THE ORIGINAL RELOCATION GUIDE — FAYETTEVILLE | FORT BRAGG | SANDHILLS REGION VOLUME 8 — ISSUE 2 22 FAYETTEVILLE/CUMBERLAND COUNTY Sherefe menu highlights include fresh-made hum- mus, an eggplant pizza with a Greek salad on top, and a memorable lamb shank with rosemary. Visiting Fort Bragg dignitaries often find their way to the Mediterra- nean jewel. Antonella's Italian Ristorante has earned rave reviews in the short time it has been open. Dishes are delicious starting with the Calamari appetizer. Try the pear martini afterwards for a liquid dessert. At Baby Garlic Bistro expe- rience exceptional foods. Don't leave without sampling the smoked eggplant hummus. Burger warfare is on in the "All America City." Throughout the county burger joints show off burg- ers dressed up with extras like fried eggs, avocados and more, and piled high with the regular suspects – pickles, lettuce, onions and cheese. At Robin's on Main (Hope Mills) you can get a Big Papa Burger with giant onion rings in the quaint diner. Try a cheeseburger all the way at the old fashioned Stedman's Soda Shop in Stedman. In the town of Eastover, have a cheeseburger with a side of chili fries at The Corner Grill. The People's Choice is the R Burger. Try their Southern Burger—a rich combo of house-made pimento cheese, grilled onion and mus- tard or the Egg Burger, created especially for the Dirtbag Ales Farmers Market. For a sweet tooth fix stop into Burney's Sweets & More for cookies, croissants, and more. A "must try" is the home made Twinkie, not like the commercial one that comes wrapped in plastic and cardboard. Then there is Fayette- ville Pie Company, voted best in North Carolina by Tasting Table.com. Where there's good food, a thriving beverage scene follows. Breweries are setting down roots in the county with more openings planned. Two breweries to experience are Dirt Bag Ales (Hope Mills) and Lake Gaston Brewing Company (Fayetteville). Lake Gaston Brewing is the result of the talents of former paratrooper (82nd Airborne Divi- sion) Darrin Jones, and Green Beret Troy Rasmussen. For North Carolina Beer Month, Fayetteville launched the Hometown Hops Beer Trail that guides users to five local breweries (www.visitfayettevillenc.com/hometownhops/).

The Houston Astros attended the ground breaking ceremony for the new downtown baseball stadium, the future home of the Houston Astros High A affiliate in the Carolina League.
