I will preface this by saying the 15 minutes I spent in Bacchus Wine and Cheese was not bad, just incredibly awkward.
Myself and eight friends came to the Outerbanks on vacation and all in our mid-twenties we planned on drinking....a lot. Also, in our mid-twenties we are poor. That being said, my friend and I drove in a separate car down and decided to get the first two nights worth of alcohol including three bottles of champagne as kind of "hooray to us" for planning our first large vacation.
The only place we were close to was Bacchus' so my friend and I went in and there was no one in there so it was easy to walk around, then a man walked up to us and asked if we were looking for anything in particular. I just said 'champagne' because I don't know the difference anyways, i'll drink anything. He first showed us their top shelf champagne (think Cristal) which was upwards of $250 a bottle. Not what we were looking for. He implied that we were celebrating something (thinking we were gay) and it wouldn't have been unsettling if the other staff didn't look over at that very moment. Perhaps they saw senses the awkwardness.
After conveying that we were poor he told us where their 'bottom shelf' champagne was and shuffled off, kind of rude in my opinion. But hey, we got champagne, and everyone in our group drank it on the beach at sunset. We still won you confused old man!
