This edition is sponsored by the Raleigh Convergence. 
Each week, we'll ask guest curators -- subscribers like you -- to share what their perfect day in the Raleigh area looks like. 

This week's guest curator: 
Christin King “CK”

About CK: I’m a Raleigh native, collector of vinyls and coffee mugs and I also own a small business here in Raleigh called CKCreations. I specialize in small business branding + social media, full service wedding invitation design + calligraphy, and custom watercolors + workshops. 

CK's perfect day in Raleigh:

Morning: I make a cup of coffee at home then wander over to Nice Price Books + More to peruse the newest influx of records (walking distance from my house). A good walk and a chance of scenery is always something that gets me inspired for the day.

Lunch: I’d get ready and head to Sola Coffee to meet a good friend for brunch + yes, more coffee (I’m kind of an addict). After brunch would be best spent thrifting for treasures or shopping for one of a kind showstoppers at my favorite local shop, Voda Boutique

Late Afternoon: If the weather is nice I’d go spend the day wandering around Lake Johnson or hit up a local pop-up market (if I’m not a vendor myself). I’d suggest Triangle Pop-up’s makers market at Transfer Co. Food Hall. 

I’d probably end up grabbing an afternoon treat at my favorite Yellow Dog bakery. I’d suggest their Brown Sugar Latte, which in my opinion is the most understated latte in Raleigh. 

Dinner: I’d spend the evening dining al fresco on the patio at Trophy Brewing + Pizza or if I’m feeling fancy, Caffé Luna, which has the best Italian food in the city. I’d end cap the perfect day with a night cap at Watts & Ward or head to  Bittersweet for cocktails + dessert.
