    So we checked out The Kennedy last night, what a treat: We came late Monday at about 9:20pm, despite the fact that they close at 10, we were welcomed. The restaurant is intimate, designed to feel like a 1930’s/40’s Art Deco space with 50’s elements. A great design, fabulous execution and dimmed lighting give The Kennedy a upscale vibe. We were seated by a very pleasant lady. Here’s a small highlight for you... she accidentally dropped one of the menus... she apologized and went to get a new one, that’s right, she didn’t put a menu that was just on the floor onto the table. I was thoroughly impressed. The service was awesome, our server was so well versed on every detail of the menu. He explained every dish in great detail and even the signature cocktail menu. Rock star! Shook my hand when he brought the check! Right on! The food, divine. Unique small plates with some of the most sophisticated flavors. It’s hard to say what we liked the most, it was all absolutely delish and locally sourced. I applaud the Cribb brothers with a huge win for Spartanburg’s growing food scene, they absolutely nailed it! Cheers!

    Smith's Drug Store Redevelopment

    my 2 cents. I LOVE the fact that this is proposed, I like the preliminary design and like the green space/court yard. I agree that the drive through parking is a bit much and I'd much rather see that space filled with building or common outdoor space, but I do understand the desire for having their own parking. I will say this, this plan, flawed or not is a heck of a lot better than a parking lot and that building that Smith's is in now.

    Rumor has it that Golden Chick (a fast food chicken joint) is building a location near the East Side Lowes, right next to the soon to be IHOP. Can anyone confirm? They are certainly building something there, they've torn up the parking lot and have dropped in a construction trailer.

    It's absolutely awesome to see these historical renovations taking place!!! There is so little left so it's heartwarming to see preservation and rehabilitation! I'm curious to see what happens to the old Montgomery Ward and Kress buildings, hopefully someone gets their hands on those two as well and brings them back to glory!

    I took a bunch of pics when this was still abandoned, here are a few: Love that it's being redeveloped, but it did have some cool graffiti on it.

    Aug Smith on Main (Bishop Furniture building renovation)

    Amazing what a little vision and a desire to preserve and not destroy can accomplish. What was a true eyesore has become a beautiful building!

    Checked out Level 10 last night. It's an awesome place, everything from the decor, to the service, to the food. I highly recommend it!

    http://www.goupstate.com/news/20180212/bar-1884-opens-its-doors-to-customers-monday-night Bar 1884 is open for business! Can't wait to check it out and I'm glad that they have a different menu than Miakos. As great as Miakos is, it's smart to make this another and different food venue.

    Anyone know what's going on E.Main across from Heywood? Saw a development sign and some site work going on (this is where they tore down that house several months ago that burned).
