Re: “Bill Murray, Brad Creger, and Mike Veeck's Food Truck-O-Rama expected to open this summer

I think it will do really well if pricing is set right (Santi's nearby is a great example...pricing is right and so is value). There are not enough restaurants in the upper peninsula but high demand lots of opportunity for the population there who are out walking, riding bikes and looking for new and different places to try...Santi's, Tattooes Moose, Moes, Lewis Bar B Q, Goat Sheep Cow, Rutledge Cab company, Park Cafe, Home Team, WorkShop, Butcher and Bee are just a few examples of restaurants doing very well in that area...demand is high... North Central/Upper Peninsula is becoming a hub for young families and professionals... great walkability, quiet little neighborhoods 1930ish bungalows --many homes being renovated, software companies, and great restaurants moving into the area. It's close to Hampton Park, Wagner Terrace, and it's right off the highway...When the Low Line goes in, it will be right at the entrance with a direct bike path through to Marion Square... pretty idea spot I'd say!!! If prices are set well, it will do great...love the idea that there will be variety and it can change and stay fresh. Love that area and can't wait until Food-Truck-O'rama opens!!! I know we awill be regulars!!!

Re: “During 'A Day Without Immigrants' strike, we revisit our chat with FIG's Lucy Becerra

Very nice profile of Lucy and her successes in the U.S... Wonderful story. I hope FIG and other local restaurants who have hired legal immigrants are paying them fair and equal wages as compared to non-immigrant employees witb similar experience (19 years, wow!) so hard workers like Lucy can someday visit her family so far away. Also, to keep perspectives balanced, the enhanced security of our US/Mexican borders is NOT intended to prohibit LEGAL immigration...It's to control/stop 'ILLEGAL' immigration/drug trafficking, etc. There is a difference. Not surprised that restaurants are staying open on this one.

Re: “Charlestonians participate in D.C. Women's March

Agree Kevin, most could not articulate why they were there, fighting for rights women already have...fueling the very divisiveness and lack of tolerance that they claim to be protesting against. The March had nothing to do with Woman's rights, black rights, gay rights, immigration, or any rights. Call it like it is...it was an anti-Trump rally...and certainly did not represent 'All Women.' There have been well-researched reports (NY Times) that it was funded and orchestrated by Soros and more than 50 partner organizations (like Planned Parenthood) so nothing 'grass roots' about it. I'm an educated woman, who voted for Trump and lived through and personally experienced times when things weren't as great for women as they are now (and no, I'm not a racist, bigot, or xenophobe). I don't dislike Obama--not a fan of some of his policies-- but really did not like Hillary as my view (based on facts and research) is that she is extremely corrupt, dishonest, and self-serving. I have been called all sorts of things and even classified as a sexist simply because I didn't vote for the candidate democrats wanted. Given the choices (which were not optimal for democrats or republicans), I voted for the candidate that aligns with my stance on policies and direction the govt needs to take. Although not the most polished person by far, I feel Trump honestly wants to improve our economy, national security, repeal healthcare policies which were doomed to fail by design, clean up govt overspending, and wasteful policies that have been layered on for years, and return the focus of the govt back to the people it serves instead of being self-serving and bloated. These changes are needed and long overdo. When did our country start resorting to name calling and mudslinging when they didn't win an election or agree on policies...Really?!? Time to raise our thinking up a few notches. Regina Hopkins (and as a faithful reader of this publication I am disappointed by City Paper's single lens view that I have seen so far in this paper).

Re: “After peaking at No. 1, Charleston falls out of Condé Nast Top 30 Cities in the World

This article is misleading in the beginning to lure readers in and could be easily taken out of context if only the first part is read (which i'm certain was the writer's intent). The title of the article is most misleading and inaccurate by saying charelston has 'fallen' when no such event took place. Based on the artical, it sounds like Conde Nast simply redefined their 'best city in the world' criteria and removed U.S. cities all together.
