God's Plan

Seems to be a lot of proselytizing on Main Street lately.  From street preachers screaming hellfire and damnation to wide-eyed young people wanting a "moment of my time." Makes for good street theatre I suppose. Recently I was checking my e-mail in front of Fall's Park when a white van came screeching up beside me. Next thing I knew I was surrounded by several twenty-somethings holding religious tracts who were all piling into the van like they'd just pulled a bank job.

For some reason, I doubt the claim on the front of this Hummer.

Disk (Frisbee) Golf Courses

Recently, one of my sons and I were trying to remember where all the good disk golf course are around here. These are the only ones we could remember.

Timmons Park - This a good one although it was recently re-routed and is a bit confusing toward the end.

Here are a couple more I found on-line that I'm not familiar with.

I'd love for people to chime in and offer others they know of, both in Greenville County and in the surrounding counties.

Update: Hat tip to Otis for the following resource. Upstate Disc Golf Courses

Mojitos Bar and Lounge

My wife and I had a very pleasant lunch at this West End restaurant recently.  The place is owned by a Cuban entrepreneur who moved from Miami to open a business in Greenville.  I'm no expert on Cuban food, but I can personally vouch for their Cuban sandwich. 

A little more detail is given here and here.

Distance from downtown Greenville: 0 miles.
