The weather in Raleigh is great for outdoor fun. How do you take advantage of it, and where do you go to enjoy it?
Theo – I’ll join Will on the golf course, and I love tennis, too. Pullen Park is always great for families year round, and my wife, Sally, and I love walking around the trails at the North Carolina Museum of Art. If I’m headed out of Raleigh, chances are I’m in Morehead City/Atlantic Beach.
It’s 5:30pm on a Tuesday afternoon and the weather is great. Where do you go?
It’s Sunday, and you’re craving brunch. Where to?
Will – Porter’s fan.
Theo – Coquette, please.
Dinner time. What’s your latest spot or a long-time favorite?
Theo – Hayes Barton. And save room for dessert. Try the patty cake!
Lunch time list?
Will – Community Grocery off Oberlin Rd. for the best BLT or grilled cheese with bacon. If I’m in the mood for a hot dog, then The Roast Grill hands down.Cash only and “no ketchup!”
Raleigh is a big college sports town. If you can’t be AT the game, where do you recommend going to watch a game?
Will and Theo in unison – The Player’s Retreat. Everyone must go at least once. It’s a Raleigh institution.
Since we’re on the sports topic, what’s your favorite spectator sport in the area?
Will – I love it when baseball season rolls around. The Amtrak train from Raleigh to Durham is quick, easy, and and drops you about a ½ mile from the DBAP.
Theo – Love games at the DBAP, and of course Hurricanes hockey at the PNC.
Fun venue for group of friends or family fun?
Will and Theo unanimous vote – The Alley for bowling on Hillsborough Street.
It’s a Sunday night, and you don’t feel like cooking. Best spot for take-out or delivery?
Will – Red Dragon for Chinese.
Raleigh and the Triangle get a lot of press for its music scene. Any particular spots where you go to catch a show?
Will – Some of the best shows I’ve seen have been at the Lincoln Theatre. It’s great for a small club show. And in the summer, the North Carolina Museum of Art programs great acts for their outdoor concert series.
Theo – Red Hat Amphitheatre in downtown Raleigh. Super venue and ideal location for a night out.
