04/14/2014 - In the 12 years I’ve lived in North Carolina, I’ve eaten in just about every county and corner of the state. Food here runs the gamut from five-star fine dining to country food cooked the way the locals like it, but there’s a common thread that runs through every memorable dish: the food has a flavor that speaks to North Carolina. Whether you order Spanish tapas with a Southern twist; traditional barbecue with vegetarian options; or an inventive dish that plays with traditions, ingredients, and local flavors, you’re in a good place for food that satisfies, surprises, and showcases North Carolina on the plate.
04/13/2014 - In 1773, America's first Sunrise Service — an Easter Mass held early enough for congregants to witness the dawn's first rays together — was held in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, organized by the Moravians — a church with its roots in the present-day Czech Republic. The service is held to mark the empty tomb that greeted Mary as dawn broke on Easter morning. Since then, such celebrations have been held in such diverse and scenic venues as the Hollywood Bowl (which celebrates its 88th service this year), the Lincoln Memorial and Colorado Springs' Garden of the Gods.
