    Anything I can spray on 130 year old brick to keep it from crumbling a little bit into my shower? There's tile 6 feet up in my shower and above that is the original brick (1888). When the water hits it little pieces (sand sized) come down in the shower. I want something I can spray on it to hold it together and protect it.

    The only thing I know to try would be a grout sealer.

    I don't think you can spray this on, but Plex-A-Seal (not Flex-A-Seal) is a product that you use to seal interior brick flooring and should work on a ceiling. It is a visible sealer and leaves glossy smooth shine on the surface, so that you can clean it easier. It does change the appearance, so you loose some of the charm of interior brick, but probably your best bet for this type of application.

    There are also invisible sealers that penetrate the brick and provide protection. Basically water will bead up as opposed to soaking in, which makes it easier to clean, but allows you to keep the charm of interior brick. These are used on a brick black splash for instance. I am not sure that it will keep pieces from falling off. I am sure they will provide some adhesion, but the surface is basically the same where the Plex-A-Seal you basically have an acrylic coating on top of your brick.

    Plex a seal sounds like the trick. Doubt someone would want to come in for such a small job so I guess I'll take it on this weekend. Thank you @triceratops

    I think it will be pretty simple. Just roll it on with a paint roller. The only caution would be a lot of sealers require the brick to be bone dry and that is a tough state to achieve in a shower. You might need to not use the shower in that bathroom for a few days leading up to installing the sealer and use a heater overnight to just get everything really dry.

    I have never used the product, but hoping to do some mock-up of these 1/2" brick tiles for floors, we are coming out with and might use some this week. If we get that far in the process then I will post the results.

    Read the instructions obviously as it will typically spell it out, but it says what to do on similar type products like polysands, etc. and people screw them up all the time anyway.

    Rednecks show up to fancy spots because they think it's cheaper... that's my guess.

    That's the damn problem. Way overcrowded with trash when I'm just wanting a good meal. I could give a fuck about it being restaurant week. Husk only had 5 or 10pm tables for tonight. Left it up to her to find somewhere so I'm in the dark on where I'm eating. Thursday night it shouldn't be tough to get in for dinner. Those Hicks won't go back the rest of the year and they'll just be ordering soup or salad

    Restaurant week in Charleston is typically a ripoff. Nice restaurants do three courses for $40 per person with abnormally small portion size and a pared down menu. Generally, one of those courses is a dessert, which I think is a waste. Best just to dine out for $40 a person normally, skip dessert, choose a dish you actually want, and avoid the crowd.

    That being said, I habe heard that Grace and Grit in Mt. P. is worth it this year.

    The Charleston restraunt week was legit when they first started it, but now it seems like the menus are super watered down and prices are up.

    Also the entre is always something cheap like shrimp pasta. You get whatever menu items have the highest normal profit margin. I've avoided restaurant week for years now.

    Did Hall's last Wednesday for my birthday. We did the RW menu, but of course, you have to order a few more sides like lobster mac and cheese and whatnot. Desserts on the RW menu sounded good, but what they put on the table looked like some sort of potluck throwaway that came out of a 13x9 baking dish. Throw in a bottle of wine, and we still spent $260 with tip. Great deal, that Restaurant Week.

    I went to Poogan's Smokehouse during resturant week and they had full size apps, meal (got the pulled pork and pork belly), and desert for 20 bucks. Was pretty good.
