I need the larger version. Can you fix this one so I can download it. Thanks!!
Fair enough. Just noting that on a map, alleyways in Durham are named "# Alley." It is a very cool space.
The name of the bar is spelled Alley Twenty Six, to distinguish it from Alley 26, which is how it's colloquially known.
It's 26 Alley. Alley 26 is the name of a bar.
Follow-up to my "nervous mom" comment. The last coupe of weeks we have been in many situations with individuals that are alumni of NC Governor's School. Everyone without a hesitation gave us excellent reviews of NC Governors School. They were from all walks of life, beliefs, and they ALL had the same things to say. My daughter, I have found out, has been doing her own research and contacting alumni. She has many contacts from all of the leadership opportunities she has been involved in and is more excited than she was when she was nominated. I feel like we are waiting for a college acceptance letter a year early! She is an athlete that has the ability to play in college-it would be a sacrifice not visiting those coaches in the fall and training......but she has already made up her mind that being chosen would be more beneficial to her and will choose going to NCGS. Thank you for this forum..Praying that March will get here quickly!!!
Pretty sure some band named R.E.M. played their first gig outside of Georgia at the Station as well.

Jen's life story and work is very inspiring! I was very touched by how she turned it all around for the good of others. You are truly an Angel Jen!
They need to move Ms. Sandra OUT who was given this job in the first place. There are lots of very good people right here in the state who could bring in better acts and make money there at Dorton, even if it's old and has poor sound. Nothing against Sandra Brannen, the sister of Department of Agriculture marketing specialist Myrtle Earley (Hmmmmmmmmmm), but she lacks the skill and past record to continue in that spot. They might pay more for a REAL talent in the slot, but with the RIGHT people in there they could offer MORE and BETTER show, and even consider doing it during other times of the year for even MORE PROFIT.
Alcohol and tobacco kill more in one year than all drugs combined in 25. Sadly the almighty dollar requires the war on drugs and the taxation of tobacco and alcohol to continue. The war on drugs killed Tim nothing else. If one starts adding on the collateral damage of crime caused by the war on drugs the numbers get even more appalling . George W. bush all but admitted cocaine use so did Obama but he's black so you drug warriors are only saddened by the fact that his life wasn't destroyed by an arrest
Dorton Arena is kind of a crummy place to see anything, and as the article says, the acoustics are terrible. This is a poor place to have any concerts but they are now traditional and part of the state fair so there you go.
So why not think outside the box here. Dorton Arena needs to be knocked down and replaced by....what?
The GOP in Raleigh dont need no stinking water tests.....everything will be okie dokie once we start fracking...we can replace them old chemicals with new ones that dont hurt you. Guaranteed.. god told us it is safe.
If slavery became legal again ..I imagine a lot of southern republicans(1%ers) would be on board buying themselves new house slaves....and the justification would be hey its legal..and that the said slaves are better of being took care of by who? yes the Masta....
Mr. Tucker may be a bit confused about shark anatomy. He claims that both pictured sharks have a large pectoral fin. In fact, each has 2 large pectoral fins (one of which holds a beer). I'm guessing that Mr. Tucker was describing the large fin on the back of each shark. This is called the dorsal fin.
cool cool piece and well written to boot. thanks for telling us this wonderful story -- Anderson D Orr, Raleigh
Here's a way musicians can make a million dollars instead of lose a million:
First, you start with $2 million...
So, in your mind, racism no longer exists, and if one talks about it, one is only "playing the race card" or seeking some advantage for their political affiliation? If so, that sort of thinking (and I use the word "thinking" loosely here) is akin to the vitriol rolled out everyday by white supremacists across the country.
Gotta keep up the racialist meme otherwise blacks might realize how they have been played to mindlessly support the very people who have kept them down on the plantation....the Democrat plantation.
There are so many other opportunities to see great music in much better venues, mostly free. (IBMA, and all the summer concert series). I think the fair is in kind of a double bind, because great bands don't want to play in that barn, and the bands they can get are usually not worth the aggravation that going to the fair entails.
Duane Flatmo is an artist and muralist located in Eureka, CA on the lost coast of California. He designed the Lost Coast Brewery logo and most of the Lost Coast beer labels. For Barbara Groom to claim that her Flatmo designed shark is similar to Aviator's shark is ludicrous.
It is like saying a painting of a woman by Picasso could be confused with a Ruben's painting of a woman. Get off it Barbara, you had Duane design your labels because they were different and distinctive.
I suppose though, if someone drank enough of your beer ... they all would start to look alike.
