This December, we’re introducing the inclusion of two new sections to our publication— Carolina Forest and the Market Common. These are community pages that are sponsored by the Coastal Insider that will follow the same format— a place for these communities to share news and stories about their general area, as well as a listing of events.
In the months that lie ahead, we’ll begin to include more communities, and of course the Surfside Section will stay. By offering this, we hope to begin connecting the separate communities of the Grand Strand into the Coastal Insider, and include more information about this area as a whole, as well as providing a greater understanding about the unique features of each place. When you have a community of 100,000 people, branching out in this way gives us a chance to communicate to the population at large, and foster a sense of greater cohesion. We’re really excited to see how it unfolds and impacts our community.
Speaking of expansion, we want to draw your attention to this month’s front page article about Crepe Creations Cafe. I’ve known Larry, the owner, for years. And I’m excited about the new addition to his restaurant as well as the expanded menu offerings that include authentic French food— most notably the steaks.
Steaks have been missing on Market Common menus over the years— and Larry is serving Filet Mignon, NY Strip, and Ribeye. I’m a steak connoisseur, and I’m really looking forward to this! He’s also using only freshly squeezed juices in all mixed drinks— something that nobody else out here has done.
Larry and his wife Emma have created a homegrown restaurant venture, born right here in Market Common. I’m a big proponent of supporting local business, but I certainly think we should support the grassroots area businesses. That type of business has a deeper level of investment in their community because it’s creation is built from the local culture. Larry has listened to what the community wants, and builds his business from what he hears, and we celebrate that. We hope you’ll join us in that celebration
As always, we invite your feedback about our paper, and the content that you want to read.
