Re: “Alivia's Durham Bistro

DJ Junior is incredible. I've seen him spin at Elvisfest and Heavy Rebel. He spins an eclectic mix of 50's 60's Rock/Rockabilly. Looking forward to this show!

Re: “Broad Street Cafe

To those of you who experienced slow service back in September... we have been working very hard the past few months to improve service so that every experience at the Cafe is a good one.

Service hours are posted on the web site.

Re: “La Farm Bakery

Great croque madame, great service. Nice little side spots to sit, away from the buzzing crowd that encircles this place every weekend, with good reason.

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!

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.

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: “Katy's Music Bar

Are you looking for fun??? Katy's is a great place for fun. Good music and friendly people. No one is a stranger here. Like to dance? Put your dancing shoes on because you won't be sitting.
I went there my first time and had a great time will be returning when ever possible.
