Raleigh

A look at the art, local news, favorite restaurants, and volunteer opportunities around Raleigh, NC and the Triangle area.

Raleigh

Trophy Brewing Company - Raleigh, NC

What Trophy Brewing lacks in size, it more then recoups in quality.


Trophy Brewing Company and Pizza have capitalized on an under served part of Raleigh and brought a great establishment seemingly out of thin air. That venue is now one of our favorite Raleigh places.

NCMA Raleigh - North Carolina Museum of Art

NCMA Raleigh sports a dramatic new building and surrounding landscape with a collection truly worth seeing.


After a three year expansion, NCMA Raleigh reopens on April 24, 2010. The new "ultra-modern" wing and dramatic landscaping additions truly enhance the recent art acquisitions.

Pie Bird - Raleigh, NC

A frustratingly good idea named Pie Bird sets it's roots into Raleigh's historic Oakwood district.


I paid my first visit to Pie Bird almost 2 months after their opening. Although they reside within a football throw of my doorstep, time simply hadn't allowed a visit. When the folks stopped into town last week I realized it was a perfect chance to check the place out, I was certainly not disappointed.

The AIANC Center

An incredible modern design accross from Peace College now houses the North Carolina AIA.


The North Carolina Chapter of the American Institute of Architects is the recognized advocate for the architectural profession in this state. With a membership of 2,200, AIA North Carolina includes nearly 80 percent of the state's resident architects. Membership has increased dramatically, from 215 in 1955 and 695 in 1975.
