News from the 'hood

Durham County broke ground last week for a new courthouse. Eleven stories. $75 million. Just around the corner from the Durham Bulls Athletic Park! The grand building will open in the fall of our neighborhood further improves! Click here for details from the Herald-Sun.

Meanwhile, Tobacco Road Sports Cafe - overlooking left field at the DBAP - will open in April. Check out their blog...including a great photo of the restaurant atop the outfield wall.

I took these pictures last week. Since then, the entry has been finished and the patio awning is complete.

Take a look at their menu. You will understand why this is a sports cafe as opposed to a sports bar. Let's call it cuisine sportif.
