One and one-half miles from our house sits this unique little bar – right along the airstrip –
of Ocean Isle Beach airport.
CHUBBY BUDDHA is the name – I have no idea why it is called that!
In N.C. if you do not sell food – you are considered a private bar –
so, therefore – when you come in – there is a terminal – you put your information in –
get a coded password( your telephone number) and pay the grand sum of ONE DOLLAR-
and you are a member for the year!
Most beers are $3.00 – except the IPA which we do not drink nor do I drink the draft there.
Those all cost more.
But it is a fun little hangout – no one bothers you – and you can ask for what game you want to watch
on one of the many TVs on the walls.
The bar itself is U-shaped – there are two rooms and big outdoor seating – some of it covered.
We go with neighborhood friends – mainly because it is only a short distance from the house.
I like local bars where all the locals go! If you are ever here with us – then we just might take you here.
