May 8, 2015. Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
The Franklin Street Band plays to a packed lawn at the Carolina Inn.
On Friday nights between April 24th and October 23rd, the historic Carolina Inn hosts Fridays on the Front Porch with local music, food trucks and drinks on the large front lawn.
Outsiders tend to lump Chapel Hill with nearby Durham, but the more sensible pairing is with Carrboro, the adjacent town that was once a mere offshoot known as West End. Even today the transition from Chapel Hill, anchored by North Carolina's flagship public university, into downtown Carrboro is virtually seamless.
