We get it – the pet parents among us have longer lists and fuller suitcases when we travel… ones that include leashes, bowls, and chew toys that our furry families can’t go without. Getting your pup in the back seat is the first step of course, but what about when you arrive on location? Here in Durham you need not leave your pets on the curb – we invite you to bring them into the heart of your adventures! Read on... we’re out to prove that Durham is as pet friendly a city as they come.
National Beer Day is April 7, which coincides nicely with April being North Carolina Beer Month. Winter fading into the rearview mirror traditionally sparks creativity from craft brewers, and Durham breweries are no exception. You can try plenty of springtime seasonals, or enjoy old favorites while basking in the sunshine. Here's what we'll be drinking this spring:
The 21st annual Full Frame Documentary Film Festival is April 5-8, bringing both national and international filmmakers, producers, writers, and film lovers to the heart of Downtown Durham. The four-day festival offers indoor and outdoor screenings of nearly 100 films, panel discussions, parties, and social activities from morning until night. A major draw of the festival is its commitment to encouraging a safe and open forum for unfiltered conversation, and there’s no doubt that the role of women in the film industry is sure to be a topic of discussion.
On March 8 (also known as International Women’s Day), the Full Frame team released this year’s film listing to the public, featuring more than 25 films exclusively directed by women. As you plan your film screenings, consider reserving a seat for these eight female-directed films.
When spring arrives it's time to get rid of the old and make way for the new. A quirky piece of wall art or a statement necklace is all you need to spruce up both your home and wardrobe. Whether you're a Durham resident looking to rep your hometown or a visitor wanting to bring home a taste of Bull City, you're sure to find the perfect item in these locally-owned boutiques. Visit these four Durham boutiques and local artisan market to find everything from delicate jewelry and stylish leather belts to hand-painted wood signs on your next round of spring shopping.
