Weekend Picks: September 22nd – 24th

Tom M Piano

The Durham Street Piano Player performs at Cocoa Cinnamon’s Lakewood location this Friday

Falls has arrived and we are in the thick of outdoor festival season here in the Triangle. Here are my top picks for the upcoming weekend. The weather looks great so make sure you get outside and explore!


Durham Street Piano Pop-Up at Cocoa Cinnamon 
Join Tom Merrigan, The Durham Street Piano Player at Cocoa Cinnamon’s new Lakewood location for great churros, drinks, and street piano fun on the front patio from 6-8pm this Friday! Cocoa Cinnamon will contribute $1 per paquete (combo of drink + 4 churros) sold from 5pm to 10pm toward Tom’s kickstarter campaign raise money toward the making of a full-length album of piano-lead rock’n’roll. 


Carrboro Music Festival (Saturday & Sunday)
The Carrboro Music Festival is an effort to host a FREE two-day event that showcase Triangle-area performers and the varied musical styles they represent.  All of the performers donate their talents to foster a strong sense of community and to reveal their talents to a wider audience.  This weekend long event features 200 acts on 29 different stages across Carrboro. Visit the event website for the full schedule of performers.


Pepper Festival in Chapel Hill
PepperFest is a celebration of sustainable agriculture, farmers, and the creativity of the Piedmont’s top chefs, brewers and artisans. This pepper themed festival is one of the largest chef competitions in North Carolina. You can expect to find numerous pepper-themed dishes, local beer, family activities, a kid chef competition live music. It happens at Briar Chapel’s Great Meadow Park in Chapel Hill. Tickets are $25.

A new coffee spot to visit while you are out and about…
If you happen to be in Carrboro this weekend for the music festival I recommend a visit to the new location for Gray Squirrel Coffee. They just relocated into the space at 300 East Main Street!
