The city’s first Dine on Trade event will include valet parking, extended hours and menu specials for patrons from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., as well as live tunes from singer-songwriter Jacob Johnson, according to a news release.
Restaurants joining in for the event include Abbott’s Frozen Custard, Barista Alley, Blue Ridge Brewing, Café Mazzitelli, Cartwright Food Hall, Crate Restaurant and Wine Bar, Lost Portales, Plate 108, Sonny’s Grill, Stomping Grounds, The Bleu Porch in partnership with La Bouteille and The Mason Jar.
Cartwright Food Hall is not open in its entirety, but some vendors will participate in the event, the release said. Greer Heritage Museum will also host ghost tours during the event on Oct. 16, 23 and 30.
“You’ll want to make plans right now for this exciting event” Mayor Rick Danner said in the release. “I can’t think of a better way to spend a Friday night in October than ‘Dine on Trade.’ Make reservations at one of the participating restaurants to dine on the newly completed Trade Street under the lights and stars. Valet parking, late shopping hours and live music will round out your evening of food and fun.”
