Re: “Pittsboro Roadhouse & General Store

I usually don't take the time to post reviews, good or bad, but this place needs to be shared! I can't think of a better place I'd like to go for lunch, dinner or just about any kind of entertainment. This place has it all. It seems this place is very clean, very well managed, thought out, with a specific goal in mind. Not just providing more than exceptional food, but providing an experience. The wait staff was pleasant, efficient, and on top of everything (even with what looked to be a full house) My wife enjoyed the Gouda Mac n Cheese, I had the Blackened Chicken Alfredo, my daughter polished off a plate of angel hair pasta (she says its the sauce that makes it), and my son loved his hand battered chicken tenders. Portions are very generous and priced just right. It would be safe to say that the PBO Roadhouse isn't the cheapest place in town, but is by no means expensive. We paid exactly what I would expect to pay for what we got. This place has got it all, after looking at the entertainment lineup there, we realized this place is the place to be. Whether you like live music, (any genre, big band orchestra to AC/DC cover bands!), live theater performance, or even comedy shows, this place has it all. We will definitely be making this our regular weekly dining destination. Very much looking forward to a night out there without the kids too! Did I mention they have a HUGE dance floor and a nice bar? If you haven't been there, you need to go.....tonight, tomorrow, (heck, go tonight and tomorrow!) ,or just as soon as you can get there! You're missing out!

Re: “Hedwig and the Angry Inch

Incredible performance. I had seen the movie a couple times, seeing it on stage left me much more effected than I had expected. Secondarily I left feeling I had just attended the concert of my favorite band, before knowing they were my favorite band.

Re: “Burger Smashdown

By the time you drink 2 or 3 beers and eat the burgers you'd have spent a lot more than $50, and the point is to raise money for a great cause, the Food Bank of NC. This is a fabulous and fun event!

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: “Lori Horvitz

Lori Horvitz, who has been compared to David Sedaris, is a creative writing professor and director of women's studies (women, gender, and sexuality) at UNC Asheville. Her book, The Girls of Usually, is a collection of creative nonfiction essays, called "deeply intimate and wickedly funny."

About the book: ​Lori Horvitz grew up ashamed of her Eastern European Jewish roots, confused about her sexuality, and idolizing the "shiksa in her living room," a blonde all-American girl whose photo came in a double frame and was displayed next to a family photo from a bar mitzvah. Unable to join the "happy blonde families," she becomes a "hippie chick" who travels the world in search of … something. The Girls of Usually chronicles each trip, each romance, each experiment in reinventing herself that draws her closer to discovering the secret door through which she can escape from deep-rooted patterns and accept her own cultural, ethnic, and sexual identity.

Quote from the book jacket: "In the back of my underwear drawer, I left notes for myself: By the time you read this, you'll be happier and have bigger breasts! But for now, I practiced magic routines in front of my pocket poodle, Sunshine, the only family member I could hold and hug."
- Lori Horvitz, The Girls of Usually (Just released in February, 2015)

Re: “Vampirates, Drunk in a Dumpster, Future Crimes, Poison Anthem

VAMPIRATES – The Nevada road warriors return to the Triangle on their Tour of Terror 2015! Their short, loud bursts of frenetic flagellation will leave you stunned and confused. Irrational mayhem that echoes in your head for days? Well, yeah, but you want your five dollars’ worth of entertainment, right? Good thing you’ll have Sunday to recover.

https://www.facebook.com/thevampirates
http://vampirates.bandcamp.com/
http://www.vampirates.org/

DRUNK IN A DUMPSTER – TrAsheville’s band of mentally challenged, alcoholics bring their brand of booze fueled chaos back to Slim’s. Maybe this will be the night Dave has a heart attack on stage, but more likely he’ll slip on his own vomit and do face plant into the drum set…again.

https://www.facebook.com/drunkinadumpster
http://noprofitrecords.limitedrun.com/prod…

FUTURE CRIMES – Have you ever wanted to snort a few lines of coke off a box of tampons with a transvestite in a filthy bar restroom? Who hasn’t, am I right? "Hairy Bear,” Ziggy Sprinkle and his band of miscreants continue to push their “homosexual agenda” throughout the Tar Heel state derailing years of bigotry. If you’ve never questioned your sexual orientation, after seeing Future Crimes you just might.

https://www.facebook.com/FutureCrimes
http://noprofitrecords.limitedrun.com/prod…

POISON ANTHEM – Distilled to perfection, this Raleigh quintet will numb your pain, light a fire in your belly and rejuvenate your soul. Boys, check your macho attitude at the door, because lead vocalist Ashley Vixen will stomp your balls as you beg for mercy.
