and enforcement to the current laws regarding littering, particularly in areas where wildlife are more likely to be encountered, i.e. our lovely beaches and parks. I will be sure to bring a handful of straws wherever we go from now on. We recycle very efficiently as a family, completely filling a large city recycling (blue) bin, on a weekly basis. I am also an avid fisherman, who has practiced "catch & release" for many years. Also, when I am enjoying the outdoors, I try to take more trash with me than when I started, picking up litter, especially fishing line, along the way. Thank you for considering our perspective on this matter.

My children are very young and have a difficult time drinking without a straw, and my wife has severe sensitivity due to her condition, and per instruction from her periodontist, must use a straw for fluid consumption. This is a very painful condition, for which she has had to undergo countless procedures and even surgery. While I appreciate the sentiment of wanting to help the environment, I believe there are more reasonable ways, such as further enforcement of the current laws regarding littering, particularly in areas where wildlife is more likely to be encountered, i.e. area beaches and parks. Luckily my wife happened to have a few straws in her purse, and the issue was avoided. From now on, I will be sure to pack a handful of straws wherever we go. We recycle heavily, and actually fill an entire large city recycle bin each week, which at least matches our waste output. I am also an avid fisherman who has practiced "catch and release" for many years. I also try to pick up trash, especially fishing line, wherever I happen to go. Thank you for your consideration.
