The project, called Hayes Barton II (HB2), will include a 12-story 300 unit apartment complex located in the center of the roundabout. Keep Reading
I usually try to stay out of politics on Twitter, Facebook, and Insta, mainly because I don’t want to lose any of my precious followers. Losing a follower just because we disagree on political issues like how high a wall should be or how deep a downtown Raleigh canal should be seems absurd. That all changed yesterday afternoon after my conversation with Donald J. Trump. Keep Reading
We did it. Thanks to me and some genius ITB residents, we now have a tool to free us from ever having to read “Raleigh – Durham” on the internet again. Here’s the story of how a few guys overcame all odds to create a Google Chrome browser extension to replace “Raleigh – Durham” with “Raleigh” and change lives forever. Keep Reading
Today we are #blessed to bring you an exclusive insider look at ITB legend Shavlik Randolph, who is currently playing professional basketball in the Chinese Basketball Association. Keep Reading
Update: There’s been some great feedback in the comments section below. The guy who created the original petition shared his thoughts and explains how he’ll pay for this. Shockingly, I think I agree with him.
We’ve all driven down Capital Boulevard and had that sinking feeling as we pass the line of cars trying to save 10 cents a gallon at the Hess gas station. After passing the ramp to the Wade Ave. 500 and the Light + Time Tower, you come upon the wide expanse of industrial buildings and begin to wonder Keep Reading
I ordered this Sunday night Red Dragon to ease my anxiety as the weekend ends and the week begins. Sadly, this aesthetically appeasing meal did not help me achieve that goal, bringing my total number of weekend goals reached to zero. Keep Reading
Twas the night before Christmas, when inside the beltline,
Not a creature was stirring, thanks to copious amounts of wine.
The stockings were hung by the gas-fired chimneys with care,
There was no doubting St. Nicholas soon would be there.
The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
Out like a light after taking Mom’s sleeping meds.
My hands are shaking from pure joy and elation as I try to type this. As many of you know, I’m traveling to visit the Pope at his house in Italy. He was so pleased with my coverage of his visit to Raleigh that he invited my family to the Vatican. On Tuesday evening, I boarded a plane to Rome, with a connecting flight in London. The flight to London did not have WiFi and it nearly killed me. Here is a recap of my struggle Keep Reading
The Pope ended his tour of the U.S. with an unannounced trip to Raleigh on Sunday. The visit was kept secret so that ITB residents would not have to deal with masses of unwanted outsiders flocking to see the Pope.
The Pope arrived at RDU in the morning and boarded his custom Tahoe Popemobile to begin his tour of Raleigh. Keep Reading
Google Fiber t-shirts have started to arrive at the homes of area residents. I’ll analyze whether the shirts are ITB approved in a moment. I’m still livid at Google for kicking out 518 West so they could move into their building and also for referring to Raleigh as “Raleigh-Durham”. However, I’m willing to look past this since they’ve selected Raleigh as one of the few elite cities in the country to deploy their fiber service, which provides super fast internet speeds and TV service. Google Fiber’s most amazing feature is that it isn’t Time Warner Cable. Keep Reading
I’ve never been sick. Despite their best attempts at pretending they don’t care about me, my parents at least had me vaccinated as a child. Sure, I’ve had the flu, chicken pox, and common colds, but I’ve never been sick sick to the point that I had to spend time in the hospital. I don’t have kids either, mainly because I can barely take care of myself. Keep Reading
