Food Truck King on Thursday, October 20th from 5 until 9:30pm in City Plaza in the heart of downtown Raleigh.
Courtesy of Raleigh Downtowner Magazine: This is a free event featuring
live music, fire dancers, circus
performers, giveaways, and a food
truck contest with 12 food trucks
(see list below) competing for the rights to be Food Truck
King, complete with huge 6-foot custom metal crown created by local
artist Matt McConnell. There will also be several local breweries with
their savory craft beers for sale. Tickets can be purchased for sampling all the food trucks, two beers and giveaways for $25. Who wants to cook when there's choices and entertainment for the whole family! If its good weather, this could be a fun early evening out! Nerd alert: If you are a foursquare fan, could be a chance for a new food truck badge too!

I'm doing my part to support National Coffee Day...are you?? In case you missed it, Starbucks just opened a new shop on the corner of Six Forks and Strickland Roads. The true joy is the fact that its the first DRIVE THRU Starbucks in the general North Raleigh area, so needless to say we are thrilled and so should all you moms with kids who don't want to stop and unload everyone just to grab your cup o' joe. Located conveniently close to the dance studio and the YMCA. Happy Coffee Day everyone. Do your part. LOL.

Just in case you haven't heard already, the NC Museum of Art has a new exhibit starting at the end of October. The exhibit, Rembrandt in America is the largest collection of Rembrandt paintings ever presented in an American exhibition. This will probably sell out pretty fast and will be quite popular so may want to book tickets to see it soon. The dates are: October 30, 2011–January 22, 2012. Great day out with the family. If you can, stop by the cafe for a drink or light lunch. Very cool space.

See you again soon in OCTOBER for the Halloween Hullaballoo show at Motorco!
We joined friends Saturday night to check out the popular nineties band, Better then Ezra down at the Raleigh Amphitheatre last night. What started off as a cold, rainy night turned into a ton of laughs and great hits by these New Orleans rockers. They were funny, clever and sounded amazing. You can tell they still love what they do. They really connected with the Raleigh crowd, making them a big hit with the audience. The rain stopped just before they went on stage, making for one great evening out in Raleigh!
