Profile of Guglhupf restaurant in Durham, North Carolina, which has been challenging the typical notion of German food for 20 years.
In its newest (and biggest) location, Locopops has diversified its dessert menu to feature non-frozen and liquid treats. A spiffy new shop on Hillsborough Road, down the road from their original store, also expands hours, and parking to be enjoyed all year.

For some, Thanksgiving is a time to dust off heirloom recipes and pretend you always set the table with fancy napkin rings and flickering candlelight. For others, the holiday is a headache of shopping and cooking logistics, loads of dishes, and too few chairs.
Why not leave it to the professionals to whip up a perfect turkey (and perhaps a perfect martini, too) and clean up afterward? Or do something totally different this year?
Be thankful for these Triangle restaurants staying open on Thurs...
Tony Lopez would like to hang out and listen to his record collection with you, and match you to a perfect beer while he's at it. A Durham native and longtime d.j. and bartender, he opened Volume in Hillsborough in October with Nathan Andrews, a friend since high school. It's a record store with a bar, or perhaps a bar with records.
Arriving in Orange County with relatively little fanfare, Volume has so far been met with a steady audience who didn't know they were lacking a record store bar. ...
In this lull between fun summer TV like “True Blood” and the fall premieres of network television shows, many people have been binge watching the Netflix comedy, “Orange is the New Black.” Set at a women’s prison in Rockland County, New York, the series has generated new interest in jail. (From the outside, at least.) Here are five notable prison museums around the world with flexible visiting hours for an easy escape.
Like many longtime New Yorkers, I don’t own a car and know little about the finer points of purchasing or owning a vehicle.

Yesterday, I went out to JFK Airport with no flight to catch and no visitors to greet. It was the annual Open House New York event, where private buildings and homes all over the city open to the public for a few hours, and it was a last chance to see the iconic TWA Flight Center before it is turned into a hotel.
Once known as the "Savage Island" due to the unfriendly welcome given to explorer Captain Cook in 1774, Niue is a small South Pacific island known for its large raised coral reef and its tiny capital "city," Alofi. While it uses New Zealand currency (bring it with you, there are no ATMs on Niue)…
Much of New Zealand feels like England, by way of Polynesia. There are a few exceptions, though, such as the town of Akaroa, a former French settlement, and the distinctly Scottish city of Dunedin, named after the Scottish Gaelic name for Edinburgh.
There's plenty to marvel at around New Zealand’s Bay of Plenty: dramatic volcanic and geothermal formations, sweeping white-sand beaches and an abundance of birdlife and marine animals. Whakaari (White Island), which lies some 50 kilometers (30 miles) off the coast, has been New Zealand’s most active…
