You did it: boarded the windows, filled the gas tank, secured flying objects from your yard/porch, cleaned every ounce of laundry, refueled battery packs for electronics, bought all the snacks indicative of a 5-year-old diet (hello, Cap’n Crunch and SpaghettiOs), and stocked up on hurricane juice (i.e. ABC spirits, beer, wine, Moonshine…). Now it’s time for a beer and cheers to your fellow man, who checked off pretty much the same list today.
Need not worry! Local watering holes and food establishments are here to serve dear Wilmingtonians. Go ahead and help clean out their Frigidaires before the power goes out—and with discounted inventory, nonetheless.
Here are a few places to hit up on Wednesday afternoon/night to pre-game the hurricane. Dumb-dumb Dorian can’t keep you down.
