rdubaton Starlight, star bright, please bring me @gonzatacosytequila nachos tonight #Didyouknowthat the owners of Gonza are from Colombia so all of the dishes have a Colombian flair? They started at just a tiny location on Lead Mine, and now they've grown to 4 (aka cuatro) locations! Plus, they're throwing a HUGE Cinco de Mayo (aka 5th of May ) celebration in all locations so you don't want to miss it Thanks for letting me share my day with you! I'm looking forward to seeing the baton grow as our city evolves. Hey- @laureneshor take us to the weekend? 🏼@jess_ekstrom...OUT! 🏻️ 21h

rdubaton ⛈ or ️ the show goes on! #Didyouknowthat every Thursday for 17 weeks, North Hills hosts a beach music series? Bring your lawn chairs and your best shag moves and grab a beer at the tent starts at 6 and ends at 9, but there's plenty to do around North Hills before and after. Follow Midtown Beach Series on Facebook for the lineup! 📸 by @jess_ekstrom 23h

rdubaton Well I was going to take you to @meetandcompete volleyball at Jaycee Park but considering this monsoon that just occurred let's #treatyoself & get ice cream instead @treatraleigh is located in City Market and has #DELISH flavors and sundaes (in waffle bowls) #Didyouknowthat Treat is partners with Hillsborough’s Maple View Farm to deliver hormone-free and antibiotic-free ice cream and sorbet. You MUST try the Carolina Crunch flavor (vanilla with butterfinger, heath bar & bits of caramel). They also have super unique toppings like crushed matza and pork rinds. It's also totally family owned and they couldn't be sweeter (pun intended) (📸 by @jess_ekstrom) 1d

rdubaton One of my favorite things about Raleigh is the little discoveries you find on the side streets. The Little Free Library is definitely one of those hidden gems. #Didyouknowthat you can give a book and take a book for free? Perfect for summer reading 🌞 📸 by @jess_ekstrom 1d

rdubaton When you shop locally, you're basically giving back to your community which means you can shop all you want because it's a good deed, right? 🛍 Jk...but seriously Peachy Keen is hands down my favorite boutique. They have adorable clothes, gift items, shoes and they're even connected to their other family business @jointventurenc jewelry. #Didyouknowthat they're a 100% family owned shop run by two sisters + mom and dad? They carry local designers like @kendakistjewelry @freakerusa @viderichocolate @headbandsofhope @porchflyclothing AND they host amazing fashion shows for charity. Follow @thepeachykeen to see their amazing products and stay in the loop with their upcoming events! 📸 @jess_ekstrom 1d

rdubaton You had me at pork belly 🤗 Definitely try @kimbapcafe for some fresh, local, organic, Korean-inspired cuisine. #Didyouknowthat in 2015 nearly 50% of their food purchases were from local farmers and vendors? You can see a list of them on their site like @raleighcityfarm Do yourself a favor and order anything with the pork belly and an egg on top You can thank me later. They're also teaming up with @crankarmbrew for a seven course whole hog dinner on May 1st. Local food + local beer = (📸 by @jess_ekstrom) 1d

thatdudetreenz The Venus Fly Trap.
When an insect lands or crawls on the trap, it is likely to run into one of six, short, stiff hairs on the trap's surface. These are called trigger hairs (one is pictured above), and they serve as a primitive motion detector for the plant. If two of these hairs are brushed in close succession, or one hair is touched twice, the leaves close down upon the offending insect within half a second, capturing it between its 'teeth' on the outside of the trap.

rdubaton One of my favorite things about Raleigh is the #entrepreneurial spirit. I started my company @headbandsofhope as a student 4 years ago at @ncstate. When I graduated, I moved my HQ from my dorm room to @hq_community Not only does the office space make you feel like you can conquer the world, but #didyouknowthat HQ Raleigh just became a certified #bcorp? Meaning they're a verified for-profit company that meets really strict standards of social and environmental good. Pretty flipping cool. They're also doing some major expansions, including a new shuttle service to ease the downtown parking situation. Some awesome companies out of HQ are: @lawsonhammock @kidz_notes @lesson.ly @mefinefoundation @bobblelove @seventhgeneration @getstealz @sluicegear and more 1d

Hi! I'm @jess_ekstrom 🏼 I travel around the world almost every week for work ️ and Raleigh continues to be my favorite city So I'm so stoked to show you all of my favorite places! The theme of the baton today will be #DidYouKnowThat 🤔 Let's get started! 🏋
Raleigh Crossfit is not new to the baton, but #DidYouKnowThat when you're a member of @raleighcrossfit you get 4 free classes per month at @corepoweryogaraleigh (& visa versa)? So if you can't decide where you wanna #namaste or #cleanandjerk, you can do both Isn't it great when Raleigh businesses collaborate? RCF also does a TON of work for the community. They have a blood drive coming up on May 2nd and they're collecting soaps for servicemen returning from duty via the USO of NC. Both RCF and Core Power have amazing instructors & they both offer a free class for first-timers...so what are you waiting for? (📸 @jess_ekstrom)
