Bojangles’ Coming Near Carter-Finley Stadium
Bojangles’ is opening a new location just a few football fields away from Carter-Finley Stadium.
According to exclusive site review plans that we obtained last week, Bojangles’ will be turning a vacant 1.6 acre parcel of land into the site of a 4,180 square foot Bojangles’ Famous Chicken ‘n Biscuits.
Located at 1541 Sunday Drive, the new restaurant is being developed by Tri-Arc Food Systems, one of the largest Bojangles’ franchises in the area. Tri-Arc owns and operates all ten of Raleigh’s existing Bojangles’ locations, as well as a number of locations in surrounding areas.
Could this be the location of next year’s Tasty Beverage New Belgium Bojangles’ Beer Dinner? We’ll keep a close eye on it.
Calavera Begins Work On Tasty 8’s Space
Calavera has begun work on their new location in the former home of Tasty 8’s. Last week, permits were issued for $95,720 worth of renovations to the 1,220 square-foot space at 121 Fayetteville Street.
Calavera, owned by Raleigh restaurateur Ken Yowell (Oak City Meatball, Kaiju), closed its South Blount Street location in February. Fortunately, they found a home for their empanadas and tequila just a few blocks away.
The owner of Tasty 8’s, Dr. Brett Wells (the best dentist in Raleigh), had decided to close the restaurant to focus on his growing dental empire.
You Serious Clark Avenue?
If you’re frustrated with the inability to easily access Cameron Village by using Clark Avenue, you are not alone.
Raleigh residents will have to wait a few more weeks for construction on the stormwater culvert underneath Clark Ave. to be completed. The 70-year-old stormwater pipe will be replaced with two parallel 60-inch concrete pipes that are each about 85 feet long.
Clark Ave. will remain closed between W. Peace Street and the Clark Avenue/Bellwood Drive intersections until construction is finished in November.
A Whole New Door
The Starbucks at Cameron Village is set to undergo a minor renovation. Permits were issued to Independence Construction Company last week for a “front door/entry change” project valued at $7,006.
Hopefully, they won’t have to close during the construction. We all remember what happened last time the Starbucks closed for 48 hours.
Papa Shogun Coming to Seaboard Station
Papa Shogun, an Italian/Japanese concept opening at Seaboard station, received ABC Inspection permits last week.
The existence of this new restaurant was first brought to our attention by Raleigh’s @triangleexplorer in June.
ABC permits are usually obtained within a few weeks of a restaurant opening, so we expect this place should be open soon.
Nice Price Jr. Coming To Oakwood
Nice Price Jr. is coming to Oakwood. Located at 222 N. Bloodworth, the store will be a smaller version of Nice Price Books, which has been on Hillsborough Street for decades.
The News & Observer reported last week that the store’s main focus will be vinyl records, although there will also be books, cassettes, and a “baby bar.” We assume this is a bar that is smaller than a typical bar, and not a bar that caters only to babies.
Nice Price Jr. held their soft opening on Friday. They’ll have their beer bottle shop up and running for the grand opening.
