Re: “Paperhand Puppet Intervention’s The Beautiful Beast Makes Merry With Monsters of Myth and Memory

I saw this show in Chapel Hills. This was the first time I had seen a Paperhand's show. It was magnificent. The music produced and performed by Jennifer Curtis and the band took it beyond the next level.

I loved this performance. It was dark, very funny and incredibly entertaining.

Re: “Where to Find Black-Owned Restaurants in The Triangle

Watkins Grill is not black-owned; neither is the Barbecue Lodge. Apparently, the Indy reporter didn't do her homework.

Re: “Wake County Judge Michael Denning: 'China Wouldn't Be So Bad If It Weren't for All the Chinese'

Judge Michael Denning is the worst Judge. Not only does he do favors for his friends, he stated the discriminatory comment of "China wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for all the Chinese." How stupid does he think the people of NC are that they would ever want this clown in the Superior Court. He supports the horrible HB2 and has fundraisers with that loser McCrory. NC deserves good judges and fair judges. Judge Michael Denning needs to be impeached ASAP!!!

Re: “Golden Belt Granted a Historic Designation over the Durham Rescue Mission’s Objections

After listening to all the proponents and opponents of the DRM's plans, I still don't understand why the Council (under pressure by Preservation) could not have let the DRM have their lots to do what they wanted. They could easily have been excluded from the historic districting. It appears that many "newcomers" to the community have decided they don't want the "likes" of the people that use the Mission around their "neighborhood". For all the newbies, who was there first? The fact that property values are increasing anyway is not conducive to "affordable" housing as Preservation touts. Also, this is a high crime-ridden area (reason for the Mission being there in the first place), so maybe cleaning up the neighborhood before blaming the Mission's people would be a better start.

Re: “Koumi’s Fish Sauce Wings Soar Above the Usual Hibachi Fare

I _love_ this place -- great food and very good service!

I know the building was an Italian restaurant before it was Koumi. Don't know if any fast food places had been in it, but I wouldn't doubt it.

Re: “Uber Really, Really Doesn’t Pay Very Well, According to a Lawsuit Filed in North Carolina

The problem that I see with this is that he is deducting things against his wage that aren't straight deductions. Like car lease. He is going to have that no matter what job he has. We all do. I don't deduct my car payments from my income and then complain that my company isn't paying for it - neither should these guys. And if they actually leased the cars just so they could become Uber drivers that was their decision not Ubers so Uber shouldn't be expected to pay their leases.

Re: “Durham Public Schools Takes Small Steps Forward Where Giant Leaps Are Needed

If you look at the performance data by race in Durham Public Schools it's pretty stark. It would be nice if the state broke out data by economics as well as race and gender. The intersections at play in many DPS kids lives greatly impact their school readiness, focus, and testing outcomes.

Re: “Raleigh landlord Bhola Gupta arrested for allegedly breaking into his own house, stealing tenants’ stuff

Re: “Wake County Judge Michael Denning: 'China Wouldn't Be So Bad If It Weren't for All the Chinese'

Impeach Judge Michael Denning!! Judge Michael Denning is a Family Court Judge whom stated "China wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for all the Chinese." Judge Michael Denning made a discriminatory comment as the Judge during a court hearing. There is no excuse for his behavior! There is no reason that he should be allowed to remain a Family Court Judge! He should be impeached. Judge Michael Denning is running for Superior Court Judge! He feels it is perfectly acceptable for him to make discriminatory comments as a Judge. The people of NC feel differently, Michael Denning! No one wants you as a Judge and certainly no one wants you in the Superior Court!!

Clintons’ use government position for total corruption, and personal enrichment; taking millions from radical countries’ who rape, torture, honor kill, sadistically kill woman and gay people. -Sell out America.

Hillary has plans to bring millions of undocumented radicals to the U.S. based on radical countries pay for play concepts. Saudi Arabia refuses to take in any Syrian refugees because the risks of terrorism are too high. –Sell out America without care of the terror it will bring to the U.S.

Obama's policies have contributed to the massacre of Boston, L.A. and Orlando communities. – Sell out America by suppressing information about radical ties to terrorism.

Re: “Durham Judge Moves Custody Hearing Out of County, Appeals Court Returns Case to Durham

Doretta Walker has shown, time and again, a very tenuous grasp of both judicial decorum and legal precedure. She was a mediocre prosecutor and frankly a disaster on the bench. She should not be re-elected.

Re: “The Durham Hotel Ejects an Asian Man from Its Rooftop Bar, Is Accused of Racism, Blames “Mistaken Identity”

I went to The Durham last night with two friends. We are all Asian Americans. The place is shit for people of color. Bougie as fuck. We attempted to sit down at a clearly empty couch outside and got told by a white waiter to stand up because it was reserved for a party of (guess what!) white people, who weren't even using it. So we stood there for no damn reason, threw back our drinks, and left. The only people who bother commenting on indyweek articles online, it seems, are a bunch of white people. The Durham is gentrification EMBODIED. White people will take your city, your businesses, your money, but not YOU.

Are y'all sure Watkins Grill is Black-owned? Their Facebook profile picture certainly doesn't emphasize that...
