Winston-Salem

8 Sep

We like minor-league baseball, so when our friends Josh and Adara recently invited us to a Winston-Salem Dash game we were all about it.  The plan was to meet before the game at Foothills Brewing Company . But since we had no other plans that day, and the weather was beautiful, Jason and I decided to wander around historic downtown Winston-Salem for a bit.

I think most folks think of Old Salem when they think of Winston-Salem.  We visited that in April, and really enjoyed it.  However we haven’t met anyone yet who has commented on Winston-Salem’s art district.

Which is a shame, because it’s a really great little area with some fantastic casual restaurants and a few galleries featuring work by local artists.  There’s also this guy:

We had delightful time wandering around, taking in street art and the different architectural textures that come from building new structures around old.  The National Black Theatre Festival was taking place, and the crowds of people celebrating (along with random limousines and red carpets) only added to an already joyful atmosphere.

Sadly, I failed to take any shots of where Jason and I enjoyed lunch – Sweet Potatoes.  Chalk it up to a humongous food coma and lack of proper planning.  Anyway, please forgive me, and make a point of going there when you visit Winston-Salem. You won’t be sorry!

    Love all your photos from downtown Winston-Salem! There are a few here I didn’t recognize – time for a scout! Next time you’re in town, drop by Mundo Tapas for a bite!
