Great Holiday Dining in Durham

The holiday season in Durham is the most wonderful time of the year for reconnecting with family, friends, and of course; food. As “The Tastiest Town in the South,” Durham has a (turkey) leg up on other cities. While many restaurants across the country close for the Christmas holiday, there are plenty of places to go in Durham for the classics; Christmas Ham, gingerbread, sweet potato pie and eggnog.

Don’t spend Christmas in the kitchen, when there are restaurants ready to wait on you. Treat the family to a dinner at the Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club’s Fairview Dining Room. The restaurant will be serving a 4-course Christmas Eve dinner on December 24 from 5:30-9pm from a $65 per person prix fixe menu. On Christmas Day, the restaurant will host a buffet including a chef’s carving station and dessert display for $69 per person. For reservations, visit

With Durham restaurants, the most important holiday decisions can be as easy as choosing between pumpkin pie and apple pie.

"Sound Vision: Contemporary Art from the Collection" Art Exhibit

Since the turn of the 20th century, artists have appropriated imagery from well-known works of art, commodities and the media in order to make a statement about art’s relationship to, and place within, our world. The artists included in this installation use appropriation in their own way and for their own purposes, addressing themes of identity, politics, economics, history and nostalgia. Central to all of these works are questions of originality and the processes that go into making art. This installation includes works from the Nasher Museum’s collection by Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Alice Wagner, Vik Muniz, Alexander Kosolapov and others. Admission $5, $4 seniors, $3 non-Duke students with student ID.
