Swimming to School

June 9, 2017

Heh. I remember when I was a student at UNCW. Flooding in Wilmington is a common occurrence. Especially in April-May and August-September.

I can't tell you the number of times I walked to my morning and afternoon classes barefoot with water half way up to my knees. And yet if we got the slightest bit of snow. Well, all hell would break loose. It's what happens when there are a few thousand boats but only two snowplows.

On top of that, if a light snow isn't enought to throw things into chaos you end up with road closures with no detour signs. How was I supposed to know that part of Atlantic AND wake forest road was closed? By turning around both times.

But it really depends on where you are. In my sister's county they already put out a delay. Supposedly where we are it's going to flooding.

'Brunch Bill' wins Senate Approval

June 7, 2017

I don't understand imposing your values on everyone else. Everyone else has to wait for the christian rites? Crazy. This means that Alcohol sales at restaurants starting at 10AM. I am talking about the 'Brunch Bill.'

"Surely, we can wait to start serving drinks until after the preacher has said the benediction."

If we're in Church... Sure.

But there's no preacher at my brunch though, so I'm not sure why that's a concern.

Your average churchgoing crowd isn't going to stop going to church just because you can order drinks in restaurants. If you think an extra 2 hours of booze is going to lose your congregation, you're just a shitty preacher who needs to work harder.

But Rev. Mark Creech, executive director of the Christian Action League, urged senators to defeat the measure, saying it poses a danger to public health and undermines the state's control system for liquor.
Calling the Sunday sales provision "sensitive to business interests but insensitive to churches," Creech argued, "Surely, we can wait to start serving drinks until after the preacher has said the benediction."

Separation of church and state please. 10am is nice but the whole restriction needs to be lifted because it's completely unconstitutional.

The Corner Kitchen

June 7, 2017

When I hear talk of slightly formal celebrations I always think of the Corner Kitchen. It is perfect for this type of thing. And in my oninion an A recommendation. I had my bridal brunch there a few years back. They were very accommodating and had everything ready on time. We didn't have a separate room but had our own space upstairs away from the crowds. It's an adorable house and the food is so good!

It is one of those places where you realize why you live in NC. It is just that friendly and they really go out of their way to make sure your experience is perfect.
