firefly...bring food! whether from home, the food trucks, our restaurant neighbors, or from our test kitchen. We're also participating in the new Green To Go initiative as a drop-off spot for containers:
Does this mean we can't bring other food into the big room?
STGMGR, dogs won't be allowed in the bar/service area, but will continue to be allowed in the unconditioned indoor/outdoor "big room." Cheers, Sean
Does this mean that dogs are no longer allowed?

I noticed a couple of stores in Raleigh still sell the Golden Ale. Can you tell me all the stores that might still carry it? I'm not much of a beer drinker but this was the best beer I've ever had.
Hey ZZ, stop trolling. Allie wasn't commissioned for this pic -- she was eating lunch at this restaurant & took a picture of her lunch. She posted it on Instagram, and the Indy thought it looked cool.
BTW, you can check out her portfolio at www.alliemullin.com, she's the real deal.
Sounds great....but the picture here by Allie Mullin, WTH?!?!!?
Why is the empty spot on the plate facing forward? It makes the plate look empty!
Why is the ketchup on the plate in the front, are they known for their ketchup in a ramkin or are we featuring the sandwich and side??
Why do you have the bun with the thumb print facing forward?? You could have simply rotated the bun so the hole doesn't show!
What a sloppy picture, take some pride in your work Allie because the one your provided here makes the plate look terrible!

Is this restaurant open now? What is the address? Can't find it on google maps.
Catherine - it isn't journalistic practice to include an entire interview in a reported piece, nor is it an obligation to include an entire email correspondence. Carolyn Twetsen responded to my questions in paragraph form, very clearly and articulately, with the understanding that I would parse it into quotes to fit the article. Instead, I decided to use the meat of the email that emphasized the angle the story took. If you would like to email me, I can in turn ask Ms. Twetsen if I can share her entire email with you. Weaver Street Market did not make a public statement such as the one Durham Co-op made (which is linked in this story and partly included in yesterday's story).
I believe the response that would cater to "affluent consumer demand" would be to only stock local or non-Driscoll berries which would be crazy expensive! Just vote with your dollars, people! It's not the store's job to dictate what people should or shouldnt buy.
Victoria, Why didn't you post the whole letter carolyn wrote? You are not reporting the story fairly or unbiastly. Catherine Manone
People who are boycotting Driscoll need to see the bigger issue here. The fact that there are labor laws in the US that allow this kind of thing to happen in the first place. If you think the issue begins and ends with Sakuma brothers, whom Driscoll buys a small portion of their berries from, then you are sadly mistaken. If you eat avocados, bananas, or really anything that didn't come from a Fair Trade Certified farm, then it was likely as cheap as it was because of unfair labor practices. When in stores I regularly hear customer complain about the high prices of produce. Terms like "Whole Paycheck" come to mind. Well if you want food grown responsibly, by workers who are treated fairly, then be willing to pay the price for it. Unfortunately we have a very broken system, where underpaid people need cheap food to survive on, which is made cheap because they were produced or harvested by underpaid people. So stop focusing on the small issue, and start doing something about the larger problem!
Sorry I missed this. I worked 13 years part-time in pastry production at NSB and knew Jacqueline then (1985-1998). I see her once a year when I get hot cross buns for my choir and neighbors on Good Friday. She is such a special soul!
Any time a business owner (who decides to close up shop that quickly) first blames the former business and customers for their lack of business...and any time a restaurant/bar owner sees it as a "concept" rather than something they love and want to share with others--you know there's a problem. Hadleys has failed because the owners are after a concept and after fast money on the backs of the "new hipster-foodie crowd" rather than loyal locals and others. It also appears as if they screwed over the former server staff and crew for no apparent reason.
As a former server and as one who watched my dad build extremely successful restaurants on high quality, fantastic food (at reasonable prices that weren't jacked up) and developing relationships with the locals, I find it really disingenuous (or maybe just ignorant) of the owners of Hadleys to say they failed because the locals were mad they lost the former place. Get over yourselves - stop CONCEPTUALIZING and start developing good food (reasonably priced) and drinks, as well as building relationships. Then maybe you won't have to move on quite as fast.
When the new place opened up it went from fun local gay friendly hangout (with beer) to yuppie/hipster cocktail bar (with no beer and overpriced sandwiches), which had zero appeal. It wasn't a loyalty thing (as the new owner suggests), it just wasn't the same, or anywhere close to being the same. Seriously, did they really think after changing everything about the bar/restaurant that they would automatically keep all of the patrons based on the location? If you closed down a steakhouse and replaced it with a vegetarian restaurant, would you expect the same clientele?
I'm surprised they didn't just tweak the first concept more and listen to customer feedback. Also, we all knew that the regular staff of the Borough were interested and then not contacted to work there. Which was lame. This is kind of a bummer. But maybe it will have a happier ending.
They spelled lease wrong in the listing.
