Clare’s Creamery

As we were taking our usual shortcut through #YeahThatGreenville, I saw this cute frozen treat spot among the trendy storefronts next to Fork and Plough. I mentally added it to our list of new places to try. The exterior looked promising. I confess I’m all about aesthetics…and good eats. I assumed it would be like…

The Dive on Augusta Street

This eatery is located next to Two Rooms, a home decor shop I occasionally like to peruse on the weekends. We were starving so we decided to take a chance since it was close. It lives up to its characterization as a dive. The interior is fairly small though there are a few full-size wooden…

Eating Our Way Through Greenville: White Duck Taco

Taco shops are popping up all over Greenville. Over the holidays, my sisters were visiting from Arizona and brought us a few tacos from this spot. We immediately added it to our “must try” list. White Duck Taco Shop has two locations-one in Hampton Station and one near Haywood Mall. We decided to check out…

Eating Our Way Through Greenville: Fork and Plough

This is another of those relatively new, farm to table spots that keep popping up around Greenville. They describe themselves as an “all-in-one restaurant, grocery store, and butcher shop.” I heard good reviews from colleagues who hosted a lunch there so Chris and I decided to check it out one Saturday while we were out…

Christmas 2020: Year of the Leopard

It’s that time of year. Time to scour the garage for all the Rubbermaid totes containing Christmas decorations from previous years and hunt for the perfectly priced (affordable + appropriately full) live Christmas tree. We always had a real tree growing up. Nothing says Christmas like the smell of a Douglas fir tree! I decided…

Todaro’s Pizza

My husband and some of his work buddies occasional frequent this hipster pizzeria joint for lunch so I wanted to check it out. It’s located off of Main Street in downtown #YeahThatGreenville near Urban Wren. It has a nice astroturf area to hang out and play cornhole while you wait on your pizza to cook…

Myles Pizza Pub

The Story This new to Greenville but four decades old pizzeria was highly recommended by my brother. It was covered a few times in The Greenville News so we added it to our list of eateries to check out. It’s located next to Eastlan Baptist Church (now Eastlan Newspring) near Greenville Tech. Although the space…

Restaurant 17 at Hotel Domestique

The Story I discovered this spot after following the Urban Petals (Greer, SC) Instagram account. Anna Stouffer, the lifestyle boutique owner and floral designer, has provided floral installations and arrangements for upscale weddings at Hotel Domestique. After seeing multiple weddings she designed at the hotel, I discovered it was located in nearby Travelers Rest. It…

Rick Erwin’s Level 10

The Story It was a cold and rainy night…just kidding. It was a beautiful and balmy southern afternoon when we went out to celebrate my birthday in August. I tried to guess where we were going but definitely wasn’t thinking about going to Spartanburg, SC. It is actually starting to a be really cool little…
