  1. Janet and I just passed through the place. It's not easy to eat well, but there are a few decent spots. I posted a report on Chowhound. Here is the link: http://www.chowhound.com/topics/453469
  2. @DonRocks, you probably already know this, but a Montgomery County player just signed with Clemson: "Bresee Signs Letter of Intent To Play at Clemson" by Joe Yasharoff on mymcmedia.com
  3. To anyone attending Clemson University during the glorious 1981-1982 season, when Clemson defeated Nebraska 22-15 in the Orange Bowl to become undefeated national champions, the name "William Perry" is universally beloved and just as famous as the name Brooks Robinson is in Baltimore. The Fridge has fallen upon unspeakably hard times, and barring a miracle, his best days are behind him, but he will always be remembered with fondness and affection. Thank you, William, for enriching all of our lives - we all love you. And I can personally vouch for any and all anecdotes you might hear
  4. I didn't see an appropriate topic in the index, was in the area two weekends ago and am bored so I figured I'd report. In Spartanburg I ate at the Beacon Drive In, which is apparantly a Spartanburg landmark. Served southern fried food and had a pretty classic feel to it. Probably wouldn't appeal to most of the diehard foodies on here but for what it was I thought it was pretty decent. Won't go in depth, just linked the site. Downtown Clemson really didn't have too many options, went to Wingin' It for some wings but by that point we had been drinking most of the afternoon so to me they tasted
  5. That's because you hadn't discovered the fried mushrooms at Nick's.
  6. When I was at Clemson (in Pickens County, SC), people would joke about the town of Ninety Six, which was just beyond the town of Due West. Among dubious tales of cow tipping (which I'd become convinced that I'd done (I hadn't)), there was the etymology of Ninety Six, which was supposedly named because it was 96-miles from Atlanta - I don't know how this urban legend ever got started, but it's false: Nobody seems to know how Ninety Six got its name. Fast forward to Ted Williams' final at-bat, in which he hit a home run. In a newly found, color film, I froze the shot of Williams'
  7. I guess this could have gone into the Charleston thread, but Hemingway is 82 miles away. Or the Myrtle Beach thread....but again, 60 miles away. It's 65 miles from my house, mostly through two-lane backroads. Hemingway only has one real claim to culinary fame.....Scott's Bar-B-Que, located on SC Hwy 261, at Brunson's Crossroad. Anyhow, after hearing word of mouth, the praises of more than one southern food writer--one of whom proclaimed Scott's (with understandable southern bias) to be the best barbecue on planet--and finally reading the New York Times artlcle linked below, I made a pilgrimage
  8. I just started two new forums: Colleges and High Schools, which are only visible to members (just for a little extra member-privacy). I'm hopeful that this will bring our membership closer together through common life experiences. I went to Clemson, because it was the only school I got into. But I liked it so much that I ended up staying for 5 1/2 years, for both undergraduate (Accounting) and graduate school (Computer Science). Any other Clemson Tigers here?
  9. Nov 30, 2014 - "In Conversation: Chris Rock" by Frank Rich on vulture.com This is a good interview. One thing that was incredibly poignant to me was Chris Rock's description of black people needing teeth pulled in Andrews, SC.
  10. If you enjoy a Louis CK-style of standup, you might enjoy Rory Scovel, who has recently come out with a Netflix special called "Rory Scovel Tries Stand-Up for the First Time." If you aren't familiar with Scovel (I doubt this is his first-ever stand-up, despite the name), he's a solid, somewhat unorthodox, talent whom I would put in the second tier behind the best-of-the-best. This is not to say that he isn't funny - there were moments in this routine that were laugh-out-loud funny - merely that this probably won't be "The Best" stand-up special you've ever seen. Still, I found it well-wor
  11. Larry Doby was the first player ever to go straight from the Negro Leagues to the Major Leagues, coming to the Cleveland Indians, just three months after Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier for the Brooklyn Dodgers. Cleveland owner Bill Veeck was considered just as progressive as Brooklyn owner Branch Rickey. Manager Lou Boudreau introduced Doby, one-by-one to the Indians' players ("This is Bob Lemon," and Lemon put his hand out to shake Doby's) - this was done with each member of the team, and everyone shook Doby's hand. Everyone, that is, but three people - Veeck got rid of those th
  12. I remember Shannon Faulkner very well - it was only 21 years ago when she had half the country wanting her to die. I also remember having very strong feelings that The Citadel (and the military) should remain all-male, and I was very anti-Shannon Faulkner while at the same time feeling very sorry for her, and the abuse that she took. Now that I'm older, and now that The Citadel has hundreds of male and female graduates, I look back and realize my "anti-Shannonism" was based very much on prejudice and preconceived notions - I justified it by saying something that I still think: Instit
  13. "Dancing 106-Year-Old Describes The Day She Charmed The Obamas: 'I Can Die Smiling Now'" by Colby Itkowitz on washingtonpost.com Seeing the joy in Ms. McLaurin outweighs any political issue - to me (with the possible exception of climate change) - that I can think of.
