It’s going to be 75 degrees this Saturday in Greenville. Let me write that again: 75 degrees. If that’s not enough to get you racing up 26, maybe the fact that you can still snag some tickets to Euphoria Greenville (Sept. 21-24) will.
The upstate food festival is similar to Charleston’s Wine + Food festival albeit with a much more laid back feel and less crowds.
For a Culinary Village-esque event, grab a ticket to Feast by the Field. The outdoor event takes place in and around Fluor Field and includes chef stations, beer samples, liquor tastings, and live music. Tickets are $75, a deal compared to W+F’s $125.
For $85 you can spend Saturday night getting toasted at the Big Easy Bash. This event actually takes place in Travelers Rest where 10 chefs from NOLA and Greenville will serve up a Nawlin’s style party. According to the Greenville Journal, chef Tariq Hanna is one to watch at the event. Hanna will be serving “a sweet buttery sablé tart with bananas Foster caramel, pecan bread pudding, and whipped meunière ganache.”
And finally, if all you’re interested in is a solid hangover remedy, Sunday’s Fired Up! Brunch is the ticket. There eight pitmasters will be serving up a barbecue brunch with the plenty of Bloody Marys and music from Crooked Pine. Brunch begins at 11 a.m.
