Re: “Wake Forest Farmers Market

I have been to most of the markets in the area and we are truly lucky to have so many choices.
The amount of effort and cooperation between vendors and the managers to create these shopping options, can often go unnoticed by the customers who spend their Saturday mornings leisurely strolling the many venues. I am particularly impressed with the Wake Forest Farmers' Market because this group puts on their show with no corporate sponsors or municipal funding of any kind. It's just a 'organic' community of farmers, bakers, craft persons and musicians who team up and bang out a marketing experience that I find truly enjoyable each time I go. From the lively conversations between the vendors themselves and the often fascinating discourse that takes place when a patron asks a question about something that caught their eye.
Though sometimes a little rough around the edges and not as polished as some others in their peer group, the Wake Forest Farmers' Market stands alone in when it comes to my favorite way to start my Saturdays.

Re: “The Pig

We do carry out regularly from Pig. Southern BBQ at its finest although I'm from Hawaii. Still there is a common thread and that is pulled pork. These folks buy their meat directly from the farmer who treats his animals kindly so you know you are getting quality meat. Collards, pickles, cole slaw, hush puppies and their vinegar sauce are all wonderful for this island boy. If I were to make one complaint it would be that sometimes they go a little over board with the salt. Anytime we have visitors this is one of the first places we take them to. Oh yeah, the staff are very friendly and the price is quite reasonable.

Re: “Pittsboro Roadhouse & General Store

Delicious food, attentive service and charming decor. I recommend the salads as entrees, wine & bread with olive oil. The country store has lots of artistic merchandise. We had a fun time.

Re: “Bull City Records

Great selection, and Chaz's knowledge of music is unsurpassed. He makes incredible recommendations based on what you like. He hasn't missed a recommendation yet for me.

Re: “Only Burger

I kept telling my husband about how good the burgers taste at Only Burger. We finally were in the area and I surprised him with lunch. Before he even was half way done he was already planning our next visit and what he would order.

You want a great Burger that isn't greasy and actually has real flavor ..... this is your place.

Re: “Billsborough Live Music Hall

I've seen more great music and musicians at Billsborough Music Hall in the last couple months than I have the previous 20 years. The musical diversity is amazing and will please everyone. Our favorite is Jazz Night on Wednesday's. DEM Guys is GOOOD!. The bar staff is friendly with great selections. They keep you coming back with a smile!

Re: “Billsborough Live Music Hall

We recently played Bill West's Billsborough and had a heck of a good time. The staff was very friendly and welcoming, the choices of beverages was excellent, and the locals were warm and appreciative. Everyone seemed to be having a good time. I suspect it's not a well kept secret that Bill knows the biz from years of performing and knows how to treat his staff, clientèle, and entertainers. The room has such a great vibe to it. The remodeling he's done really enhances it. We can't wait to get back.

Re: “Billsborough Live Music Hall

Beautiful inside, great beer specials, perfect acoustics, awesome staff, and a homey feel. Plus they book acts you're not going to see anywhere else in the area, such as Charlie Hunter.

Re: “Billsborough Live Music Hall

I played recently at Billsborough Music Hall and thoroughly enjoyed it. Great music environment that's "dog friendly" and listener friendly. Bill West, the owner, really treats his audience and the musicians who perform there with respect. He's got a beautiful huge Newfoundland dog, Moose, who really made a big impression when Scott Sawyer and I played there. Can't wait to play at Billsborough again!

Re: “Billsborough Live Music Hall

Billsborough is a great intimate live music venue, where the music is supreme. The people love it, cause Bill is the consumate host that knows how to show you a great time. The artists Love it cause they know Bill is a highly skilled singer/songwriter, (Artist) that knows the struggle. His experience playing and entertaining go hand in hand with his warm personality. This Brother exudes Love. The place is dog friendly too. I have played there and had many a dog to come up on the stage and hang out with the band'. - ) Not to mention a hand picked staff of great people and a fine selection of refreshments. In a nutshell, 6 words, "If you go, you will know".

Re: “Billsborough Live Music Hall

I love music, but dislike big concerts. I'm more of a hang-in-the-garage-while-the-band-practices kind of gal and Billsborough is right up my alley! Cozy ambiance with great service! There is even a designated dance floor and an alcove for darts. Womens restroom was FABULOUS--cleanest (and nicest) venue bathroom ever! Looking forward to being able to visit again.

Re: “Billsborough Live Music Hall

Owner Bill West is doing all the right things to make this small venue an important one for his audiences and musicians alike. He's booking quality local music acts as well as regional and national name artists on tour. He's varying the musical genres that are offered. He's trying to make Billsborough a place unique to the Hillsborough and Orange County.
