The food, preparation, and spirit emulate the local Hot Dog stand of the 1950’s…but improved. Stacey and Bryon Hickman are both local born and reared. Northeastern North Carolina BBQ is minced with coleslaw on…and so it is at Bryon’s. Then what in the world is the Nixon’s BBQ doing on a hot dog bun? Because this is a hot dog stand first, and then some. Orange, lemon, and lime are squeezed fresh to remind us of the local soda fountain . There is an assortment of novelty candies and other drinks that correctly complement the Hot Dog and BBQ. The grilled hot dog on the steamed bun is made distinctive by the 11 ingredients found in the chili preparation. Some may want to add an old school twist with pig’s feet or a Kosher or Sour Dill pickle on the side. While the Hickman’s have captured the rural charm of the past, they create a spiritual atmosphere of reverence and courtesy. The radio plays contemporary Christian music at an easy to digest volume. Bring the kids. With Fall and Winter approaching, we can anticipate homemade soups and chicken potpie. Even now you can munch the homemade desserts and wash it down with a cup of Maxwell House coffee, or hot chocolate. Don’t forget; on the way out you can take a jar of Chapanoke honey home. Honey will not spoil. Enjoy time downtown Elizabeth City and experience Somewhere In Time at Bryon’s from 10:30 – 5, M-Th and 10:30 – 3 every Friday. Call 339-2493.

Next Evolution Wrestling If you weren’t sitting in a chair at the Elizabeth City National Guard Armory August 22, then you missed an exciting night of wrestling action. Loyalties were tested, alliances were made and chaos reigned. The night started with a few rookie guys looking to make a name for themselves. However, long time tag team and former NEW tag team champions Army of 2 taught the newcomers a few lessons that they won’t be forgetting anytime soon. Tag team champions The Geordie Bulldogs again showed their dominance in this sport by fighting a hard battle against Outlaw Inc. In the end the Bulldogs defeated Outlaw Inc, and succeeded in creating a rift in the team. Sam Bass blaming Ryan Nuzzi for their loss, walked out on his partner. What this means for their tag team no one knows yet. Main event, set to be the ultimate battle. AIWF champion Damien Wayne against NEW champion Beau Crockett, title against title. It started off with each champ trying to out wrestle the other. As Crockett started getting the upper hand, Wayne resorted to cheating, pulling every dirty move he could. After an impressive belly to belly suplex off the top rope Crocket began to get the upper hand only to have Sahara Se7en come out to interfere. This biggest surprise of the night was when Sterling Williams came out to help his friend Crockett and instead, pulled a double cross by attacking him along with Curtis Mack. In the end Beau Crockett won by a DQ and retained his title, but did not win the AIWF Heavy weight championship from Damien Wayne. Join us Oct. 31 at 7:30 pm to see the aftermath of the betrayals and new alliances. Costume contest, candy, prizes and great wrestling action, you don’t want to miss this!
