In a rut with date night? We’re here to help. Every week, we’ll pair a notable show – music, art, dance, or theater – with the perfect pre-show dinner at a local restaurant. We’ll even tell you what to order and how long your Uber or Lyft should take between the two. Consider all of the guesswork taken care of. All you have to do is snag tickets and make that reservation.
Where we’re eating: Woodside Bistro, 1112 Woodside Ave.
A month and a half ago, you wouldn’t have had a dinner option of this caliber this close to Studio Unknown. But, just around the corner, newer lunch hot spot Woodside Bistro has begun dinner service, and you won’t beat the quality for the price and location. The chef team of Austyn McGroarty and Ken Frazier develop serious flavor in their dishes, creating a menu of true comfort food for a chilly evening. Bonus: currently the bistro is BYOB, so bring that bottle of wine you’ve been saving for a special occasion.

What we’re seeing: First Friday Pop Up Art Party
The First Friday Pop Up Art Party at Studio Unknown gives you the chance to check out some of the amazing artists working right here in Greenville. Studio Unknown is a space that gives artists working studios where they can come to create daily, and the Pop Up Art Party is a rare chance for those who don’t work in the studio to see what these artists have created, since Studio Unknown doesn’t typically open for the public. Plus, it’s a totally free event, with art by resident artist Kay Larch and visiting artists Dani Goodnow, Paige Bryson, Elegant Gore and more.
