Wine & Beer Walk comes to Glenwood South

Mark your calendar for Sept. 21 for a drinking tour of Glenwood South’s restaurants and bars.

The event will be 1-6 p.m. Tickets cost $15 each or $25 for two people. Folks check in by 3 p.m., receive a Wine & Beer Walk identification and a map of participating establishments. At each location, patrons can receive two samples of a specially selected wine or beer. Tickets are available at etix.com or goo.gl/Y56rgH.

This is the first of a series of events being put on by the Glenwood South Merchants Association and Chris Andrews, who does similar events in Wilmington. Other wine and beer walks will be planned and a car show is scheduled for May.

County Stadium track open to walkers, temporarily

Those who've peppered Durham Recreation about using the track at Durham County Memorial Stadium now have what they've been asking for — at least for a while. Citizens of Durham can utilize the track between the hours of noon and 2:30 p.m. on Thursdays through Aug. 15.

Walk, don't run (to the Triangle Arthritis Walk)

Tags: event | run | walk

Love the idea of getting out and moving for a good cause, but posses a pair of knees that aren't so charitable? Check out the Triangle Arthritis Walk scheduled for April 18. The walk is part of Let's Move Together, a new campaign by the Arthritis Foundation intended to help folks ward off or treat arthritis. (Fact: About 46 million Americans — 1 in 5 of us — suffer from arthritis.)

And talk about user friendly, the Triangle Arthritis Walk is billed as  "family-friendly, dog-friendly." There'll be a kids carnival, health fair, snacks and prizes; a performance by The Bouncing Bulldogs (jump ropers extraordinaire); demonstrations of yoga and Tai Chi for folks with arthritis; and, perhaps best of all, if you can't do the whole three-mile walk, there's a one-mile option. No, wait, even better: It has a sleep-in friendly start time of 10 a.m. Participants must raise a minimum of $25 (that scores your a T-shirt!). The walk is at the Imperial Center in Durham.

Exercising your right, II

Tags: bike | run | vote | walk

A little full disclosure here: Despite my grand pronouncement earlier today that you walk or run or bike to the polls to exercise your right to vote, I ended up driving. It was raining, I feared that if I showed up soaking wet I might drip on the voting machine, which might short it out, which might cause red flags to go up with the Wake County elections officials, which, especially in the case of close races, might create a Florida scenario, which might keep us from truly knowing who we elected to office.

So I did my patriotic duty by driving and staying dry. (I am, however, considering riding my bike to get my free donut and coffee.)
