A Visit to the Raleigh Rum Company in Raleigh NC...

A couple of weeks ago Cindy and I decided to go on an adventure.  I searched the internet for things to do and came across the Raleigh Rum Company in Raleigh NC.  They have free tastings and tours every Saturday so off we went.  

If you asked me what I know about rum, the answer would be next to nothing.  The only thing I do know is that I love tropical drinks that contain rum.  

Here is a quote from their website....
"Born of our love for craft beer and cocktails; we marveled at all of the amazing craft beer in NC.  However, in January 2014 we looked around at the liquor shelf and couldn't find nearly as many options for the liquor end. So we decided to help fix that and Raleigh Rum Company was born."


 Tours and tastings every Saturday at 2pm.  It is free.  Click here for details and directions.

 We were treated to drinks and a mini lesson on the workings of the stills and the history of the Rum Company.
We had a great time at the Raleigh Rum Company.  
If you have a free Saturday I suggest you check it out.  
So now when I want a taste of the tropics I will head over, buy a bottle of rum and make myself a tropical drink.  Yum!
Get out and have some fun.

One place Gale and I knew we had to visit was the bakery in Old Salem.  I have enjoyed the Moravian cookies over the years but everyone has told me I had to try the sugar cake.

A bit of history....






The sugar cake was amazing.  We took it back to our room and enjoyed the yummy sweetness in front of the beautiful fireplace in our room.  We also shared a bottle of local wine.  What a lovely day:-)

A Visti to Rye Bar and Southern Kitchen in Raleigh NC

It has been a while since I have visited a new restaurant.  I did a google search and came up with Rye Bar and Southern Kitchen in Raleigh NC.  Sounded wonderful so I called Cindy and off we went on a restaurant adventure.  Here is a quote from their website.... "A refined take on traditional Southern cuisine. That's the essence of Rye Bar & Southern Kitchen, our onsite restaurant in the heart of Raleigh's vibrant downtown. Executive Chef Michael Rigot's seasonal menus feature the freshest, healthiest produce and meats, all from local North Carolina farms. A main dining room, private dining room, and outdoor patio provide an abundance of seating options. Craft beers, uncommon cocktails, and premium wines head the liquid refreshment line-up."
The restaurant itself is located in downtown Raleigh in Raleigh Marriott City Center. The Bar was lovely.  The night we were there it was packed.  Lively place to be. They brought this lovely platter to our table, they call i…

A Visit to Beautiful Lake Lure in North Carolina

I have lived in North Carolina since the early 90's.  I had heard of Lake Lure but have not taken the time to visit until now.  I don't know why I waited so long.  It is beautiful. I will share some of my photos and some tidbits I found online...

A bit of history....
In 1925, the Morse family created Carolina Mountain Power Company and funded the construction of a dam on the Broad River (through a mortgage) which produced the lake after which the town is named. The full impoundment of Lake Lure was completed in 1927.

I decided the best way to see the lake was to venture out onto the lake.  You can take a pontoon boat ride with Lake Lure Tours, and that is just what I decide to do.  It takes about an hour, and you have a cruise on the lake and learn a bit about the Lake Lure and its history.
There are houses of all shapes and sizes on the lake. Lovely views from the pontoon boat... The Lake Lure area has been used several times as a filming location, beginning with Thu…
