Weekend Picks: January 29th-31st


NC Museum of Art – Iris Restaurant

Now that the Triangle has thawed out it is time to get out and explore. Here are a few fun events this weekend that caught my eye:


Peter Lamb and the Wolves Trio returns to the NC Museum of Art for a night of jazz music and art. The museum’s “Art in the Evening” series is free and open to the public. Music begins around 5:30pm. If you need dinner plans check out the Iris restaurant inside the museum. Reservations encouraged.

Have you been to the Mystery Brewing Public House in Hillsborough? If not this is the weekend to check it out. Plenty of their excellent beers on tap and Curtis Eller’s American Circus & The Wiley Fosters play the taproom. Show starts at 8pm.

The Durham Winter Food Truck Rodeo is this Sunday from 12-4pm in Durham Central Park. The event will feature 50 trucks, live music, and local brewers Fullsteam, Ponysaurus, Triangle Brewery, and Bull City Cider.

New Coffee Shop in Durham Opening This Weekend
Thanks to a post by my friend @MetroMonk on twitter earlier this week I learned about a new coffee shop opening on 9th street in Durham this Saturday next Tuesday February 2nd. I don’t know much about the shop yet other than that it is called George’s Java and they appear to roast their own coffee beans. I’m looking forward to checking it out soon!
