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: “Mixson Club announces new chef and concept for B├ásico

How sad. We loved Basico. It was unique, tasty, and a great place to take friends. "Classic American Grill" fare can be purchased anywhere, so this change doesn't inspire me to make a special trip to North Charleston.

Re: “A 'bleeding' veggie burger lands in Mt. Pleasant next week

We drove from Ladson to Mt Pleasant to try this because of this article, only to find the location permanently closed. Not a happy camper. Did end up at Whole Foods to buy them and they are yummy.

Re: “Indigo Road launches loan program to help staff become homeowners

Sincere question: yes parking is a problem for f&b employees. Has anyone considered a solution like MUSC's? F&b owners could group together, secure a lot outside the immediate area and offer shuttle service to their employees. If enough restaurants and hotels worked together it would be a relatively cheap solution to a big problem.
The former Food Lion parking lot on St. Andrews Blvd could handle a couple of hundred cars and an old CARTA bus could handle the flow.

Re: “Indigo Road launches loan program to help staff become homeowners

Sounds like a great idea, however by rule most mortgages do not allow home buyers to borrow the down payment. Buyers can receive gifts from family and friends, but there can be no payback provision and the money has to be documented. Underwriters will want to know its source.
In the 33 years that I've been in the real estate business, I could have doubled the number of home that I sold over the years if my buyers had been able to borrow down payments. I hope that you're able to put together a plan that works for your employees!

The Beyond Burger is awesome - probably my favorite all-plant burger I've tried so far! A win-win-win for health, environment, the animals - AND tastebuds. :)

No, lynnar. As I stated in the story, The Beyond Burger is "not to be confused with first blood, Bill-Gates-backed competitor, Impossible Burger."

Re: “A 'bleeding' veggie burger lands in Mt. Pleasant next week

Now I wonder if it is the same as the Impossible Burger that I saw on the Walhberg's reality show. They were in SF and tasted a veg burger that tasted exactly like meat. The company is located in Redwood City. They took Paul Walhberg to the facility. They showed him how it is made. They told him currently they sold only to a small amount of accounts, but were gearing up to expand. They sent a sample to Mark as he was golfing at Pebble Beach. Yes, Markie Mark has come a long way. He took one bite and could not believe it. It tastes exactly like beef!! Not like a veggie burger. That's the point of the whole thing. Not to taste like a veggie burger. He asked the head of sales if they needed an investor!

I'm still waiting for a Wahlburgers to open in Charleston. They said after tasting this Impossible Burger, they want to put in all their chains. So I am very very curious if this is the same product.
