  1. Big week ahead for Greenville as far as events go! First, Greenville Startup Week: http://greenvillestartupweek2015.sched.org/ Followed by Euphoria (http://www.euphoriagreenville.com/), Indie Craft Parade (http://indiecraftparade.com/) and Farm Fresh Fair (http://www.thefarmatraboncreek.com/2015vendors/) over the weekend.
  2. Not sure if you all are familiar with Airbnb, but I've been excited to see the offerings in Greenville grow over the last few years as this has quickly become my preferred way of exploring new cities. Lately I've heard a few rumors that Greenville Airbnbs are getting shut down. Was hoping someone on here knows more info or can explain the issues with renting out your personal property. Is this a zoning thing? Something about competing with hotels? I'm sad to hear Greenville might not be Airbnb friendly. Anyone else heard about this?
  3. That's what I assumed. Instead of fielding 200 individual questions, just get everyone together in the same room.
  4. FYI: "Six-week Main Street resurfacing project scheduled to begin Aug. 24. The City will hold a public meeting to share project details Aug 5, 5-7pm, City Hall, 10th floor. http://ow.ly/zG0v8"
  5. Methodical Coffee for the BOA building. Opening in September. I'm very very excited about this for Greenville! http://methodicalcoffee.com/
  6. Not sure if this is the best place to put this, but there's a new development on this side of town. A Printshop co-op for artists just opened its doors across from Greenville Lofts on Smythe street. My husband is one of the founders and they're running a Kickstarter to raise the last piece of funding they need. GSA story is here: http://www.gsabusiness.com/news/51673-printshop-launches-kickstarter-campaign Kickstarter link is here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1156313250/the-printshop?ref=home_location I think this will be a really nice resource for local artists!

    There was some action at the Claussen Bakery today. Anyone know what's happening there?
  8. What is currently in the old courthouse buildings?
  9. Two new grand openings happening in The Village of West Greenville tonight, with more exciting things coming down the pipeline. Really excited to see the artists and business owners in the area making some huge progress and putting Greenville on the map in the process. Opening tonight Matthew Campbell Studios (https://www.facebook.com/events/372383732878788/permalink/378645435585951/) and Zen House (https://www.facebook.com/ZenHouseAtPendleton?group_id=0)

    I think the original intent was to have a restaurant there, but for whatever reason that space has been empty since construction. From what I understand, Sempra will be in the old Bounce space.

    OOBE moves its headquarters there this week. They'll be taking that floor and the one above it.
  12. Anybody know the story behind Sully's? I haven't been in yet, but judging by their site, everything looks really well planned and executed. I was expecting it to be a chain, but I'm thrilled to see it's just the Greenville location. Whoever is behind this has done a fabulous job. I can't wait to get out there and support them!
  13. This will get some peoples blood boiling: http://m.wyff4.com/news/Proposed-rules-will-keep-food-trucks-out-of-downtown/-/17443906/19185368/-/rk35p3z/-/index.html?utm_campaign=%5BLjava.lang.String;@477fb6cc&utm_medium=%5BLjava.lang.String;@11ba2fc0&utm_source=%5BLjava.lang.String;@5694ef57 I think it's pretty ridiculous. Food trucks require foot traffic by nature of their business model. Adding a 250-foot rule from other restaurants would make it virtually impossible to run a food truck in Greenville. But I think that's the point. My gut reaction is that this 'citizen task force' is the result of downtown restaurant owners using the law to bully what would otherwise be healthy competition. Food trucks are just beginning to take root in Greenville, but most other major cities have thriving food truck communities. Greenville should be embracing this movement — encouraging it for the good of the city — not figuring out ways to stifle it. The bigger picture: The people starting these food trucks are young entrepreneurs who are further establishing Greenville as a food destination — as well as helping revitalize areas of the city (West Greenville specifically) that restauranteurs aren't willing to invest in. If the city approves this 250-foot recommendation, it will essentially be shutting down the entire movement as well as the secondary benefits (revitalization, quality food, new businesses) that come with it.

    New event space in the Old Cigar Warehouse! http://www.oldcigarwarehouse.com/ I've been curious about what was going on with this space and I think an event venue is a great idea!
  15. Personally, I think it's a fantastic improvement to the plain building that's there. It has so much more character and I think it looks appropriate for the setting. Foodwise, we'll see what Table 301 can come up with, but in my opinion, they rarely disappoint. Much more excited about this idea than some of the other 'restaurants' (aka Tilted Kilt) that have an eye on Greenville or the halfway thought out restaurant concepts that get submitted.
