After a long day at the trade show, we decided to head back to downtown Wilmington. Several people told us we should come back to the Third Friday concert and car show (Party at the Mural). We were going to eat at the General Denver Hotel that we visited yesterday after hearing some great reviews from some of the other vendors at the trade show. When the hostess told us the wait would be an hour and forty five minutes we decided to look for some vendors on the street.
We decided to try a southern barbecue sandwich from Beaugard’s Southern Bar B Que - we were a little skeptical because we know southern barbecue - it turned out to be a great choice. Tender pulled pork with just a hint of sandwich slaw - aka cole slaw back home - and a little mild sauce.
After finishing our tasty Southern bbq sandwiches we headed out to Main Street to see some of the fancy show cars. There were cars from the 30's to a 2013 Corvette, something for everyone! While we were looking at the cars we noticed a real excited guy helping arrange them. He turned out to be Steve Brown - Executive Director of Wilmington Main Street. It just so happened that he read our blog post from yesterday. He is another great and enthusiastic representative of this wonderful historic downtown. During our short visit here we've met a whole lot of very friendly people who are very proud of their little town and they should be!
