Ok so they don’t serve food (with the exception of handcrafted charcuterie boards which are yum and food trucks! ), but they feature their own line of meads and wines! The also have 16 craft beers on taps. There is usually live music or trivia going on and the fire pit is blazing nightly. Great place to unwind. The owner Nic is super nice so please tell him I sent you!

Located in Salisbury about 1.5hrs away. Our dear friend Tim and Elysia own this amazing break room! Stressed? Holding on to something mentally? Just want a cool date night? Go here!

There are several trailheads to our greenway so just ask and we’ll give you our favorites. Great for walking or riding bikes (there are bike repair stations along the route too). Wilkes county is beautiful and our greenway takes you through both downtown Wilkesboro and downtown North Wilkesboro. There are also several geocaches to enjoy!
