Local Monday with Whit's Frozen Custard Made Fresh Daily in Mount Airy

white frozen custard type ice cream with yellow sugar cone Whits Frozen Custard *Made Fresh Daily* in Mount Airy, NC

I had the pleasure of visiting Whit’s Frozen Custard Made Fresh Daily in Mount Airy on their grand opening, February 3rd 2020. I accompanied our Marketing and Social Media representative April Rhodes-Tillery to follow up on a job we had recently finished for the building. Not bad for my first day with SERVPRO of Winston Salem North as their new Events and Marketing representative, not bad at all. 

When I walked in, the owner’s of Whit's remarked on how much they appreciated SERVPRO of Winston Salem North coming in and making it "Like it never even happened.” 

The owner’s of Whit's informed me that as stated in their name, that they make their custard “fresh daily” with a variety of flavors. I was offered a sample of their Vanilla and Butter Pecan flavors. Although both were creamy and delicious, I decided to go with their Butter Pecan custard on one of their small cones and it was delicious

If you visit their website, they will tell you that three flavors is all anyone needs to create an endless variety of flavor combinations when you consider all their fruit toppings, nuts, and candies that can be blended into custard to make their famous Whitser. And you can't go wrong with their hand-dipped waffle cones and all their other delicious treats. 

Come check out their weekly rotating flavors on their website for tasty new treats. This week's flavor is Chocolate Covered Strawberry. It has Strawberry custard with fresh strawberries and dark chocolate flakes. This delightful dessert would be perfect for you and your Valentine or honestly, anyone who wants a delicious treat this week.

white screen with the Reboot Arcade Logo REBOOT ARCADE BAR Phone: (336) 893-6697 Address: 534 N Liberty St, Winston-Salem, NC 27101

Reboot Arcade Bar is a 80's and 90's style classic arcade. Boasting over 60 Pinball and Arcade machines.  It is probably the BEST place to end your night in Winston-Salem. Most machines either take 25¢ to 50¢. A bargain compared to most other entertainment venues in the area. With an ever rotating assortment of machines, you are bound to always find something new. 

They also host a Full Service Bar, with some pretty amazing Signature cocktails, like the 'Pop A Smurf' or the 'Swamps of Dagoba'. Craft beer and fun shooters. It is also a Dominoes pizza hot spot, so don't worry about the lack of kitchen. 

During Daylight hours (until 9pm), it is a family friendly establishment. They do request that all minors be accompanied by an adult. I took my 10 year old up there, and showed him how we really played games when I was growing up. He had an amazing time, and I finally won a few games.  It has turned into a perfect mommy and son time, and we always have a blast.

Old North State Winery in Downtown Mount Airy

You can find them on 308 North Main Street
Mount Airy, North Carolina 27030

Founded in 2002 by Ben Webb, Old North State Winery is unlike any other winery in North Carolina. Born and raised in Mt. Airy, founder Ben Webb studied both Viticulture and Enology in college, and upon graduating, began his quest to make outstanding North Carolina wines by planting a 10-acre vineyard on his family farm in eastern NC. As the vines matured, he then planted 18 more acres in the Yadkin Valley. With its clay loom soil and mild climate, Ben successfully grew Cabernet Franc, Chamboucin, Riesling, Petit Manseng, and Carlos and Nobel Muscadines a native NC grape.

It would be the grapes from these early plantings that Ben would use to create an outstanding list of award-winning wines. Building the winery from scratch, Ben was able to take all that he had learned about growing grapes and making wine and pair it with his love for technology and build one of the most technologically advanced wineries in the United States.

In addition to his outstanding wines, Ben wanted to do something to help the entire Mt. Airy economy. So, rather than house the winery at the vineyard, he located Old North State in downtown Mt. Airy with the goal of re-establishing the downtown area as a vibrant, growing economic center.   Today, Old North State Winery serves as one of the leading tourism destinations in the Yadkin Valley.

Housed in a former Hardware store built in 1890 on Main Street, Ben and his wife Ellie have successfully created a fun, hip, up-beat atmosphere combining wine tasting tours, a cool ambiance, outstanding food, live entertainment and events to create a true entertainment and dining destination. The winery still has the original pressed tin ceilings and solid oak floors from when it was originally built.

The winery is open 6 days a week with tasting tours available throughout the day.

Dining is available for lunch and dinner featuring locally grown and freshly prepared specials by world-renowned chef Chris Wishart.

4 Black kittens playing with string The spooky boys at play time.

As a Locally Owned and Operated business, SERVPRO of Winston-Salem North was looking for a wonderful way to give back to our community Nothing says more about our community, then they way we treat those below and around us.

Ever heard the line "there's no such thing as too much of a good thing" Well, then you need to meet the "spooky bros"

I got to foster 5 lovely all black kittens for the past 3 weeks! My house was literally bursting with kitten love. 

Graveyard, Slasher, Spooky , Ghost and Nightmare are looking for their Fur-ever home, just in time for Halloween! They were all raised around Dogs, Cats, Small Children, and other people. They enjoyed a car ride or two, and were all litter box trained. They enjoy crinkly and squeaky toys.

Brown and Tan colored, short hair adoptable dog Zuri hanging out at her foster home

Forsyth Humane Society and SERVPRO of Winston-Salem North's Adoptable Pet of the Week

As a Locally Owned and Operated business, SERVPRO of Winston-Salem North was looking for a wonderful way to give back to our community Nothing says more about our community, then they way we treat those below and around us. 

This Week we'd like everyone to meet ZURI

Zuri's foster says: She is a very sweet, friendly, and energetic dog. She is potty trained and does well in the crate at night and when no-one is home. She knows "sit" "paw" "stay". Zuri is learning how to let go after fetching sticks. She gets along well with other dogs and plays well. Zuri will do well with an active person or family that will continue to provide the training she craves. She wants to please and is affection and treat motivated. She would do well in a home with no cats, because she has a very strong energy drive, and wants to play too rough with them.

This week we’re all about CAT-Attitude, and Without further Ado Here is Chris!

Chris is a Grey and White Domestic Medium Hair Kitten. He loves to Curl up around your shoulders and purr away. He’s at an age that he’ll be an ideal family addition. He’s still young and growing, so it’ll be easy to introduce him to kids and other household pets. I remember when my family brought home my first pet, and we grew up together. Let Chris be your children's new best friend!

Forsyth Humane Society and SERVPRO of Winston-Salem North's Adoptable Pet of the Week

As a Locally Owned and Operated business, SERVPRO of Winston-Salem North was looking for a wonderful way to give back to our community.  I spent a fabulous afternoon at Forsyth Humane Society on Country Club rd in Winston-Salem, NC.  They have recently taken over the Day to Day operations of Forsyth County Animal Control. With that Transition, they have started a goal of a 90% Save Rate. Nothing says more about our community, then they way we treat those below and around us. 

Here in the office, we've chosen to start this weekly even with a Very Special Senior Dog. 

Tootsie is such a sweetheart. She loves attention and short walks and has the best quirky smile! Tootsie would love nothing more than to cuddle up next to you on your couch and be your best buddy! She's been at the shelter for far longer than we'd like her to be, and I hope you can find it in your heart to visit her. Let's Find this Wonderful Senior a Loving home!

Are you Traveling this Summer???

Don't let your home safety ruin your day in the Park.

Are you joining the 40 million people this weekend for Memorial Day? Have you prepared your home to remain safe while you are away?

The New York Times has some nice ideas on how to protect your home while on vacation.

Here are some of them:

To fully enjoy your trip, plan appropriate home security and maintenance with this checklist.

Inside the house

  • Set timers on interior lights. This goes a long way in deterring burglars, who often look for crimes of opportunity. Don't allow your house to appear as if no one is home.
  • Prevent power surges. You never know if a power surge can occur, so be prepared. Disconnect the computer, TV, stereo, and other electronics, or make sure they are plugged safely into a surge protector.
  • Don't make telltale status updates. Never broadcast your location on Facebook or Twitter. Even if you think that it's only your friends or colleagues viewing your online profiles, it's safest not to leave any sort of opening for a possible burglar.
  • Alert your alarm company. If you have an automatic security system in place, call your representative, announcing you'll be away from home for an extended period of time. Make sure the alarm is set properly when you leave.
  • Secure valuables. If you don't already have your jewelry or other valuables in a safe deposit box, now might be the time to do so. Doing this also ensures that you don't leave out anything valuable in plain sight that a burglar might be able to see from a window.
  • Set the HVAC. Set a programmable thermostat to lower your heat or air conditioning usage and remember to change the thermostat's battery.
  • Protect your pipes. Make sure pipes in vulnerable areas such as attics, basements, and crawlspaces are insulated. In unusually cold weather, set your thermostat at 55 degrees or above. Ask a neighbor or trusted friend to stop by and check on the house and periodically turn on the faucets to ensure the pipes don't freeze.
  • It might seem obvious, but double-check just to be sure. Lock all doors and windows. 

Outside the house

  • Arrange for lawn care. Have your landscaping tended to by a friendly neighbor or local service. Before you leave, trim tree branches that might allow access to a climbing burglar.
  • Stop newspapers and mail. Stop mail and newspaper deliveries, or have them regularly picked up by a neighbor. Again, you don't want to easily clue in a burglar to your absence by the mounting newspapers on your doorstep.
  • Plan some exterior lighting. Set these lights on timers as well, to deter burglars.
  • Don't leave spare keys outdoors. Collect any hidden spare keys from around the exterior of your home. Remember, burglars know the most popular hiding places, like beneath mats and in potted plants.
  • Lock the garage. Even if there is no entrance to your house from the garage, there's still a chance for numerous things to be stolen. Secure the door and any entrances to the garage.
