HOTELS

AirbnbDurham’s got some airbnb rooms for you.

Durham Marriott City Center. This one is right across the street from the Armory.

Duke Towers. About a 15 minute walk from the Armory.

Hilton Garden Inn. This one is about a 5 minute car ride. Near Ninth Street where there are lots of good cheap eats.

FOOD

Geer Street Garden. Good food in a comfortable atmosphere. Check out their fish tacos. 644 Foster Street.

Scratch. Amazing baked goods and coffee. 111 Orange Street. (It’s open till 3PM on Sat. A good breakfast/lunch option, though I don’t really understand the pie crust. Is it supposed to be hard like that? -bb)

Loaf. Yummy baked goods and coffee. 111 W. Parrish Street.

Pizzeria Toro isn’t super cheap, but some pretty good thin crust pies pop out of its wood burning oven.

Bull City Burger and BreweryGood burgers and beer -Eric Knisley

Another good local restaurant close to the Armory is Dos Perros –Eric Knisley

A bit of a hike from the Armory, but very good is The Federal -Eric Knisley (My veggie pick: black bean sliders -bb)

Super-pricey and super-good, The Revolution. -Eric Knisley

If you want some NC-style bbq, try The Pit. They have barbecued tofu & occasional experimental film screenings upstairs. -bb

Ev’s Coffee Shop Trifecta: Joe Van Gogh, Cocoa Cinnamon, and Guglhupf.

Parts&Labor at Motorco. Very casual, good cheap eats and a good bar. Across the street from Fullsteam. -Ev

JC’s Kitchen.“Where the food is anointed and you won’t be disappointed,” it says on the wall. Soul food that’s good for the soul.

DRINK

Fullsteam Brewery. Really good beer. 726 Rigsbee Avenue. (The ambience: Hipster brew pub meets Chuck E. Cheese birthday party. I mean this in a good way.-bb)

I’d suggest sitting out back at Pinhook and watching the freight trains roll by, but most people go for the booze and the bands. -bb
