Re: “

The Ban Mi was great, just enough fire to enjoy the fresh jalapenos.

If you like pimento cheese, you will love their version. Reminds you of why you love pimento cheese and wonder why you have not eaten for a while.

For the coffee, the only way it would be any better is if Dave roasted it himself.
Come see why Dave won 4 Golden Cups for his coffee with his previous coffee shop.

Re: “Imagine Dix

If we can't keep the hospital on the property, then a destination park can help provide an income stream to fund mental health for Wake county for the next 30 years. The Mayor's plan to build single family homes, apartments and a strip mall will earn a few people a lot of money, but will do nothing but hurt downtown.

Re: “Dix Hill today and proposed plans

The ULI proposal is a solid starting point for discussion on how to proceed. The first question we have to answer is what do we want for Raleigh. We want a park that will develop over time and be an economic driver for the city of Raleigh and Wake County. Dorothea Dix Park will be the gathering spot for Raleigh and the state. Imagine tens of thousands of people gathering to celebrate the Fourth of July at the park, dancing to live music, picnicing and enjoying fireworks over downtown. Fourth of July is no longer a single event, we create a four day festival creating customers for the hotels and restaurants in what is normally the slowest week of the year. Imagine spring, the NC Celebration of Food and Wine over Memorial day, once again, a national gathering bringing people from all over the state sampling the best of NC. NC food and wine is featured, Welcome, Welcome... Imagine Christmas, horse drawn carriage rides, shoppers walking through a winter festival of lights and outdoor vendors. If you look around, you could be in Munich at Weinachtsfest. The smell and sounds of Christmas, children running and laughing. Building a strip mall, single family homes and 2,000 apartments does not require any imagination. It builds walls. The only imagination the ULI proposal requires is how quickly it will help kill the present revitalization of Fayetteville Street and our downtown. Let's imagine a great park and imagine a vibrant park and downtown that will make people want to come to Raleigh.
