MAKING A LIST, CHECKING IT TWICE

I

I’M READY FOR QUALITY TIME WITH MY FAMILY, baking up a storm and binge-watching shows and movies. I’ll head home to Virginia at the end of the month for some much-needed R&R, but until then, I plan to take advantage of all the town celebrations that I can. We’ve rounded up the most festive events – from cooking classes and shopping to parades and concerts – in our holiday checklist on page 46. Here’s where you’ll find me this month: • Shopping at The Carolina Inn’s Sunday afternoon markets for the perfect presents. There’ll be doughnuts, caramel apples, s’mores and hot chocolate as well! • Attending the annual Chapel Hill-Carrboro Holiday Parade. I haven’t sat on the sidewalk watching all the bands, organizations and floats since my freshman year at UNC. • Being Santa to a senior. For the past few holiday seasons, I’ve bought gifts for seniors as part of Home Instead Senior Care’s Be a Santa to a Senior program. That means visiting a participating business around town, picking a name or two off their tree and returning a few days later with some items off their wishlist. It just felt good to shop for cozy slippers and scarves and to imagine the recipients enjoying them. (At press time, The UPS Store on Fordham Boulevard, K & W Cafeteria, Starbucks on Franklin Street and the Seymour Center were participating – find more information at beasantatoasenior.com.) • Sipping a hot toddy. I’ve got fond memories of finishing up my last final of the semester at UNC and trudging along Franklin Street in the cold with a classmate to Carolina Brewery for something to warm us up – nothing does that quite like Kahlúa & hot chocolate. Maybe when my last issue for the year goes to press …

• Ringing in the new year with my best friend. I’ll be back in town just in time for the ball drop and to show off Orange County to my pal who lives out west. I wish you joyful holidays and a happy and healthy 2019! CHM

chef’s table Kevin Callaghan Acme

At Acme, for all of 2018, we decided to put our fundraising efforts right onto our menu. We partnered with the great people at the Be Loud! Sophie Foundation by putting a “Chocolate and Charity” dessert on our menu along with the usual array of indulgences. Chocolates we make are boxed and sealed with a Be Loud! sticker that is brought out to the table and presented as a present – basically a gift for a gift. The guests who order the “Chocolate & Charity” also get a cool decal to put on their car or laptop or wherever and 100% of the money that we take in goes directly to the foundation. Our belief is that the strong local ties which link Acme and Be Loud! then extend to our guests night after night and help shape the shared values that underlie authentic community. The 65,000+ people that dine with us this year not only get a chance to donate to this cause we care so much about, but also simply to learn about the profound work being done right here in this great town where we live. Teddy Diggs Coronato

As a chef, I give in our communities whenever I can. You can often find me providing support to charitable causes and fundraising efforts. As a family, we give meals, clothes and money to people in need – especially around the colder holiday months.

looking forward to using Coronato to help people in our community whether that be with job employment or with financial and food support for local groups such as TABLE and the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina. Jim Wald Glasshalfull Tony [Del Sarto] and I feel it’s important to give

back to the community not just at the holiday season but throughout the year. We started Dine For A Cause two years ago, donating 10% of sales to one charity one day per week. We have since added another day and five more charities. We currently partner with UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, Piedmont Health, Orange County Literacy Council, PORCH, Dispute Settlement Center and UNC Horizons to help them achieve their goals. Hopefully we will be able to add more days and more charities in the future. Tony and I feel we should be the change we seek. Brandon Roberts MidiCi

During the holiday season, we will be taking a percentage of our sales and donating to two different organizations and that is the Wounded Warrior Project and the Ronald McDonald House. We believe it’s a good thing to do, and we want to be a part of the community and support other people who might not be as fortunate during the holiday season. CHM

‘Chapel Hill gravel.’ I would like to walk down Franklin Street in 1961 again,” says Marsha, poet, novelist and champion for North Carolina’s writers. Since 1987, Marsha has built and served North Carolina’s writers, transforming the isolated lifestyle lived by most wordsmiths into a thriving, supportive community of poets and authors from the mountains to the coast. As a result of her vision and leadership at the North Carolina Writers’ Network (NCWN), Marsha was inducted recently into the North Carolina Literary Hall of Fame. “It was a tremendous surprise,” Marsha says about the honor she received on her 80th birthday. “I thought, ‘Why in the world was I inducted into the North Carolina Literary Hall of Fame? This is for writers.’ Indeed, I write, but I’m not a well-published writer,” she says. “So I had to say to myself, ‘I bet you, in the football hall of fame, they may also have coaches.’ Then I started feeling better, because I’ve been kind of a coach.” Marsha, a charter member and the director of the NCWN in its early years, helped grow the network to include more than 1,800 writers. She pointed to some of her team’s top accomplishments over the decades: increasing the number of AfricanAmerican writers in the network from 11 to hundreds and including incarcerated North Carolinians in the network through The Prison Pen

Pals. The network’s prison work is supported now by the Paul Green Foundation, directed by Marsha, through the program Hidden Voices. The foundation also supports Student Action with Farmworkers’ Theatre in the Fields’ annual summer program for migrant workers in eastern North Carolina. Today, the NCWN continues to grow under the direction of Ed Southern. “North Carolina writers love each other. We have a strong heritage,” says Marsha, who is currently writing a novel for young adults. At her dining room table overlooking Morgan Creek, her favorite writing spot in Chapel Hill, she crafts stories about two adventurous girls, Josie and Moriah, inspired by time spent at her grandmother’s house and farm in Ohio. When a friend recently asked her how her book was coming along, Marsha admitted that she couldn’t seem to fit her writing into her busy life. “She stopped me, looked me straight in the eye and told me that I had it backward,” Marsha recalls. “She says, ‘No, Marsha. How are you going to fit your life into your writing?’ “That’s a super hard choice. You’ve got housework, children, but ultimately you do what you want to do. I like to cook. I keep talking about finishing my book. So, I have to ask myself – what am I going to give up in order to write?” “As writers, we are very observant. Visual artists see how colors and shapes

go together. As writers, we hear how words and thoughts go together. We are always grabbing something to write it down, to capture that thought on napkins, receipts and bits of paper.” This month, Marsha is busy creating her holiday menus. “We will definitely have an oyster roast. And maybe a crown roast with sausage stuffing,” she says as she glances toward the same dining room table where she writes the rest of the year. “We have to ask ourselves the hard questions. As writers in North Carolina, we have a lot to live up to, you see, because of the strong literary heritage we’ve inherited from North Carolina’s early great writers.” Practicing what she preaches, Marsha will fit her life into her writing over the holidays, simultaneously serving Christmas traditions while tucking words and phrases inside her apron pocket, inspiration captured on bits of paper to unwrap after the holidays. Marsha White Warren has been married to David Warren for 59 years. They have three children, Doug, Amy and Jeff, five grandchildren, Lucky, a border terrier mix rescue from Chatham County, and Josie, a rescue cat from Ohio. CHM

WHAT THEY DO Google is a technology company that specializes in Internet-related services and products, which include online advertising technologies, search engine, cloud computing, software and hardware. The Chapel Hill office is primarily made up of software and hardware engineers focused on Google’s Android and Chrome operating systems and devices. WHY THEY LOVE IT HERE Chapel Hill is home for us. I’ve built multiple companies here. One of them happened to be acquired by Google, and when they asked if I wanted to move to the company’s headquarters in Mountain View, I proposed we build an office here in Chapel Hill instead. We’ve built our office from four people to more than 40 based on the amazing talent that’s attracted to this community. LOCATION BENEFITS We love being in the heart of this unique community.

many great companies, big and small, that call Chapel Hill home. There’s a strong sense of community and innovation here. We can attract and retain the greatest talent because of our close proximity and relationships with the area universities (especially UNC), and our team members want to stay because it is a fantastic place to live. THE COMPANY’S CULTURE Working at Google is fun, but it’s also quite hard. At the Chapel Hill office, we’re playing a small role in ensuring the billions of Chrome and Android devices in the world work for users across a very broad range of uses. So, you’ll see that our team members take their jobs very seriously, but we also recognize the importance of taking a break both independently and as a team. We eat our meals together, we play pool and video games together, and we do outings together as a team. Similarly, we also give back to our community together as a team through initiatives like Google I/O Extended and Google Serve. FAVORITE THING ABOUT THE OFFICE Being on Franklin Street in the heart of one of the most quintessential and exciting college towns in America makes coming to work every day a real pleasure. There are new restaurants opening all the time, new and brilliant students to interact with and a laid-back culture that is a great respite at times. WHERE THEY’LL BE IN FIVE YEARS I hope we’ll continue to grow our office here in Chapel Hill! We just celebrated 20 years of Google Search, and it’s amazing to see how far we’ve come as a company since then. Innovation is at the core of our DNA and will continue to drive us forward for years to come. „

REIN FOUNDED 2015 • RHONDA RODENBAUGH, VP OF ADMIN AND HR • 6,005 SQ. FT. NO. OF CHAPEL HILL EMPLOYEES: 21 137 E. FRANKLIN ST., SUITE 601 ARCHITECT: TEERA GAMES (ALLIANCE ARCHITECTURE)

WHAT THEY DO REIN is an insurtech company whose platform enables the faster creation of more flexible digital insurance products. We empower insurers by developing new ways to derive meaningful insights from insurance-related data and provide better ways to use that data in underwriting. The REIN platform enables companies to unlock new revenue streams by embedding digital insurance products right inside their existing channels, as well as through other online ecosystems. Our easyto-use distribution tools equip users with a proven solution that enables straight through processing and minimizes end to end friction when bringing new digital insurance products to market. LOCATION BENEFITS The atmosphere of Franklin Street is really great. Our staff has really bonded over walking to lunch together and making the important decision of where to go among the many, many choices. Being surrounded by universities, Chapel Hill gives us access to a lot of talent and fresh ideas that we need to scale our business. We’ve had about a dozen interns already from the various area universities, and whether they’ve been with us only on a project basis or for a longer term, the quality of their talent has been a real help to us. THE COMPANY’S CULTURE We’re a fairly close-knit group. We care about the business, but also about each other. We celebrate both our frustrations and our victories together, which leads to a very collaborative and respectful culture. We aren’t afraid to try new things because even if it’s an epic fail, we know we’ll laugh, learn, have sympathetic coworkers and move on to tackle the next challenge. FAVORITE THING ABOUT THE OFFICE The view! Not everyone even knows that there’s a building in the heart of downtown that goes up to a sixth floor. Our view of the treetops and the town are just breathtaking. 40

chapelhillmagazine.com December 2018

A SINGLE DRAWBACK TO THE OFFICE SPACE We’re in a great, newly renovated space, but the building itself is fairly old, so there have been some challenges that come along with an aging building. That said, the building management has been responsive about everything we’ve encountered, and they’re committed to getting the rest of the building renovated soon. BIGGEST CHALLENGE FOR THEIR COMPANY It would have to be the industry that we’re in. Bringing technology into the world of insurance is not an easy task. Our team is hard at work every day to constantly solve the challenges at hand and make insurance solutions an inherent part of their business workflows. WHERE THEY’LL BE IN FIVE YEARS One of the best parts of working in a small, growing company is that it never stays the same for long. REIN will likely have multiple insurance platforms, several new products and exciting developments in the implementation of Artificial Intelligence in insurance underwriting in the near future.

RIVERS AGENCY FOUNDED 1993 • LAUREN RIVERS, FOUNDER/OWNER • 4,500 SQ. FT. NO. OF EMPLOYEES: 44 • 601 W. ROSEMARY ST., SUITE 108 ARCHITECT: PHILIP SZOSTAK (SZOSTAK DESIGN)

WHAT THEY DO Rivers is a full-service advertising agency. We create enduring brands by applying a complete range of integrated marketing and communications solutions. We started out as a small design shop in 1993 and saw an opportunity to grow a client list by committing to overdeliver. We’ve grown organically and now provide high-end custom website design-build, application development, innovative design, print advertising, TV, radio and online media, animation, public relations and social media management. LOCATION BENEFITS The agency sits on the border of Chapel Hill and Carrboro, right between the energy and elegance of the University of North Carolina and the funky music, foodie, free-thinking vibe of Carrboro. You can sense the ambition here. Chapel Hill has grown by leaps and bounds and our client opportunities have as well. Our client roster includes global enterprises, world-renowned academic institutions, entrepreneurial successes, as well as small area businesses and nonprofits. We enjoy doing all of this exciting work and enjoy helping local and global companies grow. THE COMPANY’S CULTURE We like to have fun! We like clear communication and we hire talented, enthusiastic people and encourage them to apply that talent freely. We’re a mix of personalities which you’d expect when you mix together strategic thinkers, expressive designers, insightful writers and laser-focused developers. This is a relationship business. We at the agency are in a relationship as a team, and we come together to build lasting relationships with our clients. We are all very close and happily creating together. FAVORITE THING ABOUT THE OFFICE I love that Phil Szostak’s design features large glass areas and a lot of natural light. That’s important when our folks are spending much of the day coaxing creative magic out into the world. The light gives us energy and a lot of happiness. A SINGLE DRAWBACK TO THE OFFICE SPACE Right now, my only concern is that we might outgrow it! WHERE THEY’LL BE IN FIVE YEARS We encourage and pay for our people to gain new skills, whatever it takes to help people stay fresh and challenged. We’re constantly seeking out and engaging the newest, most promising technologies and examining and assimilating the best practices within the marketing industry and the industries we serve. Things will be different in five years and so will Rivers Agency. That’s a good thing. CHM 42

from Lawrence This fall, nearly 80 members of the community traveled to Lawrence, Kansas, during the Inter-City Visit hosted by the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Chamber of Commerce. During the three days, the group toured arts, startup and athletic facilities and heard from Lawrence leaders about their challenges and triumphs in the community. “Of the 17 years that I’ve been a part of these learning experiences, there are always a few themes that emerge and insights that capture our attention,” says Aaron Nelson, president and CEO of the chamber and executive director of the Partnership for a Sustainable Community. “This year in Lawrence, we saw what’s possible when you think big and work together to achieve a shared vision for a community.” We asked a few participants to share what they learned and what they took back to Chapel Hill.

44

chapelhillmagazine.com December 2018

The Inter-City Visit delegation included Orange County elected officials, business owners, nonprofit directors, UNC officials and more. The trip included visits to the Bioscience & Technology Business Center, Sports Pavilion Lawrence and Rock Chalk Park, among other destinations in town.


I

was impressed with the presence of the arts in Lawrence. Their downtown had many privately owned, arts-based businesses that seemed to be thriving. The Lawrence Arts Center was one of the most impressive arts facilities I’ve ever seen relative to the size of the town. While we have very limited space dedicated to the arts in Orange County, we have a few things that Lawrence, and many other communities, don’t have: a county-funded arts commission, community leaders who understand the importance of the arts and a very large population of working creatives. As the OCAC begins to work with our creative community to address the need for arts space, I think the trip will prove helpful in getting our local leaders on board because it illustrated what could be possible in our community. Katie Murray director, Orange County Arts Commission

T

here is one word to describe our experience in Lawrence. Big! I am not just talking about the size of the facilities, but the depth and breath of the partnerships between the business community, government and university. We experienced that scale as we walked through the Bioscience and Technology Business Center, where new business concepts are brought to life. We enjoyed this scale at the Sports Pavilion Lawrence and Rock Chalk Park, where the university and city partnered for an 180,000-square-foot facility. And we felt this scale at Peaslee Tech and the Lawrence College and Career Center, where lives are changing for the better as young people find their career pathways. Lawrence got us thinking bigger about partnerships, and I am forever grateful. Katie Loovis vice president for external affairs, Chapel Hill-Carrboro Chamber of Commerce

D

owntown Lawrence inspired me in the ways that it, like downtown Chapel Hill, blends the old with the new. One of my favorite parts was the 1888 Watkins Land Mortgage and National Bank Building that had been converted into a museum. Having this cultural asset in their downtown was a draw to visitors, but also a place where locals could take pride in the story of their community. In the museum and in many other cases, Lawrence used their older buildings well, repurposing aging building stock for modern uses. Here in downtown

Chapel Hill, we also benefit from historic buildings that add distinctive charm to a contemporary business district. As downtown’s new entrepreneurial ecosystem grows, we have more opportunities to think of creative ways to blend tradition and innovation and reinforce downtown Chapel Hill as a reflection of our unique community. Elinor Landess interim executive director, Chapel Hill Downtown Partnership

O

ne of the most fascinating aspects of the trip was Lawrence’s commemoration of its history. At The Watkins Museum of History, rooms are packed with exhibits on topics including the town’s emergence during bloody conflicts between pro-slavery and free-state forces and the Watkins family, whose wealth created much of what Lawrence is today. The museum excited me about the possibility of creating a dynamic space in Chapel Hill that commemorates our history. In the past year, the Historic Civil Rights Commemorative Task Force and Chapel Hill Nine Subcommittee have done excellent work in spotlighting some of our rich history during the civil rights movement, and the Chapel Hill Historical Society always stands ready to remember present and past local heroes. Susan Brown, the Chapel Hill Library director, recently reported on the current exploration of museums in other towns celebrating community history and the possibility of using Chapel Hill’s old town hall as such a space. More to come, but I firmly believe that in order to advance as a community, we must know where we have come from. Allen Buansi council member, Chapel Hill Town Council

S

ports Pavilion Lawrence and Rock Chalk Park were amazing facilities that not only generate revenue and provide numerous programming opportunities, but also demonstrate great working partnerships between coordinating organizations/ agencies. The trip to Lawrence made me realize how lucky our residents are to have so many choices in recreation. In addition, many of the facilities and parks in our county are conveniently located so residents and university students can walk or take public transportation. Orange County is fortunate to have numerous great recreational facilities, both public and private, that provide opportunities for citizens of all ages and abilities to recreate.

Making a List, Checking It Twice

A closer look at how The Carolina Inn decks the halls: • Decorating the outside of the Inn began in mid-November. • The interior décor goes up one week later. This includes greenery, lights, poinsettias and the lobby Christmas tree. • The Twelve Days of Christmas decorations went up right after Thanksgiving along with additional Christmas trees, wreaths and seasonal décor in Crossroads Chapel Hill. •

It takes a solid four to five days and more than 10 people on site to get the Inn completely decorated for the season.

Though it’s called the Twelve Days of Christmas, the celebrations of the holidays at The Carolina Inn actually lasts about a month, featuring special menus at Crossroads Chapel Hill, a tap dancing performance, brunch and breakfast with Santa, holiday afternoon tea and so much more.

chapelhillmagazine.com December 2018

Over the years, Vietri artist Alessandro Taddei has painted a lot of different scenes featuring Old St. Nick on the Italian dinnerware – cuddling with a pup on a dog bowl, cooking up a storm on a oval platter and in his sleigh on a platter. Now fans of this festive line can learn all about the jolly man in “The Magic of Old St. Nick – The Adventure Begins,” a new book written by Vietri founder and creative director Susan Gravely and illustrated by Alessandro. “We had so much fun creating the persona of this fellow,” says Susan. “We talked about him being a real outdoorsman.” The book, out just in time to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Old St. Nick dinnerware, dives into the backstory of Old St. Nick where readers learn that he is actually a babbo, a term for ‘father’ in Italy, especially in Tuscany. As Old St. Nick passes the reins to his son, Nick, he shares all the lessons he wants to impart. “Now it’s important for you to always do good deeds and be the best you can be. Help others in need,” Susan says, quoting her protagonist. “Spread your love around the world.” Wrapping up with a glossary of Italian words, the book has a beautiful message about kindness and love that would pair perfectly with milk and cookies. Find the book locally at SOUTH and McIntyre’s Books or at vietri.com.

New Year, New Chef 2019 is going to be a big one for chef Justin Burdett. He takes over the kitchen at Crook’s Corner as only the third-ever chef in the restaurant’s 36-year-old history in January. But this month, he looks forward to serving up classic Crook’s seasonal dishes, like Bill Smith’s corned ham and holiday duck featuring a seared duck breast and a confit leg, served with cranberries, mashed rutabagas and sautéed cabbage and leeks. When he’s not learning the ropes from Bill, Justin might be found making classic dishes at home like turkey and stuffing or getting to know his new surroundings. “I’m still exploring Chapel Hill, and the Crook’s staff is making a list of all the cool, local places to hit for holiday shopping,” Justin says. “There’s still so much I haven’t seen yet.” Meanwhile, he’s planning a spectacular New Year’s Eve dinner at Crook’s. The menu will draw from the repertoire of Bill Neal, Bill Smith and Justin in homage to what has come before and to offer a glimpse into what he has in store for Crook’s in the coming years. CHM

c - a t i on special retreat to supp ort local moms

T’S A DAMP AND CHILLY morning at Rock Quarry Farm, but inside its wide-planked barn, string lights and a flaming heat lamp illuminate the faces of a dozen or so women as they gently ease into yoga poses chosen to help restore their bodies and spirits. The retreat was developed by Alexandra DeSiato and Lauren Sacks, founders of Whole Mama

ABOVE Lauren leads the women in preparing for a widelegged, seated, forward fold. BELOW The women move into a deep squat (or malasana). The hourlong yoga practice touches on motherhood themes – patience, surrender and the need for self-care, along with physical asana to support rest and rejuvenation. Yoga, which provides “yoga,

community and commiseration for all phases of motherhood.” The retreat is a natural extension of the work they already do with pre- and post-natal moms. But they use “post-natal” inclusively – some of the moms here have kids in their teens. Additionally, they’re moving away from their baby years as well. Alexandra is mom to Seraphina, 3, and Lauren has two children, Simon, 7, and Laine, also 3. “Yoga’s gifts to all stages of motherhood include more than movement,” Lauren says. “Breathwork, mantra, meditation, intention-setting and the philosophical tenets of yoga all offer unique support to moms.” 56

chapelhillmagazine.com December 2018

And the retreat provides other thoughtful ways to support mothers. The staycation model allowed participants to sign up for one day, or two days without accommodations, or they could indulge by spending the night at the farm, run by mother-and-son duo Camille and Miles Andrews. Miles’s partner, doula Heather Grissom, even offered her personal support by helping each woman create a special essential oil blend to take home. Hillsborough Spa and Day Retreat, Market Street Coffee and Carolina Yoga Company all donated goodies for the moms in gift bags that also included chocolates, skin care and teas. While the showering of local support made the retreat especially pampering, the mothers felt most nourished just by being with other moms. “The retreat afforded me a committed, safe space and time to connect to myself and others who have had similar experiences to me as moms,” says Francelle Toedtli, who is pregnant with her second child. “It feels like there are very few opportunities for this type of connection in our busy world.” Kate Sayre feels the same way. “Whole Mama Yoga is such a special entity,” she says. “The ability to connect so quickly with women I didn’t know previously was really lovely. We were able to say, ‘Yes, I completely get that!’ and to share things that made us laugh and cry. At the end, we all asked when the next one would be and how we can sign up!” –Virginia Robinson „

chilly morning weather has kept others home, so this class is small, just eight of the usual 15 or so people. It’s 8:45 a.m., and everyone is ready: Julie on the deck in her workout clothes, and swimmers bobbing in the pool in their suits. They’re so eager that they pull the lane lines out of the pool themselves, giving Julie time to chat about why the class is so popular and so good for those who take the plunge one to four times a week. “They’re social, which is part of the benefit of group exercise,” she says of her students, adding with a laugh, “Sometimes they even get too chatty!” „

explains Nancy Buell, who says a friend checked in with her when she once missed two classes in a row. “And it’s so great that it’s right here – you don’t have to go anywhere!” adds Carol Stamm, who moved to The Cedars three years ago and has been taking the class ever since. Today, her husband will play a few rounds of ping-pong while she meets up with her water aerobics crew. Today’s workout is inspired by the alphabet: A for abdominals, B for big steps, C for crab walks. Julie mixes up the workouts and is careful to explain modifications that make the class accessible to everyone. The water itself is a huge part of this – because of their buoyancy, many members can do as many as 50 jumping jacks in the pool. Like a true teacher, Julie also connects what they do in the pool to their lives outside of it. “She was very clear that holding in [your abdominal muscles] protected your back,” Nancy says, “and so now, when I’m holding my grandchild, I do that.” Just like the sparkling blue water they’re in, the joys of the class are clear. “45 minutes of exercise lifts their spirits,” says Julie. “There’s a lot of laughter as they exit the pool and head for the hot tub!” –Virginia Robinson „

BOTTLE REV’S CLUB GIVES RUNNERS, INCLUDING VETERANS, A REASON TO EXERCISE AND SOCIALIZE

F YOU WALKED INTO BOTTLE Rev on October 18, you would’ve seen a number of people drinking a beer. Well, almost everyone actually – just not Jim Krug. Jim turned 51 the week before and to mark the occasion, he gave up alcohol for 51 weeks. So, what was Jim doing standing at the bar on the first chilly Thursday of fall? Socializing for one, but he was also there for Bottle Rev’s running club. Co-owner Lewis Hendricks and his business partner, Julie Paddison, opened Bottle Rev, a bottle shop for craft beer and wine, in May 2017. A weekly running club sprung up not long after they opened their doors. “I was part of the military and I was getting out,” Lewis says. “I wanted to do something – open a business. I know the beer side of things, but I didn’t know the wine side. I knew I wanted to do wine, so I had to find a business partner who was Julie. She’s the one with the wine certifications. She’s a triathlete and I’m a runner… and so having the club is just a neat kind of community thing.” Jim is a veteran, too. He was in the Army for seven years and left right before Desert Storm in 1992. Now, he’s a part of Team Red, White & Blue (Team RWB), a national organization that aims to get

veterans connected to the community. “At the time that we started coming to this run, I was the [Team RWB] chapter captain,” Jim says. “We didn’t have anything for our veterans in Chapel Hill, so we said, ‘Let’s get something going out there.’ So we started showing up at this run from day one.” He even got Lewis to join Team RWB. And now almost a year and a half later, even though he’s no longer the chapter captain, Jim is still running (or walking, depending on the day) with the club. He actually participates in three other running clubs but especially enjoys the community he’s found at Bottle Rev. “You’ve got two different groups – Team RWB and Carolina Godiva Track Club – here that actually form this running club, and then you’ve got stragglers as well. But everybody that’s in the other run club, they’re really great people. That’s who I was talking to over here,” Jim says as he points to two guys at the bar. “We always push each other harder.” At the beginning of each run on Thursday, Lewis rallies all the runners outside in front of the shop to give a little pep talk and introduce the guest brewer of the week – this week’s was Mark Gibb from Gibb’s Hundred Brewing Company in Greensboro. You really get a sense of the camaraderie

as everyone squeezes together on the sidewalk – even the “stragglers” like Emily Nicolai and Scott Hemingway. They’re out-of-state transplants who discovered the Bottle Rev running club on their drive home from work – they live only a mile down the road. The club has given them an incentive to meet new people, sweat a little and try new beers afterward. “I like the structure of it versus other running clubs,” Emily says. “People may or may not show up. Different groups leave at different times. It’s not one uniform group. I love how before each run, he gets all of us together to hear [from] this week’s brewer and makes it a really fun event and something that you want to do. “If Scott and I don’t catch each other on the same week, I’m like, ‘That’s OK, I’m happy to run with whoever.’” Everyone else is content as well: Scott, who was not a runner, completed his first half-marathon this fall; Jim still runs even without the appeal of beer afterward; and Lewis even invited some of the club to his wedding. “Thursday’s just the run,” says Lewis. “But every night it seems like a group from the club is meeting up again to just grab a beer. After seeing these same people, now they’re friends.” –Hannah Lee CHM

NOW TRENDING WHAT WE’RE SEEING THIS YEAR FROM BUILDERS FEATURED IN THE PARADE OF HOMES

BY KARA PIT TMAN

chapelhillmagazine.com December 2018


FAR LEFT The board-andbatten siding on this Blue Heron Signature home in Colvard Farms is a trendy exterior look.

T’S NOT EVERY DAY YOU CAN jump in the car and go see more than 20 homes in the area to discover the latest trends and designs in homebuilding. But, luckily, I can and do! As a local Realtor and owner of Terra Nova Global Properties, I’ve been in the Durham, Orange and Chatham market selling homes for 20 years now. While most folks have to wait for the Parade of Homes every October, I make it my job to see homes nearly every day. I also help clients prep their homes for sale or give advice to friends on paint colors and cabinet choices. I’ve built and renovated nearly a dozen homes on the side and look forward to doing more in the future. „

TOP RIGHT The kitchen of this house also features a standalone hood vent and tile set in a stylish pattern. BOTTOM RIGHT The office in this house has a unique light fixture and large windows that both make a bold statement.

Sliding barn doors, like the one in this Briar Chapel home, are a fun and functional way to divide spaces.

But let me tell you, there’s something special about the Parade, which is organized by The Home Builders Association (HBA) of Durham, Orange and Chatham Counties. Builders bring

out their best – their best floor plans, their best subcontractors, their best designers, decorators, you name it. It’s a lively competition among fellow homebuilders to see who ends up a ribbon winner every fall. Even though I’m in and out of houses daily, I also love a Parade! Based on this year’s batch of homes, here’s what’s new and what’s tried-and-true for home building and decorating in 2018. „ Elsewhere in the Briar Chapel house, gold light fixtures and an eye-popping floor make a striking impact.

H O M E S

M O D E R N FA R M H O U S E A glance through the Parade of Homes guide book leaves the impression that builders want to get us back to the farm. Maybe we all need a taste of that seemingly tranquil lifestyle. (But if you’ve ever met a real farmer, they’ll tell you otherwise!) On the inside, homes are forgoing formal spaces like living rooms and dining rooms, and home exteriors are also becoming less formal with these farmhouse-inspired styles. At all price points, we’re seeing larger porches than before. Wide enough for a good day’s porch sitting, Saussy Burbank’s porch in the new South Durham neighborhood, 751 South, wraps around so you can catch up with neighbors on all sides. Board-and-batten siding provides a clean exterior look, reminiscent of farm homes of days past. Blue Heron Signature Homes has mastered this simplistic style on a much larger home

in Durham’s Colvard Farms. Thanks to HGTV and Joanna Gaines’ favorite design feature, inside we’re seeing accents of shiplap throughout many Parade homes this year. J. Fuller Homes went a step further and decked out an entire downstairs bath in shiplap. It’s simple, yet so beautiful. And you can’t miss the sliding barn doors these days. They’re great for pantries and closets. Garman Homes does a great job in setting them off with fun accent colors. You’ll love the smoky blue one found in their Parade home in Chatham’s Briar Chapel. Want to update your own home and add a barn door? Head to Fitch Lumber & Hardware in Carrboro. Believe me, you’ll want quality hardware for this job, and they have one of the best selections of doors around. „

Board and batten was also spotted in the interior of this Blue Heron Signature Homes house in Colvard Farms.

KITCHENS A N D B AT H S What’s new in the kitchen world? White cabinets are still a classic and remain on the scene, but there’s more variety in cabinet color today. Subtle grays are coming on strong. In David Weekley Homes’ Durham townhome in Chapel Run, I found a new icy mint color that was light and airy.

The counter-to-ceiling herringbone tile pattern in this Homes by Dickerson kitchen is both striking and sophisticated.

The kitchen and master bathroom in this David Weekley townhome show the variety in cabinet colors we're seeing today.

Stand-alone hood vents are taking center stage and providing a nice space to show off some creative backsplashes. I saw everything from the now-standard subway tile to marble, herringbone patterns and fun penny tiles. (Best Tile in Durham is a good place to source for your own kitchen or bath!) My new favorite is mixing metals in the kitchen. Black kitchen faucets and drawer pulls stand out in sharp contrast to lighter and whiter countertops. The folks at Wilkinson Supply Co. can help you update your faucets anywhere in the house. „

Even the exterior color on this Homes by Dickerson house in Henderson Place reflects its certified green building design.

E N V I R O N M E N T A L LY F R I E N D LY / H I G H PERFORMANCE Energy and green building codes exist to varying degrees in every U.S. building jurisdiction. Just as traditional building codes are made to ensure homeowner safety, green building and energy codes protect and sustain our environment. Our HBA of Durham, Orange and Chatham Counties does an excellent job of educating its builders and providing avenues for homebuilders to learn more, such as forming the Green Building Council. The name has evolved into the High-Performance Building Council, and they have been integral in helping to shape standards in our industry of what it truly means to be “green.” Nearly 30% of houses entered in the Parade were third-party NGBS Green Certified. Homes by Dickerson has been known in our market for building green for many years now. I fell in love with their home in Chatham’s Henderson Place, which is actually painted green as well. Not only is it built with high performance in mind, the color palette is so subtle and subdued, and I love how it resonates with nature. „

OUTDOOR E N T E RTA I N I N G Going along with that notion of a more relaxed lifestyle, builders are giving us great outdoor spaces to unwind and entertain. I’ve seen more outdoor kitchens this year than ever before. In Corbinton Commons, Hillsborough’s 55 and older community, you’ll find that an outdoor patio with built-in grill is an option. Lucky for those homeowners, the exterior maintenance and landscaping is provided. So all you need is a few friends and some patio furniture. A screened-in porch tops my wish list, as I love to be outside nearly year-round. Lennar has a screened porch with a double-sided fireplace in Durham’s Valley Springs, perfect for outdoor dining and napping, even in the colder months. „

Sometimes all you need to update your space is a new light fixture (start your search at Pine State Electric!) or a fresh coat of paint. If you’re not in the market for one of these dream homes on the Parade, maybe these trends have inspired you to create a similar look in your own home. The question is: Are you bold enough to try something new?

An eye-catching light fixture like the one in this Henderson Place dining room can make all the difference when updating a space.

WINNER WINNER CHICKEN DINNER At the 28th annual A Tasteful Affair in October, the following restaurants received awards in the food and drink competition: elements won people’s choice; Fusion Fish won best entree and best plating presentation; TOPO Organic Distillery won best beverage and The Pickle Jar Cafe won best dessert. CUT OFF FROM SUGAR Sugarland, the Chapel Hill bakery that’s been a fixture on Franklin Street for a decade, closed in October. Owner Katrina Ryan said flooding from Hurricane Florence and Tropical Storm Michael contributed to its closing. GET A PIZZA THIS! Chef Teddy Diggs is opening a permanent location for Coronato, his new Romanstyle pizzeria, in spring 2019. The new restaurant will be in the South Green shopping center and will feature Romaninspired cracker thin crust pizzas and seasonal antipasti. He will continue to host pizza pop-ups for the public until the grand opening of Coronato. A FOREVER MYSTERY TO US After nearly seven years in business, Mystery Brewing Company closed its doors for good on Halloween. Founder and CEO Erik Lars Myers says they can no longer afford to operate because they’ve always been undercapitalized and have suffered a string of bad luck.

Bret Jennings learned how to prepare duck in southwest France, which, in French cooking traditions, is kind of like saying you learned about basketball in the South – sure, there’s a lot of it, but who’s your team? “They fight about it,” Bret says. “Toulouse, Castelnaudary, Carcassonne – who makes the best duck.” Before opening Elaine’s on Franklin 19 years ago, Bret worked in kitchens in Toulouse, learning to render duck’s flavorful fat and braise the meat properly on open pans. He brings those skills to one of Elaine’s signature dishes, pan-roasted duck with lemongrass rice. Starting with a tangy, Thai-influenced peanut sauce, Bret adds fresh cilantro, carrots, broccoli and snow peas over jasmine rice. Over the top, he lays a duck breast – not from the Pyrenees but Pennsylvania. It is panseared so the skin is just sticky, sliced into about 20 improbably thin medallions. “It’s hard to do duck well,” Bret says. “And we think we do it better than anyone.” Be true to your school! Pan-roasted duck breast, $30 – Matt White

Gifts for Foodies This time last year, my husband, Drake, and I made a compilation of our favorite recipe discoveries of 2017, bound them in low tech school folders and gave them to our friends and family for Christmas. Buoyed by the response (at least one person seemed to enjoy it), we’ll do it again this holiday season. For especially good boys and girls on our list, we will throw in the best condiment ever: Fiddlehead Farm’s Local Ramp Salt. It makes everything taste better. Drake may well have bought out the Pittsboro company’s entire supply. If so, try Fiddlehead’s Green Garlic Salt instead. Your scrambled eggs will never be the same. For memorable gifts and stocking stuffers, Fiddlehead Farm’s extraordinary condiments and preserves can be found at

Funny Girl Farm, all locations of Weaver Street Market and the Carrboro Farmers’ Market. Cookbooks are always a welcome present for those of us who love to cook. For those who don’t, but need to anyway, Peg Bracken’s old classic, “I Hate to Cook Book,” may be a welcome gift. The 50th anniversary edition is still available in bookstores and online. One of the best dishes I put in my mouth this year was a chicken-artichoke casserole from her book made by a friend who really does hate to cook. UNC Press’ roster of cookery and foodways books published this year includes all kinds of sugarplums. Georgann Eubanks’ “The Month of Their Ripening: North Carolina Heritage Foods through the Year” is a charmer – the January chapter’s

featured dish is snow cream! Debbie Moose’s “Carolina Catch” will be a new essential for fish lovers. “Southern Snacks” by Perre Coleman Magness provides enough party ideas for a lifetime. Her rendition of Carolina caviar elevates black-eyed peas to a status worthy of Champagne. Sara Foster’s “Pie,” the latest of the Savor the South series, offers classic as well as innovative recipes for both dessert and main course pies. Her roasted pear-brown butter tart may become a new Christmas tradition at our house. My holiday gift to you, readers, is from our ‘2018 Best of the Year’ folder. This easy, inexpensive braise, adapted from a New York Times recipe, can be popped in the oven and forgotten for a couple of hours while you shop for gifts. Happy holidays!

3-4 Tbsp. olive oil

Add 2 ½ cups chicken stock (or 3 cups for slower cooking), red pepper flakes and the bay leaves. Bring the mixture to a simmer. Return the ribs and drippings back into the Dutch oven. Cover and place in the preheated oven. Braise the meat for 1 hour (or up to 2 hours if you cook it at 275 F). Uncover the Dutch oven, stir the mixture and cook, stirring occasionally, on the stovetop at a low temperature until the liquid thickens and the meat is very tender, about a half hour. If the sauce thickens too much, dilute with a little water or broth. Remove bay leaves before serving. Serve with plain polenta, mashed potatoes, mashed cauliflower, or for an extra special accompaniment, Sweet Corn Polenta. Serves 4-6

2 large carrots, chopped 1 stalk celery, chopped 1 onion, chopped 4 cloves garlic, minced 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar 2 Tbsp. tomato paste 2 1/2 cups or more chicken stock 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes 2 bay leaves

PHOTO BY JAMES STEFIUK

Braised Country-Style Pork Ribs 2 1/2-3 lbs. pork country-style ribs, bone in or boneless, cut into thick slices Salt and black pepper

Preheat oven to 350 F (or 275 F for longer cooking). Season ribs with salt and pepper. Add oil to a Dutch oven. Over high heat, brown the ribs on all sides, in batches. Place the ribs on a plate. Add more oil to the pan, if needed, plus the carrots, celery, onions and garlic, Cook until vegetables are soft, stirring constantly. Add the apple cider vinegar and stir a couple of minutes until evaporated. Add tomato paste and cook, stirring another minute.

FAIRCLOTH & WILKINSON

S M BY TAYLOR MABREY PHOTOGRAPHY BY CHARINA BROOKS LIFESEEINGLENSES.COM

Sarah Faircloth and Curry Wilkinson met for the first time at a

kiln opening the day before Sarah graduated from UNC. Curry, who graduated from East Chapel Hill High School and UNCGreensboro, and Sarah, a Burlington native, were together for two years before getting engaged. At the beginning of fall, the pair took a trip with Sarah’s dog, Clover, to Beech Mountain, North Carolina. Curry started the trip off on a high note by proposing to Sarah in the morning before they spent time in Blowing Rock. The couple tied the knot on November 24, 2017 at Burwell School Historic Site in Hillsborough with Sarah’s brother, Jacob Faircloth, holding both rings. They included many Scottish and Irish blessings in their ceremony as well as a lot of plaid and natural greenery in their decorations all inspired by Sarah’s trips to Scotland and Ireland. The 45 guests, including parents Kari and Mike Wilkinson and Randy and Chris Faircloth, enjoyed barbecue from Hursey’s Bar-B-Q and cake from A Cake Tray in Pittsboro. In lieu of a guest book, Curry crafted a platter that everyone signed and sent everyone home at the end of the unforgettable night with handmade mugs. The couple resides in Burlington, where they operate a pottery business together, Curry Wilkinson Pottery. CHM

BY NICHOL AS MOT TA PHOTOGRAPHY BY CAROLINE KEMMERER, CAROLINE JEAN PHOTOGRAPHY CAROLINEJEANPHOTOGRAPHY.PIXIESET.COM

Matthew Schneider and Carrboro High School graduate Carolyn Motta both lived on the same floor of Hewlett Hall their freshman

year at UNC-W. They started dating after they were paired up for a project in a freshman seminar class and were together for seven years before Matt proposed on December 17, 2017. Matt popped the question during a romantic walk on Wrightsville Beach, after dinner at one of their favorite restaurants. The small but lovely ceremony was held on September 8, 2018, on a waterfront property in Wilmington with a view of the Masonboro Sound and a plethora of oak trees. The couple said their “I do’s” in front of parents Christine Schneider, Stephen Motta and Helen Motta alongside members of their wedding party Eric Motta, Mattie Sollee, Christine Motta and Nicholas Motta. The reception took place underneath a massive tent on the lawn. One of the highlights of the evening was the bar service and three specialty cocktails created by Mister Bartender, including a wonderful lavender lemonade that matched with the decor and bouquets. The reception went on into the night, where the couple was later joined by their dog, Sadie, who had a blast running around and playing with guests. The couple resides in Wilmington where they just bought their first home. CHM

RIPLEY & HILL

D BY PARRISH ALTO PHOTOGRAPHY BY KAYL A COLEMAN KAYL ACOLEMANPHOTOGRAPHY.COM

David Lee Hill and Olivia Ripley went on their first date in 2015 while

she was home from New York City for Chapel Hill High School’s class reunion. Ten months later, on a trip to France with friends, Olivia showed David Lee all around Paris, where she had lived and worked for four years after college. Knowing how much Olivia had loved her time in Paris and the significance that the Eiffel Tower held for her, David Lee planned a surprise for their second-to-last night. After successfully sneaking the ring through three rounds of metal detectors inside the Eiffel Tower, they made it to the restaurant on the second level. There, over dinner and champagne, David Lee proposed to Olivia overlooking the Parisian sunset and city landscape. On May 19, the couple were married at University United Methodist Church. The celebration continued on the front porch at The Carolina Inn with a large reception of family and friends including parents Jackie Coté and John Ripley of Carrboro and Dremea and David Hill of Madison, West Virginia. Members of the wedding party included local residents Bart Fox and Benjamin and Rebecca Johnson, as well as friends from Durham, Charlotte, New York City, Charlottesville, Los Angeles, Toronto and Paris. With wine from Chapel Hill Wine Company and delicious wedding cake from Miel Bon Bons, the couple ate, drank and danced to Motown and funk band Mo’Sol throughout the night. The couple resides in Chapel Hill, where David Lee is an oral and maxillofacial surgeon at his own practice and Olivia manages ashlyn&co. hair salon. CHM
