A Sunday Afternoon in Durham

This past Sunday was the last day of the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival. As I mentioned in Sunday’s post, JZ and I met up with some friends and went to Durham. It was a gorgeous day to walk around a bit and there was still plenty of daylight left at 6:30p when our film let out to have dinner outside.

We left Raleigh super early because I had no idea what it was going to be like. Surprisingly, it was pretty empty when shows were in progress, which they were pretty much all day. When a show let out, it was hectic but not crowded. Also, many restaurants in Durham close after brunch is over so there isn’t much draw to downtown on a Sunday evening. We went inside to get our tickets at will call and we still had almost an hour before seating. Since we had a late breakfast, we decided to grab a snack before the movie at one of the food trucks hanging out in front of the Carolina Theater.

We went with Parlez-Vous Crepes and split a La Napoleon with tomatoes, mozzarella, and turkey. It was so ridiculously delicious I could have eaten five more.

I love the way they serve it!

We sat by the fountain in front of the convention center and ate while we waited for our friends to arrive. Then we headed in to get in line for our movie.

I’d recommend it but I’m not sure I’d watch it again. Then again, I don’t typically consider documentaries to be the types of movies you watch over and over. Here’s the trailer for ya…

Afterwards, we headed over to Bull City Burger and Brewery for some amazing food and drink. I’ve been here several times but never mind going whenever we’re in town. Burgers, duck frites, and a tasty golden ale is just what you need to end a beautiful weekend. What did you guys have going on this weekend?
