Hurricane Florence Shuts Down Tackle Box Tavern for the First Time

Tackle Box Tavern

In the 11 years since Janice Bynum has owned The Tackle Box Tavern, it has never been closed for a full day, so long as she could remember.

“Christmas, Thanksgiving, everything,” she said, thinking of how the tavern has been open on those days, and every other day, even during other storms.

She thought about that Wednesday, while she and her fiance, Richard Porter, dragged bags of ice out of the outside freezer, and rearranged sand bags around doors that had been boarded shut.
