The Generous Garden Project works to combat hunger in local communities by growing a steady supply of fresh produce, which it donates to local ministries and food banks. Volunteers plant and harvest vegetables in a 4.5-acre garden in Greenville, and share their skills by teaching others how to grow their own fruit and vegetables. Local farmers also call upon The Generous Garden Project’s volunteers to glean crops that would otherwise be left to rot in the fields or be plowed after a harvest.
Live-fire training takes place at I Am Not A Victim's outdoor range. Depending on the class, instructors might set up targets on a concrete lot or grassy areas near the woods.
While many customers bring their own firearms, I Am Not A Victim also offers a rental package with a gun, holster, and ammunition.
Drawing upon 4 years as a US Army Ranger and more than 15 years in law enforcement, Mixon Eldridge ensures that students at I Am Not A Victim leave with an in-depth understanding of gun safety and responsibility. Mixon leads courses that cover subjects such as gun laws, firearm safety, and shooting fundamentals. Mixon’s basic and advance trainings take closer looks at drawing and holstering, basic marksmanship, and firing at targets.
Rhythm & Brews serves a hearty ensemble of music-themed grill items to complement a full schedule of live music, trivia, and karaoke. Portraits of rock legends Jimi Hendrix and Johnny Cash look on from exposed brick thrones to watch mouths chow down on Blue Suede cheeseburgers, fortified with crumbled blue cheese and bacon ($8). The Desperado wrap, a bacon, tomato, and cheddar-jack cheese payload encased in a fiery jalapeño-cheddar tortilla, rattles palates from tongue tips to stomach stems ($7). If you'd like to keep your meal as light at a globetrotting eccentric's hot air balloon, try the If the House Is Rockin salad, a vegetable quartet that plays sweet music to tantalize taste buds ($4.75).
The Cazbah serves up traditional American and Asian-inspired small plates along with a carefully curated list of wines. Housed in a former feed-and-seed store, it features a chic industrial design with tin ceilings, exposed brick walls, and a rooftop bar that allows guests to enjoy dinner with a view. The Cazbah furnishes those dinners with a menu of between 30 and 35 rotating tapas, including grilled seafood, veggie dips, and comfort-food staples. The wine list is equally varied, making it easy to find pairings for all types of cuisine.
When discussing CT's Grillin & Chillin's atmosphere with reporters from Metromix, founder Mike Fletcher explained, "I didn't call it a sports bar on purpose." Mike wanted his eatery to be something more than just a sports bar— a place where his son could perform music, where his daughter could work during summer break, and where family and friends could gather over classic American dishes. So while the 12 televisions are often aglow with the latest sports games, on other nights, the bar hosts live music, karaoke, and trivia nights. Servers hoist plates of hearty sandwiches and spicy wings from the kitchen, while bartenders dole out mixed drinks and pour glasses from their selection of more than 25 draft brews.
Neon beer signs cast a nostalgic glow across the dark-red walls of the cavernous dining rooms, illuminating the large booths and wooden tables. A spacious area in the front of the venue is equipped with microphones and speakers, creating an ideal stage for open-mic nights or public declarations that calculus is boring, no matter what popular opinion says.
