Each week, we share – through pictures – what the folks behind Durham Mag have been doing around town. We’re always out and about, just because we love this place; we hope you’ll comment with what you’ve been doing, too!
1The Glass Jug
Associate Editor Amanda MacLaren paid a visit to The Glass Jug in Greenwood Commons shopping center for the first time, joining in on a JUGs meeting — learn more in our June/July issue!
Briana Brough, our photog, brought her newest assistant — 2-month-old baby James — to a lunch meeting last week. He pretty much just listened to everyone else’s ideas.
They don’t call the coconut cake at Thai Cafe one of Durham’s best desserts for nothin’!
VP of Content Andrea Griffith Cash had a fun lunch at Juju with two of the women from our May Women’s Issue, out now. Maggie Ellis Chotas and Betsy Polk wrote Power Through Partnership: How Women Lead Better Together.
Look for Andrea on WNCN‘s “My Carolina Today” — talking Durham and Chapel Hill — on May 13. The show airs at 11:30am.
Andrea’s inaugural Chubby’s Tacos experience.
And for dessert … Andrea went with the strawberry lemonade from Smallcakes. Gotta eat seasonally!
Every month, local makers and vintage vendors set up shop inside Fullsteam Brewery for the Durham Patchwork Mini-Market. Amanda marks her calendar for the first Saturday of every month for the market — it’s a great opportunity to buy birthday and holiday gifts!
Speaking of Fullsteam … even while she was off on a weekend trip to Charleston, Jessica couldn’t escape Durham. She spotted two Fullsteam beers on the menu at Husk.
11Parts & Labor
You work up quite an appetite while shopping! Luckily, Parts & Labor is right across the street from the market, so Amanda could refresh with a breakfast taco and chorizo hash off the brunch menu plus a pint of Bitter Unicorn Tears from Deep River Brewing Company out of Clayton, N.C.
12The Scrap Exchange
Nothing quite like the Durham Art Walk to get you out exploring local galleries! Amanda stopped by The Scrap Exchange‘s new home in the Lakewood Shopping Center to visit the Cameron Gallery, but couldn’t stop herself from picking up a few items for craft projects on her way out!
13Dress for Success Triangle
Andrea became a Dress for Success of the Triangle volunteer on Saturday. On display during her training: the before and after photos from our Dress for Success makeover. See the entire makeover in our May issue!
