born and raised in this state.  grew up in the western end and i now live on the eastern side (Raleigh area).  i don't know what "Central North Carolinian barbecue" is.  Lexington style is considered the mix of Eastern and Western style.

Eastern style being pepper and vinegar.  Western is thick, sweet, dark red, tomato based and is superior.

Comment by Mongoose on June 19, 2015 at 8:33am

Well, when I moved here to North Carolina, I was skeptical. I didn't think it would be good. I thought it strange. Never thought it would be tolerable. I thought, "How can this be done without thick sauce?" However... I have to admit that I have grown to truly love Central North Carolinian barbecue.

Hey, for those of y'all somewhat near Greensboro, this is a Choir I'm in. This is our annual fundraiser.

This is a GREAT way to score some megapoints with the spouse!!!!  Seriously!!!

Comment by Larry on August 30, 2013 at 12:47am

Moving to Texas. I would *not* leave the mountains of Western North Carolina and move to the FLATLANDS unless God said to move!  My son and my daughter, and their spouses, will still be here, so I'll have ties to NC!

Hey guys. Check out "Music in the Streets" on Main street in Washington. The street gets blocked off from traffic and local musicians and entertainers set up live all up and down the street and perform. It's a lot of fun and you'll see some amazing talents on display. The first one this year will April 13th and the music starts around 6 P.M.

How to Friendzone like a Gentleman?

Looking for some advice, or similar experiences from others here.  Sorry for the cheesy content.Just a little background, some of my friends are trying to set me and another friend of mine up. She's a very nice girl and I enjoy hanging out with her, but I just don't feel attracted to her in a romantic way.  At first I didn't do much about it, thinking that they would eventually get the point that I wasn't interested (I really didn't think that she had any feelings either).  Now it's to the…See More
