Person Street Pharmacy celebrates 100 years

Person Street Pharmacy opened the doors to its cafe this week. Former Market owner and chef Chad McIntyre is running the cafe, so you know the food is going to be amazing!

Ashley Christensen's latest venture, Death & Taxes, opens to the public this week. The restaurant, at 105 Hargett St. in downtown Raleigh, is named for the two previous tenants of the building (a funeral home and a bank), and much of the cooking will be done over a wood-fired stove. It is the first of Christensen's restaurants to take online reservations.

Congrats to Humdinger Juice, which opened its Humdinger Hub in north Raleigh on Departure Drive this week. The space is also where they produce the juice. Now you can go in and buy it on-site. Previously, you had to get their delicious juices delivered or buy it at a local retailer. Try the Calm juice - it has some maple syrup in it.

Diced Gourmet Salads and Wraps has opened at 1377 Kildaire Farm Road in Cary. This locally owned business serves up a variety of dishes including the BBQ Chop and Spicy Thai.

Bowl of Pho has opened at 2806 S. Miami Blvd. in Durham, Triangle Food Guy reports.

Neighborhood Bottle Shop in Cary will hold its grand opening celebration on July 11. It is located at 1341 Kildaire Farm Road.

The big food truck event of the weekend is the Durham Central Park Food Truck Rodeo, Sunday from noon to 4 p.m.

Another great place for foodies: the Fresh Catch Festival, Saturday in Moore Square. Tickets are $8 in advance and do not include food and beverage served inside. There will be some great food though – fresh cooked seafood, BBQ and food trucks – along with live music and an art market.
