Spring/Summer Events Planning

Spring in here in Golden Belt & Summer Sounds Appealing!

Well we have been out of the loop, but nothing like a good birthday to spark that ‘things to do’ planning bug. With plenty of activities to choose from, all around and downtown we should all get out and enjoy. We are headed to checkout some of them tonight.

For today alone- here’s a link. There’s too many to list.

Two New Neighbors Bikram Yoga Durham studio & Dogstar Tattoo

Dogstar Tattoo &  Bikram Yoga Durham studio will be joining us in East Durham signing lease with Scientific Properties @ the Golden Belt Campus.

With the new FREE  Bull City Connector Bus (sponsored by the city of Durham and Duke University) running every 15 mins weekdays Monday- Saturday every 15 minutes from 7am-6pm weekdays, and every 20 minute the rest of the time, Traffic should start to pick up in the neighborhood. Hopefully enticing a restaurant to forge ahead and make Golden Belt home. Even though the Cotton Room and Mobile Caters have been great, it would be nice to have something more readily available.

BULL CITY CONNECTOR ROUTE – running through Downtown Durham, from Golden Belt  on East Main St. heading west through downtown, past Brightleaf Square and Ninth Street until turning up Erwin Rd. and terminating on Trent Dr. near Duke South.
