Weekend Picks: December 9th – 11th


Maude’s Garden & Coffee ~ North Raleigh

It’s going to be a bit cold the next few days, but don’t let that stop you from getting out and exploring. Here are my top picks of things to do this weekend!


Vita Vite
Join Vita Vite Art Gallery and Wine Bar Friday 7-11pm as they celebrate first anniversary! Drop by on Friday evening to enjoy live music, a festive photo booth and delectable desserts. Vita Vite features a variety of 20 carefully-selected wines and artwork from 10 local and regional artists.


Holiday Open House at Maude’s Garden & Coffee
Maude’s is a cool combination of garden and coffee shop in North Raleigh. On Saturday from 12-5 they are hosting an open house featuring the owner and roaster from their coffee supplier, Carrboro Coffee Company. They will also have live music and specials on coffee drinks. The Garden shop features Original art for the garden and home by artists from across the country. Think handmade wind chimes, metal art, and one of a kind birdhouses and mosaics. They are also the Triangle’s largest selection of miniature and fairy garden accessories.
