Greenville Breakfast Tour
Nov 21 @ 7:30 am – 9:00 am
In front of Joel's Java (at the Westin Poinsett Hotel)

Greenville’s culinary scene has gained national attention and is often cited for its great array of lunch and dinner destinations. In recent years opportunities to find equally unique and quality breakfast cafes has been added to the foundation of destinations that have served up consistent traditional selections for many years. On this tour they want to highlight some of the not-to-miss delicious selections for a truly memorable breakfast tasting experience. This driving tour will begin on Greenville’s Main Street and will tour you through some of our city’s “hot spots” as well as some of the city’s most beautiful neighborhoods on the way to the restaurants.

Restaurants you will visit:

The Spoonbread Restaurant (Westin Poinsett hotel)
Biscuit Head
Le Petit Croissant

The Food & Drink
The first destination, The Spoonbread Restaurant, has been part of the fabric of downtown Greenville since 1925 when the Poinsett Hotel opened as the grandest hotel in town. After a $25 million renovation, the hotel re-opened in 2000 as the Westin and the Spoonbread resumed delighting its guests with the best daily breakfast buffet in downtown as well as a la carte menu items. On this tour you’ll feel charmed and special in this beautiful environment sampling an array of fresh items from its hot and cold breakfast selections. You’ll also get good insights to the history and significance of this special hotel. 
                     
Next you’ll make your way to a trendy spot in the South Ridge complex on one of Greenville’s gateway corridors. Normally you’ll see people lined up outside the doors waiting to get a taste of their breakfast fare at all times of day. You’ll beat the crowds and get a personalized experience from chefs who may serve you one of their “crowd favorites” or may treat you to something off-menu for a special one-of-a-kind indulgence. To take your taste buds further, you’re encouraged to try selections from their home-made jam and flavored-butter bar.

Nov 21 @ 9:30 am – 4:30 pm
Carl Sandburg Home

Sandburg Clothing on Exhibit

“Dressing for the Occasion” offers visitors a window into the style, culture, and feel of mid-century America. The family’s clothing and accessories weave together the roles of Carl Sandburg as a prominent writer, celebrity, father, and husband. This temporary exhibit offers an exciting opportunity for the public to view objects that are normally in storage or in the possession of Sandburg family members. Tours of the Sandburg Home are offered daily from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm. Tickets are available first come, first served, each day from the visitor information area in the ground level of the Sandburg Home.

Visitors will see the characteristic scarves Carl Sandburg wore as he played his guitar and sang folk songs to entertain his family and guests, the dress Lilian Sandburg wore to meet President Lyndon B. Johnson, and many other mid-century pieces worn by the Sandburgs and their daughters. Historic photographs, paired with the clothing, will provide context.
