Re: “Eno River State Park

The Bobbitt Hole is great. No better place to spend a weekend, or better yet a week with good friends camping, horseback riding & skinny dipping.

Re: “Marcoms

This place is like "Cheers" with a biker twist - from the endless memorabilia on the walls including those flanking the chrome logged fireplace, one a tribute to Raleigh's motorcycle legend, Ray Price & the other a tribute to America's Military Veterans, to the beer garden with the ever present scent of BBQ or burgers or something sizzling on the outdoor cooker. This is where friends come to see friends & make new ones. Great staff, great music & a great time - A kickin' bar for sure!

Re: “City Tap

The City Tap is the cat's meow. It's the bee's knees. FREE live music Thursday, Friday, Saturday night and the first Sunday of every month. 10 beers on draft, over 20 brands bottled, wine, mixed drinks slammin' pannini style sandwiches.
You won't find a TV in the place, the company is so damn fine.

Re: “Sip ... A Wine Store

I love April and SIP . . . April & her staff go out of thier way to be helpful, and to educate and enlighten the customer about wine and the advantages of being ecofriendly. I drive past other wines stores to go there and will continue to do so. If you haven't tried it - do yourself a favor/flavor and do so. LSS

Re: “Chapel Hill Historical Society

Dream Acts is an astonishingly complex exhibit that challenges the visitor's understanding of what a community is and can be. The artists spent about five months in the community, getting to know people, participating in activities, and giving out some camcorders.

The community is Abbey Court, Carrboro, home to migrant Latinos and Burmese refugees. Residents are exploited and suffer immense deprivations, but the artists discovered the joy and solidarity of Abbey Court residents, and that was their focus.

The quiet aesthetic themes of the exhibit are borders and barriers and keeping with that theme have erected several short walls on which they dynamically project the images of people, children playing, children hamming it up. On the walls are photographs taken against backdrops of "dreams." There is place for children to draw with chalk, just as they do at Abbey Court.

Of course, life imitates art too. Since the art exhibit residents have been more assertive about their housing rights.

One room is devoted to the paintings of a Burmese refugee, Nine Love. His paintings of life in Burma and the refugee experience are moving.

This is a MUST SEE. Dream Acts is open through July 9, 2-6pm Thursday-Saturday.

The Ban Mi was great, just enough fire to enjoy the fresh jalapenos.

If you like pimento cheese, you will love their version. Reminds you of why you love pimento cheese and wonder why you have not eaten for a while.

For the coffee, the only way it would be any better is if Dave roasted it himself.
Come see why Dave won 4 Golden Cups for his coffee with his previous coffee shop.

Re: “Blu Seafood & Bar

I really wish I could give Blu more stars unfortunately I think they have a lot of improvements to make on their service before this would be appropriate. Not to be missed, Blu's food offerings were delish - well presented and prepared, flavors and seasoning was spot on. I'm confident if they train their waitstaff or work on getting more experienced folks to help teach the newer staff they will be well on their way to a 5-Star rating.

Starter wasf Conk Ceviche - was so fresh I thought they just caught it only moments before it was served. For my entree (served nearly an hour after my first course - almost lost my apetite) I had the Feature for the day - Mahi Mahi was extrodinarily prepared...key lime pie was the best i've had...what a nice finish...much needed after over 3 hour total meal time.

Attention to Service + Quality of Cuisine = Recipe for Success...(aka repeat visits by diners)...

Re: “Southland Ballroom

Poor business management! Went last night for open mic night that was posted on their web site, in the INDY and every other local rag and the place was CLOSED! This makes the 2nd time I went to this place and the doors were locked. Spent nearly an hour waiting in the parking lot as 14 people came and went, all also disappointed. The least any good business owner or manager could do would be tape a hand written piece of paper to the front door saying "we are closed, no show tonight". What a waste of time, gas, and effort!

Re: “The Village Deli

Village Deli is perfect example of Location Location Location. We all have you been to a restaurant at beach or when you visit some new town there is a restaurant that is in the heart of the action. Looks inviting then you go inside and try the food, consequently are astounded how such a pathetic tasting food is served at gas gouging prices. Village Deli is it for Wake Forest. This place is Bad. REAL BAD… Wilted lettuce in salad. Hello! What appeared to be slimy old smelly cold cuts skimpy served on a huge roll. Tasteless. If I want bread I would go to a bakery. My attempt to get fresh salad was throated with rude/nasty person at register raising her voice at me. Wow… how about if I buy you a “side” of anger management classes Village Deli ?
Furthermore, this place is not a Deli not even with the furthest stretch of the imagination… I guess the thief that owns this place must know “Deli” in the name must sell. I have been told that there were others Village Deli's that went under, because of bad food and astronomical prices (winning combination). I am sure this one in Wake Forest is not far behind. Avoid this place at all cost … Do not waste your monies on bad old food that might man you sick…

Consistently high quality. I've loved everything that I've tried. The atmosphere is relaxing.

Re: “Blue Note Grill

Whether it's the blues jam w/ Butch, Friday's w/ the Duke Street Dawgs, or any other of the great venues at the BNG, you'll certainly be treated to some of the best music and very tasty food for the Triangle has to offer. This is a must do and you're sure to return and bring friends!

Re: “Blue Note Grill

The blues jam at Blue Note is a perfect storm. Lots of first-rate musicians who are happy to play with new folks and in new combinations. Hospitable owners and staff. Good and affordable food with great beers on tap. Cozy atmosphere where the energy is truly palpable. An audience that enjoys and appreciates the music (and dances!). Butch does a great job facilitating and making sure that everyone gets a chance to play.

Re: “Blue Note Grill

I've played, off and on, in Durham for almost 35 years. Back in the day, if you weren't in a band, you had to sit in with people who were or play in pick-up bands at parties. Now we have the Blue Note Grill's jam MCed by Butch Haas, an even-handed assembler of Tuesday night blues groups. Some players are veterans of the area's best-known blues bands, some are solid journeymen and some may not have played in front of a crowd before. All are welcome and all are encouraged.It's like going to a friend's house to play except Bill, Andrea and their generous staff serve up food so good that you'll throw your hat in the fire. And did I mention the array of local brews on tap? The Blue Note Grill is my favorite neighborhood bar. I just wish it was in my neighborhood.

Re: “Ballymor Irish Restaurant & Pub

Great stop. Authentic irish pub and awesome food. Music on weekends rock. Definitely out local hangout. Shepherd's Pie and Guinness is what it's all about.

Re: “The Gourmet Factory

Decent food. Nice break from what I can have delivered. But $20 plus for a six of beer? I understand convenience and proceed despite the price. One time.

Posted by stephen on 05/15/2011 at 8:20 PM

Really nice new club. The stage room is nicely sized and sounds good. Good beer selection at the bar, friendly bartenders, and a nice space to hang out it. Even a little bit of a patio for those nice summer nights.

Re: “Captain John's Dockside

Had my wedding rehearsal here, mainly because of all my great memories - and I did not regret! The service was amazing, the preparation and presentation was top of the line and my "very large" rehearsal party was very happy with the top of the line seafood that was served. I gave a great impression and that was thanks to this restaurant. I will never forget this dinner and I am more than pleased to give it a 5 star rating!
