Suggestions for things to do while visiting Raleigh, NC?

I moved to Raleigh, NC a while ago. I like it here a lot. It's great. I'm really glad I moved here. Now I have a friend coming out to visit. I'd like to show her around. This is kind of embarrassing, but I don't know where to take her. I've spent the entire time I've been here either working or riding. She isn't super into horses. [more inside]

How to find apartment rentals for April 1st?

Hi everyone; I have to find an apartment in the area of Whitby,Ajax,Pickering or Oshawa Ontario for April 1,for my job. Would anyone know of a web site that only looks for apartments in the future(April 1)? Everytime I look I end up on Kijiji or Craig's list. Is there a "trick"to search better for this? Thanks :-)

What should I do this weekend in Durham (and in Durham in general)?

I recently moved to Durham and the family members I know are all out of town this weekend. I have a car and I like art things, queer things, feminist things, book things, music things. What can I do to entertain myself over the holiday weekend? And, bonus question: how do I make friends and meet dates (outside OkCupid) in Durham? I'm funderemployed for the time being and am seeking excitement to fill my days.

Bachelor party without drinking in North Carolina

Hey, so I'm getting married this October in North Carolina, and I'm wondering what my bachelor party should look like. I can't think of anything to do besides fishing and camping. What are some other fun ideas? Caveat: no drinking. Probably 5-10 people will be on the trip, tops.

Canny, like.

A young baby in our family is very alert, active and friendly and my sister and myself both found ourselves referring to her as 'canny'. But when we were asked what the word means, and why it applies to her, we couldn't quite explain it. Is there any one on here, probably from the North of England, who could have a go at explaining 'canny', meaning and usage (and possibly derivation?)

Driving tour of Raleigh/Durham/CH/Cary to Decide Whether to Relocate?

We are going to Chapel Hill for a long weekend, starting 1/1, and are very seriously considering moving there from Brooklyn. I've read previous threads on the Research Triangle area, and we may have an appointment with a realtor set up, but we're not quite sure how to prioritize what areas/streets/towns we see, and, in particular, don't want to end up driving around aimlessly, especially with a 7 month old in the backseat. Mefites, please help us organize our time so we can make an itinerary! [more inside]

What restaurant for a large gathering of 35+ people?

Every year our family gets together for a post-holiday dinner at a restaurant near our house, in Durham, NC. People are coming from all over the region, so a potluck would be difficult. We normally do this at Golden Corral, but they are booked at our preferred time, and my partner and I just really, really don't like Golden Corral. What are other restaurants that can handle our party? (Details within.) [more inside]

Seeking vet for cat with joint, skeletal, or related problem

Artemis is an awesome cat in Durham/Chapel Hill, NC, who walks, runs, and jumps, but not as well as she should. One vet, in March, found nothing wrong; another, in June, saw she was walking oddly and said to wait a while to see if it got better on its own. Now I'm looking for a vet with expertise or interest in feline musculo-skeletal issues for the next steps. [more inside]

Considering moving from the NE and wonder about Durham NC

We are a couple in our mid-50's and are looking for some specific things in our next move; more temperate weather than the North East where we are now; progressive thinking people, good food and a thriving food scene, ability to buy a house for less than $350K, low property taxes ( less than $5K) within driving distance (45 minutes is the max) to a major airport and open-minded people. We are both entrepreneurial and active, love the outdoors and nature and want a small yard for a garden and to be near some kind of water be it a large lake, river or coast. We are considering Portland Ore. or Durham NC. We are still working and work for ourselves. Anyone have an opinion on either or both?

Feel free to MeMail or e-mail me if you do not want to post publicly. Thanks, MetaFilter!

Great destinations, routes and experiences in and around Toronto.

I want to go to there, but I need your advice on where "there" is. Starting point: Toronto. Range: any land within 100 km (60-ish miles) of High Park, but I can go further for something really special. Means of transport: my trusty steed. Time frame: now until November-ish. I'm looking for great routes or awesome destinations, urban, rural or suburban, like the best roti in Scarborough, a tiny potter's studio somewhere in Peel, or a gorgeous path by some body of water that isn't Lake Ontario. I want to go somewhere to do something neat, like picking apples or riding horses. And this is not Torontofilter or bikefilter. I'm looking for creative ideas from anyone, anywhere. [more inside]

What's odd in Chapel Hill / Durham / Carrboro, NC?

What are some of the coolest/oddest things to photograph in the Chapel Hill / Durham / Carrboro, NC area? I'm looking to do a photography project with no human subjects, and want to highlight the weirdest stuff I can find in the area. Things like Clyde Jones's Critters, the old concrete hippo in Bolin Creek, the doll-head car, even the grout-pun men's room on campus... the more minute, obscure, and odd, the better. Ugly is A-OK. I'll photo landmarks, graffiti, vehicles, abandoned things, and maybe even Mark Jacobson, since I don't think he counts as a human subject. Nothing is too stupid to photograph, as long as it's reasonably accessible to the public. I'll head to Durham, Orange, and northern Chatham Co. in search of the bizarre, the off-center, and the just-plain-idiotic.
