With performance from Spyro Gyra, Jonathan Butler, Gerald Albright, Special EFX, Eddie Palmieri, and more, you won’t want to miss this.
Two Artists One Space
Two Artists One Space is at it again with Renzo Ortega and Antoine Williams. Together they explore themes of black identity and the immigrant experience with a variety of paintings, sculpture, and other media. The opening night is September 1, 6:00PM until 9:00PM. Enjoy live music from Julia Price starting at 7:00PM.
Food for Labor Day Weekend
Maybe you just want to relax this Labor Day weekend. That’s perfectly understandable, but you still need to eat. Below are a couple of restaurants that we would recommend in the Greensboro area.
Every Sunday, Lucky 32 served up skillet-fried chicken that will leave your mouth watering. They start serving the delectable chicken along with Southern snacks at 3 PM until they run out. Of course, you can go to Lucky 32 anytime, but their skillet-fried chicken can’t be beat, making Sunday afternoon the best time to show up.
The Worx Restaurant
With its historic 1890’s building and its “bistro meets pub” style, The Worx Restaurant in Downtown Greensboro may be the perfect place for a Labor Day meal. What’s more, the wonderful restaurant has real jazz music every Friday night from 8:30PM to 11:30PM making it a great place to kick your Labor Day weekend off right.
