The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Bypass Barbecue in North Carolina


4. Insider’s Tip

Former bait-and-tackle shop Johnny's draws food trucks and live music on weekends.   

Don't confuse Johnny’s (901 W. Main St.; 919-593-5551) with a typical bait-and-tackle shop. In the backyard, find a local hangout, café, food-truck hub, and farmers' market. On Fridays and Saturdays, Indian, taco, and crêpe trucks pull up at 6 p.m., and jazz and jam sessions start around the fire pit. Grab a Carolina Brewery growler from the adjoining general store.
