Seaboard Wine at High Park Opens

Today is the big day for our friends at Seaboard Wine at High Park. After 33 years in the same location (21 as Seaboard Wine and 12 as Simple Pleasures’ warehouse), they are now open in their new home at High Park Village on Whitaker Mill Road.

The store will be open regular hours Monday – Friday 10:00 am – 7:00 pm, Saturday 10:00 am – 6:00 pm, and Sunday 12:00 pm – 6:00 pm. Their tasting bar will tentatively re-open Monday 7/23. More updates can be found at and Facebook (@seaboardwine), Twitter (@seaboardwine) and Instagram (@seaboard_wine).

Also, congratulations to Lisa Jeffries for being the first customer! She’s been tracking the progress and shared the first ever inside look with us. History was made today.



NC State Tailgating Takes an L

In April, we reported that the Trinity and TX parking lots on Trinity Road, renowned for their popular tailgating at NC State football games, would one day be replaced with a luxury student housing complex. That day has come.

Over the last few months, many NC State fans put out yard signs that read “Save the parking lots!” in hopes that the development would be stopped. In a show of solidarity, some fans even met in the empty parking lots to eat Bojangles’ tailgate specials paired with Coors Light and listen to pregame speeches.

Despite their best efforts, final sitework permits were issued last week for The Station at 4200 Trinity Road. The project was  described in the preliminary site plan as a 3-story apartment complex of 174 units (12 one bedroom, 4 three bedroom, and 158 four bedroom) located in 21 buildings, and accompanied by 729 parking spots.

Developer Landmark Properties is behind the project, along with many other luxury student apartments across the country. If The Station is similar to their other projects, and we assume it is, students can expect amenities such as a gaming lounge, golf simulator, resort-style pool, outdoor terrace, fitness facility, meeting rooms, a clubhouse, and… printing!

It’s sad to see the loss of such a great piece of tailgating real estate. On the bright side, college football is only 39 days 7 hours 2 minutes and 16 seconds away.


Condos Planned for North State Street

Five Horizons Development, a local firm that’s also behind the 10 Arros project on New Bern Avenue, has filed plans for a new condominium development on North State Street.

Tentatively titled the North State Street Condos, the project will offer 30 one-bedroom units and a total of 33 parking spaces.

The three-story building will comprise a total of 78,148 square feet, take up .64 acres of impervious surface area, and provide 3,620 square feet of open space. We’re not sure what kind of amenities the new condos will offer, but we’ll be sure to keep you posted with any future developments.

Reliving the Village Subway

The City of Raleigh Museum (COR) kicked off “The Underground: Photographs of Raleigh’s Music Scene 1976-1985” last weekend. The photography exhibit will let visitors experience the music scene of of the iconic Village Subway, once located beneath Cameron Village.

As everyone from Raleigh knows, the Village Subway housed everything from music venues, bars, and shops. Photographer Chris Seward has some incredible shots of the Village Subway’s spectacular music scene.

The exhibit will be open from now until December 2018.

Shuckin’ Shack Oyster Bar Coming to McNeill Pointe

Permits were recently issued for Raleigh’s first location of The Shuckin’ Shack Oyster Bar at McNeill Pointe. McNeill Pointe is currently under construction and is located  just across the street from Mami Nora’s restaurant.

The Shuckin’ Shack has locations stretching from Maryland to South Carolina, with one in Durham and two (two!) in Cary. Although it specializes in seafood, the restaurant also offers meals more suited to landlubbers, including chicken wings and mini corn dogs.

When complete, McNeill Pointe will comprise a total of four buildings and over 30,000 square feet of space for office, retail, and restaurant uses.

Deco Raleigh Moves Into New Space

Deco Raleigh, a gift store and gallery that carries work from local artisans and makers, has moved. Fortunately, they didn’t move far. Previously located at 19 West Hargett Street, the store moved just a few feet away to 207 South Salisbury Street.

Two Roosters Coming to Person Street Plaza

Two Roosters Ice Cream is coming to Person Street Plaza. They’ll be taking over the location that housed Lumina Clothing.

According to their Instagram post, Two Roosters will be doing a pop-up space during the summer and will close for the winter to work on renovations.
