Trollingwood Taproom and Brewery had their big "final" event this past Sunday. I've heard rumors from the owner that they were planning on nixing the brewery part and turning it into a taproom/bar that focuses on local bands/talent. I think this could work well. Other than the State theater now, not many, if any, places downtown are solely focused on local talent. Trollingwood has had small bands from all over the world play there including bands from Europe. I think if they would step up their advertising game, they could really do well.

US 264 E onramp in Greenville to close for one month starting July 8

Presumably to finish improvements related to the SW Bypass. Will be happy when this is complete, and expecting that this means we're nearing the finish line.

Thats a great idea. With Pitt St across the street now as well as others downtown, a local place on Dickinson to have live music would likely do well, especially if its an over 21 crowd where it maybe isnt so college oriented. I think there is a place for ALL of the investors of the past 5 years in downtown Greenville...but its contingent on "creating" demand from the non college crowd and getting the older folks downtown. I feel like the streetscape project will help tremendously as well as if the City would move up whatever slow timeline they have created with the Imperial redevelopment project.

North Carolina Is Experiencing a Tech Jobs Boom, Experts Say

This has implications for Greenville.

First, we're only 75 minutes in traffic from downtown Raleigh. That's closer than most of Silicon Valley, and people commute in from much farther. As Raleigh grows more expensive, we can draw in those outlying workers. (And for as much as we may lament the lack of non-highway connections to Raleigh in that future, most of my SF-based colleagues still drive to work each day).

Second, as Raleigh grows as a tech destination, the cost of extending those high-end services to Greenville (Google Fiber, e.g.) will drop dramatically. Those are the kinds of services tech companies look for when establishing offices. Aside from a residential destination, small companies that may not be able to afford Raleigh-area real estate will look to Wilson-Greenville-Rocky Mount for places to get started.

Third, these jobs are high-skills and high-salary roles. This would be an enormous cash inversion for our region.

Fourth, these workers fall into Richard Florida's "creative class," and look for the communities they live and work in to be walkable, bikeable, compact, entertainment-filled locations. Even if we satisfy (1) and (2) above, we won't achieve the returns we should unless we are successful in drawing more experiential business into the city--and not just in downtown Greenville, but in places like the Medical District and Winterville as well.

I appreciate Trollingwood for being the first brewery in Greenville and helping to kickstart the development on Dickinson. However, I was never a fan of their beer. Everything I had from there just tasted flat to me. Uptown & Pitt Street definitely blew it out of the water. Also, the space is so tiny. They've got a niche that they are filling and a move to just a taproom/bar with music should continue to work well. Still seems odd they didn't try to find a larger place in the area during their time there.

This should give another potential brewery the opportunity to come to the area. I think the city could use a couple more breweries.
