So last night kicked off a very busy weekend for Captain Seahorse and me. We started the night with a small bite to eat and a couple of glasses of wine at Cork and Tap because I had a groupon I needed to use before it expired. It was also a recommendation from my dad because he knows the owner and knows I enjoy visiting different places.
Cork and Tap is located just outside of downtown Greenville on Mills Avenue. It is a neighborhood bar with a small selection of wine, beer and tapas. Cork and Tap has a very relaxed atmosphere and gives a cool vibe with a music selection that Captain Seahorse rather enjoyed. It wasn’t very busy last night, which was a surprise because I saw a wine tasting started at 7. There was only one employee and he was doing it all-host, bartender, chef, busboy.
When we walked in, we stood around for a minute or so, once again trying to figure things out. I finally decided to just sit down on the couch next to the door. Captain Seahorse noticed a guy that seemed to be working and asked him how things worked. He told us just to sit wherever and he would take care of us. After looking over the menu, Captain Seahorse ordered a glass of cabernet and the portobello and feta sandwich. I ordered a glass of chardonnay and the baked jarlsburg ham sandwich. Captain Seahorse noticed shortly after we ordered the waiter was preparing food behind the bar.
We sat drinking our wine and chatting for a while, and then our sandwiches arrived. Captain Seahorse said his sandwich was pretty good. He was not impressed with his glass of cabernet, it was kind of bubbly. I was not really moved by my sandwich, it was just something to eat.
Cork and Tap is a very cool place to meet a few friends for drinks, but I don’t think I’d make this a regular spot for me. We will visit again at a later date for trivia on Wednesday nights-Captain Seahorse has to put all of those fun history facts he knows to good use somehow.
