Live music is (finally!) back, y’all! We don’t know about you, but a year-plus of shuttered venue doors and silenced stages had us longing for concerts—any concert!—and we’re happy to report that many have already been scheduled, both here in Raleigh and throughout NC. In our music feature this month, we provide you with all the info you need to know for attending in-person concerts this year (think mask regulations and other safety protocols), give you the scoop on local band NiiTO, and round up all the big-name concerts you might want to (nay, need to!) pencil in to your calendar. 

Modernizing Midtown

Raleigh’s billion-dollar project, Midtown Exchange, has officially broken ground, and so we’re taking a look at what the 40-acre mixed-use real estate project by Dewitt Carolinas will look like once it’s finished (hint: There’s going to be a sky bridge!).

Staying Seated?

Mayor Mary-Ann Baldwin laid out five things our rapidly growing Cap City needs to focus on for the next 20 years in order to make necessary changes, including expanding the Convention Center and creating a Civic Campus that will house all city employees.

Max Trujillo, local hospitality vet and co-host of the NC F&B Podcast; and Kip Downer, entrepreneur and owner of multiple Burn Boot Camp locations, are planning to open a new food hall concept called Craften in Knightdale and Clayton—with plans to expand it throughout NC small towns in the future. We get the first look on what it will look like and what kind of food will be on offer. 

Rooted & Rollin’

Kaylynne Leggett’s Houseplant Hippie truck (think a food truck for plants) hit the streets in March and has since grown a massive following of die-hard plant-lovers and novices alike. Grow on, girl!
