Lucky 32's pie recipe contest 

Lucky 32 Kitchen & Wine Bar (7307 Tryon Road, Cary, 233-1632, is hosting a pie recipe contest. Now that's some serious summertime fun. The only thing better would be a pie-eating contest.

The winner will receive a package worth $500 that includes a one-night weekend stay at the Proximity Hotel or the O. Henry Hotel in Greensboro, $200 in Lucky 32 gift certificates and recognition on Lucky's menu. Four runners-up will receive $100 each in Lucky 32 gift certificates.

If you want to get in on the fun, e-mail your recipe to by June 16. Include your name, address and phone number. Only one recipe per person. Winners will be notified by e-mail and announced on the restaurant's Web site on June 30. The top five recipes will be posted there also. Go forth and make pie.

There's a free coffee alert in Durham. The management of the American Tobacco Campus—perhaps wanting to avoid mid-morning zombies wandering the exposed-brick hallways—will temporarily fill cups, now that the complex's Starbucks is closed.

At the end of the month, a grab-and-go version of Saladelia Café (4201 University Drive, Durham, 489-5776, will open in the old Starbucks spot. The 20-year-old local chain specializes in sandwiches, salads, gourmet coffees and desserts. Its made-from-scratch fare features organic and local ingredients, and includes vegan and vegetarian dishes. Saladelia also serves organic, fair trade, shade-grown coffees which are locally roasted, and offers whole leaf organic teas.

"We felt our tenants needed a more flexible menu, more options for grabbing a quick but healthy bite to eat," said Michael Goodmon of Capital Broadcasting Co., which owns American Tobacco.

Until Saladelia opens, there will be free coffee on weekdays from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the lobby of the Crowe Building, near the old Starbucks location.

Last week, the Urban Food Group, which owns Frazier's, Porter's City Tavern and Vivace, all in Raleigh, closed its South restaurant in Raleigh's North Hills to renovate the space, and open a French brasserie this fall. "A French brasserie has always been part of our long-term plans; this is a fabulous location, situated in the heart of North Hills, and has the perfect floor plan for a lively French restaurant with a sidewalk café and patio," said Urban's Kevin Jennings in a statement. The menu will offer "classic French brasserie fare: gougères to start, moules frites three ways, plats du jour featuring cassoulet and steak au poivre, as well as sole meunière, coq au vin, and plateaux de fruits de mer." Add in house-made breads and traditional French desserts, an all-French wine list and cocktails. "In the spirit of a true brasserie, this restaurant will be open throughout the day, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner."
