Re: “Edmund's Oast

We ordered both charcuterie plates, and they were both solid. The beer selection is solid too. I went in June, so maybe it was the timing, but the crowd seemed very touristy, middle-aged, and well-heeled. I'm 40 and I was younger than most people there. Maybe my preconception of beer gardens as unpretentious, neighborhood places skewed my feeling, but I really did not feel very relaxed there. I couldn't imagine hanging out with my friends and just having a good time. And some of the beers were a dollar or so more expensive than I've seen them other places (like the Oak Barrel Tavern).

Another reviewer mentioned feeling ripped off on Upper King St. I know how he/she feels, since I've had that experience too. I wouldn't say I felt ripped off at Edmund's Oast; it just felt like I was being sold an up-scale brand that I didn't need or really want to pay for.

I do think I have to read more reviews before I check out new places. Unfortunately, a lot of them seemed aimed more at tourists with money to blow rather than locals just interested in a good meal and drinks.

Re: “Stegelin: A Hail Mary on I-526

Ha ha. He wants to collect a toll on a road the city doesn't own. Dang. We might as well vote to place tolls on roads in Ohio. Make them pay for it!

Re: “Charleston City Council backs county in I-526 completion

"If 50% of the people don't mind paying the toll for the convenience of the highway, then that means the local routes will have 50% less traffic. See how that works?"

Then the toll road can't generate enough money to pay back its bondholders. Investors won't buy the bonds if they think the toll road would go bankrupt, like the one in Greenville. Not many people will pay a toll for I-525, with its 6 stoplights and a 35-45 speed limit. It's a desperate idea that won't stand up to serious scrutiny.

Re: “A wiser Nikki Haley is finally ready to take the national stage


Didn't she attack her own party's front runner? How is that supporting the team, unless the "team" is a group that doesn't represent the will of the voters.

Re: “A wiser Nikki Haley is finally ready to take the national stage

I'm no Republican, but it seems like Nikki Haley falls in that no-man's land between Tea Party activism and Establishment Republicanism. Maybe at one time that seemed to be a wise bet, and maybe in the future it will be again, but for now, the Republican base seems to have only one word for politicians like Haley: Sellout.

Re: “Sea level rise is already changing our lives

Ha ha. The East Coast is actually sinking but not due to overbuilding. Our tectonic plate is subducting gradually but inexorably. But of course this is all sciency so all the climate deniers will ignore it.
