  1. And now a third Mexican (or Tex-Mex) restaurant within a stone's throw of each other. https://www.goupstate.com/news/20200204/bronco-mexican-restaurant-expanding-to-downtown-spartanburg
  2. Hate to see it go, but Cakehead Bakeshop is closing at the end of the month: https://www.goupstate.com/news/20190812/cakehead-bakeshop-closing-at-end-of-month
  3. I graduated from an all-male college in the early 90's. I went there not because of its single-gender status (it had been that way since its founding in the late 1800s), but because it was one of the top-rated schools in its specialty (it is an engineering and science school - think Institute of Technology). During my senior year, the board of trustees set forth a bold plan to elevate the status of the school from a regionally-known and respected institution to one with a more national reach, albeit while still keeping it relatively small (it has grown from 1700 undergrads to around 2200 to
  4. A bit of a beer snob here - I visited Holliday on Saturday and tried 5 of their offerings. I felt three were really solid brews, and the other two drinkable but unremarkable. The space is cool, and as stated, the photography on the walls was excellent!
  5. And here's the article detailing the proposed judicial center. Personally, I like the federal-style building. https://www.goupstate.com/news/20181218/new-judicial-center-drawing-unveiled
  6. This seems like a big deal locally - I know my better half will (finally) become part of the SHRS from MB. https://www.goupstate.com/news/20181011/spartanburg-regional-to-acquire-mary-black-health-system
  7. Todd may have had a fighting chance in the election if he didn't come off as arrogant and elitist. That, and the 11th-hour mailer that questioned Junie's fitness for office because of his age didn't help matters, whether or not Todd's campaign had anything to do with that mailer - I was on the fence and that one mailer moved my vote into Junie's column. Just my $0.02, I think Todd would have done a fine job, but perception didn't help him when compared with Junie's reputation as a man of the people at the level of the man on the street.
  8. And it's already $10 million over the initial proposed budget. When will people realize the free-spending District 7 loves your tax money and plans to keep wasting it?!? http://www.goupstate.com/news/20180730/spartanburg-high-school-construction-on-schedule
  9. As somebody who travels the stretch between Spartanburg and Blacksburg almost every day, this is a nightmare. They could not have done a worse job of lane-shifting if they tried. Good thing I know most of the alternative routes to where I need to go - this project, while wayyyy overdue, is a disaster.
  10. I don't mind Starbucks, but I very much prefer The Coffee Bar. What other reason for locating literally a block away than to try to take over the downtown market?
  11. Call me a cynic, but I doubt it's less expensive. We're talking about D7 here. They are building a $36 million elementary school which is about the same size as the one D2 just built for $23 million.
  12. And another downtown food option opens... http://www.goupstate.com/article/20160804/ARTICLES/160809862/0/FRONTPAGE
  13. I've not been able to get a straight answer on this question (among many non-answered or non-addressed questions, but that's another tale for another time): Do the ball fields on the site plan mean the end of SHS using Duncan Park Stadium? I hope not. That would be a sore point for a lot of folks. It was never mentioned that I've been able to find.
  14. There will be a town-hall style meeting on Monday, March 7 at the downtown SCC campus from 6:30 to 8:00 pm. I'm amazed they are actually holding it at a time that people can actually make it as opposed to starting it at 5 pm to keep attendance low! http://www.goupstate.com/article/20160301/ARTICLES/160309991/1083/ARTICLES?Title=Herald-Journal-to-host-town-hall-on-Spartanburg-District-7-referendum
