Urban foragers show how to gather wild foods in downtown Raleigh

On a four-block jaunt around the Mordecai neighborhood, you can forage the makings of a pretty decent salad: ground ivy, lawn asparagus, overgrown-garden fennel and wild scuppernong grapes – garnished with a sprig of pepper weed plucked from the side of a utility pole.

Captain Poncho’s Mexican Grill opening delayed

Talk about your frustrating detours. Barely 36 hours before tomorrow’s scheduled Grand Opening of Captain Poncho’s Mexican Grill in Chapel Hill’s Southern Village, a broken gas line has forced a postponement of the event. Pending repairs and re-inspection, owner Carolina Escobar now hopes to open the brick-and-mortar location of the popular Captain Poncho’s Tacos food truck by early September. The Grand Opening — an all-day celebration with live salsa music — has tentatively been rescheduled for September 10.
