Hope ya'll don't mind me tacking on to this thread.
I've got a three-day trip to NC coming up:
- Day One in Hickory with SAD colleagues who have decided we are eating at Red Lobster (ugh)
- Day Two in a tiny town called Kannapolis, on my own but I'll be working like crazy and probably no time to eat out (there is one veg-friendly restaurant listed on HappyCow but they are only open for lunch).
- Day Three taking a bunch of kids to an amusement park in Charlotte called Carowinds, which does not permit you to bring in food.
I'm staying in a hotel that claims to have a microwave and minifridge in the room, but I don't have a way to bring perishable food with me, other than what I can pack in a lunch bag for the first day (sorry, if they can't handle me eating my own food at Red Lobster, I'll eat in the car
There's no Whole Foods in the area, just an EarthFare and if they are like the others I've visited, EVERYthing is cooked with "heart healthy olive oil
Anybody familiar with the area have suggestions?
