Really digging the new branding campaign from N.C. Commerce.http://daresociety.blogspot.com/2015/07/nothing-compares.html
Driving back west down I-40 last night, I saw a billboard my friend Shannon had told me about. It's simple; it shows the letters "NC" with a pine tree in between with the catchphrase "Nothing Compares" below. I saw it and twe...

Raleigh boasts Horse Track, Stronach's and College Crest Alleys, all which can leave you "transported."

Probably my favorite answer from this interview. The question was, "is there a moment that stands out where you thought to yourself, "THIS is why we [Band Together] do this?"

"There are way too many moments to share. And they come in the most spontaneous ways. But there is one I will never forget. At our third event, we were raising funds for Operation Smile. We had a young girl who received cleft lip and cleft palate surgery from Operation Smile, onstage, speaking about her experience. You could have heard that proverbial pin drop – at a rock show, no less. The tears welled up in everyone's eyes as she explained that because of our hard work, she would grow up to be a confident woman. Someone who would go to school and not get ridiculed anymore. Who would get a job. Sing. Kiss. Get married and have children."

Just in case you missed it! Lessons from facing the greatest baseball players of our era.
The talent of exceptional players rubs off on those around them: teammates and opponents.

I recently found myself doing what any self-respecting parent would do: watching a “Care Bears” cartoon with my three kids. At the end of the cartoon, my oldest (who is 7) asked what the icons on the

A "ghost" in Reynolds Coliseum is celebrated decades later ... with drinking, of course.

What can we do with Dix Hill? What SHOULD be done? Let's assume that we have figured out how to make sure people have access to Dix and can actually get to it with ease. What would it look like when they get there?

Serious question for non-Southerners who live in Raleigh (or anywhere in the South, for that matter): Do you worry that your kids will develop a Southern accent?

"I think if you mention the term 'State Fan' to folks locally they'll picture a raving lunatic that's constantly whining about referees and is digging up more dirt on UNC to share on message boards. I hope I don't represent that guy, because I don't think the large majority of State fans act that way. The nuts are the most visible ones because they're just crazy enough or pissed off enough to share their rage in a public venue.

'Because in Raleigh, "Irregardless" is a word.' http://bit.ly/1BZWUxB
A good friend asked me the other day for my recommendations for brunch places in Raleigh. (Hi, Brenda!) I didn't offer much. It has been seven years since we first asked "where is the best place in Raleigh to get your brunch ...

This place is unreal. I must admit that I was skeptical about this particular brand of fusion, but Tio Chino not only makes it work, but it excels at it. The Kalbi braised short ribs were exceptional -- so ridiculously tender. I was, admittedly a little intimidated by the menu, but the staff were phenomenal. They helped me figure out the best things to suit my tastes -- and I didn't regret any of their recommendations. My only regret is that I live all the way on the other side of the country, and I don't get to SD very often. But next time I do, I will definitely be going back to Tio Chino.

We can't say enough good things about how much our dogs love Cindy, Taylor and everyone else at Raleigh Pet Sitters. They are always on time to come take our dogs out and play with them, and the detailed information we get when we return is helpful and informative. We would recommend them to everyone!
