Somewhere between wrapping Mr. Eko like a birthday present and finishing our Incredible Dog Challenge video, I neglected to mention that we are finishing up our North Carolina visit by spending the weekend in Charlotte. On our way from Raleigh to Charlotte, Eko and I decided to take a detour to Durham for some lunch.
The Q-Shack in Durham is famous for it’s BBQ food. Eko sunbathed next to our picnic table while I ate myself into a food coma.
We also took a stroll around Duke’s campus
And we saw the most refined statue of all time. The Duke has a cane and a cigar. All this statue is really missing is a glass of bourbon whiskey.
So now we’re in Charlotte through Monday. Around six tonight, we will be heading to Charlotte’s only dog-friendly bar – the conveniently named Dog Bar. We’ll be hanging out watching football for a while, so if you’re in the area come stop by and we’ll buy you a drink. Eko’s paying.
Eko is ready for Charlotte, but is Charlotte ready for Eko?
