Street Pizza finds a home, Fireforge celebrates, Greenville Zoo claims a brew: Weekly Dish

A new permanent home has been found for Adrian Dinica’s Street Pizza.

When the Greenville Journal last caught up with Dinica, he was set to move his mobile pizza concept into Cartwright Food Hall in Greer. His newest move is a pivot a little closer to home.

Street Pizza will has moved into Vaughn’s Food Hall in downtown Simpsonville in the former Humble Pie space. Talks began a few months ago for the shop owner and have come to fruition.

“We have our grand opening today,” Dinica said on May 31.

Dinica’s pizza is characterized by its similarities to New York-style pizza, and by its dessert pizzas. Street Pizza is situated in Vaughn’s Food Hall at 109 W. Trade St. in Simpsonville.

Downtown Greenville’s Fireforge Crafted Beer is celebrating its sixth anniversary by hosting its yearly music festival June 14-16. Because who doesn’t love milestones, beer and live music?

The brewery will have two stages, with each musical act alternating each stage so guests can “move with the music.” Bands will play the dueling stages with little to no down time. Here’s the full lineup:

June 14: 5-7 p.m., Hurt & Skip; 7-10 p.m.: Amongst the Trees

June 15: Noon-2 p.m.: Rufus Lee & the Handful Trio; 2-4 p.m.: The Night Owls; 4-6 p.m.: Reedy River String Band; 6-9 p.m.: Randomonium

June 16: Noon-2 p.m.: Swamptooth; 2-4 p.m.: Doug Jones Duo; 4-6 p.m.: Abbey Elmore Band

Fireforge is located at 311 E. Washington St. in downtown Greenville.


The Greenville Zoo announced on social media it will get its own beer, the Long Neck Hazy IPA brewed by Peak Drift Brewing Co. in Columbia. Fluor Field will also carry the zoo brew in the near future.

Tasting notes: How does a hazy IPA differ from a regular IPA? Generally speaking, a hazy IPA will have a less bitter flavor than a regular IPA, which is famous for a hop-forward bite. The result is an overall more mellow beer with tropical fruit notes – perfect for summer.

The zoo will soon offer beer and wine year-round.


Finally, a Greenville taphouse made its exit in late May.

The HabiTap, a business formerly located near Woodruff Road, quietly closed after five years in business. No news yet as to why the business closed or what might move in to the space at 1325 Miller Road.
