Re: “Ashee Ethiopian Cuisine

This is now called Awaz and it's a charming little spot. I have spent about a month in Ethiopia and Eritrea and lived off their food 24/7 while in those countries. My second date with my now long term girlfriend was at an Ethiopian restaurant. I think for a white guy, I can speak pretty well to quality and this place is by far the best option we have in the Triangle, and really, one of the better ones in North America (DC is the Mecca for this cuisine, but Seattle holds its' own, too!).

I'm from Montreal and grew up eating steak tartars, so naturally I'm a big lover of kitfo, which is like Ethiopian steak tartare. You need to really trust a restaurant to eat food like that, which was NO problem for me. All the injera you need (teff grain based bread), some good sides like shiro, a lentil dish which is as comforting to me as homemade food from mom. Yes, I know my mother is not Ethiopian, it's just DAMN good.

There's a good menu, decent enough selection of wines/beers/typical cocktails. Don't go here thinking you'll have a renaissance with booze, but you will have a great meal.

Re: “VFW Post 7383

My name is Amy Sullivan and I am proud to be a member of the VfW Post 7383 in Cary, NC. My mom and dad were members of the VFW for many years. My mom was Past President two times of a VFW lLadies Auxiliary post, not this VfW post in particular, but they enjoyed very much being members of VFW Post 7383. My mom and dad were active members in the post as is my daughter Stacy Mcdade. Stacy has a son named Brayden who is six years old. He attends many VFW events in which are great learning experiences. Brayden wears his great grandfathers favorite hat in which hangs off it medals for bravery that were presented to his great grandfather who was a WWII veteran who served in North Africa and Korea. My dad instilled in me to stand up for your rights and that freedom is not a given many sacrificed their lives so we can enjoy our freedom, The members of the VFW Post 7383 does such great work in helping veterans and their familes which include many great fundraisers. One of which is special to me the Cancer Walks we participated in which my daughter Stacy Mcdade helped in planning and implementing them. I am very proud of my daughters accomplishments. Stacy does not know that I am writing this article. A friend of my daughter has cancer and has a son close age to Brayden. I was hoping she would join the post as she contributed some meaningful signs that are used at some of our events. The news of this friends cancer brought back a memory to me of a woman named Alana Giordano who was fighting cancer and a custody battle in which a Judge named Nancy Gordon listened to a custody evaluator named Helen Brantley state to the effect that the children should live with their father in a world free of cancer and illness. judge Nancy Gordon listened to the evlauator Nancy Gordon no longer serves as a family court Judge in the court in Durham, nc but I believe only as a visiting court judge. . Veterans have many illnesses including cancer so if a Veteran would have been in Nancy Gordons court battling cancer in a custody case or other illness whoever didnt have the illness or cancer should win. I was reading that Nancy Gordon was trying to get a veterans court I believe it was that if veterans commit a certain crime they would go to this court and perhaps be assigned someone to help them as they may need mental help. She also made reference that some are homeless. Veterans need jobs perhaps we can focus on getting them a job education etc. Veterans follow the law i suggest that Nancy Gordon should do the same in reading about the veteran court which I read a lot of articles on Veterans as my parents did I came across Nancy Gordon business of selling baskets filled with different things which include liquor. I followed this up and Nancy Gordon was issued a violation and abc commission is investigating . I have a copy of the violation. No one is above the law . VFW Post 7383 is a wonderful post that does such good work.

Re: “The Loop Pizza Grill

Good food, quick service, great prices. Pizzas are great, but so are the salads, wraps, and burgers. If you are hungry, don't want to waste time, but don't want inferior 'fast food' or overpriced offerings from 'trendy' restaurants, give The Loop a try. You'll be glad you did.

Re: “Manbites Dog Theater

Small theatre company with more love and sweat put into the productions than money. The play selection is always thoughtful and engaging; the casts are bold and wide open; the experience is demonstrably enjoyable and affordable. Plus, they serve coffee, beverages, and snacks! Bring a friend or four or five!

Re: “The Big Easy

We went here with friends one evening before the theatre. Best New Orleans food we have found in the Raleigh. My only complaint is the table and chairs near the door were not real comfortable especially for people our age. Good service though and want to return to when we have time to try the desserts.

Re: “Babylon

Discovered this restaurant one day on the way back to Fuquay Varina. It is only open for dinner and although we have eaten inside it is wonderful to eat out doors in the courtyard when the weather is nice. We have taken several friends and family there. Variety menu. Waiters are helpful if you aren't familiar with Moroccan cuisine. Love the Chicken Bastilla Rolls.

Well played, Kerry :)

Re: “Triangle-Wide

Excellent venue with friendly staff and great acoustics. Drinks are a little pricey, otherwise Four Stars.

Free parking a plus. Private bathroom with your own personal toiletries a plus.

Note to editor: Event dates need to be updated to include Jan 1-3 performances of "Laying in Bed at Home."

Re: “Blue Note Grill

Everything very unprofessional. They just want to charge you an "revolutionary fee" with all the service making pressure on you. It was a terrible bar. It is a lot more better food and music around Durham with much nice people managing it.
