|Bob Timberlake's Lexington Gallery.|
Timberlake was readying for a show in New York's Hammer Gallery, but was more than willing to give us as much time as we had - never enough.
|This is what you see as you walk in. Gallery extends way back.|
|Lots of fun, you realize, wandering through the gallery.|
|Naturally, the Good Girls struck a pose with Bob.|
We had fun at our next stop, an early lunch at Lexington BBQ, also known as Lexington #1, Honey Monks and The Monk. You'd better aim for early or very late because lines form around the building during regular lunch and dinner times.
|There's an art to turning at just the right time.|
• They sell 60 to 65 gallons of hush puppy batter, 500 to 600 pounds of barbecue slaw and 200 to 300 gallons of tea a day.
|The finished product.|
|This line extended outside of the building.|
Time for a bit of liquid refreshment so we headed to Weathervane Winery.
|There's a gift shop, too.|
Situated at the southern end of North Carolina's Yadkin Valley, they make, as Sid says, no frills wine for the market.
The market wants it a bit sweet for our tastes, but expect improvement in anything produced in North Carolina's first federally-approved American Viticultural Area.
