As a millennial, it is easy to get caught up in a spending trap. FOMO is a real thing – what will happen if we miss out on an epic event because we can’t afford it? For the past couple of months, we dug deep and found ways to cut back spending in different areas of our lives. Because, let’s be real, times can be tough, and sometimes it isn’t feasible to do everything that you want. Money is tighter in some months than others, and you have to come up with creative ways to save. We went ahead and did the hard work for you, so that you could easily slip into these seven habits that will help save you some cash for the upcoming month.
Things become local institutions for a reason. It could be because the food is good. It could be because the food is cheap. It could even be because the restaurant is so unique and eclectic that going there is an experience. All three of these things ring true for Tanner’s Big Orange on Pleasantburg Drive in Greenville. Tanner’s is celebrating its 75th year serving Greenville, and when you visit, it is pretty obvious why.
Craft beer is taking over the Upstate… there’s no denying it. But sometimes it’s difficult to know what to order. “What flavors are in this?” “HOW much alcohol is that?!” “Isn’t all craft beer bitter?” We’ve decided to take this to the experts. Stephanie King, our Social Media Director (and craft beer enthusiast), is visiting local brewers to learn about their beer, and who exactly will enjoy it! Hint…. just about everyone. In this episode of Upstate on Draft, Stephanie chats with Tom Davis, Brew Master, and Bill Davis, Taste Master, of Thomas Creek Brewery about their seasonal Scottish Ale, Gallabrae. Check out the video below to learn all about it!
It is true, the Upstate is a wonderful place full of so many great things to do and experience. That being said, sometimes you just want to go somewhere new, somewhere different. We don’t blame you. We like to travel, too. Luckily, the Upstate is in a prime location to offer some spectacular day trips. Who doesn’t love a day trip? It has all of the excitement of a legit vacation, but at the end of the day you can come home and climb into your own comfy bed. Here are Five Day Trips worth the gas mileage.
What can be said about ITK’s Creative Director, Grayson? He definitely is a unique fella. In the office, we may all give him a hard time, but that is because we care for him like a brother. We care for him like the little brother who always begs to go out with you and your friends, but then ends up embarrassing you by reminding you about that time you dressed up as Yoda to play Star Wars with him. Despite all of this, Grayson does like some pretty cool stuff. That is why we wanted to see what he was currently obsessed with, to get his Tribe Tested.
Sometimes unexpected bands play at unexpected venues. This is the case with Paleface playing at The Velo Fellow. Sometimes an incongruous act/venue pairing can make a show even more memorable. This is one show you don’t want to miss. In fact, this Music Monday is filled with shows you’ll want to add to your calendar for the week ahead.
Located across from Aloft Hotel in Downtown Greenville, Honey Tupelo Café serves scratch-made southern comfort food elevated to new levels. Upon walking in, you’ll find a friendly host waiting to seat you and your party. Artwork evoking the local area is displayed on the walls as you make your way to the dining area.
Friday May 25th and Saturday May 26th, Greenville will be wearing a little more tartan (remember this word) than they normally will be. Why, you may be asking? That is because the Greenville Scottish Games will once again be taking the streets of Greenville and the fields of Furman University. Let’s just say you will not want to miss out. The Great Scot! Parade is Friday, May 25th at 6 PM and marches its way down Main Street in downtown Greenville. The Greenville Scottish Games proper are all day Saturday, May 26th at Furman University.
