WEB EXCLUSIVE The October issue of Raleigh Magazine will be on stands around town and delivered to your doors and mailboxes in just a few days! If you can’t wait until then, here’s a quick look at some of the stories we have in store. 

A Place to Smile About

Everyone in Raleigh knows Maggie Kane, the hard working NC State alumna behind the city’s only pay-what-you-can cafe A Place at the Table. In this piece, freelance journalist Jenn Rice shines light on APATT’s executive chef Andrew Gravens, who is responsible for the cafe’s delightful sandwiches, biscuits, salads and pastries that are beloved by all—no matter their economic status.

The City is Moving

Since Wake County’s Transit Plan got off the ground in 2016, more than $13 million in new or modified services have been implemented in the southeast and northwest portions of Raleigh and in neighboring municipalities. This includes more e-scooters (with increased monitoring and regulations), Citrix Cycle‘s bike share system, greenway bike connector lanes, and Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) corridors.

25 Fall Things to Do

We don’t know about you, but we couldn’t be happier that fall is finally here! In this issue, we round up 25 fun fall-themed things to do around the Triangle, from carving pumpkins from the State Farmers Market to planting a fall garden with the help of Logan’s Garden Shop to taking a virtual wine class through one of Raleigh’s many wine stores. There’s something for everyone to take part in, no matter what you’re interests are.

Facing Closure

A survey from advocacy group Shop Local Raleigh showed that out of 200 locally owned businesses, 75 percent of them who responded thought that local leadership—the mayor and city council—didn’t have “the best interests of Raleigh’s small business community in mind.” After COVID closures and protests following the death of George Floyd, Raleigh’s small business owners are struggling and demand more from those who are running the city.

A Family Affair

When local independently-owned caterers Donovan’s Dish, Catering Works, Ladyfingers Caterers and PoshNosh found themselves in a bind once COVID forced people and companies to cancel parties, weddings, conferences and other large-scale events, they used their resources and know-how to pivot to offering family style meals people could easily order, pick up, or have delivered contact-free.
