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. 

See the first Perfect Day in Raleigh with Kiara Ruth.

But first, an origin story. When Raleigh Convergence popped up in Moore Square Market, I tested a couple questions to see what people wanted to talk about. 

What people enjoyed sharing the most? What an ideal day in Raleigh includes.

Here are a few of the responses I got in Moore Square (before we go back to the usual format!). 

My perfect day in Raleigh includes... Farmers market in the morning, flea market, Cheshire Cat and Father & Son in the afternoon. NCMA park to walk the dog before dinner at Stanbury.

My perfect day in Raleigh includes... Pullen Park, walking around in downtown to experience the culture and the food and going to Marbles (Kids Museum)

My perfect day in Raleigh includes... 1. Bold Bagels for breakfast. 2. A walk around Lake Johnson. 3. Picnic at Pullen Park. 4. A brew at one of the many local breweries. 5. An outdoor (event) at Dix Park.
