One of the greatest attributes of this beautiful city we call home is that it allows small, boutique, independent places like us branch out and do really great, cool community events to bring folks together. At the end of the day, isn't that what it's all about? Truck INN Tuesdays brought people from all over the place to 1 Logan St. to meet up, have a taco and a beverage, support local Makers, Farmers, and Popsicle Stands, and listen to live music.
We think that's what summer is about: hanging out, block-party style with your buddies after the 5pm bell rings. No fuss, no muss, just a great time. Truck INN Tuesdays hosted residents of our backdoor neighbors, 400 Rhett Apartments, downtown dwellers, newcomers to the city from Louisville, KY, recent retirees living in Travelers Rest, commuters from Easley, Spartanburg, and Greer, the nice folks from Pickwick Pharmacy, the ever elusive behind-the-scenes guys from Albino Skunk Festival, local bike shop employees, a magnitude of doodle dogs, and yes, even Pickle the Pig. One of our favorite groups that came week INN and week out was the gaggle of parents and kids on their bikes, taking the trip over on the Swamp Rabbit Trail.
We want to thank all of our Food Trucks: Automatic Taco, Highway 301, JB Tingles, and Ellada Kouzina. Special thanks to the Community Tap. Our live musicians Jay Deihl, DJ King Harold Pendleton, Launch, Passing Scene, John Stanislawski, Brooks Dixon, Jake Erwin, My Girl My Whiskey and Me, and especially West End String Band and Stringed Keys for playing twice. And all of our Makers who came week INN and week out, braving the heat and potential for rain almost every week: King of Pops, Reedy River Farms, Greenville Goods, Jocie Pots, Rivertown Nola, Ella Marie Handmade Clothing, Cooks Flips, LeeAnalyze, From SC with Love, Kuka Juice, Pallet & Crate, Heather VonCamp, Modern Forestry Soy Candles, Bone and Ink, Happy Arsenal Jewelry, Malia's Mark, Kathleen King, Velo Valets, Pinebox Daddy, and The Bike Shed at Swamp Rabbit Inn.
