Roanoke Island First Fridays continue on October 4, November 1, and December 6 to complete the 2013 season, and you won't want to miss a weekend! This is a perfect opportunity for a date night, a night for the family to explore Manteo's Historic Waterfront, or a relaxing way to wrap up a busy day.
Start your First Friday adventure with dinner at Avenue Grille, a waterfront restaurant specializing in fresh and local seafood. Dinner can begin with refreshing Shrimp Avocado Salad to share and then try Blue Crab Bisque or Tuna Oscar. No matter what you order, you'll enjoy a delicious meal that will leave you refreshed and ready to check out the First Friday exhibits.
After dinner, wander around the corner to Mellow Dog Gallery where you will find eclectic works by artists in a variety of media. Browse paintings, jewelry, and other items. Find modestly priced items that are perfect for your vacation souvenier. You might even be lucky enough to meet Jake - the mellow dog.
Finally, find delicious local honey, micro-brews, and wines, stop in at Stock-Aide General Store before your First Friday adventure ends. They carry everything you need - and everything that you didn't know you need. Who can resist a local general store?
Return to The White Doe Inn and share your finds with us. We can't wait to hear about what you saw during First Friday!
