10 Date Places in Raleigh NC

*hint hint*


With there being a somewhat romantic holiday right around the corner, I know everyone is going to be looking for some date destinations. Raleigh, North Carolina has a plethora of night life and activities to take advantage of. Here are my favorite date spots, a collection of activities and meals that you can both romantically and platonically.

Oakwood Cafe

The menu at this quaint little dive consists of Argentinian and Cuban food. Their salted plantains and the tres leches cake is to die for. A hidden gem in downtown Raleigh for sure.

NC Museum of Art

There is a little park outside and the inside is full of modern, antique, and original art. Plus there's free admission coif you're trying to impress your date or your friends on a budget this is a for sure thing!

Lafayette Village

This cute little shopping center has countless dining options, beer, wine, and an atmosphere to boot! The streets are lined with cobblestones and the buildings are quaint with little awnings. It is a little slice of a European village right here in Raleigh.

First Friday (Pretty much all of downtown)

The first Friday of every month, there are art shows and food trucks all through downtown. This is a great date night idea if you're looking for an eclectic night out.

Warehouse District

Home to brick establishments, such as CAM, the Warehouse district has so many innovative and cute places to wander in and out of. A lazy day date idea for sure.

Morgan Street Food Hall

I am a sucker for a food hall and luckily for me, Raleigh is full of them! Morgan Street food hall has everything from crepes to sushi to burritos to Indian to ice cream. Anything and everything you could possibly want is under one roof.

Cameron Village

Shopping date? I think yes. There are so many little boutiques and consignment stores and literally everything in this place. Carolina Cafe is a must try.

Jubala Coffee on Hillsborough Street

Bubble waffles and lattes galore. I love studying here with my friends so why not set a study date here??

Concert at Red Hat

A variety of different artists play here so there's got to be something for everyone.

Two Rooster Ice Cream

One of my favorite places in all of Raleigh, they have a few year round flavors but most of them rotate seasonally. It truly is some exquisite ice cream (and they get a few extra points from me for being owned by an NC State alum).

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
