I recently had some friends take me on a whirlwind tour of some pretty cool spots in Albemarle, NC. We started with lunch at the Goody Shop. I have driven by this place a million times and didn't realize it was there. For those of you that like our recent video of Z Pi, you'll find the Goody Shop right across the street. All of their hamburgers are hand-pattied every day, their onion rings are beer battered and delicious and I hear they have the best chicken salad around. I also got a glimpse of a hot dog and it's on my list of things to try next! The main thing to keep in mind is that they are only open from 7-2 each day so get there early!

After lunch, one of my friends asked if I had ever been upstairs at the Music Store (right next door to the Goody Shop). 3 of us headed to the back of the store, asked the lady there if we could go up and much to my surprise the entire upstairs was filled with model train villages! It was unbelievable!

After all of my excitement about these two shops, I was asked if I had ever had pie at the Rosebriar. I had heard of the Rosebriar, but because they're only open at lunch, I had never been. We stopped by for a quick slice and it was absolutely wonderful. This restaruant is known for their pie, but you'll see by the looks of the overflowing parking lot that they have pretty good food too! Check out their article in Our State Magazine!
