Soup is like a warm hug and who doesn’t want that kind of energy on their timeline?! Chicken noodle, gazpacho, split pea, clam chowder, pho, cold cucumber, gumbo—and the list goes on. … No matter the weather, this Facebook group serves up slurpable recipes, tasty soups from local restos, and some killer soup memes.

NC Snake Identification and Education

Everyone should join this group. Hear us out—this page is dedicated to correctly identifying the 37 different snake species found in North Carolina (six of which are venomous!). You’ll know which snakes to avoid and which to let roam free (nonvenomous snakes are extremely beneficial to our environment; they eat rodents and mice that might carry diseases and damage crops). But if they are venomous, you’ll be equipped with the knowledge of how to ID them and what to do.

This page is full of photos of everyone’s favorite current brews, so crack open a cold one and share the love. Connect with fellow amber aficionados and IPA lovers to find the best breweries, beer spots and new releases in Raleigh. Plus, engage in a little friendly fire on topics like: “Is seltzer beer?” or “How many IPAs are too many for one brewery?” Let the debating commence!
