Re: “The Station

One of the best nights at Southern Rail. Same dj we saw at the Wailers show. Great spot on a summer night.

Re: “Tokyo House

We cannot get enough of this restaurant! David is an outstanding sushi chef! We frequent this place at least once a week! Service is always outstanding. Fish is amazingly fresh! Don't go anywhere else in the area for great sushi. Prices are great! Even better with the punch card that they offer! Scary Jerry, the Heikkido and MinWoo are some of our favorite rolls!

Re: “35 Chinese Restaurant

35 has a great selection, reasonable prices for both lunch and dinner.
The best part tho, is that '35' is my 2 grandson's (ages 3 & 10) favorite place...why? Because of the endlessness of their favorites, especially desert!
When Devon, now 10 was little, he always asked if we could go to the 'dark place' to eat, & now his little brother Conner asks the same question when they visit. My 17 yr old grandaughters love the food and love the dark place whenever they don't want to be seen with the old folks! it's a win-win all the way around.... 5 stars for all those reasons....and I LOVE their crisp, flavorful veggies.

Amazing room.
When approaching from outside the building I was awestruck by the large aesthetically pleasing mural incorporating the venue logo, lit up by multicolored LED spots contained within the walled in outdoor seating area.
The bar is beautiful with its relaxing lounge area- candle light with large bench covered in lots of pillows that traces the walls and there are many other comfortable chairs and coffee tables. The Bar is fully stocked with liquor and many local brews on draft (about 12 taps I think) plus there are even some wine selections.
Then I was drawn through the three inviting pillared arches welcoming me into the stage area. Across the room a large stage occupies the back wall. The sound is incredible- state of the art JBL line array system mixed from a Midas board. As one can't help but notice the impressive arsenal of lights that move and flash in all directions, fading from one scene to another- It is evident that no expense was spared in bringing the best possible live production quality I have ever seen in a triangle 300 capacity venue.

Re: “Cherry Bomb Grill

checked it out on my way to Baltimore this afternoon and I think I had the best service I have ever had in my life! I also ordered a cup of coffee and my server-which was outstanding and very hot- made me a fresh pot and brought me an ice water in the meantime (which I hadnt asked for but it was very refreshing while waiting for my coffee) I had the cherry bombs signature burger and it was the best burger I have eaten in my life. I travel to SC often and WILL be back on my way to (AND FROM) each trip. This place was fantastic!!!!!

Re: “TROSA Grocery

Trosa Grocery store is a much needed necessity in East Durham. Trosa Grocery welcomes Foodstamps and soon Wic.

Re: “Old Chapel Hill Road Park

I don't know if I love this park just because it's close to my house, but I highly recommend checking it out. For me, the highlight is the New Hope Creek Trail and the easy access to it that's now afforded by the Old Chapel Hill Road Park. The trail has been there for years, but it was previously difficult to access and not well-maintained. Now, from the park, there's a paved asphalt path that dead-ends into the New Hope Creek Trail + the addition of way-finding signs (with trail mileage noted) and a bike rack if you ride your bike to the trail. For dog walkers, there are also plastic bag dispensers and trashcans in the park (not too far from the trail entrance).

The trail itself offers a really lovely hike with chirping birds and an old (but now repaired) boardwalk that weaves through the woods to carry you across muddy areas. There's also a new drop-in to the trail off of Old Chapel Hill Road just down from Githens Middle School (and connected to the middle school by a new sidewalk) - it's an extension of the aforementioned asphalt path and runs along the edge of the school next to the woods leading up to the new park. At this particular entrance, the path is packed sand (not asphalt - in case you're looking for it). I entered the trail/park from there after a 10 minute walk from my house, didn't even walk the full New Hope Creek Trail loop, and still clocked close to an hour and 1/2 long hike once I was back home.
Thanks, Durham!

I don't get it!! I went to Stella Mare's last week and it was super!! What's the problem? The food was great...inexpensive...the service was fine...I really like the little waitress; she's kinda new, but tries really hard to please everyone and I didn't hear anyone complaining about a single thing. I recommend this restaurant totally! I also enjoyed the live entertainment... not too loud and he plays all the old favorites on the keyboard ( great voice too!) I'll be back for sure!

I happened to come across Stella Mare's restaurant on the internet (when I was looking for a good pizza restaurant- I really hate fast food places for pizza!) but I couldn't tell if this restaurant was good enough to visit ...or not! There was this one single bad review...and then, quite a few great ones, so I was skeptical about the negative one...I decided to go there in person, and see for myself. I was quite pleased that I checked it out personally, because if I would have passed on it because of the bad review, I would have missed out on a fabulous experience!! ........Great service! The waitress was extremely pleasant and efficient and I made it a point to meet the owners, who were not anything like the bad review spoke of...(You can't get people any nicer than this!!) There was even great live entertainment to go with the superb food...in fact, I ended up getting more than just pizza, after I saw their great menu and low prices...I'm so glad I went... Honestly, I think you will be too!! I recommend it for a wonderful experience.

Re: “Bistro in the Park

Lunch for under $10 for salmon, steak, soup, four different salads and a variety of desserts...this is the best kept secret in the Triangle.

Re: “The Original Q Shack

a quick great meal made to order in under 10 min everytime. They have THE BEST literally, brisket as well as pork butt (standard pork bbq and is really shoulder) but the best ribs are at Jims famous ribs next to whole foods in chapel hill a short drive away. the q shack has limited seating so u may be eating on a picnic bench outside.

Re: “Bahama Breeze

I LOVE this place! because of the distance we don't get to enjoy it but a few times a year but it is worth every dollar. I have only had one bad experience but that was due to a lack of communication, and the manger made up for it.

Re: “Durham Performing Arts Center

I absolutely LOVE this venue. I've been a President's Club member for 2 years and they treat me like a queen. And the wonderful smiles and services extended to EVERYONE, as I volunteer often and I have seen this class act from both sides. Money well spent. An evening you won't forget if you give yourself time to get there and research the amazing restaurants nearby (Piedmont, Revolution, Federal, Mt. Fuji, Tosca, etc.). A Durham jewel.

Do you need any volunteers to work in the Gallery :-)?

Wishing you all the best ...

Re: “The Tavern

I'm so excited the event has moved to Durham. I love bringing my kids out to see all the old bikes and scooters. A great charity this year too.

Re: “Walltown Children's Theatre

Walltown Children's Theatre is a great place for children to express and discover their creativity! The teachers are excellent and each child receives individual attention, Small classes, tutoring and a family atmosphere compliments this Durham gem!

Re: “Durham Art Guild

The DAG Member show is one of my favorite art events in the triangle. The juried show is great too but the member artists often display a wicked sense of humor and let their hair down a bit with the member show. If you don't walk away from this show with at least one piece stuck in your mind you weren't paying enough attention.
