Writing this with the sunshine in my face in this morning. I cannot wait to get out later today.
I did get out yesterday and went some place new. Yes, number 197. I found this little place called the ER Pub. It has been the most interesting bar I have found. The ER Pub is located by New Hanover Hospital in a tiny strip mall. It is attached to a gas station/convenient store and you can go back and forth between them. This way you can get food there and eat it at the bar. I just had a drink there and did not eat since I already had plans for an early dinner. By the way on Wednesday and I think she said Monday too, it is 25% off wine by the glass and draft beers. I tried to take a couple pictures of the inside to show you what I was talking about. If you are ever in the neighborhood, you should stop by.
After leaving the ER Pub, I headed down 17th Street to Slice of Life. I met my daughter and a friend of hers there. Always helpful to have extra people eat all the food I order. We started with the nachos. There were so many containers on the side. They gave us sour cream, salsa and guacamole, but then we had the scallions and tomatoes also on the side. The plate was huge. I cannot believe we ordered a large pizza after eating that. We decided on a bacon pineapple pizza. It was good, but we did not finish the entire pizza. My daughter was able to take a couple slices home for later. It was time for dessert. I figured with three of us it would be easy. They only have one on the menu, so I thought we should try it. It was a locally made Nye’s ice cream sandwich. The choices were vanilla or chocolate peanut butter. That’s right, the chocolate peanut butter won. That was probably one of the best ice cream sandwiches I ever had. Too bad I only got a third. I will have to keep it in mind next time I go there, so I can have my own. LOL. They also gave me a list of their drink specials, so I will be adding them to the website.
Next week, I am meeting with the Wilmington Sharks to firm up our joint gift basket. We have gathered up some great items already and will be adding more over the next week. We will be making a list of all the items in one of next week’s blogs with more information. How to win this basket is easy. Just like us on FACEBOOK if you have not done so already. The winner will be picked randomly from all that have liked our page from creation to the drawing date which will be end of May, beginning of June. After you like our Facebook Page, please feel free to share with your friends so they will have a chance to win.

Well that’s all for now. Make sure to get out and enjoy the sunshine. Most of all, have FUN!!!!!
