There’s obviously a lot going on in Arlington Place right now, but let’s head down the street 10 miles to Oriental and check out the cool new places that have opened their doors this summer.  Oriental is a vibrant little sailing town, the Sailing Capital of the state actually, that is full of history, mom and pop shops, boats, and a water-loving cast of characters!  And we now have three new joints to grab a bite to eat in town and….wait for it…… the piece de resistance, the new Piggly Wiggly grocery store, appropriately named “The Piglet”.

A shout out and big congrats to the new owner of The Piglet (and Arlington Place owner) Billy Flockhart who has been working like crazy prepping his store for last week’s grand opening!  Looks like the hard work has paid off in a big way.

The Piglet joins eateries O’Town, Buena Vida, and Oriental Deil & Subs, all new restaurants that recently opened giving locals and visitors more delicious dining options!  Looks like O’Town is spicing up Sunday brunch, check out that Bloody Mary……..
