My brother and I will be visiting family in Carolina Beach the week of July 24-31. We tend to get a little antsy in the evenings after being with the family all day. Are there any local bars/restaurants worth checking out in the area? Maybe to grab a few drinks, shoot some pool?
We've been to Carolina Beach a few times before, and have been to the bar (might have been a restaurant too) at the pier, and a place called something like "the smallest bar in NC", but that's about it so far.
We will have access to a car, so we can head into Wilmington if we have to, but local places would definitely be easier. What about Kure or Wrightsville Beaches? Are they close, do they have any thing worth checking out?
Also, I've read that you have to have some sort of membership to drink in bars in NC. What's the story wiht that?
