Trader Joe’s is worth the trip

Trader Joe’s is sort of new to North Carolina, so it might not be a name you’re familiar with. TJ is a unique grocery store chain.

Each store stocks a variety of organic produce and other items, including meats and dairy. If you’re looking for high quality without the high prices, you can find it at Trader Joe’s. After hearing my California friends brag about what a great store this was, I was glad to finally get to experience it myself. I visited the Cary Trader Joe’s near Cary Parkway.

Duran Duran at the Cary Amphitheatre

Duran Duran at the Cary Amphitheatre, May 21, 2008I was at the Cary Amphitheatre for the first time last week to see Duran Duran. It was a great show, and I loved the venue. I plan on going back in the future.

Duran Duran was fabulous! You know how some bands don’t sound like themselves at a live performance? I think some musicians have so much in the way of studio enhancements that they can’t match it when they play in front of a live audience. Duran Duran isn’t like that. They sounded great. They’ve been playing some of their stuff for nearly 30 years, so they’ve had a lot of practice.

They played a good mix of old and new songs. Is there anyone else who thinks Last Chance On the Stairway and Ordinary World are their best songs ever?

We all had a wonderful time, and I’m looking forward to doing it again soon. Thanks, everyone (MZ, TV, RS)! KF, it would have been so much fun if you could have made it. Maybe next time?

Here’s a blurry picture of the stage.
