6:00 – 9:00 p.m.
Children’s Museum of the Upstate
(300 College Street, Greenville, SC)

On April 9 from 6-9 p.m., the Southern Foodways Alliance pitched its tent at the Children’s Museum of the Upstate. On the menu: SFA-produced South Carolina foodways films. Smart words. Good local drinks. Honest local foods. Cool music. Good company.

By way of Joe York-directed films and George Singleton-crafted words, we celebrated South Carolina food titans like Emile DeFelice, and Glenn Roberts.

Joe and Heidi Trull of Grits and Groceries, Joe Clark of American Grocery, Shaun Garcia of Soby’s, Anthony Gray of High Cotton, John and Amy Malik of the late great 33 Liberty, and Jordan Johnson of OJ’s Diner were our cooks for the evening. Guests tasted potlikker, and other delights, and sipped refreshment from local favorite Thomas Creek Brewing.
