Kids eat free
Kids eat free nights at restaurants used to be a really trendy thing but aren’t as common these days. Enter Sully’s Steamers at 6 E. Washington St., throwin’ it back to 1995, 5-8 p.m. Tuesdays, since two weeks ago with a kids eat free offer for children 12 and younger. Parents: now’s your chance to introduce the next generation to the ultimate munchie food available after last call downtown. Your fledgling offspring don’t need to know what all of those terms mean yet, but it might just be the perfect stop when running taxi service to or from dance, band, soccer, or any other after school activity on a night when cooking dinner for the fam is merely a wishful thought. You can even mask veggies in the cheesiness for a semi-balanced meal.
Growing food fam at Taylors Mill
The name for the new Southern Bleachery/Taylors Mill coffee shop Upstate Business Journal announced in May has been unveiled. Junto Coffee, a new project from barista Alex Medina, is now under construction. Follow their progress on Instagram @junto.coffee. Their neighbor — The Farehouse restaurant we’ve been anticipating since December — is nearing completion, but before it opens, they need servers, bartenders, line cooks, and dishwashers. Apply in person at 250 Mill St., Taylors, or call Jeremy at 864-982-9299.
A decade of delicious
Stella’s Southern Bistro in Simpsonville is celebrating 10 years of business on Sept. 2, and they are throwing a party from 6-9 p.m. — as they should, since most locally owned restaurants don’t survive past the five-year mark. For $25, enjoy three hours of live outdoor music and heavy hors d’oeuvres. Tax, gratuity, and alcohol are additional, but bring a canned good to donate and get your first drink free. Reservations are required. Call 864-757-1212.
Mind your beeswax
The rooftop of Golden Brown & Delicious just got a little sweeter thanks to some new residents up there. An actual hive of honey bees has been installed by Gregory Pest Control on the roof of the Village of West Greenville restaurant, and while they won’t bother the human pedestrians, they’ll do the important pollinating work on the urban garden below. Without honey bees, which pollinate more than 70 percent of our food crops, our selection of food would be vastly and disappointingly different. Save the bees, people.
Keep it going
Five Table 301 restaurants that participated in restaurant week have extended their special prix fixe menus an additional week. So, if you missed the discounted meals at Jianna, Soby’s, The Nose Dive, Passerelle Bistro, or The Lazy Goat, you have until Sunday, Aug. 26 to take advantage. Also from the Table 301 group, the former Soby’s on the Side that was rebranded as Table 301 Kitchen with a new, smaller menu has added back fan favorite Daily Motivators. Those daily specials are: Monday, smoked pork barbecue; Tuesday, grilled hot dogs; Wednesday, grilled cheese; Thursday, chef’s choice flatbread pizzas; and Friday, Philly cheesesteaks.
