Av and I had a black-tie event to attend in Greenville, and we stayed at the Fairfield Inn again. The Holiday Inn Express is open now, but it was about $20 more expensive and usually HIX aren’t $20 nicer than this particular Fairfield Inn, so that’s where we stayed.
The event was really nice and we had a good time…since supper was part of the event, we didn’t eat at Doe’s like we usually do (although I’ve been wanting to go to Shapley’s for a while too) – but since we had skipped lunch, we dropped by Scott’s Hot Tamales for a little appetizer. Yum!
The next morning we got up and had breakfast at Jim’s Cafe. Jim’s Cafe is one of those time-warp places that still exists, where where old men are gathered at one table talking about crooked politicians, what was in the paper this morning, how the world is going to pot, etc. and continually joshing each other in a really funny way. Av got introduced to all of them because one of our friends from there walked in. It was really a blast.
BTW, they serve some yummy pink lemonade there…mayhaw jelly, too.
