The chefs at Yesteryears populate their menu with sautéed shrimp, grilled burgers, and crisp salads. Diners perform taste bud calisthenics with trips to the top of mountainous nachos, with pan-seared jalapeño-lime chicken breast covered in roasted bean salsa and cheese sauce. The blue Angus burger teems with fried onion rings and applewood-smoked bacon. Patrons clasp fingers around roasted turkey sandwiches on berry wheat bread and pierce forks though shrimp sautéed in Jack Daniels whiskey in a garlic cream tarragon reduction sauce. A glass of house cabernet sauvignon or merlot acts as a complement to an entree or a detriment to a rival's new white shirt.

A licensed member of the National Sporting Clays Association, Hermitage Farm Shooting Sports challenges clay marksmen to a course that draws them through a dense forest of wild azaleas, colorful dogwood trees, and leafy hickory trees. Shooters ride a golf cart or walk to make their way across the 1,500-acre parcel, stopping at a number of natural stands to test shooting accuracy on manual and automatic traps situated along a winding ridge. Several traps placed around pond rims simulate the flight of live game, offering shooters a way to warm up for hunting season or play pranks on unpopular pond-dwelling superheroes.
There are people who love cooking from scratch and people who shudder at the thought of assembling a turkey club sandwich. Rosewood Market and Deli caters to both. Aisles of grocery items help list-makers check off boxes for gluten-free food, pasture-raised meats and eggs, and local raw milks. The produce section harvests organic choices from local farms, and the cheese case displays sticks and slices from around the region and the globe. In the deli, soups, salads, desserts, baked goods, and other items satisfy tastes from vegan to carnivore. Quick meals in the grab-n-go case include sandwiches and salads that can be topped with homemade dressings and spreads, such as tamari gravy dill vinaigrette and a spicy chipotle spread.
Rosewood Market and Deli has matured from its beginnings as the Basil Pot restaurant in 1973. It’s grown while adhering to the idea that “people can take an active, hands-on approach to their own wellness through delicious food,” as it proclaims on its website. A commitment to sustainability permeates the market, from its cardboard-recycling dumpster and reusable produce boxes to its compostable utensils and ability to accept biodegradable credit cards.
“It’s like having Mr. Rogers teach your child to swim,” said one parent who left it up to The Swim Lessons Company’s Jim Reiser to show her child the secrets of not sinking. A third-generation swim teacher and coach, Jim approaches his pupils from a gentle, comforting angle that’s especially calibrated to meet the needs of infants, preschoolers, and adults disguised as Toys 'R' Us kids, employing fun activities and drills to impart skills. His friendship with water began in elementary school, and it was a friendship destined to last. To pay for college, Jim leased the university pool and used it to train young swimmers; he went on to teach aquatic courses at the University of South Carolina and lead multiple swimmers to state championships. "The Swim Professor"—a nickname Jim earned after founding Swim Lessons University, an online learning resource loaded with educational videos—now spends his days sharing the magic of swimming with people of every age, imparting the tips and tricks they'll need to survive in a pool, from holding their breath to performing a proper backstroke and catching Marco Polo.
