That was a heck of a game, wasn’t it?

Pretty much like the rest of America, Super Bowl Sunday revolves around the Super Bowl. And like most places there loyalties are divided.

A very informal pole seemed to indicate a few more Eagles fans than Patriots, but as surveys go, the sample size was somewhat limited.

Still, Eagles fans are pretty happy, Patriot faithful disappointed, but one thing is certain—that was a game for the ages.

As always, lots of parties and a number of bars and taverns filled up with the faithful.

Yes, the Outer Banks is a remarkable place to live or visit, but when you come right down to it, we’re about as American as it gets.

Now that the Super Bowl is behind us, we’ll start looking forward to what the rest of the winter and spring have to offer—keeping in mind, of course, that summer is closing in soon.

Valentine’s Day falls on a Wednesday this year, which may be a great excuse to get away to the Outer Banks for a few days.

For the gourmet, there are a couple of events featuring food coming up.

The Striper’s Outer Banks Chili Cook-off is Monday, February 19—that’s President’s Day.

The big culinary event is the 2018 Taste of the Beach, March 22-25 this year.
