Heading back downtown, Lemongrass Thai is a fantastic place for dinner. Yet again,

For some good ol`, casual Italian, pop over toTrio Brick Oven Cafe. The pizzas, salads,
pastas and sandwiches are all tasty and easily customizable per your diet. I veganized

dessert as they had a killer sorbet to finish off my meal. Multo Bene!
Greenville was very pretty, very relaxing and very tasty. I would be more then happy to
come back soon and chow some more ; )
