So I know I’ve already warned you guys that I’m phoning it in for the rest of the week. This is me, literally phoning it in.
These pictures were snapped with my phone a few weeks ago at the Goat and Compass in Wilmington. The Goat is Ernie and Dexter friendly, and when Amanda and I were there on a Friday afternoon (I was able to leave work early because our air conditioning was broken) they even had free buffalo wings. Score! Sadly, the wings were not Ernie and Dexter friendly (because dog farts are not people friendly).
They also have a pretty sweet beer garden out back. When the boys got tired of being inside Amanda and I took our beers out there to get some fresh air. Dex didn’t seem to like the gravel out there too much, and it was pretty funny to watch him daintily pick his way across the flagstones. Ernie, however, didn’t seem to mind and after scouting the perimeter, laid down in the crunchy gravel and took a nap.
To each his own, I guess.
Anyway, the next time you are in Wilmington – check out the Goat and Compass! They even have a chalkboard up in a corner (which used to be where you could play Wii until someone broke it *sigh*) where you can buy a beer for an absent friend and leave them a note. I’ve left one for you!
