Date night in Bull City.

Durham, it’s safe to say, I fell in love with well before I arrived. The independent eateries, boutiques and shops were nothing I had expected. A walkable town, we were on foot the entire time, with some new discovery right before our very eyes at most every turn.

Highly recommended:

Brunch at Scratch – Their Biscuit Benedict was buttery delicious with the perfect amount of basil and tomato. It’s one you should place your bottom dollar on.

Pizzeria Toro – Ordered their house prosciutto cotto, castelvetrano olives, crucolo pizza and a bowl of cold tomato soup with watermelon and basil sorbetto. Bursting with harmonious flavors. An absolute knock-out.

Vert & Vogue – Fashion forward clothing and goods for women and men.

Carolina Soul record shop – New and used vinyl. Heavy on the used. Heavy on Soul/ R & B/ Disco/ Rap/ Breakbeat/ Jazz/ Rock. Get ready to dig. Nice and helpful staff.

The Carolina Theatre – We took in a double feature, hosted by Retrofantasma. I’d never seen The Last House on the Left [1972]. New cinematic favorite? What do you think? [Answer: Y-E-S!]

“While clearing out images on my camera, I came across this set taken right before I attended a Fourth of July pool party last year. The dress’s original owner [my mother] is probably looking for it as I document this.”
