In 1964, brothers Leroy and Forrest Raffel banded together to come up with a new restaurant concept. Arby's took off almost immediately on the coattails of its hallmark roast-beef sandwich and the founders’ idea of providing customers with fast, quality food. Over the company's 48-year franchise history, its foundational pièce de résistance of thinly sliced, juicy beef has been served in a many permutations, and continues to be popular today, served at more than 3,500 stores in North America. Today’s menu still ignites appetites with traditional beef sandwiches, plus hot and seasoned curly fries, fresh-chopped salads, and desserts good for richly capping off meals or bribing any bridge trolls on the way home.

National Golf Club is the result of a collaboration nearly 20 million years in the making. Ancient oceans sculpted the terrain's hills and made it suitable for longleaf and southern pines to grow high. Then golf legend Jack Nicklaus swooped in to lend his expertise. He designed each hole, doglegging his signature wide fairways toward fast, undulating greens of bent grass. Then there?s the water. Four lakes toy with golfers on all but a handful of holes, testing their accuracy and tact as they flirt with disaster.
Perhaps most notable is the par-4, 439-yard fifth hole. Following a blind drive, players test their technical savvy with a downhill approach toward a rocky creek and a 5-foot hand-stacked stone wall. A short shot could mean a bogey, or worse, a swim. Nicklaus?s design rewards the risk taker, though?a backstop behind the green gives long shots a helping hand, rolling them back toward the hole.
Course at a Glance:
18-hole, par-72 course
Total length of 7,122 yards from the back tees
Course rating of 75.5 from the back tees
Slope rating of 138 from the back tees
Four sets of tees per hole
The baristas at The Village Coffee House & Bakery source their beans from area roasters, supporting Fayetteville's economy while also ensuring that each cup of java has a rich, fresh taste. They also serve up shakes, smoothies, teas from Republic of Tea, and Italian sodas, which pair well with daily-baked pastries, including danishes, scones, and muffins. But perhaps the star of the bakery is their intricately decorated cakes. The bakers create custom-designed masterpieces for birthdays?which might feature the child's favorite cartoon character or professional chess player?weddings, and other special events.
Railhouse Brewery founders Mike Ratkowski and Brian Evitts both did stints in the armed forces before they met while working the same job. The two shared an interest in the effervescent qualities of a good beer, and in 2009, they turned that passion into a business. Brian, a homebrewer for 20 years, oversees the production of the company's five main beers?oatmeal stout, brown ale, pale ale, honey wheat, and barley wine?and Mike handles operations, sales, and the number of bottles of beer on the wall. Together, they help bring Railhouse brews to 14 restaurants and bars in the Sandhills.
The Railhouse Brewery also frequently hosts concerts and festivals, and holds cornhole tournaments every Thursday from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. For more information, check out the event page or send a pack of investigative hops to visit the brewery.
