Some more to add to this list. Arguably the coolest bar in town, The Republic, located between Whisky and Mateo. A new bar, Bar Lusconi, just opened downtown. Wine bars are missing from this list. Two that come to mind are West End Wine Bar and Six Plates. G2B has some of the most esoteric beer selections in town.
This was just a list of bars, nothing really interesting was said about any of them. I thought by the title you would have more insight into each spot and not just a basic overview. Not to be mean, but as a new person in Durham, this maybe the most boring bar hoping article I've ever read.
The Mutual Savings Bank over the We Want Oprah building jut around the corner? For shame.
I have an art exhibit on display this month - May 2013 - at the above-mentioned Joe Van Gogh (1104 Broad St, Durham)! Pop by and check it out! http://www.facebook.com/events/50245945647…
Not that it matters, but surely you know that Tyler's is a fairly recent addition to downtown (like all of the American Tobacco complex)? Durham has been "cool" long before Tyler's decided to open an outpost downtown. Futhermore, the "Durham Find Your Cool" sloganeering will forever piss me off.
An extensive piece on South Durham is in our Eats guide. Also, Kat Benson, the author of the piece in the Durham Finder about places for families—all over the county—lives in South Durham.
I'm going to have to agree with Fritx, not putting Tyler's in there is a big mistake. Tyler's came in well before most of those places and helped pioneer craft beer in the triangle. They were downtown before it was cool.
There is more to Durham than just downtown, how about doing a feature on South Durham? Lots going on there too!~
Tylers Taproom should be on there
Raleigh is pretty cool, yes. But Cary? We have nothing in common.
Most of Raleigh---particularly downtown and the rest of ITB--would rather be lumped in with Durham and Chapel Hill/Carrboro. You know, the original three points of The Triangle.
But Cary and the rest of Wake County is about as embarrassing as it gets. Conservative, right-winged, and sprawling suburbia. They have more in common with Johnston County than the rest of the Triangle, in my view.
For god's sake don't put us in the same article as them.
Raleigh, for all it's positive points, will always have the disadvantage of being in Wake County---but we'd really like to distance ourselves from it if we could, thankyouverymuch.
Absolutely, bag of shredded sharp cheddar, couple of dollops of good mayonnaise like Duke's or Hellmann's. Some people put some sour cream or a little cream cheese. One jar of pimentos, Dromedary are best, because they are from Johnson City, TN. Pinch of garlic powder, couple shots of Worchestershire sauce, salt and black pepper to taste. That's it. Let sit in the refrigerator overnight or at least several hours.

here is the N&O's story on Clark Wang's funeral two years ago:
Not sure if they are showing worldwide watched doc called "Searching for Steele". If the Bush Administration is not charged with war crimes, we are doomed as a country. This documentary shows black & white, on paper, letters of PROOF they all knew & authorized torture & forced our soldiers to watch the torture they ordered-& see what happens if they speak out, like Bradley Manning-a true hero to the truth of the terror we are paying for. We have to get these radicals out of our government or the rest of the world, I fear, will turn on us. We have become like a big dumb jock that bullies those who have less, instead of doing good, we have Republican US Senators, etc.radicals, going to Uganda, Africa-teaching them the "evils of homosexuality", who now want to kill gay people because of right-wing fundamentalist religion-that does harm- not the good it should. Ayn Rand is NOT Jesus Christ. Wake up Republican voters, please.
Saw "Blood Brother" at Sundance and was moved. Then learned the next day that subject and filmmakers alike are from the Greater Pittsburgh Church of Christ. And that Rocky Braat was in India as a missionary, and converted many of these kids to Christianity. Maybe it shouldn't make a difference, but ugh. Guess google had to ruin it for me...
what was his number....
In a world that needs those who strengthen our community, Bill Padgett is one of my heroes. Thanks Bill and many others for your continuing efforts to make our home a better and more inclusive place for everyone.
NC is indebted to the dreams and the voices of 10s of thousands of Dix Park supporters who for over a decade worked to preserve this land for a 21st century destination park for all the people of NC and the generations to come. A special thanks to Mayors Nancy McFarlane & Charles Meeker, Governor Beverly Perdue, the Raleigh City Council and the NC Council of State who listened to and entrusted this land to their people.
Quoting Stanley Abbott, landscape designer for our Blue Ridge Parkway:
“I can’t imagine a more creative job than locating that Blue Ridge Parkway, because you worked with a ten-league canvas and a brush of a comet’s tail.”
Perhaps I can speak for the thousands anxious to participate: let’s bring out our canvases and brushes, find our Umsteads and Abbotts, unleash the excitement and imagination of our people as we begin together the journey to make Dix Park our 21st century masterpiece.
Woohoo! Go YES! Team!
"Pecan Pie" by Golden Smog is a genuine tribute to pie, and not the metaphorical kind. OK, there's some love mixed in...
I forgot a great song, the live version of "Sugar Pie" by the Subdudes. It's on the album, "Live at Last."
