Why are so many high-end restaurants coming to Greenville, SC? Where once the city struggled to sustain high-end restaurants, now established restaurant brands are flocking to the downtown. Companies and restaurateurs cite the city’s economic virility and growth, the vibrant job market that is drawing young professionals and a chance to get in on the front end of the city’s foodie boom.
Dear Mr. Dad: I'm almost embarrassed to say this, but I'm sick and tired of hearing parents tell their kids that they're "awesome," or "amazing" or "incredible," or any of the other overused words people use these days.

Q: My biological mother died when I was 5-years-old and two years later my father married a wonderful woman who raised me and has always made me feel loved. I regard her as my mom, even though I will never forget my biological mother, but each year when Mother's Day rolls around, my aunt (my mom's sister) wants me to visit the cemetery where my mother is buried and completely disregard Judy. On Mother's Day, of all days, I want to acknowledge Judy for what she has done for me, but it causes a problem every year. What's good ex-etiquette?
