The Gardens of Spartanburg

By Jan Scalisi , produced in cooperation with the HubCity Writers Project. You can drive by it on busy John B. White Sr. Boulevard and never notice it. You can even pull in and park at the entryway, but still have no clear idea of what’s ahead. It’s only as your walk unfolds, step by surprising step, that you begin to realize where you've arrived: in a peaceful garden in the middle of the city. Amazing how Spar

The Fish Camp Experience

By Jeremy L. C. Jones, produced in cooperation with the HubCity Writers Project. The Flounder Fish Camp doesn't look like much. It's nothing fancy inside or out. Most fish camps aren't.

At the time, as we walked out of the shop with a Schwinn Sport and Schw

There’s a green cone just off the edge of the track at the BMW Performance Center, marking where my first of four timed laps will start. I’m behind the wheel of a 135is, the fastest version of a diminutive vehicle affectionately known by German car enthusiasts as the “Baby Beemer.” Mine is the first in a line of five identical models—all in a color BMW calls “Deep Sea Blue Metallic”—set to take on the

Brewing Beer in Downtown’s Grain District

By Jodie Free, HubCity Writers Project I came to Spartanburg on a summer internship from my graduate school in Oxford, Mississippi, and during the three months that I lived there, RJ Rockers beer became a staple of my diet, and the brewery became one of my favorite places to be downtown. Founded in 1997 by head brewer and New Jersey native Mark Johnsen, RJ Rockers is a microbrewer with more than a dozen beers. Loca
