It's finally starting to feel like spring in the Triangle, and our artists are out and about at some great events in Raleigh and Durham this weekend! Recently, Southern Living Magazine named Durham as the South's Tastiest Town. We'd agree with that assessment, and with the Durham Art Walk this weekend, there's never been a better time to check out the food, art, music, and more! See you there!
