Jack Brown's Bar and Grill Greenville NC
This cool place is not large but we love the all around experience here. From a deep fried oreo and burger contest, trivia night and more, this place is pretty dang cool and open to 2am. Of course, we bring kids when it's not a date night so we are usually here early and leave no later than 9pm.
You Get in this unique 100 Notch Club if you try 100 different beers and ciders! Of course that meant Challenge Accepted for Gina and me!!
As you can see as of January 2020, we were only about 1/4 of the way to our 100 notches! Gina used a 1-5 scale and I used a 1-10 Scale
In our quest to earn 100 notches, I tried this waitress recommendation when the sampler drafts didn't really sparkle any interest. Gina of course asked how many samplers would I continue to try haha! The waitress let me try this based on my ranking orders on my notch card. It was pretty good at a 7/10 rating for me.
Before this place, Landon would only eat Chicken Tenders so thank you JBs!! Let's put it this way. On one of Landon's birthdays, Landon chose to go to Red Robin but nope... not for burgers... Chicken freakin' tenders haha! Kamryn and Landon enjoy this place and we often play games and simply hang out.
Gina ranked this Sea Dog Wild Blueberry pretty high at 4.75/5 and yep, I love my bourbon and when related to beer it was an even higher rating at 10/10 for me!
I love the metal art around Greenville and JB's has it near the front of it's entrance!!
Sometimes we will meet up here before getting kiddos for a quick daytime date
Jack Brown's has a large number of custom creative style burgers!! The Cowboy is my fav but I love many of them!!
You can't leave this place without trying a deep fried OREO!!!
The record as of January 2020 is 23 of these!
ECU College Buddy Darrin, Running Buddy Anthony and I taking care of business! Anthony has already made the 100 notch club and will soon hit 200!! This is him on February 4th, 2020.
I love the metal art around Greenville. JB's is no exception.
This about sums it up with Kamryn's thumbs up!!!
The Copper Penny Wilmington NC
This cool place in Wilmington was a lucky find from a simple google search in my attempts to find food near Landon's soccer matches. My martial arts mentor Vikki couldn't meet up but my former co-worker and workout buddy Tom was able to meet me here. Time sure slips by so make those efforts to continue to connect with your friends and especially your family!
I really liked this hallway to the bathrooms! Anytime I see some old school vinyl albums, it brings back lots of memories of growing up and my dad's extensive collection.
This loaded burger and sweet potato fries were incredible!!
Of course, Landon went with the Chicken Tenders!
Me and my buddy Tom!
Tom is an RN now in leadership roles but is also a minister. It's always great to catch up while also praising God for our blessings.
Tapped Greenville NC
This bar is great to meet friends and may even have a food truck off and on! It has a large selection of board and other games, cards, and even old school arcade games. They are also registered with the Untapped App so you can rate your drinks and toast your friends! Jeff and I went to ECU together. He was roommates with one of my ECU XC Teammates Ricky!
Tim, Kent, Nate and Brian
Great place to meet my friends and simply relax after hard work weeks
Tim, Charles, Nate, Kent, and Brian
In the background, you'll see the quirkle game our family plays... if you come relatively early it's family friendly and they even have a set of games, arcade games, and even children's books.
Pitt Street Brewing Company Greenville NC
Great place to meet friends! My favorite beer here was the Cat Scratch Fever but it unfortunately rotated out. Plenty of other good stuff though!!
Gina's work crew selected this place for the Christmas Social. Here we are having some fun with pictures
Anchalee Thai Greenville NC
By far my favorite Thai Restaurant so far! Yes, we've been to many in many places but this place is the best when looking at quality and cost etc.
Well, let's try Thai Beer since we are eating Thai food!
My favorite dish... Red Curry Chicken with spice level 3/5. Sometimes, I will add a Mango too for that sweet and spicy combo I love so much!
Kids love the Spring Rolls and Gina typically gets the Chicken no spice Pad See Ew. I love it all!
Bright Penny Mebane NC
Gina found this great place! As you can see, we both have a love to explore new places to eat, drink and have adventures!!
Junction on 70 Mebane NC
Another cool place near Landon's soccer training area.
It was a cool place but Gina and I just got appetizers this round.
First Watch Greenville NC
This place is awesome but definitely expensive overall. You pay for the creative dishes and presentation for sure but sometimes you simply deserve it. We spend about what we would for dinner here so I would make it your brunch.
I chose the Farmhouse Skillet Hash. It was great for sure but not sure if $12 worth for breakfast foods. I held the onions and added the grilled peppers instead. YUM!
Landon never goes wrong with bacon and waffles... how about those fruit buddy!
Gina had this omelette and had plenty to take with her for another small meal later.
Kamryn eats a little all the time but enjoyed eggs, pancakes and bacon!
Mebane Knights Mebane NC
I decided to share the pimento cheese dip with pita chips. It was good but I think warmed up dip would of been lots better. I wasn't exactly hungry yet but honestly just wanted to try a new place with different craft beers.
The tomato basil soup was really good!
This potato soup got a 10 from me! Gina and I shared the soups and pita chips etc.
EAT23 Greenville NC
Gina and I found this new place in town. It's near our karate school. Gina found a video about the owner and the restaurant. Once we saw it, we were sold and had to try it out.
The prices were good and the food and service were even better! For the food prices vs value etc, this ranks high among all the places we've been. The drinks were a bit high but the coffee bar was neat as you could check out multiple flavors etc.
I tried several and my fav was the mix of Banana Crunch with Sensual Chocolate.
Simple yet perfect for me....
Gina chose this masterpiece and yep I tried it and it was amazing!!
The cool thing is that you can order breakfast or lunch foods here! You guessed it... Landon with chicken tenders! It does close at 3pm so make it another great spot to go early in the day!
The inside in nice so don't judge the food and eating atmosphere from the outside...
