Bucket List Item Number 10: Eat lunch at the counter of Sutton’s Drug Store
While I was taking pictures to accompany this post, I was stopped by a fellow student walking down Franklin Street. He asked me why I was taking pictures and when I mentioned the UNC Bucket List and the fact that I myself had never eaten at Sutton’s Drug Store, he looked shocked and said, “Sutton’s is great! I eat lunch here at least once a week. You gotta try it.”
I realized then why eating lunch at Sutton’s Drug Store had made the bucket list in the first place.
I enjoyed my patty melt while looking at all of the pictures of people on the walls and the UNC jerseys hanging from the ceiling, and I was filled with a sense of pride at being a small part of the UNC community.
Sutton’s Drug Store is a preserved piece of UNC history and is truly “a Carolina tradition since 1923.”
