The weather is here and Greenville is BEAUTIFUL!! SO much to get ta-done this month!
The National attention for #yeahTHAT Greenville just keeps on coming! “Travels With Darley” visited South Carolina this fall and stayed at the Swamp Rabbit Inn and biked the Swamp Rabbit Trail. The “Southern States Road Trip” episode, which features Greenville, Travelers Rest, Anderson, and Belton, has been airing on PBS, ETV and is now available online!
Now on to the activities!
A little rock history anyone? April 12th at 7 pm: Upcountry History Museum at Furman University presents Backstage Pass with Chuck Leavell. Chuck will share his music and stories from a career spent on tour with legends like the Rolling Stones and the Allman Brothers. Tickets still available.
How about something for your little bunnies? Tuesday April 12th and Thursday April 14th - “Goodnight Moon and the Runaway Bunny”. How could I not take all (all, all, ALL) of my nieces and nephews to this magical puppetry production?! By Mermaid Theater of Nova Scotia, performing at the Gunter Theater.
Dog lovers cannot be left out! We rabbits must remember to be inclusive! Thursday April 14th at 6 pm, Yappy Hour at The Humane Society is the mixer for dog lovers with themed treats for our four legged friends and the bipeds who love them. For $10, you and your friends can unwind with cold brews and live music from local artists. Meanwhile, your dog can run off leash in our canine courtyard and take a dip in our “doggie pools”.
Also, for the canine inclined, April 21 at the Old Cigar Warehouse, The Pawmetto Derby! Derby-goers enjoy live music, derby-themed fare, bottomless cocktails and top shelf bourbon! It all leads up to the main event of the evening – the “Run for the Noses” race where adorable (and adoptable!) puppies compete to win the coveted “Run for the Noses” Champion trophy!
