This past weekend was full of old favorites, new discoveries and fun times in Raleigh. Friday night we kicked things off with dinner at Dos Taquitos (a local north Raleigh favorite!).

On Saturday, the girls had a Girl Scout event at the Museum of History, so we decided to make an afternoon and evening out of it. Our first stop was to check out the new upstairs outside patio at Raleigh Times. Totally love the new edition to the bar that includes a bar downstairs and a full bar upstairs with outside seating. It all overlooks the corner of Hargett and Wilmington and you can watch all the action from above. Definitely a new favorite hangout spot! I especially love that the new bar opens directly into Moon & Lola's store. Future plans could include a take out window from Raleigh Times...

Took the kids to dinner at Chucks for burgers and fries. Delicious dinner and the kids especially got a kick out of the old fashion soda pops in a bottle.

After dinner, we headed to Red Hat Amphitheater for a FREE show featuring Michael Franti & Spearhead. Talk about an amazing night, the weather was perfect, the crowds were minimal and we were able to enter the venue FREE and with kids. Michael Franti put on an amazing show. His music is upbeat, fun and totally the right fit for the whole family. It was so great to take the "tweenagers" to a fabulous outdoor concert and have as much fun as they did! Beach balls were flying, people were singing and dancing and what a great opportunity to share a great night out with my kids. Thanks again, Raleigh.
