I spent this morning and early afternoon in Carrboro as I’m often want to do. Why: Farmer’s Market, Weaver Street (with Rick Hermanson sandsculpture), WCOM, Carolina Fitness, and discovering the goodness of the Johnny’s “complex” on West Main Street.

Johnny’s now has a good Tienda/marcado in front, a nice coffee and pastry etc shop in the rear. ParlezVousCrepe.com truck on the side lot on Saturdays (until 2pm), and a great taco truck in the evenings — where I last got barbecued lamb tacos.

BrianR and I sat beside the coffee shop with coffee and crepes whilst he told me of his plans for Carrboro Coworking — which just got a nice small business loan.

In front of us in line were Able and Julia Parris — she photogs and blogs here and abroad.

That’s the Paris of the Piedmont for sure. Beautifully mundane.
