A look at the art, local news, favorite restaurants, and volunteer opportunities around Raleigh, NC and the Triangle area.
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.
Raleigh Food Bank Charities and Local Farms
Give the triangle community a hand by supporting Raleigh food bank charities and local farms.
There have been substantial cuts in government assistance and in this time of need, providing food for our community should be at the top of our priority list. Sometimes that means volunteering at local food charities, but it can also mean simply supporting our own local agricultural industry. Here are a few ways that anyone can help out.
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.
Hopscotch Music Festival - Raleigh, NC
Hopscotch Music Festival has been committed to bringing top-shelf national talent from numerous genres to the thriving community of downtown Raleigh, North Carolina.
Originally formed by the Independent Weekly's musical directors Grayson Currin and Greg Lowenhagen, Hopscotch has recently taken on a life of it's own. Guided by thoughtful / forward thinking programming and a belief that providing a comfortable environment for the artists would inspire their best work, the Hopscotch Music Festival guarantees an amazing weekend for music lovers of all kinds. The addition of the Hopscotch Design Fest and some incredible Hopscotch music festival day parties mean the fun comes in all forms. Check out previous lineups and a few Hopscotch festival reviews and you'll be booking your tickets in no time.
The Cupcake Shoppe - Raleigh, NC
The Cupcake Shoppe is proof that buttercream should be listed as one of the deadly sins.
Sara Coleman (owner of The Cupcake Shoppe), owns what used to be a nondescript bakery just off of Glenwood Avenue. With the exception of the art store right next door, it was a part of the road we rarely visit. After hearing a few good things we decided to make a stop and I have to say, I'm glad we did.
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.
