Daily Beat: May 14, 2014



Center City Park in Greensboro hosts Tunes at Noon today (and future Wednesdays) with music by Falls and Bandito Burrito food truck on hand. Oh yeah, remember them? From our article featuring their Asian fusion tacos (left). Event lasts ’til 1:30.

Some local teachers are traveling to Raleigh today to assert demands about public schools on the first day of the General Assembly’s new session.

Maya on Tate Street’s annual book sale, with 50 percent off on all books, begins tomorrow. The space has been struggling this year due to a spat of bad weather, its owner said, and has been running a community campaign to try and keep its doors open.


I guess it’s already carnival season. The first Central Carolina Festival begins tonight at the Greensboro Coliseum, from 5 p.m. – 11 p.m., ending on May 18. Rides, carnival food… you know the drill. Oh, and there will be a daily horse show featuring “12 miniature stallions” — YUP, sounds like Lil’ Sebastian to me!

SynerG, the young professionals group linked to Action Greensboro, hosts its monthly On Tap event at Scuppernong Books from 5:30- 8 p.m. tonight. I learned the hard way recently that these events pack out early, so if you want a seat at the wooden bar or a less overwhelming environment in which to get your networking on, come on the early side.

The Asheville-based band Circus Mutt plays at Foothills Brewery in Winston-Salem tonight starting at 8 p.m. In the band’s own words, its music sounds like “corn liquor meets craft beer with a Hot Toddy chaser.” Whatever you say, guys.

The Greensboro Grasshoppers play the Rome Braves tonight at 7 p.m.
