Restaurant Review...."Carolina Brewery and Grill" Pittsboro NC

Image
A couple of weekend ago Joe, Erica and I decided to go to Pittsboro NC to try the Carolina Brewery and Grill.  We had checked out the menu on line and it did not look very expense so off we went....

Nice welcoming building...

Art work for sale on every wall...

Hush puppies, Bar-B-Q, and
Brunswick Stew....

Running low on funds so
I ordered a hotdog and a glass of Riesling.  It was tasty.
It was a large open restaurant.  Nice bar area.
Very friendly folks. Casual setting.  If you are in Pittsboro and looking for a good meal and maybe a beer I would suggest Carolina Brewery and Grill.
Get out and try a new restaurant.
Enjoy Your World:-)

Several weeks ago I watched "The Sixth Sense".  I love that movie.  The twists and turns the surprise ending.  And that adorable little boy, what an amazing actor, and who doesn't like Bruce Willis:-)
The little boy did not share much in regard to his thoughts and feelings.  He kept them hidden.  He kept his pain hidden.  I loved his relationship with his mom.

He loved her deeply and could read her.  At one point he asked her why she was so sad, her reply "What makes you think I'm sad", Cole's reply "Your eyes told me".  I think some of us would love for someone to care so deeply about us that they could see through our facade and see our pain.  That they could look in our eyes and read what is behind our smile, our mask.  Well there is someone:-)  God.  He sees our pain, he sees our loneliness, he sees our confusion, he sees our guilt, he sees our fear, he sees our utter devastation.  And guess what?  He loves us!  (I do wish he would make ph…

So off I went and it was beautiful.  Here are a few pictures from my adventure.....

I am reading a book called "Small Island" by Andrea Levy".  There is a quote that I came across in my reading that really touched me......
"He looked so pained that I dreamed of taking his hands and making him dance". This quote was directed at someone the character did not really care for.  He was a harsh self centered person.  But her compassion for his pain made her want to help him, to make him dance.  Wow, to me that is pretty powerful.  God's love in a way.....































"By you my sorrow is turned into dancing,  you have taken away my clothing of grief and given me robes of joy"  Psalm 30:11 Happy Monday Everyone! Enjoy Your World:-)
