Our Latest Obsessions: Sunrise, Sky Blue and Salt and Smoke

Our Latest Obsessions: Sunrise, Sky Blue and Salt and Smoke

We celebrated fall and UNC Homecoming, went to the movies and looked ahead to the holidays.


We’re always doing a little bit of everything around town these days. Click through our photos to see what we’ve been up to recently!

1Salt and Smoke

It was a beautiful fall day and a beautiful celebration of fall in the South. Acme’s third annual Salt and Smoke on Sunday afternoon at the picturesque Rock Quarry Farm featured oysters, barbecue, live music and a bonfire.

2Sky Blue

Tailgating is always better with a Carolina Brewery beer! Amanda went with the classic Sky Blue before the UNC football game on Saturday.

3UNC vs. Duke

Carolina’s beat-down of Duke on Saturday was an experience that will stay with Amanda for a lifetime. Go Heels!

4Chapel Hill Creamery

We spotted Chapel Hill Creamery cheese a long way from home! Star Provisions, a speciality food store in Atlanta, has good taste.

5Holiday cookies

Two words: holiday cookies. Look for recipes from community baking experts in our December issue, with beautiful photography by Briana Brough.

6Priceless Gem tour

Campus tours aren’t just for prospective students! Ginny tagged along on one of the Friday afternoon Priceless Gem tours and Briana was there to capture all the action on the history-based tour. (Want to go on one? There are two left in November!)

7Silverspot Cinemas

Jessica’s toured Silverspot a few times for work and finally took in a movie at the new theaters. Reserved seats + prosecco during the movie + the new James Bond flick = a good time!


All the recent wet weather has us craving comfort food. For Jessica, that means chicken biscuits at Sunrise!
