Re: “The Americano restaurant in Mt. Pleasant is for sale

The place sucked ! Food was just ok atmosphere was good prices were not to bad but it was the food. The menu was missing the Cuban feel it seemed more Mexican then Cuban. Had it really stuck with the authentic Cuban food I think it would've done really well. As a local I can tell you other locals so much as just another Mexican restaurant trying to Petray itself as Cuban.

Re: “The Americano restaurant in Mt. Pleasant is for sale

Maybe more people would support there business if they supported the other small local businesses that provided them services by paying their over due bills to them :)

Re: “Hank Williams Jr. is irritated with me

I can't get over this... like...Why do you feel that this article should be about your lack of judgment? Like... who the hell do you think you are? lol ?? The people want to read about Hank Williams Jr... not about the prissy feelings that fosters some snobby reporter.

Re: “Hank Williams Jr. is irritated with me

.... and I'm glad to see a narcissistic little prick like you centering a Hank Jr article all around you and your tiny wittle feelings (like anybody gives a fuck btw).

Grow up, kid and take notes. Lead, follow, or get out of the way. Jesus.

Re: “Hank Williams Jr. is irritated with me

"He WAS one of the most important artists in the original outlaw country music movement" ??? pff....no wonder he was irritated. lol and your article sucked too by the way. I'd actually suggest that your boss sends you to a interview question camp to tighten up your lame ass questions about the competition too. geez louize.

Re: “Are short-term rentals really bad for Charleston?

Hey Mr. Hendrix, sorry for your experience. But it sounds like a call to police/livability would have solved your problem. But you'd probably rather make sure NO Charleston homeowners can rent their property out, responsible or not. It's almost like you're saying, "well there was a spill in aisle four, so naturally...no more groceries for anyone." Lee Batchelder explained at the most recent meeting of the task force that there have been ZERO (that's right ZERO) calls about owner-occupied B&B's. Yet because of fear-mongering and knee-jerk reactions by a few "concerned citizens", the task force is now talking about restricting even bed and breakfasts in an authoritarian manner, not unlike how pre-civil rights era Charleston treated African Americans and their basic rights to life, liberty and happiness.

Re: “Yoga is taking over Charleston on the DL

The Charleston yoga community is truly a wonderful & inclusive family of diverse people. The teachers I've had the pleasure of practicing with are consistent in their faithfulness to the roots of yoga & inspiring in the way they each bring their own personality to the practice!

I told John he should have named it 'the American' with a menu featuring traditional American cuisine such as corn dogs

Re: “Activist Medea Benjamin doesn't stop to reflect

Just to clarify, it's Benjamin's daughter, Arlen, from her first marriage in Cuba, who is named after the Sandinista revolutionary Arlen Siu.

Re: “Are short-term rentals really bad for Charleston?

"The City of Charleston recently concluded four listening sessions which revealed that Charleston residents are generally in favor of allowing homeowners..."

"the majority of the city has expressed a desire in seeing develop, according to listening session data."

Well hot damn, that's good enough for me! What's more scientific than some "listening sessions," right Dwayne?

Hey, buddy, get one of those airbnb houses next door and let me know how much you like it. We literally had tour buses rolling up on Rutledge Avenue for parties. It was fantastic. Idiots pumping music and having a good ole fashioned hoot five feet from where people sleep. Guys with no shirts on sitting on the porch threatening anyone who said anything about them parking on the sidewalk. You'd no doubt love it, Mr. Green. And speaking of your undying love of property rights, can I put in a pig farm and strip club next to your house? If I own the property, why should you object?

Hey, folks at the City Paper, just have a software program take over writing for Dwayne Green. A bot could write something just as predictable and inane as Dwayne without all the lawyerly dissembling.

Re: “Are short-term rentals really bad for Charleston?

The most impactful issue with short-term rentals is not noise/pollution/traffic; it's that landlords converting their would-be long-term rentals into vacation rentals causes the long-term rental costs to skyrocket, due to decreased availability & higher demand. It's one thing for a homeowner to rent out a room in a house they live in, or post their home temporarily on a vacation rental site when they themselves will be out of town- it's a whole other bag to take a home that would be rented out to a permenant city resident and convert it to an airbnb to make a quick buck. It does the city as a whole a disservice. You want the people who make Charleston such a destination f&b town to be able to afford to live here? You want the tourists to keep coming back? Many cities have fought or outlawed Airbnbs specifically because of long-term rental inflation, not just because of the hotel industry.

Re: “Are short-term rentals really bad for Charleston?

Finally, a sensible and researched perspective, as opposed to the propaganda we've been getting from those with an interest in limiting their competition. Hotels, rampant development and lack of infrastructure are far bigger threats to the Charleston we all love.

Re: “What Would Schindler Do?

Schindler was an individual acting on his own, while organized religion is often a social construct and a distraction from the intent of God. While the Bible does speak of organized believers, it makes clear that they should be interdependent while providing protection, productivity, and outreach. Being organized is not the problem. Focusing on the rules and rituals of a religion is the problem.

Re: “Are short-term rentals really bad for Charleston?

Well written article. The task farce (yes farce) is comprised largely of opponents to STRs (by design, according to all evidence) and largely of people who live in the so-called historic district (including at least one member from the hotel industry, can you say, "conflict of interest"?) . They have been brazenly attempting to form a one-size-fits-all legislative position that would impose indefensible restrictions on the entire city according to what they and their persnickety friends would like, not what would make sense for the majority, nor what the majority of the city has expressed a desire in seeing develop, according to listening session data.

Re: “Activist Medea Benjamin doesn't stop to reflect

Isn't it wonderful that with all the things going on in Charleston and the world, that the CCP wants to provide us with another worthless Woods puff piece? This time it's to highlight a Cuban-born Marxist, named after a Sandinista revolutionary, who's activism is underwritten by numerous Communist organizations, in particularly the Workers World Party. She's also an avowed supported of the Cuba and Venezuela dictatorships and an anti-Israel proponent, natch! CCP political editorials, all leftist, all the time.
