Gullah shrimp and grits from Soby'sOnce a year, in downtown Greenville, South Carolina, we celebrate the coming Fall and our beloved city. It is called Fall for Greenville and we celebrate with great food, great music and…uhhh…ummm…OK, beer. The event features a lot of music from the area, food from over 40 local restaurants, a beer garden with local, regional and national micro-brews, a children’s area with rides and much, much more.

I realized that some of you may have never even heard of Greenville, South Carolina. If you have been here recently you know that it is a beautiful area between Charlotte, NC and Atlanta, GA. Minutes from the mountains and a few hours from the beach. There is a lot going on here and Fall for Greenville is one of my favorite things.

As a foodie, I can’t miss this event. I can sample over 40 restaurants, some old favorites (Soby’s, Larkin’s on the River) and some new (Bavarian Pretzel Factory, Grille 33 @ The Channel). The beer garden has grown over the years and added many very tasty beers.

So, you combine great weather, great food, great beer and music, it can’t get better, right? WRONG! One more thing…it all benefits local charities. That is correct, you get to eat great food, drink beer, people watch and listen to music and all for good causes. It doesn’t get better than that for me. Below are some photos taken at this year’s event, click to enlarge.
