I'd imagine that Snappy Lunch puts out a good breakfast, and might even make a real nice livermush sandwich the way it had ought to be done.
Snappy Lunch is one of those institutions that will pass to someone else who cares enough to keep it alive and like it is. I would bet its demise is not for the foreseeable future... even if the M. & M. Sandwich Shop in Davidson, N. C. did close when Murray died and Mary retired, the Snappy will continue to snap on indefinitely.
Similar to a radio station in Mount Airy - WPAQ-AM, 740 on the dial. The format has been strictly traditional country and bluegrass, with even some old-time music since it began. A fellow named Epperson has owned the station ever since it went on the air in 1947, and - last time I checked - was still there, hosting programs and working on the air, well into his 80's. The other local station is almost as venerable.
And, speaking of "food towns," lovely Toast, N. C. is right down the road.
