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…

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…
