Transitioning from adolescence to adulthood is hard enough . . . imagine the obstacles for young people struggling with serious mental-health issues. Come out to this fabulous and fun event and support Josh's Hope to provide job- and life-skills training to young adults with mental illness.
My family attended this event last year and a great time was had by all! The free outdoor event had something for everyone, adults and kids. Can't wait to go again this year!
Very excited for this!
Mad Hatter's Bakeshop is a great place for weekend brunch. Their daily omelets are always fresh and delicious. If you're in a sandwich mood, go for the avocado BLT. It's seriously amazing!
My husband and I had them make our cakes for our wedding shower, and they were fantastic. We got chocolate cake with mocha and hazelnut mousse.
Absolutely delicious! The oysters and scallops are fantastic, not to mention, the mac and cheese and white chocolate bread pudding. It was all great! Our waiter was friendly and knowledgable about all the dishes on the menu and the fresh selections of the day. He offered great recommendations and informed us that all of their seafood was no more than 48 hours old.
Amazing food no matter what you have a taste for! I love Brigs!
I hope they will keep serving seafood along with Vegan options!
I attended the sold-out show on Saturday, and was so pleasantly surprised. The humble setting of the Common Ground Theater was transformed and transcended with skill from this amazing production team. The work of costume designer Chelsea Kurtzman and mask-maker Will Deedler lent a surreal quality to the characters, who worked wonders in bringing life to their respective parts. Those without masks gave unfettered performances to this lively production which had many surprises. From the titillating interplay of Jade Arnold's Mozart and Molly Forlines' Constanze, to the tortured villainy of John Jimerson's Salieri, the play rolls and tumbles bringing the audience along to the inevitable and tragic end, but not before it delights with moments of spontaneous and gleeful anachronism. Well played.
I sat down in the third row tired after a long day and left refreshed after an evening very well spent. The Amadeus cast accomplished a funky, completely entertaining take on the story with skill, tongue-in-cheek humor, and passion. I was drawn in from beginning to end, there were no parts that lagged, and I was sorry when it was over. Well done. Very well done.

Best Authentic Turkish Restaurant in raleigh and drink special in historic city market downtown Raleigh
Best longform improv in the area.
Nice turnout this early - I hope more continue to show up at the libraries in the coming weeks!
The best venue for house music in the Triangle period! Mosaic is a Lounge that transforms into mini club featuring the best house DJs, local, national and worldwide. With an extensive wine menu, indoor and outdoor hookahs, a fantastic patio and great location in Raleigh, this is the place to go when you are missing the NYC/Chicago/Miami vibe.
Saw the show last night and it was absolutely wonderful! The acting was superb and the set design and costumes beautiful. I highly recommend seeing this show. You will not be disappointed!
The first thing to know about Coffee Haven is that it has a completely unassuming exterior -- in fact, completely generic. You can drive or walk by it dozens of times without noticing it. If you happen to notice it, you probably won't think, "That looks like an interesting place, I think I'll try it out." But in fact, it's a hidden gem. Once you step inside, you realize you've discovered something not many other folks know about.
In my opinion, Coffee Shop serves the best coffee on Hillsborough Street and even when compared to cafes downtown. They also serve fresh-made breakfast and lunch. This combination of good food, good coffee and lack of pretentiousness brings Coffee Haven to the top of my list for cafes in Raleigh.
It's also quiet. I set up my professional lunch meetings at Coffee Haven. Of course, there's WiFi. There's offstreet parking. And did I mention freshly made food?
Coffee Haven is located in a building that houses three businesses and which has a 1970's-ish Pizza-Hut style roof. It shares the building with an old-school barber shop and a shoe store. The signage is very, very generic. My first impression from the street view was that it was the kind of place that served Folgers and truck-stop food. The contrast between what you expect and what you discover is part of Coffee Haven's charm.
There are plenty of coffee shops to choose from in Raleigh and each is suited to different types of customers. Coffee Haven is great for grad students, working professionals and anyone who prefers the taste of coffee over the need to be seen as hip. It's not a place designed for undergrads who want to camp out for hours doing homework in overstuffed living room chairs.
My preference is for quieter, non-chain shops with good food. When I think about the many cafes I go to around NC State and even downtown Raleigh, my preference is Coffee Haven.
This is going to be a stellar show!!!!!!!!
