Hey Greenville, Stephanie + Danielle here. Between the two of us, we get the privilege of sharing the news with 198,060 readers daily — both through our newsletter + on social media.

We thought we should formally introduce ourselves. Consider this us going in for a fist bump, then switching to a handshake, then settling on a hug.

👻 Meet Stephanie

Q. Describe Greenville’s personality in three words.
A. Sheesh, only three? Okay I would say, “dynamic, friendly, and tasty.”

Q. If Greenville had one-specific dish, what would it be?
A. It would be a beautiful fusion of Soby’s shrimp and grits in a Stecca bread bowl (which doesn’t yet exist...just throwing that out there) from the Swamp Rabbit Cafe and Grocery.

Q. If you wrote a book about Greenville, what would you call it?
A. I’ve actually thought about this before. I would call it something like: “Greenville: The Best Small Big City in America,” or, “Greenville: Small-Town Feel with Big-City Vibes.”

Q. What were the last three things you did downtown?
A. Grabbed drinks at The Cocktail Company and Coupe’s Corner, ate dinner at Papi’s Tacos, and took my family to see the gingerbread exhibit.

Q. Other than yourself, who would you consider to be the local expert about Greenville?
A. A three-parter:

  • Ava Braatz’s Instagram bio is “Greenville’s hype girl” and I think it perfectly describes her.
  • GVLgroupies aka Canon Mikes is a full-time teacher who is very plugged in to Greenville’s food scene and is a rising star.
  • Ryan Johnston, our CEO at 6AM City, is always hitting me with Greenville facts I didn’t know.

Q. Fill in the blank: The coolest person I’ve met in Greenville is ___________.
A. I truly cannot pick just one:

  • Khailing Neoh of Sum Bar is so cool.
  • Interviewing Carl Sobocinski is a highlight for me. He’s done so much for our city.
  • On the celebrity-front, I met Tyler Florence when he was in town for euphoria 2022. He confirmed he uses Duke’s Mayo, so we know he’s still a Greenvillian.
