Memorable Items Auctioned Off at M.O.I.

WILMINGTON -- After close to 50 years of serving up southern cuisine, middle of the island closed it's doors.

But Wednesday, people had a chance to get some memorabilia from the popular Wrightsville Beach restaurant.

Over 200 items were auctioned off, and everything in the restaurant was up for grabs.

Bidders were able to take home everything from coffee pots and dished, to the equipment used to cook the food.

The owner of M.O.I. said "The building was old and it was just time to close it, but for many people it will always hold a special place in their heart."

While M.O.I. is no longer at Wrightsville Beach, you can still get the popular food.

The restaurant merged with Middle Farms on College Road, and is now called Middle and Mcdaniel Farms.
