Lunch & Learn: For Here or To Go

  • Chapman Cultural Center 200 E. St. John Street Spartanburg, SC (map)

Presented by authors Brandy Lindsey and Baker Maultsby, "For Here or To Go” uncovers the history of local drive-ins, drive-thrus and diners. From hot dogs all the way and fries to chili cheeseburgers and onion rings, Spartanburg's family-owned establishments have indulged the cravings of locals and visitors alike for generations. The 2009 book offers a behind-the-counter look at these restaurants from the early days of car hops and curb service to inside the dining and drive-thru windows of today.
