Andrea got a preview of Fig & Honey on Monday night at their soft opening. Look for this new Chatham County eatery (located in the Harris Teeter shopping center, not far from Briar Chapel) to officially open its doors on Oct. 27. The grilled cheese with fig preserves and bacon was delicious, as was the creamy carrot soup with cilantro! The restaurant will also serve breakfast biscuits, grit bowls, falafel, kabobs and burgers. And they have a glass case full of hummus, pasta salad, fruit salad and roasted veggies.

Last Sunday brought thousands of people downtown to West Franklin Street for the 42nd annual festival. We saw amazing performances from local music groups, browsed handmade goods from area artisans and checked out booths like the North Carolina LEGO User Group and their huge UNC Bell Tower made from, you guessed it, LEGOs. See our slideshow from Sunday for more photos.
