The faces on our February/March cover are probably pretty familiar to you.
Tommy Bullock, owner of Bullock’s Bar-B-Cue, and his family just celebrated 60 years in business in 2012 and hold the honor of being the longest-serving restaurant in Durham. They grace our pages with the humble story of their origin mixed in with anecdotes of celebrity encounters and good old-fashioned hard work. Four other family-run businesses also share tales from their histories: Scarborough & Hargett Funeral Home, Everett & Everett law firm, Marie Austin Realty and Sanders Florist.
Following Duke’s Office of Durham and Regional Affairs Annual Report, a special supplement to our magazine, take a glimpse into the modern lifestyle of Alliance Architecture Principals Vandana Dake and John Warasila at the Rigsbee Avenue loft they designed themselves (naturally) in our aptly named ‘How They Live’ feature.
In celebration of Black History Month, we’ve brought you reflections from Anna Jones, R. Kelly Bryant, Lois Deloatch and Mayor Bill Bell on the black experience in Durham based on interviews conducted by the Museum of Durham History.
We showcase a longstanding camp with year-round programming, Schoolhouse of Wonder, that promises to return your kids dirty, tired and happy or your money back, and our yearly camp guide, an extended version of which can be found HERE. We also talk with couples who have opted to not have children, a trend that’s on the rise nationally.
We hope you’ll enjoy these features, as well as reviews of the new Ai Fuji Japanese Steakhouse and Alivia’s Durham Bistro’s cocktails, a Q-and-A with American Underground’s Adam Klein, our new business and real estate section and much more!
