i'm hosting a weekend at carolina beach for a friend's bachelorette party. we plan to drive into wilmington on a saturday night for a nice dinner and some good old-fashioned carousing.
what are some good restaurants downtown that would be in close proximity to a few fun bars? we're a pretty laid-back bunch, we're just looking for good food and a little atmosphere. most any kind of cuisine is ok, as long as the wine and/or martinis are good.
any recommendations? recs for the drinking part of the night are more than welcome as well :)
