JEFF “SMITTY” SMITH

Even if you haven’t met Jeffrey L. Smith in person, chances are you’ve heard of him. Smith is better known as Smitty, the namesake and driving force behind Smittysnotes.com. Over the past 15 years, his “notes” have become the unofficial guide to Winston-Salem’s social scene, telling readers what to do and where to go.

1. You work in Greensboro and commute every day. Why live in Winston-Salem?
“Well, I’ve lived in Albert Hall downtown for years, long before it was the ‘cool’ thing to do. I was sucked in to the whole loft thing because I was intrigued. My mom was like, ‘Why are you doing this?’ Then four years later, she’s bringing her friends over.”

2. Where’s the first place you take out-of-town guests?
“Lately, I’ve been taking friends to the Spring House. That place is great. I love the atmosphere—an old historical house that’s been converted into a unique restaurant—and the chef there is a rock star. Hard to beat that.”

3. What’s your favorite annual event?
“Opening day at the ballpark is a blast. I think the Dash have changed the way people view baseball in this city; there’s always something going on at the games. You can listen to the music, watch the crowd … all sorts of things.”

4. What do you like most about our city?
“I’d say the people, from the homeless guys I meet on the street to the company CEOs I see out and about; I talk to all of them. This is just a very nice place with very special people.”

5. What’s the biggest misconception about Winston-Salem?
“People might say it’s an insular city, and to a certain degree, it is. But once folks feel comfortable with you, you’ll find that they’re pretty giving. Winston is a very community-oriented town.”
