Re: “Joyful Jewel

The Joyful Jewel is one of two amazing art galleries in historic downtown Pittsboro, NC. Other venues in town also have art on display for for sale, Blue Dot Coffee, Angelina's Kitchen, and the Pittsboro Roadhouse's General Store, but that is not their primary business. The Joyful Jewel and Liquidamber are both in the block just north of Courthouse Circle, where most of, but not all of, the town's cool stores are. Though there are two art galleries, each is decidedly unique. Both carry items for under $5 and over $500 and every range in between.

The Joyful Jewel is owned by Mariah Wheeler, a versatile artist who works with fused glass, metals and beads creating unique necklaces, earrings, bracelets and pendants. She is also a mentor to a number of artists, and a keen supporter of the arts. The Joyful Jewel features over 160 artists from North Carolina. Photography. Pottery. Sculpture. Woodwork. Paintings. Poetry and other books by local authors. Stained Glass. Unique clothing. Art from recycled items.

For any who love to have unique and original work. For any who love color and variety, the Joyful Jewel is one of the must-visit stores of the greater Triangle area of North Carolina.

Re: “Chef's Palette Restaurant & Bar

I've been in the restaurant industry for 17 years, working at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse and after dining at Chef's Palette their service and hospitality exceeded my expectations. The Chicken Francese was totally delicious! Great place.

Re: “Sharp Nine Gallery

About Sharp Nine: Durham, NC has another "major, extraordinary" thing now that brings a date night or a family night the flavor of New Orleans, DC, NYC! Do not let Sharp Nine Gallery go another week without you checking it out! This intimate, wonderful music spot, reminds me of Snug Harbor in NOLA. Btw, You can buy a glass of wine or bottled water or BYOB. Every seat in the small house is hot!

Re: “Nicole's Studio & Art Gallery

I have some background in art, mostly figure-drawing with black chalk creating images with value. I took what was described as a beginner's painting class hoping to learn some basic concepts of combining color. My understanding is you learn by doing and exploring. Nicole was not kind nor helpful to say the very least. She is abrupt and speaks to you in a condescending manner. If you go don't make any mistakes, she will call you out and ridicule you in front of the other students. Her patience and people skills are lacking.

Re: “City of Durham Neighborhood Improvement Services Dept

Very Unprofessional Field Agent, I have owned severalrental properties in Durham County over the past 9 years and I've only had to dealwith neighborhood improvement services only three times. My first two dealings with neighborhood improvement services were very straightforward in the field agent was very communicative, very tactful and was focused on resolution vs conflict.unfortunately my most recent dealing with Durham County neighborhood improvement services has been nothing short of a complete headache.repairs were done in a timely fashion, yet the second inspection done by the field agent Michael Vaughn did not note any of the work as completed,also to note the second inspection was scheduled the day before Thanksgiving which was very inconvenient for both my tenants as well as myself.To make matters worst,I received over 9 letters from Durham County neighborhood improvement services stating the exact same thing regarding the second inspection. The gist of which did not reflect any of the work that had been completed, its in my professional opinion that writing anyone 9 certified letters is harassment and a complete waste of city funds.as a property owner I understand the importance of combating slumlords and providing a quality environment for tenants, but criminalizing property owners as slumlords is counterintuitive to increasing quality housing in Durham County.

Re: “The Cellar

Great dive bar. Solid bartenders. If you are expecting a slightly dirty place, with pool tables and a layer of funk, you will not be disappointed. Not a top 40 kind of spot, more like a juke joint. Great place for last call or a pregame before the Cave. Very diverse crowd with lots of service folks from nearby restaurants. Also on the list for late night random stops. Speakers outside in back are a nice touch.

Re: “Schwarz Plastic Surgery

If this is the best Aesthetic Surgeon in Raleigh in 2012 & 2013, why did his business fail in 2014?
Genuinely providing excellent patient service with integrity and competence never fails.

Re: “Katy's Music Bar

Gary lee- nothing will ever compare to the blue bayou, the atmosphere and the music. You were an excellent boss and we had a great crew. I was sad to have to go back north, and was very sad to hear the bayou closed....although you worked very hard and it was finally your turn to relax and enjoy retirement... The bayou was, by far my most favorite job......I think of you often!!!!!

Re: “Fiesta Mexicana

We have loved these guys for 18 years. Good, consistent food, served by friendly and thoughtful waiters. The staff turnover has been slow, which means a lot to me. This is our default eatery.

Re: “Kerry Catherine Jewelry

Tarnished and irreparable. That's how I'd describe my relationship with Kerry Catherine Jewelry.

My husband has purchased at least 7 pieces of jewelry for me from Kerry Catherine Jewelry over the past 8 years. Formerly, we were satisfied customer of this business. We used to feel special at the store because of the employees, the customer service, and the unique designs. They would often recognize us by name and treat us as precious customers.

That all changed this summer when I went in to have a pair of Kerry Catherine Jewelry pearl earrings repaired and to look for another, new pair of yellow-gold earrings. I interacted with the male co-owner. I now feel foolish for not leaving when I received a quote of $150 to repair a pair of pearl earrings that I've owned for only 2 years. I was confused about the cost and the extra repair services, which sounded experimental (and that I later learned are a short-term repair that can cause long-term damage). I expected it would cost around $50 to reset the pearls. However, since I'm a long-time customer of Kerry Catherine Jewelry, and I've had good experiences in the past, I trusted and went ahead, despite my gut feeling and the condescending and rude way that the male co-owner spoke to me.

Subsequent follow-ups were upsetting and frustrating. Originally, the male co-owner told me he'd be in touch within a week about the new earrings. When I called after 2 weeks to check on status (in a normal way, as a normal customer does), he yelled at me about how I was treating him, how he didn't know where my earrings were in the process, and that I was causing other customers to leave the store (during our 6 minute conversation). Um, what?! Dude, customers are leaving because you're screaming at another customer on the phone. I asked to speak to the female co-owner, but that just enraged him further. Yikes.

When my husband later went in and asked to speak the female co-owner, the male co-owner called the police. What?! I emailed the female co-owner about the craziness, no reply. When my husband called a week later (because I was too scared to call), the female co-owner told him my earrings were ready and she was planning to call me. Um, ok? I never received that call, but I did get an email from the male co-owner telling me that he would call me eventually to schedule pick-up and that my husband and I should not call the store. That was the only communication I ever received from Kerry Catherine Jewelry during the entire ordeal. Finally, after 5 weeks I had an escort from a (wonderful) North Hills Public Safety officer, I paid $160.13 for my earring repair, and picked up my earrings all while being lectured again by the male co-owner. Afterwards, I felt like should have a stiff drink to recover.

My husband and I did our best to try dealing with the female co-owner directly, since she has been nice in the past (and the business is named for her), but the male co-owner was unavoidable, irrational, paranoid, and a long list of other negative adjectives. For several weeks, I wasn't certain I'd ever get my property back.

I have some very basic expectations from a business that unfortunately, in my experience, Kerry Catherine Jewelry doesn't share.

So friends, I rescind any positive recommendation I ever made for this business. Please accept my apologies.

Re: “Green Room

The Green Room is such a unique place to spend time. Not only do they have one of the best beer selections on the East Coast, the clientele are people of all ages, races, genders, sexualities, economic backgrounds, and creeds. The only unifying factor between us all is a dedication to dignity and honor that is gently aided by the wonderful housemen. If there were more places in Durham that could sustain this type of active diversity, we'd be a better city.
