MINUTES FROM THE SEPTEMBER MEETING
Nineteen people attended the October meeting held at Brunson Elementary School
cafeteria.
Officer Bryant with the Winston-Salem Police Department reported that 2
additional bicycle officers will begin patrolling an expanded area in the
Hanes Park area. You can contact the Bike Patrol Office at 727-2177.
Members voted on a resolution thanking the City of Winston-Salem and other
groups for their offer to install the Historic Signs in the West End.
Mike Prince, owner of the Burke Street Pub, spoke to our group about his
efforts and ideas concerning the problem some West End residents are having
during and after hours from some patrons of the bars on Burke St. He
stated his willingness to work with other bar owners and the West End
Association to resolve these issues. A Liaison Committee was formed to work
with the Burke Street bar owners. The committee members are: Keith &
Felice Avery (chairpersons), John Hauser, Nick Kefal and Warren Sparrow.
The next West End Association meeting will be at Brunson Elementary School
cafeteria on October 5 from 7:00 PM to 8:45 PM. Everyone in the West End is

EDITOR NOTES
After the September meeting, some of the West End members and I adjourned to
the newest restaurant in the West End - the 4th Street Filling Station located
at the corner of 4th Street and Brookstown Avenue, the old Shob
ers. Owner Fred Vlasis has remodeled an old favorite and kept much of the
former charm. The outside courtyard, which is handicapped accessible, has
some new plantings and unique dyed concrete patio. The interior dini
ng area has been enlarged and is perfect for those looking for a more intimate
dining experience.
The menu touches on flavors from around the globe - Caribbean, Italian, Thai,
Greek, Chinese It also has traditional favorites such as philly steak,
buffalo wings and grilled salmon. We started with the Crabmeat Wonto
ns. The crabmeat stuffing is homemade - light with a delicate creamy base.
The tasty wonton shell was crispy and very fresh. Sweet-and-sour and
horseradish sauces accompanied the wontons, both were excellent.
Next were the salads, Fried Oyster Salad, Spinach Salad and a Garden Salad.
All were plentiful with a wide variety of greens. The fried oysters were
lightly breaded and very good. The spinach salad had homemade crou
tons that really added to this classic favorite. However, the vinaigrette
salad dressing could use a little more stirring.
The entrees were an interesting mix - I chose the Shrimp Mediterranean. A
delightful medley of sautéed shrimp with fresh tomatoes, onions and garlic
tossed with fetuccine and garnished with feta cheese. If you love
pasta with seafood - this is a real gem!
Others had the Quatro Formaggi Pizza - a 4 cheese masterpiece with a light
garlic marina the sauce. Another excellent pizza was the Caribbean Chicken
Pizza with jerk seasoned chicken, red onions, hot peppers and fresh
cilantro. Both had homemade crusts that were top notch in flavor and texture.
The nachos, which were an appetizer, really qualified as an entree in size.
Chips of all colors were smothered in a unusual chili, cheese
and jalepeños mix with sour cream and salsa.
Finally - dessert. I had a piece of carrot cake that rivaled the Midtown
Dessertery - a personal favorite. In all, the food and service were excellent
and the prices very reasonable. I give the 4th Street Filling Sta
tion - 4 stars (out of 5). See you there!
