Waitress at Pub71 viewsThe only thing open on our first night at the hour we chose to dine was a pub. Here is a waitress picture from the pub. Later, we determined empirically that Blowing Rock is not a great spot for nightlife. Everything except for two bars, a convenience store, and an ice cream parlor closes at 9 PM--even on weekends!
