jpirate, I follow the brewery on FB and they're still working on the site. Looks like some sort of tanks were delivered about 2 weeks ago. My guess is that they'll be open sometime this spring or early summer. I doubt they will have any trouble keeping people in the building. The Dickinson Avenue Public house (Owned by Christi's Euro Pub) will be opening up right beside the brewery in the same time frame.

Living in Raleigh, I always enjoy going to one of the many breweries in the area. I can't wait to try this one on my trips back to Greenville.

The point about "destination spot" is spot on...the Brewery and Public House is one destination.

The Go-Science will be another one.

As well as the Theater whenever they can get that project going.

And the ECU Registrar's office.

That is the key to a successful downtown, create reasons for people to come downtown.

That long talked about ECU Performing Arts Centre would be perfect. I am sure a Theater could be built that doubles as a convention space.

Progress is staring to take shape. I happened to see the end of a council meeting the other day on tv & head Mayor Thomas say that he has been contacted by the city of Bristol in Connecticut inquiring about how Greenville is spurring growth in their uptown area. Good to see others are taking note.

Anyone know when the work on the mini-brewery place on Dickinson will take place? When I drive uptown it's slowly starting to feel like a city and not a town anymore. Hope it keeps on pushing...has lots of potential as a destination spot in town & we need one for sure.

At one time there was talk of making a walk through to 5th street between the back of the Creamery building and the old Side Bar/Hideaway building. They would have to take down a portion of that wall, but I thought it was a great idea. Is that still happening? Pictures do not indicate as such.

...Chico's?

Interesting.

While it's great that this gives another opportunity for people to learn about the planets and stars , there is already a planetarium 10 minutes away in Kinston. I think this "A time for science" organization should be partnering up with the GO Science center to bring the planetarium there.

If Chancellor Jenkins had his way, we would've had a Planetarium 40 years ago. Thanks UNC!

Brody School Of Medicine at risk of closing.

I don't know what to say other than I hope someone does something.

East Carolina University administrators spent much of last year lobbying the State Legislature to reverse funding changes that have left the Brody School of Medicine at risk. The General Assembly’s 2015 long session was barely seated before ECU Chancellor Steve Ballard again sounded the at-risk alarm last week.

“The risks to Brody have never been greater than they are today because of a thousand decisions that have been made over the years that have a cumulative effect,” Ballard told members of the Greenville-Pitt County Chamber of Commerce.

Sounding the alarm before a large gathering of area business leaders makes good sense. But are those leaders making sense of what is actually at stake for the medical school? Do they have the sense that the medical school actually is in real danger of closing?
