  1. Cackalack Origin?

    Thanks, Gigalopolis. The term being Gullah influenced makes a lot of sense. However, since the Gullah region is mainly in SC and a portion of GA, I'd like to think that would mean the term originated here. In any regard, I like the term and never once found it offensive.
  2. Cackalack Origin?

    Any takers? 21 people have viewed but someone has to have an answer..........or maybe opinion???
  3. Cackalack Origin?

    I haven't posted on this site in years and recently thought about it when I happened to be thinking of where the origin of the term Cackalacky came from. I have searched and searched the internet and asked around but no one seems to know the origin. Some people told me that it originated in and is used to mainly refer to North Carolina (which I must say highly offended me ), others say it started with rappers mentioning it in their songs in the late 80s to early 90s. Some people stated that they have heard the term long before then. So my question is....where does the term come from? Do you consider it to be an offensive term or one of endearment? Personally, I think it's a cool nickname but I'd like to know more about the history of it so someone please school me .
  4. I'm suprised there isn't a topic dedicated to N. Charleston landing the Boeing plant. This is big news!
  5. Columbia Place Mall

    So is the Old Navy in Cola Place closing or not?

    HUH! Old Navy @ Cola Place? I thought it was doing well.

    I do not really eat much seafood but I've been told that Hyman's Seafood on Meeting street is the best. I believe what I've been told only because everytime I past the place when I'm in Charleston, the line is out the door and about a block down Meeting st. The website is http://www.hymanseafood.com/. I think Rachael Ray did a segment on Hyman's on her 40 dollars a day show.
  8. Sumter Developments

    It's located on Harvin street which is about 1 block west of Main street. It used to be many things; most recently it was a storage facility which had been abadoned for several years. I may take some pic and post them to this forum.
  9. Historic Congaree Vista Developments

    I saw that also. Is that going to be M Cafe's second location DT or are they going to close the one on Sumter st?
  10. Sumter Developments

    And Sumter Mall can use some work (ok a lot of work) but it isn't the worse of worse. It has served it's purpose since it opened in the early 80s. I'm sick of people not from Sumter complaining about what our mall lacks. HELLO. Don't come to Sumter looking for Saks Fifth Ave or Bergdoff Goodman. The city really isn't all that big and there are lots of cities that are Sumter's size that do not even have a mall. The mall is what it is for right now and unless anyone has the money to buy and renovate it, please send your complaints to the owners of Sumter mall and not Sumter's residents.

    Yes Sumter does have a lot of chains. However, if you get off of 76/378/Broad street you will find lots of local restaurants. I myself like Stellato's in Dalzell/Shaw AFB for Italian. Also, I recommend Pizza Lane for pizza. I understand your disdain for chain restaurants but in case you didn't notice the Starbucks you're whoopty dooing about is in fact a CHAIN
  12. Charleston Off-Topic

    Did anyone hear that the Ravenel bridge may not hold its title much longer as the longest cable stayed bridge in N. America? From what I saw on the news, a bridge is bring constructed in either Lousiana or Arkansas (I forgot which one) that will span a little longer than Charleston's.
  13. Columbia Area Developments

    Thanks. Although I think it's a weird place for a neighborhood (hopefully it's not a subdivision). I hope there's some retail in store for the area though.
  14. Columbia Place Mall

    Since Columbia Place is doing so well, I wonder if they'll bring GAP back. We all know Columbia needs more than one Gap store. Anyone?
  15. Columbia Area Developments

    Any news on why the land is being cleared on Garner's Ferry road near/on the old dairy farm in front of Bi-Lo. If I'm not mistaken it seems that I heard a while back that there was going to be some type of lifestyle center there.
