‘DITTO’: Wrightsville Beach bars having fun with holiday lights


WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WWAY) — A couple of bars in Wrightsville Beach are getting lots of attention for their holiday lights.

If you’ve been to the island lately you have probably seen King Neptune restaurant and bar literally decked out in thousands of lights. Now a neighboring bar is stringing some up, too.

The owner said it all started with one of the servers asking if he could put some lights up a few weeks ago, but he came back with way more than anyone expected.

Then this week, Red Dogs and Jimmy’s next door decided to string up a sign saying “Ditto” and it seems to be a big hit.

“Personally, and I guess everybody else I can speak for, we all think it’s hilarious. It’s a great joke. We always like to have a great time down here, and it definitely brings everything to life,” server Kathryn Banks said. “People that come by, as well as customers, all get a kick out of it. They love it. I think it just brings a smile to everyone’s faces, as well.”

You will find lights inside and out, and there’s even matching music to go with them.
