A day spent with the Greenville Drive is always a home run — but if you’re looking to make your next game day experience even better, you won’t have to look far.

Conveniently located next to Fluor Field on Main Street is The Bellwether Public House, a local pub serving up unique bites and, take it from us, the perfect atmosphere to wind-up for a baseball game. Psst... it’s a sister restaurant to Urban Wren.

Bites and brews

The Bellwether is open for lunch and dinner Tuesday-Saturday, and serves a can’t-miss brunch on Sundays.

Get into the spirit of the game with fan-favorite eats, like the Crispy CauliFLUOR (wink, wink), Left Field Nachos, and The Swingin’ Pretzel.

Thirsty? Raise a pint of Rallyville — the official beer of the Greenville Drive — try a craft cocktail, or savor your favorite glass of wine.

Bonus: Happy hour happens every day from 4-6 p.m., featuring:
  • $2 off all draft beer, cocktails, and wine
  • Half-price apps and snacks
Fried cauliflower and fried pickles on a table.

Pro tip: Snacks and apps are half-off every day from 4-6 p.m.

This hot spot is great for groups and is family-friendly, with games for people of all ages on the patio, like Cornhole, giant Jenga, and Connect Four.

Father’s Day fun

The Bellwether is making Father’s Day extra special by extending its Sunday hours (open ‘til 8 p.m.) and offering a fantastic Steak Dinner dad will love.

In for a penny, in for a pound penny. A local 1% sales tax — that would fund road improvements throughout the county — could appear on your ballot in November.

According to the approved wording of the question from the Capital Projects Sales Tax Commission, the tax will be in place for “not more than 8 years” and will be used for the following projects:
  • $473,919,000 for road improvement, repaving, and reconstruction projects
  • $216,100,000 for intersection improvement projects
  • $313,200,000 for roadway safety + congestion relief projects
  • $43,613,000 for bridge and road-related drainage projects
Let’s play a game. Each number below signifies how many projects will be completed using the amounts above. We want you to match them up.
  • 37 improvements
  • 51 improvements
  • 1,445 improvements
  • 31 improvements

From the editor
I told you I’d keep you posted if I found anything during Game of Shrooms on Saturday, and I always try and keep my promises. I found these fungis around Greenville, and I was so excited. The crochet mushroom is from Flowered Leo and the paintings are from Beth Stathis. I’m already looking forward to next year.
