View from our condo

« day before | today | day after »

Our cats, Click and Clack, are enjoying the view from our condo. Yes, we named them after Click and Clack the Tappet Brothers, A.K.A. Tom and Ray Magliozzi. We are big fans of Car Talk on NPR. If you have not heard the show you should give it a try they are hilarious as are our cats. Their web site is: Car Talk

Now back to the view from our condo. We live at Poinsett Corners. Their web site is Poinsett Corners

We have enjoyed the condo and the life style. In addition we, as do our cats, enjoy the view of our private courtyard.

Shoeless Joe Jackson

« day before | today | day after »

Given the World Series is underway we stopped by the Shoeless Joe Jackson Plaza to take a couple of photos. The plaza is at the intersection of South Main Street and Augusta Street in downtown Greenville. It is in Historic West End just outside of a great restaurant called Smoke on the River.

Joe Jackson is a Greenville native and is famous for his baseball accomplishments and infamous for being banned from baseball in the "Black Sox scandal". See the following web pages for more details.

One web page claims Babe Ruth once said, "I copied Jackson's style because I thought he was the greatest hitter I had ever seen ..."

Westin Poinsett Hotel

« day before | today | day after »

The Westin Pointsett Hotel is the downtown Greenville landmark. We enjoy their resteraunt called Spoonbread. However, we enjoy their Lobby Piano Bar the most.

The photo to the right is of the Poinsett statue on Main Street. Joel Poinsett is famous for many things and had an illustrious political career. Click here for details.

However the fun thing is that he introduced the Poinsett plant to the United States.

Fall for Greenville

« day before | today | day after »
We cooked only one meal this weekend. Instead we just stepped out of our Condo and walked one block to Main Street to enjoy food prepared from 41 different restaurants. Our favorite Sunday was Larkin's on the River. Their web site is: Larkin's On The River

The crowds were huge on Saturday night at the Fall for Greenville festival. The scene shown in this photo stretched the full length of main street. The festival web page is Fall For Greenville

Given this festival is a celebration of food in Greenville, we sampled dishes from three restaurants on Saturday. Restaurant O was our favorite. Their website is Restaurant O

On Friday we enjoyed Mexican food, then Japanese, and to end the evening we had outstanding shrimp from Cazpah. Their website address is: Cazbah

I almost forgot to mention; there was music on five stages and a good time was had by all.

Two Chefs After-Work

« day before | today | day after »
One of the great finds we have made is the "Two chefs After-Work" offer. The sign says "Enjoy a bottle of wine and FREE snacks on the Two Chefs patio! Weekdays 5-7pm"

In fact we took advantage of this before we went to see Paul Anka on Tuesday. Wine, salad, and Paul Anka. How could it get better?

Paul Anka

« day before | today | day after »

Paul Anka performed at the Peace Center on Tuesday October 11th. We had a great time as did all of those in the crowd. Paul worked the crowd and even invited photo's during the performance.

The ladies, in the crowd, acted as if they were 18 again. Every one was on the edge of their seat and often on their feet.
