Today I met up with a friend for some good ol’ North Carolina BBQ. After lunch I rolled by the local bike shop here in Wilmington and then down to the beach.
Check out nine more photos below.
There is nothing, I repeat nothing that compares to North Carolina BBQ. Lexington-style pulled pork, Brunswick stew and hush puppies to top it off.
My friend Drew and I went to Casey’s BBQ, an all-you-can-eat for $8 southern buffet. You have no idea…
The visual texture of this place is mind-numbing after you’ve stuffed your face.
After lunch, we rolled over to the local bike shop here in town, Two-Wheeler Dealer where this baby has been hanging in the rafters since before I can remember.
It’s a custom Merckx from the late-80’s, painted in the Molteni orange we’ve all come to love and built with a full Campy 50th group. The owner of the shop went to Belgium and got it custom built for him back in the 80’s. It’s gorgeous!
There’s also a McLean built with Super Record. McLean built bicycles here in Wilmington in the 80’s and 90’s. I’m not sure who painted the bikes but this one is practically NOS.
What shop is complete without vintage jerseys?
From there I went down to the beach where it was a ghost town.
There were maybe a dozen people on the beach, if that. Wrightsville Beach is almost entirely vacant in the winter, with only the locals sticking it out through the winter. I took a ton of other photos, mostly out of boredom so head over to my Flickr to check them out. Holidaze…
