MiCasa ON MAIN located in Mt. Airy NC Catering trends change as fast as wedding dress styles. Cakes have gone from monstrous creations stacked feet high with columns, to simple affairs adorned with fresh flowers, and even to "naked cakes" with minimal icing and fresh fruit. Food options have undergone changes as well, long gone are the days of dry chicken and under seasoned vegetables. Today's couples have endless choices when it comes to feeding their guests, from creative cocktail hours to hiring food trucks to serve the couple's favorite burger creations. More couples are talking to their favorite locally based restaurants when considering their big day. Local restaurants are more likely to offer not only fresh and creative options, but also to work with you and your partner to prepare a specialty dish that expresses your favorite flavors while showcasing the talent and artistry of the restaurant. One fun option is to offer your guests something unique, yet flavorful and expertly crafted. Thinking outside of the typical wedding food palate, and exploring interesting cuisine is a forward thinking and delicious way to appease hungry guests. One local restaurant is paving the way for flavorful, fun, and fresh cuisine. Mi Casa on Main, conveniently located on Main Street in Mount Airy North Carolina, serves up delicious tacos, tapas, and cocktails to visitors and locals alike. They also have awesome catering options like taco bars, premade dishes, and creative salad options. Delicious options abound when choosing Mi Casa. Those who enjoy the classic pairing of sweet and savory can choose Al Pastor which combines thinly sliced marinated pork with grilled pineapple. More traditional choices, such as grilled chicken, steak, or pulled pork, are given the same attention to detail and flavor, and are sure to please. Couples who simply want to offer a creative cocktail hour are covered with Mi Casa as well. As part of their catering services, Mi Casa can offer any of their amazing cocktails, hand crafted for your guests by one of their sta ffmixologists. Those looking for a hearty pre-reception snack can choose from perfectly seasoned and grilled Mexican street corn, or light and crispy chips with any one of Mi Casa's four salsas, or everyone's favorite chip pairing, creamy queso. When exploring your options for catering, consider something new, something fresh, and most importantly, something that is sure to make old and new family alike feel at home. Mi Casa on Main, where Mi Casa, es su casa.

King of the Rails- Trail the History of Railroads & Model Railroading In King North Carolina, David Eriksen and Steve Buchenauer have been busy building a model train layout that will attract kids.“We spent more than 350 hours working on it,” Eriksen said. “My favorite part is the most difficult part, the river. We did the river four times.”

By: Chad Tucker

He and Buchenauer set up the model inside the storefront of Gullions Christian Supply Store on South Main Street. The store gave them the space for free. But it was a labor of love for he and Buchenauer. “I always loved the history of the railroad,” said Buchenauer, who installed several switches that will allow children to interact with the model. “The scenery is really my favorite part.” The model, which includes familiar replicas of local places, is all in hopes of inspiring future railroaders.“Hopefully more people will fall in love with this hobby,” said Eriksen, who hopes this will be the first of many more layouts. “It's called ‘Hand to Rails Trail’ and we hope to have models in Mount Airy, Pilot Mountain and Elkin.” The trail is in an area that was once served by a common railroad but instead of freight, this new model line will carry imagination.
