Forgo that plastic straw. Skip that plastic cover on your coffee. Mindful consumption of single-use consumer plastics results in a significant positive impact on the environment, and even one person’s effort makes a difference. A walk along one of Wilmington’s beautiful beaches makes the issue glaringly apparent. Straws suck.
The search for the best shrimp and grits in Wilmington NC starts with an appreciation of the history of the dish. Think morning, hours before the sun rises. Crews of local shrimpers, headed out for a hard day at sea.
