Triangle Restaurant Week starts today! Triangle Restaurant Week is a great opportunity to try new restaurants or visit an old favorite for an amazing price. Most restaurants offer a 3 to 4 course meal, so you have the opportunity to try a range of dishes. Make sure you plan your visits well as this week is understandably busy. Check out the list of participating Durham restaurants at their website. Bon appetit!
Two words, y’all: DEATH METAL. The “Overtures of Blasphemy” North American Tour featuring Deicide and Origin hits Motorco tonight. Check out the event page for more info on the bands. It warms my middle aged heart that the two headlining bands formed in the 90s, when I was also in my youth, and they’re still headbanging in middle age. \m/ \m/ Doors open at 6:00pm and the show starts at 6:30pm. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 on the day of the show.
“Beyond Despair: An Environmental Call for Art” is an exhibit at the National Humanities Center that delves into the connection between us as humans and the natural world around us. From their website: “The artists in this exhibition explore relationships with nature in many ways, from meditations on what we have and stand to lose, to evidence of the impacts we have already made on our environment. Far from depictions of horrific scenes or propaganda, these pieces are quiet invitations that ask the viewer to consider beauty, land, and loss. They are unflinching mirrors and humane elegies that create a space for deliberation and ask us to shake off the dust of inactivity and move beyond despair.” This exhibit runs through June 28, and you can visit from 8:30am to 5pm Monday through Friday. Admission is free.
