Liberty Street: Find out what the buzz is all about

Liberty Street in downtown Winston-Salem is undergoing quite a transformation.The downtown area, once “sleepy” and known for Wachovia, RJ Reynolds Tobacco Company and Old Salem, is now a hub for new restaurants, breweries, innovation, art and live music events. There is literally something for everyone!

Our marketing director recently planned a “staycation” for herself and a friend who was in town for 24 hours for a birthday getaway. Here’s what they did with their time on Liberty:

  1. Lunch at Willow’s Bistro. Willow’s is located on South Liberty Street in an old railway freight warehouse. The charm of the quirky, historic building combined with delicious dishes composed from locally sourced ingredients was a hit.
  2. Checked into a room at The Kimpton Cardinal Hotel. “The Cardinal” is housed in the former RJR headquarters building on Main Street. This grand building replete with art deco designs was the inspiration for the Empire State Building in NYC, however, it’s not “stuffy.” After checking out their well-appointed room, the friends had fun exploring the lower level of the hotel and bowled, played table shuffleboard and even went down a slide! The experience was taken to stratosphere when the hotel sent decadent chocolate cake and champagne to the room in honor of the birthday girl.
  3. Dogwood Hops and Crops on North Liberty was next on the list. The “bottle shop” offers beer and wine and is a fun spot for a quick drink.
  4. Next on the “Liberty Street” list – Wise Man Brewing. Wise Man is simply FUN. The staff are extremely friendly and knowledgeable and eager to share information about their beer. It’s dog friendly too! The casual vibe of this place immediately puts you in “relax” mode.
  5. Moving on from Wise Man, the duo made their to Mission Pizza Napoletana to meet friends. It’s tradition for the three “Winston-based” ladies to order the wood-fired cauliflower with goat cheese and balsamic. So whoever arrives first knows to get that order in! Of course, pizza was on the agenda and theirs are incredibly unique and delicious.

After dinner, the friends headed back to the “The Cardinal” to relax and “get their beauty sleep.” There are already plans for another exploration underway.

Summer Home Maintenance

Home Maintenance Projects You’ll be Glad You Did This Summer!

  1. Plan the Deck or Patio Project.

How do you use your outdoor space? How do you WISH you used your outdoor space? Think about how you want to experience outdoor living and create a wish list of areas that you will enjoy now and will also add value to your home.

  1. Focus on your windows.

It’s time to invest in new windows to keep out the cold in winter and minimize heat in the summer or to just expand your views all around!

  1. Shade, shade, shade.

Steamy days can leave your patio and barbecue areas a little neglected so plant new trees in strategic places that will provide great natural shade later.

  1. Winter is coming.

Maintenance projects are best done in the summer months because it’s a less intrusive time to you and your family so refinish hardwood floors, update exterior paint, power wash exterior areas, perform any lawn and garden projects and install a new roof now.

  1. Repaving or resurfacing driveways and sidewalks.

Pave or concrete driveways in summer months when there are no freezing temps to delay work and you’ll get better adhesion.

  1. Refinish outdoor surfaces.

Painting or staining a wooden deck will not only protect it, but it will make it look new and well-maintained so do the work now and enjoy it immediately.

7. Evaluate current landscaping and lighting.

Remove dead or outdated shrubs or planting. If you have an irrigation system (or are ready to commit to watering yourself), fill in those perennial beds and shrubs now. Use a critical eye and evaluate areas that need outdoor lighting. Do you have dark deck stairwells? Add some solar powered step lights. Highlight the architectural features of your home with an spotlights and you’ll enjoy the shadows they cast all year. Find more here:
