    The driftwood looks so good. I can’t wait to try them out I was thinking of doing Raleigh for the holidays so if I do I will stop through to these places

  2. Whenever I come to NC it’s to visit family. Honestly I don’t even do that often. My folks are in Kittrell and there is nothing there. I need to visit NC to see what they have to offer.

  3. All of this food looks so delicious! I am so sad I missed the event at Il Palio, but I hope to visit there and koan soon because the food looks so good!
