  1. I really hate to see that Columbia County is following Richmond County down into the gutter of debauchery with these trashy shows promoted to Godless parents who would expose their children to such smut. But when you invite trash to move into your county for growth and money this is what you get without screening them before they come. As for the business that support it, they should all be boycotted by the good people of Columbia County.

  2. Savannah River Brewing isn’t across from the most popular family park and playground in the county. The social media content from “Molly Hangover” (an intentional MDMA/ecstacy reference) should put people off the family friendly claim.

    Did not know that Stay was heavily funded by taxpayers though. That’s useful information.

  3. I’m more concerned they are government funded.

    Hard working eateries like Pizza Central, Pizza Joint, Augsburg Haus, Suite 10, etc don’t have that luxury.

    My request is for everyone to support true, I dependent businesses.

    • If it were an adult only event, it would likely not be permitted per County Code… I am of the opinion the advertisers had to promote a normally “ADULT” event as “ALL AGES WELCOME” to circumvent county code. The host of this event, also hosts other events in Richmond County that are “ALL AGES WELCOME”… anyone curious what type of show is put on… would be a good indicator of what was planned at this venue…

  4. It seems like Richmond and Columbia counties are going the way of the big cities. If adults want to go to things like this, that is one thing, but don’t allow children to be exposed to this trash. As for me, I would boycott this place and any business that supports it.

  5. With the established longstanding venues for these drag shows being gay bars, gay nightclubs are the sponsors really so dimwitted as to be surprised by the ” ensuing controversy ” caused by moving into a venue so mainstream that even children are welcome ?
    For me this is just another obvious play at pushing the envelope,

  6. While the participants may say the show is family friendly, you can not control the environment. Will the drag show be confined to the inside or bleed to the outside. Will people begin stuffing money into underwear, bras or otherwise. Will the conversation become unsuitable.

    That area is meant to be a venue for children and families. The commission should not have approved funds that do not foster family activities.

  7. Was not impressed with Stay Social the first and only time I went there…..definitely won’t be back now. If I wanted this kind of entertainment I would be living in Richmond County. Columbia. County should be keeping trash like this out.

  8. The owner has stated that this is the “1st” implying that there will be more drag shows at Stay… wonder if they will advertise for “all ages welcome” and “family friendly” in the future… who knows… they may even have it outdoors on a weekend when families are all around!
