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: 
Charles Phaneuf
About Charles: I’m a part-time musician & full-time arts aficionado.

Charles' perfect day in Raleigh:

Morning: I love a fried green tomato biscuit from Rise in Cameron Village, which is on my way in to work at Raleigh Little Theatre

Lunch: Either tacos at Taqueria El Toro or anything from Neomonde on Beryl Road. Bonus of going to Neomonde is picking up fresh pita, loose leaf tea or other goods from the in-store market. 

Late afternoon: On a weekend afternoon, my wife and I frequent the Capital Area Greenway, and especially love the urban beach at Lassiter Mill Park. We also like to play darts at Raleigh Brewing or White Street Brewing Co. in Wake Forest.

Dinner: Since we’re often headed back to RLT or to an opening at the Gregg Museum, we often pick between Mitch’s Tavern or Players Retreat

Evening: If it’s First Friday, we’ll check out downtown museums and galleries before going to Eyes Up Here at Neptunes for comedy. On a Sunday night, we enjoy 7 Stories at Kings to hear great local storytellers.
