Re: “Fullsteam

Great, inventive beer styles, though likely to be different from what you're used to. The tavern is a fun post-industrial space complete with a good juke box, pinball, and ping pong. They've upped the food options recently, but you can still bring in your own food or get it delivered, which makes it almost like an indoor beer garden.

Re: “Sertoma Arts Center

Great spaces for a variety of art exhibits, including the large Raleigh Room, hallway, and display cases for 3-D work. Classes are offered in a good range of disciplines, for all ages.

Re: “Raleigh City Plaza

Awesome to the bone! We all got lucky , it was warm with no rain (!) or snow! First Night Raleigh was a fantastic melee of music , magic and people-hood. The Celebration of hope began with all day kid activities and makings, joyously , the People's Procession was drummed and piped along with the magnificent spirits created by Paper-hand Puppet Intervention worn carried and inhabited people by all ages . Taking to the streets with earth and the heavens represented is a meaningful community piece, how often do you show your life power and share it with your whole town? The tons of events from Baba Chuck Davis's Dance ensemble to ballroom at the Sir Walter Raleigh comedy , allll kinds of music , it was fantastic. The bands in City Plaza were ripping full of energy giving their all till the acorn ball dropped ( not once but twice, and fireworks x2 were supreme. For what ever first night has or hasn't been in the past, last night it was shining and wonderful. Getting people out, together , to ring in a new year is hope in hand. Making the message last beyond one night's party, might be a miracle, here's to a "new" year! We are banded together!

Re: “Revolution

I went there for the lunch counter specials. I was very well impressed by the food I ate that day. I'll be back with my wife.

Jack Sprat has great food at reasonable prices. Their potato salad is some of the best I have ever had, and the sandwiches and appetizers are really good, too, especially for the price. The staff that we have dealt with have always been helpful and friendly.

Wow this place is great. i had so much fun at Bio Ritmo and then Hotclub of Cowtown last weekend. Amazing sound, lights and libations. I danced all night for two nights in a row. Incredibly 9th wonder performed after Hotclub of Cowtown. I was starting to think I would never leave.

Re: “Southland Ballroom

Went to see the Chip Robinson benefit at Southland. All I can say is amazing place to see live bands! Finally someone was thinking. Every spot in the entire place offers excellent view and incredible sound. The bar is big, got my beers fast, good selection and pricing. The nicest bathrooms I have ever seen in rock club. I will be back!

Re: “The Pig

My God, this is a fabulous restaurant. My grandmother sent me a clipping from the NYTimes Magazine about it, and so my husband and I checked it out tonight: tamales with delicious side salad, BBQ plate, collards, pickles, ham plate, fried green tomatoes. A beautiful presentation and everything was delicious! Very friendly staff. Will return many times! I would suggest getting there early - they had run out of pork ribs and most pies by 7pm on Friday night.

Re: “Kerry Catherine Jewelry

Kerry Catherine ~

Thank you so much for the pictures J Received your separate email with the additional shot as well. I immediately forwarded them to my daughter (she lives in Atlanta). She responded back raving about it! And the ultimate compliment to your talent, she also said that the ring is so me! I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your ability to take the thoughts & feel I had in my head and transform them into such a beautiful piece of art.

I would love to see any cuff bracelets you design along this line. My husband said that he would be happy for me to share them with him too! I think sometimes he struggles to capture my taste, but he wants to very much! He’s always very happy when I find something I really like.

It was fun for me to work with you on this project. You are such a wonderful & gifted artisan. Your spirit & ideas just flow! Thank you for sharing that gift. I’ll keep your husband in my prayers. I hope his procedure is a success.

Your very happy customer ~

Kathy

Re: “Memorial Auditorium

I had the pleasure of seeing this production twice— once in NYC at the Westside Theatre/Upstairs, and again this past weekend in the Raleigh Memorial Theater production. Both productions were excellent, though venues are vastly different and, due to circumstances of the day, the Screwtape character was played by different actors in each one. Steven Hauck's (Max McLean's understudy) presentation in the July 4th NYC version was wicked and deliciously evil, fun, and intimate, which is the nature of the Westside Theatre. For this kind of show, theater in the small(-ish) is superb. But Max McLean's performance at the vastly larger and less intimate Raleigh Memorial carried all the necessary energy to reach out into the bigger venue. Still, I am glad of being seated relatively close to the performers. I am biased in thinking that distance may diminish some of the really fun visual impact of the piece, the impact that comes from seeing facial expressions along with the changes in mood, tempo, lighting, and body postures and attitudues—that constitute the main 'action' in this show. I would definitely see it again, a few more times. Very glad it came to Raleigh.

Re: “Kim Son Vietnamese Restaurant

Kim Son has been our favorite "comfort food" spot for years, and it just keeps getting better. It's a family owned-business and the food is consistently fresh and delicious. The place is spotless, warm and cheery with a bit of a diner quality. But it also exudes a subtle French and Asian Vietnamese ambiance, from the delicate lace tablecloths and curtains to the subtropical flowers and bamboo lantern sconces. Every dish is beautifully presented and many are accompanied by fresh plates of crisp lettuce, julienned carrots and turnips, perfect bean sprouts, slices of lime, and large sprigs of Vietnamese basil. These get added by the diner to various soups and other dishes. One of the standards on the menu is a very good selection of pho or noodle soup (12 kinds on the menu - my favorite is pho tai with rare roast beef) . There are big selections of other dishes served with rice, vermicelli, or fried rice. An entire section of the menu is devoted to bamboo steamer meals. And there are 15 house specialties on the menu. My favorites are the dishes that come with skewers of grilled meat or shrimp wrapped around sugar cane, plates of vermicelli and vegetables, and a pile of super-thin rice paper that the eater dips into a hot bowl of water at the table and then fills with the other ingredients to construct spring rolls. Another unexpected pleasure is the special #40, fresh thick rice noodles that look like small accordion-folded clouds, arranged on a plate with crisp fried tofu,rich bean cakes, piles of salad veggies and a special ginger sauce. For the sweet tooth, there are about 30 flavors of bubble tea (total fun!) and the desserts are homemade. They brought us a free piece of coconut flan pie last time we ate there. Most of the dishes on the menu are under $10 and portions are very generous. There's beer and wine, too. And once you've been there, when you return you're welcomed like family.
