Saskatoon Steaks, Fish and Wild Game

After years of talking about it, we finally made it to Saskatoon for Chris’s birthday. The name says it all. Think hunting lodge with lofty ceilings and wood as far as the eye can see. There was even a wooden grizzly bear at the entrance and a fireplace in the foyer. This place is the…

Papi’s Tacos

After checking out this small restaurant, I now think of the Saturday Night Live sketch with Chris Farley shouting about “living in a van down by the river” when it comes to mind but I digress this is a food blog. I heard of Papi’s a few years ago when it was mentioned in an…

The Lazy Goat

Now that we are in our eighth year of marriage, we are running out of new spots to try for major holidays. There is a good bit of turnover in the #yeahTHATgreeenville restaurant scene so there are always new places to try but not places on the anniversary/birthday/Valentine’s Day level. In 2022, Valentine’s Day was…

CAMP (Downtown Greenville)

For my birthday this summer, I wanted to try a new eatery in the Camperdown development in the heart of downtown Greenville. My husband and I had been watching the construction for the past couple of years. I read about CAMP, a modern American eatery, in a GVL Today newsletter. Its claim to fame is…

Fall in the Courtyard: 2021 Edition

Decorating doesn’t have to break the bank. I probably should invite someone over to enjoy all this decorating but until then I’ll just be over here planning my Christmas decor. ​

Rocky’s Hot Chicken

This popular spot opened in Greenville, South Carolina, within the last year or so. When it first opened the lines were incredibly long and out of the building. One Friday, we decided we had plenty of time to wait so we made our way to Rocky’s. It has a decent-sized parking lot across the street…

Home Team BBQ

Y’all know how we are about our barbecue. Chris lived in Kansas City for a few years. We traveled all over Texas just to eat barbecue one summer vacation. Try Lockhart’s in Dallas. Anyway, our favorite local place is SBH BBQ. Of course, Henry’s is a respectable option. There are a few hipster BBQ places…

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…
