One of the best places to hangout in Carrboro. They have a nice selection of good beer and of course PBR. When we went there was a taco truck in the parking lot and a small amount of sandwiches and burritos inside. The best part is the large outdoor space.
Yes, it's just like you describe. Eco-friendly meets shabby chic. I went to a wine class there last week. We sipped wine and learned how grapes are farmed biodynamicly and made into lovely wine. April knows her stuff. There is a special shopping center wide open house tonight. Music and samples. It will be warm but Sip...a wine store is cool in many ways.
We stumbled upon this event last summer and had a blast. Been back 3 or 4 times now. If you have never been, Southern Rail has a cool, retro flea market kind of feel - in a good way. The dj plays all reggae and some of the best stuff I have ever heard. The place is usually pretty packed on this night, but its a friendly enough crowd. The only bad part was that it sometimes took a while to get a drink.
This show on Friday, July 16, 2010 at Walnut Creek was a head and shoulders above the show at the Greensboro Coliseum this spring, which was as bad as what I imagine a Brittany Spears show would be like. It is still not up to par compared to the four previous years. The only parts that were lacking had something to do with the last album, especially the entire last song and the contrived / pretentious video montage.
Aside from the show, I would like to NOT apologize to the group of people that I cussed out. They would be the group including the old guy who poked me in the back with his umbrella, and the lady behind him who told me to “sit down” to which I replied “$%@# OFF”. My reply was not just directed at you spokes-lady. It was directed at the whole lazy, clueless group of you who come to a blues rock concert and expect everyone in front of you to sit down so that you can see.
If you must be that lazy, then you can not be that cheap and expect satisfaction. Buy yourself a vip box on the front and quit complaining that someone in front of you is dancing to music.
I posted the last review and had to come back here to update-
Brought my sister once again and my husband and we had a GREAT time! The food was once again spectacular and the service was just as pleasant. The iced tea is amazing as was the gyro. Last time I had falafel which was just as good.
It's definitely worth a trip out to cary to visit this locally owned eatery!
I brought 3 of my pets to Southpoint Animal Hospital and received stellar service at extremley reasonable prices. They have the most inviting relaxing veterinary hospital I have ever experienced. It truly is the ulimate experience. The attentive team made me feel right at home and part of their family. I was educated by Dr. Lapham and Dr. Farling that they create choices for pet owners by providing traditional medicine expertise with alternative services as well. It is refreshing to walk into a veterinary hospital, be offered beverages, get greeted with a handshake, and not pay an arm and a leg for vet services. We are lucky to have such a wonderful and progressive (environmentally friendly) veterinary hospital in Durham!
This is the best Chinese Restaurant in Chapel Hill. They have 2 menus, try the Chinese menu...you won't be disappointed.
I used to live in Trappers Run which is next to the Park in Cary. Great family park with everything in one place from the small fishing and boating lake to a small, well designed playground for tots
Baseball fields and a fitness path for all ages. Shelter for rent for community events. It's all available through the Cary Parks and Rec Dept. Check it out.
Absolutely outstanding authentic Mediterranean restaurant! Fresh, natural ingredients. Food prepared from scratch.
Friendly and helpful staff.
I will be back again and again... It surpassed my expectations.
Try it! You will not be dissapointed.
Perched is a really cool arts space run by Paige Travis. Check it out if you have a chance. they have a lot of cool events going on, teach individuals lessons, show local artists work and offer classes and seminars to the public.
Jon Sands is awesome. He is a highly entertaining performer and quite funny. Truely this is not to be missed. I have seen him perform over the last 3 years and I am astonished at how groovey this man is. Check him out if you can.

Capital Cabaret. FB friend them, Grayson! Also, I'll take Teasers. They know me there.
First, kudos on the handle. I am picking up what you are putting down—metaphorically, at least.
Second, what can you tell me about this "new club by the airport"?
Talk about a crock..best looking girls are at the new club by the airport without a doubt and you don't get forced to buy a stupid shirt every hour hour on the hour either.
Just moved my sister and her friend into Cary last week and wanted to check out the local spots. We walked in and were looking at menus when a woman came up to us and said if we were staying to sit down and if not to leave. We took a table and discussed whether or not we wanted to stay after such a greeting and decided to give it a chance. She was obviously upset as she started yelling at a crew working next door in front of us. We finished our waters before the food came and she NEVER gave us any more so we all drank the tea two of us had ordered. The food was GREAT! The service had better be a LOT better next time or I will never go again. Maybe she was just having a bad day but not good to pass that on to your customers. Especially when it's their first time there.
Perfect summer night in Chatham County. Good music, good food, Clyde Jones art, and a cool old store.
Amazing restaurant. The decor is comfortably classy and the food is delicious. They serve you just the right portions of meals, providing you with the greatest flavor combinations you never thought of. Try anything and everything-- it is all delightful. Best falafel I have ever had. It is fairly expensive, but well worth it. If you are looking for a unique taste that will knock your socks off-- go here.
Location is great, particularly outdoors which isn't as noisy (overloud music) as indoors.
Food (lunch) tasted good but:....
Cuban sandwich was priced OK but was small in size. Rice and beans with platanos sampler dinner was OK but overpriced ($10.50) for a small bowl and four small platanos.
Beer was very reasonably priced at $3.00 but wine and mixed drink menu had no prices! According to waitress, mixed drinks were $5-8 and bottles of wine $18-24 but who knows what price each item is (very odd).
Queen of Sheba is fantastic! I love the fact that there's something for everyone there - vegetarian dishes, vegan dishes, spicy food, and mild food (i.e. very flavorful but not at all spicy). I've been able to take groups of people to the restaurant and everyone has loved it. And the quality of the beef, lamb, and chicken is excellent - it's great the restaurant supports local farms!
Loved the food - Chicken Tibbs so flavorful but not too spicy. Also liked the fact that the owner buys all her beef/chicken from local farms and that the meat is anti-biotic-free, beef is grass fed.
We ate very early: 5:30 pm 2 Friday nights ago.
Injera is totally delicious and nutritious. My friend's kids loved the food here, too. Couldn' t believe her otherwise picky 13 year old gobbled up the veggies on the platter and some of the shrimp dish! Her other daughter asked for a fork to eat (graciously provided by server) but the rest of us ate the traditional way - with our hands. By the time we left, the place was packed with patrons. Check this place out!
