The latest website to think Raleigh is “Awesome” is Digital City (who?). I’m starting to think that websites are created just to put Raleigh atop some list or list why it’s cool. Digital City has a series called 11 Reasons, which highlights interesting things about the city in question. The latest, published on Monday, features Raleigh. Unlike many of the lists that have popped up in the past year, this list seems to dig further into the the vibe of the city, listing such things as AV Geeks, Lump, Dan Douglas (though he’s no longer a city employee), Whiskeytown, and the Farmer’s Market.
Oddly the music scene actually includes Carrboro and Durham and Renelvis (who is from Charlotte, right?). Link Bait? Nevertheless, it’s a good read.
