Shake off the OBX winter blues

By on January 25, 2013

The new owners of The Flying Fish Café, Bobby and Tiffany Starkey are looking to provide locals with a respite from the winter doldrums.

This Saturday the Flying Fish Café will feature an “adult night out” to break those winter blues.

The event will be wine tasting featuring the reds, whites and sparklers from across Italy. Heavy hors d’oeuvres and music by Mojo Collins is also on tap.

It’s winter on the Outer Banks, and with so many venues closed it can be hard to find things to do at night and on weekends.

So the Voice is making an offer to local businesses: if you are sponsoring a special event or service that is out of the ordinary for you, send us the info.

The fun starts at 6:30 and reservations, details and pricing can be obtained by calling the Flying Fish Café at 252-441-6894.

If the event is successful, more wine tastings from other regions of the world will follow for the remainder of the off-season.


Giving old photos a facelift

Photography studios on the beach make their living from weddings and family portraits of our visitors.

But the winter can be a slow time for photographers and locals.

J. Aaron Trotman Photgraphs has a way for you to make productive use of those cold, windy winter weekends when you are trapped in the house: Preserving old photos and memories in digital form.

You may have some photos of those folks closest to you that have been damaged over the years. Some may be saved and restored.

For a limited time J. Aaron Trotman Photographs will be offering scanning and retouching services for your old photographs to CD. No worries about having to ship these priceless heirlooms out to some mystery lab. Your images will stay safe in his Outer Banks studio.

Call (252) 480-1070 for an estimate on your project. This service is limited to the off-season.
