A new Greek Restaurant! This is we a major hit the the fish lovers! Like me!🐠 Just announced! 🐠

Kipos Hellenic Cuisine opens Saturday, August 27th with Chef George Delidimos! 🎉

Legendary restaurateur Giorgios Bakatsias of Giorgios Hospitality Group announces the opening of GHG’s first Wilmington, NC restaurant – in Lumina Station at 1900 Eastwood Road (in the former 1900 Restaurant and Lounge space).

This extension of his wildly popular Kipos brand will be helmed by Greek Chef George Delidimos. 🎉A celebration of the food and culture of Bakatsias’ homeland, this new Kipos will feature an intentional focus on the sea. Kipos Hellenic Cuisine serves as an elevated counterpoint to Bakatsias’ beloved and more rustic Kipos Greek Taverna located in Chapel Hill, NC.

“We are really excited to bring our love for the coastal cooking of Greece to Wilmington,” explained Bakatsias, who learned to garden and cook with his mother in the quiet village of Karista, Greece. Giorgios Bakatsias immigrated to the US with his family when he was 12, and since the age of 23 has been sharing his love for Greek food with diners. Kipos will host an official Ribbon Cutting Thursday, August 25th at 11am, and officially open for dinner Saturday, August 27th at 5pm.

(Kipos will be open Tuesday-Thursday & Sundays from 5-10 and Fridays & Saturdays until 11pm. Kipos will be closed Mondays.) Reserve at OpenTable and follow @KiposCuisineWilmington 🎉

A new Greek Restaurant! This is we a major hit the the fish lovers! Like me!

10 THINGS TIME HAS TAUGHT ME

1. Most of our life is spent chasing false goals and worshipping false ideals. The day you realise that is the day you really start to live.

2. You really, truly cannot please all of the people all of the time. Please yourself first and your loved ones second, everyone else is busy pleasing themselves anyway, trust me.

3. Fighting the ageing process is like trying to catch the wind. Go with it, enjoy it. Your body is changing, but it always has been. Don’t waste time trying to reverse that, instead change your mindset to see the beauty in the new.

4. Nobody is perfect and nobody is truly happy with their lot. When that sinks in you are free of comparison and free of judgement. It’s truly liberating.

5. No one really sees what you do right, everyone sees what you do wrong. When that becomes clear to you, you will start doing things for the right reason and you will start having so much more fun.

6. You will regret the years you spent berating your looks, the sooner you can make peace with the vessel your soul lives in, the better. Your body is amazing and important but it does not define you.

7. Your health is obviously important but stress, fear and worry are far more damaging than any delicious food or drink you may deny yourself. Happiness and peace are the best medicine.

8. Who will remember you and for what, become important factors as you age. Your love and your wisdom will live on far longer than any material thing you can pass down. Tell your stories, they can travel farther than you can imagine.

9. We are not here for long but if you are living against the wind it can feel like a life-sentence. Life should not feel like a chore, it should feel like an adventure.

10. Always, always, drink the good champagne and use the things you keep for ‘best’. Tomorrow is guaranteed to no one. Today is a gift that’s why we call it the present. Eat, Drink (or don’t) & Be Merry.

We will talk about this soon! Stand By!

International Rum Day!
Pirate Myth - The Rum
Popular culture and the modern image of the pirate do not distinguish rum from the character. It is one of the founding elements like the wood leg, the eye mask, and the parrot. Captain Johnson in his two-volume publication on the history of the most famous pirates or Robert Louis Stevenson with his adventure novel obviously contributed to the broadcast of this performance.

Nevertheless, rum consumption by sailors, and Caribbean flibusters particularly, is not a myth. The biographies of pirates Henry Morgan or Edward Teach fuel this phenomenon with the abusive use of rum. But when is he from archaeology? Does it allow you to illustrate this consumption through vestiges of different kinds?

We know of several cases of tavern digs in Port Royal (Jamaica), on the east coast of North America but also in London that have provided very interesting results. These investigations confront popular folklore with archaeological and historical reality by showing that alcohol and liquor consumption was dedicated to all layers of the population. These taverns were also a haven for a wealthy population with high-end china porcelain and glassware.

There is nothing to say whether or not the searched taverns welcomed pirates, but sailors, most likely. Finally, archeological findings supported the idea that onion shaped glass bottles were used for all kinds of alcohol demonstrating misuse of the generic term "wine bottle".

Pirate Myth: Rum!

Popular culture and the modern image of the pirate do not dissociate the character's rum. It is part of one of the founding elements in the same way as the wood leg, the eye patch and the parrot. Captain Johnson in his two-volume monograph on the history of the most famous pirates or Robert Louis Stevenson with his adventure novel have obviously participated in the dissemination of this representation.

Nevertheless, the consumption of rum among seafarers, and in particular Caribbean buccaneers, is not a myth. The biographies of pirates Henry Morgan or Edward Teach fuel this phenomenon with the misuse of rum. But when is there archaeology? Does it allow to illustrate this consumption through vestiges of different kinds?

There are several cases of tavern excavations in Port Royal (Jamaica), on the east coast of North America but also in London which have provided very interesting results. These investigations made it possible to compare popular folklore with archaeological and historical reality by showing that the consumption of alcohol and liqueurs was dedicated to all segments of the population. These taverns were also the refuge of a well-to-do population with the presence of Chinese porcelain and top-of-the-range stemware.

There is no reason to say that the taverns searched have or not pirates but sailors, most likely. Finally, the archaeological findings supported the idea that onion-shaped glass bottles were used for all kinds of alcohol demonstrating the misuse of the generic term “wine bottle”.

In honor of today being National Lighthouse Day, I am honoring my daughter-in-law Carla Schoonmaker for her role in helping relocate the Cape Hatteras Loghthouse many years ago! Unbelievable that they moved it and restored it to a better condition than when they started the move! ... See MoreSee Less

Thank you for your part in history Carla Schoonmaker!! I loved watching the updates each day and loved watching the documentary. One of our home town boys, I grew up with worked on that crew. Such a awesome job!!❤🙏

Coolest job ever!

We were there on vacation and got to watch. Lasting lifetime memory especially for my children. All things are possible!

We plan to look you up when we come to Kure Beach in October. Will you be booking adventures in the off season?

Cool job. All I got a flattened dime 🙂

VERY cool!

Awesome

Amazing!!!

Super Cool!!

Tried and true!Look what we learned from the Carolina Beach Ocean Rescue today! Stung by a jelly? Grab a ID or credit card and firmly scrape the area to remove the tiny barbed stingers! Vinegar, in some situations can actually make the sting worse. ... See MoreSee Less

Tried and true!

This is an antiquated method. In the last 5 to 10 years they have found that heat packs on stings works better because it essentially breaks down/kills the toxins. Scraping them can cause unfired barbs to inject venom.

Meat tenderizer dilutes it

What about pee? 😆

Yup, sums life up rather nicely!Are you doing this if you’re not should!

Asking yourself what you love to do more than anything?

And are you doing it?

I love doing something that gets me excited that I can't stop doing because it feels so good………..

No I'm not talking about sex I'm talking about what sets you on fire…………

What is it that you could do and lose yourself in?

Something that takes you away and allows you to forget about everything else except what you are doing?

This is must do………..

A life essential…………..

Feed your soul do what you love and if you don’t do it for a living do it as often as you can………

I sing, sometimes I don't want to go to sleep because I love it so much………….

I paint, until I am so exhausted that my mind and my body are at complete peace………..

I write until my thoughts make sense and are aligned with my soul………..

Sometimes I walk in the woods along a trail I get completely lost in the beauty and peace around me and I realize that I have found myself again…………

And then there are the times that I dance in the middle of my living room with just my socks on my hardwood floors………….

Enjoy your life…………

It's yours to do whatever you want to do with it………..

Make every moment count……….

I’ve often heard people say that we only live once we live every day we only die once………..

LIVE……….

"I asked an elderly man once what it was like to be old and to know the majority of his life was behind him. He told me that he has been the same age his entire life. He said the voice inside of his head had never aged. He has always just been the same boy. His mother's son. He had always wondered when he would grow up and be an old man. He said he watched his body age and his faculties dull but the person he is inside never got tired. Never aged. Never changed.
Our spirits are eternal. Our souls are forever. The next time you encounter an elderly person, look at them and know they are still a child, just as you are still a child and children will always need love, attention and purpose."

Like the “Lostboys” in Peter Pan, never grow up! Never Ever grow up!
