On Saturday May 7th we have a planned a great day of driving, museum visit and a final stop at a bracket winning Barbeque Eatery in Shelby NC.
Because of the popularity of the Red Bridges BBQ Lodge and limited parkinfg we have decided to not arrive before 2:00pm. Plese make snack plans accordingly. The start will be at the Carolina Moon Cafe in Lake Lure. Please arrive no later than 10:30 so that you have time to sign the release form and socialize. They have coffee and snacks available with overfow parking at the Visitor Center next door. Departure time will be 11:30 with a short 45 minute drive to the Bennett Classics and Antique Auto Museum in Forest City, NC. A one hour stop ($8.00 per person) and then we are off to Red Bridges BBQ in Shelby for some award winng chopped BBQ! Arriving there just after 2:00 pm should eliminate the crowds.
