A couple of weeks ago we went to 22 North for their rack of ribs special. 22 North is on the main strip in Wrightsville Beach for those of you who have not been there yet. This was a new bar for me, making this number 249. When we arrived it was pretty empty, since we tried to get there right as they opened. After we were seated, we looked through the drink menu and I found a drink called 22 North Martini. Obviously being at 22 North, I had to try this cocktail. The 22 North Martini consisted of Stoli Vanil Vodka, Amaretto & Peach Schnapps shaken with a splash of cranberry juice and sour mix.
After ordering my drink I went for a little walk around to take some pictures of the bar and restaurant. I found the bar in the back of the restaurant. The bar was so long I need to take two pictures to get it all in. The doorway between the restaurant and the bar basically makes the bar a whole separate room. When I came back to the table to enjoy my martini, our appetizer had just been placed on the table. We had decided to get the deep-fried scallops with cajun rice. Shortly after finishing our appetizer the ribs appeared. It was definitely a whole rack of ribs. Their rib special is on Mondays from 5:00pm – 10:00pm. For $9.95 you get a rack of ribs, potatoes and corn on the cob. I took a few pictures of the special when it was delivered to our table. That was a lot of food. So much so, that we were unable to order the peanut butter pie. I was really hoping for something sweet that evening. Well maybe next time, since they had a few choices that I would like to try.
Hopefully now that I am blogging about a special for Monday on Sunday, this will still be fresh in everyone’s mind tomorrow. As far as today, I am ready for some football. The Panthers take on the Dallas Cowboys at 4:30pm. I know we are about four hours away, but this is considered a home game. I am hoping to start a new page next week to start letting everyone know where to watch their favorite team. Please let me know what bar supports your team. I would love to get fans of each team in a couple of places, so you can all enjoy the game together. I am not sure where I will be watching, but a few of my choices for this game are, Slainte Monkey Junction, Seawitch or Hops Supply Co. If I am home in time I may stop by the pop-up market at The Sour Barn since it is open from 3:00pm until 7:00pm. Not sure I can stay up that late after traveling, but there is also karaoke at Calico Room at 10:00pm.
Well that is all for today. Sports, music or even just getting a drink, be sure to get out and have some FUN!!!!
