Re: “Raleigh Grande 16

OMG- Has anyone else had such an experience?
I bought tickets and dropped my teenage daughter and her friend off at the Raleigh Grande movie theatre box office early Friday evening and when I picked them up they told me they had had such a horrible experience. Apparently the movie theatre has converted their seats to assigned seating but the girl at the ticket box NEVER told us and the girls were rudely kicked out of seats twice until they figured it out but then there were people in their supposed assigned seats - front row, which they would never have picked - who wouldn't move because the theatre was oversold and they ended up having to sit on each other's lap sharing a single seat!! I was so mad I even drove back to complain and the manager said that as long as they got to see most of the movie that was good enough for him! I am so outraged and will NEVER step foot at the Raleigh Grande again! This type of arrangement is so atypical it should have been clearly advised at the box office. It was the equivalent of paying full price for squalor.

Re: “North87South

This is a unique venue. Eclectic music lovers will love this place. It's not on the beaten track but it's worth finding! The owners really know their music and book fun bands with a great vibe. BYOB.

Re: “Plan B

Finally had a chance to visit Bill's new club - FANTASTIC! In addition to the wonderful hospitality Bill and his crew give to every patron who comes through the door, the place is killer cool! Windows 360 around with some huge sky lights, great open space to enjoy music, a nice lounge area, separate pool table room toward the back, amazing patio area outside, and plenty of space at the bar. Great place to enjoy an evening and I can't wait to gig there too!

Re: “Plan B

To me, the most impressive thing about Plan B is the atmosphere and friendliness. The staff, and in my experience the clientele too, go out of their way to make everyone feel welcome. The acoustics are good, and every band I've seen play here was excellent; I'd never heard any of them before, and that implies that the bookings has a finger on the pulse of the grass roots music scene of the Triangle like no-one else. Want to see one of the best bands you've never heard of? Come here on a whim. Add to that known local favorites as well and this is a great venue. And if all you feel like is a beer or two and to hang out with friendly people (and dogs), this is a fine place for that too.

Re: “Shakori Hills

Love, love, love this place--Shakori Hills Community Arts Center is an outdoor venue that does not otherwise exist in Chatham County or the surrounding area. Its a lovely country setting on an Old Farmstead that could have easily been swallowed by development. The beautiful 72 acres are a mixture of rolling meadows and forests and are home to some magnificent old oak trees, historic farm buildings, and a community garden. Great place to convene with nature and your friends, especially when live music is involved! And camping!

Re: “The Ritz

Tickets are $40, not $26 for Col Bruce Hamton. Way overpriced for Triangle

Re: “Pittsboro Roadhouse & General Store

I usually don't take the time to post reviews, good or bad, but this place needs to be shared! I can't think of a better place I'd like to go for lunch, dinner or just about any kind of entertainment. This place has it all. It seems this place is very clean, very well managed, thought out, with a specific goal in mind. Not just providing more than exceptional food, but providing an experience. The wait staff was pleasant, efficient, and on top of everything (even with what looked to be a full house) My wife enjoyed the Gouda Mac n Cheese, I had the Blackened Chicken Alfredo, my daughter polished off a plate of angel hair pasta (she says its the sauce that makes it), and my son loved his hand battered chicken tenders. Portions are very generous and priced just right. It would be safe to say that the PBO Roadhouse isn't the cheapest place in town, but is by no means expensive. We paid exactly what I would expect to pay for what we got. This place has got it all, after looking at the entertainment lineup there, we realized this place is the place to be. Whether you like live music, (any genre, big band orchestra to AC/DC cover bands!), live theater performance, or even comedy shows, this place has it all. We will definitely be making this our regular weekly dining destination. Very much looking forward to a night out there without the kids too! Did I mention they have a HUGE dance floor and a nice bar? If you haven't been there, you need to go.....tonight, tomorrow, (heck, go tonight and tomorrow!) ,or just as soon as you can get there! You're missing out!

Re: “Joyful Jewel

The Joyful Jewel is one of two amazing art galleries in historic downtown Pittsboro, NC. Other venues in town also have art on display for for sale, Blue Dot Coffee, Angelina's Kitchen, and the Pittsboro Roadhouse's General Store, but that is not their primary business. The Joyful Jewel and Liquidamber are both in the block just north of Courthouse Circle, where most of, but not all of, the town's cool stores are. Though there are two art galleries, each is decidedly unique. Both carry items for under $5 and over $500 and every range in between.

The Joyful Jewel is owned by Mariah Wheeler, a versatile artist who works with fused glass, metals and beads creating unique necklaces, earrings, bracelets and pendants. She is also a mentor to a number of artists, and a keen supporter of the arts. The Joyful Jewel features over 160 artists from North Carolina. Photography. Pottery. Sculpture. Woodwork. Paintings. Poetry and other books by local authors. Stained Glass. Unique clothing. Art from recycled items.

For any who love to have unique and original work. For any who love color and variety, the Joyful Jewel is one of the must-visit stores of the greater Triangle area of North Carolina.

Re: “Chef's Palette Restaurant & Bar

I've been in the restaurant industry for 17 years, working at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse and after dining at Chef's Palette their service and hospitality exceeded my expectations. The Chicken Francese was totally delicious! Great place.

Re: “Sharp Nine Gallery

About Sharp Nine: Durham, NC has another "major, extraordinary" thing now that brings a date night or a family night the flavor of New Orleans, DC, NYC! Do not let Sharp Nine Gallery go another week without you checking it out! This intimate, wonderful music spot, reminds me of Snug Harbor in NOLA. Btw, You can buy a glass of wine or bottled water or BYOB. Every seat in the small house is hot!

Re: “Nicole's Studio & Art Gallery

I have some background in art, mostly figure-drawing with black chalk creating images with value. I took what was described as a beginner's painting class hoping to learn some basic concepts of combining color. My understanding is you learn by doing and exploring. Nicole was not kind nor helpful to say the very least. She is abrupt and speaks to you in a condescending manner. If you go don't make any mistakes, she will call you out and ridicule you in front of the other students. Her patience and people skills are lacking.

Re: “The Cellar

Great dive bar. Solid bartenders. If you are expecting a slightly dirty place, with pool tables and a layer of funk, you will not be disappointed. Not a top 40 kind of spot, more like a juke joint. Great place for last call or a pregame before the Cave. Very diverse crowd with lots of service folks from nearby restaurants. Also on the list for late night random stops. Speakers outside in back are a nice touch.

Re: “Katy's Music Bar

Gary lee- nothing will ever compare to the blue bayou, the atmosphere and the music. You were an excellent boss and we had a great crew. I was sad to have to go back north, and was very sad to hear the bayou closed....although you worked very hard and it was finally your turn to relax and enjoy retirement... The bayou was, by far my most favorite job......I think of you often!!!!!
