A Farewell to Winston-Salem

Today is my last day in Winston-Salem for a while. This has been a great week of time with family and friends in some fun and unique W-S spots. I've decided that if I did a limited-time themed blog, it would be about all the cool, random things there are to see and do (and eat) in W-S! Here's some of the highlights of the week...

Kevan and Thomas and I went to the downtown theater, Aperture, for a show and then ran up all the levels of the Cherry Street parking deck to get a good view of the city skyline.

Laura F. and Katie and I went to "Breakfast Of Course," which I had just recently been introduced to by Ellen... it was so good I had to go back! Local flavor, trendy atmosphere, good conversation.

We managed to get a group picture of the Game Night crew, which meets at Laura W.'s place and it the most "happening" biweekly event that doesn't involve nightclubs for 20-somethings in this town.

And probably the epitome of Winston-Salem to-dos is Dewey's Bakery. Leigh Ann and Kristin and I went there for coffee and dessert. I got the classic Moravian sugar cake... which I normally only eat at Christmas time. I also bought a tin of Moravian sugar cookies to take back and share with my Indiana friends next week.

In addition, I went to Shallowford Square to see "Children of Eden," put on by the Westside Civics Theatre, and ate Laura W. at "4th Street Filling Station." Mom and Kevan and I also went down to Myrtle Beach, but I will save that for another entry, since it's not really in Winston-Salem at all... :)

Leaving for Fort Wayne in the morning. Pray for mom and I as we drive to be safe and alert and make good time. I'm glad I got to see as many of you as I did, and I'm sad I missed those of you who... I missed. I will see you in December, when I come home for a North Carolina Christmas. Until then, farewell Winston-Salem!

  1. You ate Laura??? ;-)

    I'm going to miss you, friend. Know that you'll be in my prayers while you're in Indiana, and I look forward to reading more updates. I'm glad I got to see you before you left! Come visit soon!
