Where 2 Simmer/Sizzle

Cooking without music is like … well … like a burger without cheese. It’s ok, but the cheese just makes it better. At least for me (for all you who are preparing to disagree.) You can tell a lot about someone by asking them how they dress their burger, what music is playing in their car, and what book they are reading.  

So, open your ears and check out all these places in Chapel Hill, Durham & Carrboro (and beyond) to tickle your senses!

  1. Ahem.. while perusing your blog which I am finding very funny and entertaining.. i wanted to mention that.. on this page, where you list places that I can tickle my senses.. I can’t help but notice that there is a venue missing on your list………………
    love ya anyway though, and enjoying this blog very much!

    • oh, babe … thanks for catching that. When I was updating the site earlier I got an error message and noticed that a couple of the pages were using cached information. I finally abandoned it and decided to come back later. All fixed now, I think. Glad you are enjoying! xoxo
