Social Event - Northgate Soda Shop
July 4th and 18th - Our first and third Fridays at Northgate Soda Shop feature Trivia (3rd Friday) and Karaoke (both nights) for those who dare to flaunt their abilities (or possibly the lack thereof ! ). --But no matter which category you happen to fall into, its all in good fun, so come out and join us if you can. (For those who haven't been here before, Northgate Soda Shop also sells beer, wine, and spirits in addition to soda, but its a cash only establishment so be sure you're packing some genuine U.S. samoleans when you walk in the door.) Contact Stan McKinney 864.901.0404 if you need directions or check out the web-link to the left for more info on the Soda Shop.
Southern Culture Kitchen and Bar
July 10th - Our first Thursday of the month has been temporarily shifted to the second Thursday due to the July 4th Holiday. We will be at Southern Culture Kitchen and Bar, located at 2537 N. Plesantburg Dr. in Greenville. Most folks show up around 5:30 PM, so come join us for some fine viddles and a libation or two on the front porch if you can. Menu info can be found by clicking on the link to the left. Our Social Coordinator Stan is the man with the plan, so contact him if you need more info. He can be reached at 864.901.0404.
Karaoke Night - Phoenix Inn
July 17th - Come join us at the Phoenix Inn, 246 N. Pleasantburg Dr. on the hill just above the Krispy Kreme Donut Shop. The karaoke starts at 8:00 PM, so you can time your arrival (or departure) to coincide with the start of the singing, depending on whether you intend to partake in the karaoke or escape before it begins in order to avoid the vocal stylings of the inebriated Elvis impersonators. Contact our social coordinator, Stan McKinney, at 864.901.0404 for more details.
