It’s wood. That’s the first thing I notice when I walk into the Redneck Barbecue Lab. It’s a tiny place covered in rustic wood, vintage signs and mounds of glittering trophies placed front and center. It’s welcoming and different and feels more authentic than any barbecue place I’ve ever been to. This store use to be a white and fluorescently […]

The New NCMA Art Trail

The cool crisp air and the clear blue skies added to the serene atmosphere of the North Carolina Museum of Art nature trail. Kids laughed and ran around the open space while adults calmly lounged while chatting. The reason for this renewed interest in the art museum was because of the advertising of an improved outside nature trail. The museum […]
