Fayetteville ~ Vick’s Drive-In is Closing after 57 Years…

By Catherine Pritchard Fayetteville Observer Staff writer

Customers crowded into Vick’s Drive-In on West Rowan Street on Tuesday, eager for a last pork chop sandwich, foot-long hot dog, order of gizzards, taste of chitterlings or other item before the 57-year-old soul food restaurant closes its doors for good tonight.

A chapter of Fayetteville history comes to a close tonight. I remember the restaurant opening. I was 11 years old. Like many, I have eaten their food–smothered chicken breast was a favorite. Their closing is a part of the rerouting of Rowan Street and the replacement of the Rowan Street Bridge.

The article by Catherine Pritchard of the Fayetteville Observer is a good read…

If we are lucky we’ll see Vick’s Drive-In again at another location [in the community]. Will it be the same???

I am proud to see one of my hometown theaters will show The Interview after other theaters decided to not show this Sony Pictures Entertainment movie. Below is a pic of the Cameo Art House Theatre I took 12/20.

This past October we set a new Flickr daily aggregate views record of 10,168 views to surpassed the previous record of 4,829 views.

To the best of my knowledge, my previous record daily aggregate views was a high of 4,829 views [11/18/2011]—most related to my iPhone mounting. Today’s 10,168 blows that record out of the water–that in 16 hours versus a full day!
