Durham + 8 months
So I've only been gone for a few months, but plenty in Durham looks different. Since I last drove around downtown, Pettigrew St. has suddenly gone up in lights: the new Performing Arts Center is beautiful at night, the Bull Durham neon sign ("Bull Du" on election night -- some bulbs were out) is blazing red, and the transportation center has gotten all framed out. Holy cats! I also visited the north side of Washington St. where I got my first glimpse of the two new/adapted buildings at Trinity.
Still undone: I have yet to visit Pinhook, Maverick Partners has yet to put any tenants into the great space at 1001 W. Main St., and Mangum South 219 has yet to be renovated. Too bad on all counts, though I think I can rectify one of those by myself.
It's good to be back. Now if only we could replace Pettigrew St. with a river.
I read "liver" for "river" there, buddy. That made for a very interesting ending to your post. :-)

What would be even better is seeing your mug in person! Come see me in my NEW digs; there's some change for you...call me, dear!

The Pinhook is awesome. If you are there Saturday night, come say hi (I play bodhran in Oyster Destroyster).
