Wilmington Huddlers

I am considering opening another place though....I have been out of the ownership phase of my life for about 3 years, and am getting the itch to do it again.

I want a place that is sports enough for weirdos to wear their jerseys on gameday, but nice enough for the ladies to want to come in the door.

Have things like best sandwiches and wings in town, with two or three nights a week having a killer seafood special caught fresh from NC waters....

Just rambling here, but it's been on my mind for a little while.

Floppin..I used to go in there all the time when I worked in Brunswick County.

Now I rarely go over the bridge....live on the North side of town.

The reason Wilmington doesn't have a "Panthers" bar, is we are kinda known as fair weather fans, and are a pretty young fan base when compared to a lot of the rest of the NFL. Also there is always tons of poo to do as the weather never gets all that bad here, unlike Cleveland and Pittsburgh.

Also, Wilmington is not full of pasty, stretch mark covered, hot wing stealing, sweaty fat women like Cleveland and Pittsburgh. So there is that too.

I grew up in Wilmington, moved away for college in '93. I can't remember a sports bar in Wilmington. My old coach used to own Dawg's Bar off Eastwood. Used to be a Brew Thru across the street. We used to go to Rock-I-la Cafe to watch games Lol.

Hah...You moved away the same year I moved here. Thinking of the Brew Thru sparked a memory of a hot blonde that used to work there.

With a good selection of beer that place could work out very well. Determines the location, of course.

Exactly...Micro brews are key.

To be honest, Wilmington is a drinking town. Wilmington is yearning for a place like Flying Saucer, or some place that has a ton of good beers (not bud light, miller lite, coors light, etc.) on tap, and a place that has pretty good food as well. Cape Fear Wine and Beer has a bunch of good beers. Just no food.

Wilmington needs a beer pub like World of Beer here in Charlotte or The Yard House.

OK, so what's the roll call for this area... based on this thread it's:

Me, floppin, Kurb, shuttlesworth (Cantrell), WilmyWood, Jinx, thunderaiden, carolinapf, bredy087, nctarheel0619, Doughboy88, cavss (soon), fuzz, and G()at

I also know that MCP, jbeason, PantherPryd, SmittyourSavior, EdwardTeach, and Bwood are here... I think chknwing is here too... DirtyMagic was here for a while, but I'm pretty sure he moved.

Who else?

Klong moved, SCP is from here but lives in SC

You guys should start a group a la Bills Backers or Browns Backers. There is a pub near my place in Tega Cay that is an official Bills Backers bar. They made up a little plaque and poo. Panthers fans need to create a backers group, tie the poo into the huddle somehow. Design an official logo, t shirts, and stickers to give to the bar.

Panthers Backers

Panther Pride

Something. Get on it creative people. Most of you are IT so I know you ain't got poo to do.

There are enough people in Cali to get a west coast chapter started.
