The Restaurant at The Durham: Timelessness, change and Triangle Restaurant Week

(06/18/23 9:00pm)

An unabashed mid-century modern style at The Durham hotel immediately transports guests back to some six decades ago. The Durham opened in 2015, yet its architecture traces back to 1968, when it housed the Home Savings Bank. The gold and white stripes of the building facade have remained through the years, exuding a timelessness that distinguishes it from the red bricks typical of downtown Durham. To this day, The Durham is the only independently owned and locally operated hotel in downtown Durham.

Ricky Moore on ‘Food as Care’ at ‘The Ethics of Now’

(11/15/22 11:00am)

“The Ethics of Now”, a long-running program presented by Duke’s Kenan Institute for Ethics, brings speakers from outside the university into conversations with Duke historian and Professor Adriane Lentz-Smith. In each conversation, the speakers discuss topics that touch upon ethical challenges and are of interest to both the Duke and the Durham community. Lentz-Smith has been hosting these conversations for around four years, reflecting on the fact that the name “The Ethics of Now” points to the nature of these conversations — they are essentially concerned with how we live our lives in the contemporary world. Such conversations, Lentz-Smith said, also help give Duke students an idea of how to engage in thoughtful conversations beyond the classroom. Guest speakers of past “Ethics of Now” events include the likes of Min Jin Lee, the author of novel “Pachinko,” and Michael Schur, Emmy Award-winning creator of television show “The Good Place.”

A seasoned brew of bittersweetness in Arctic Monkeys’ ‘The Car’

(10/27/22 10:00am)

The most popular drinks across regions and time share a common feature: they are all astringent. That is, may it be tea, coffee or beer, they are not the most palate-pleasing beverages at first taste. They are either bitter or acidic with an unsmooth aftertaste on the tongue. It is precisely due to their lingering smoothness why people find those drinks all the more flavorful and intriguing the more they consume. 

Fall coziness and cordiality at the Black Farmers’ Market

(10/23/22 12:00pm)

The changing foliage seems eager to announce that fall is once again in full swing in the Triangle. Of course, colorful leaves are not the only treasure that this season in North Carolina has to offer. Fall is a time for fruition after labor and sharing the joy of harvest with family, friends and other kindred spirits. On that note, what beats visiting a farmers’ market with local fall produce as a way of immersing yourself in the beauty of this season?

Krill Restaurant takes a ‘fresh’ approach to Southeast Asian flavors

(10/07/22 4:00am)

Krill Restaurant takes its name from a small sea crustacean that lies near the bottom of the food chain, but is a main source of nutrition for much larger creatures such as the baleen whale. The name represents the restaurant’s wish to nourish the surrounding community through fresh and healthy plates. Opened in late July this year, this modestly-sized restaurant is tucked slightly away from the busiest section of downtown Durham, right next to event venue The Fruit. It is the newest addition to the Giorgios Hospitality Group, the restaurant group that owns, among others, Parizade, Nasher Museum Cafe and Vin Rouge. 

‘Roy Lichtenstein: History in the Making, 1948 - 1960’ exhibition opens at the Nasher

(08/30/22 12:00pm)

Some things arrive late, but just at the right time. The Nasher Museum of Art’s latest exhibition, “Roy Lichtenstein: History in the Making, 1948 - 1960,” opened on August 25 after a two-year postponement due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, with a current closing date in January 2023, the exhibition makes a celebratory nod to Lichtenstein’s influence on modern art on the cusp of the hundredth anniversary of his birth. As a fitting opening to the long-anticipated showing, the Nasher held its first media preview since the onset of the pandemic on August 24. It was led by Marshall E. Price, Ph. D., Chief Curator and the Nancy A. Nasher and David J. Haemisegger Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art, and saw attendance of over twenty representatives from art and media institutions around the country.

‘Severance’ is at once chilling and mesmerizing

(08/26/22 12:58pm)

“Severance” is not the first television series that explores the dark ambitions of giant corporations, but its one-of-a-kind conception of the neurosurgical procedure, “Severance,” that splits an employee’s memory into two makes it the most refreshing one in the past few years. It currently boasts a 8.7 out of 10 rating on IMDB and was renewed for a second season before the first season even ended. Although it has been on the Apple TV+ streaming platform for over five months now, personally, it has not enjoyed the recognition it deserves. With the second season projected to release early to mid-next year, now is the best time to catch up on its first season and let its spine-chilling storyline cool you down for the summer.
