Friday May 6, 2011 – Durham, NC
2 Nekkid Heads during the “Fried Chicken Leg” of the tour
Kevin Jackson (Blacksphere author and Conservative Comedian/Activist) along with Joe (The Plumber) Wurzelbacher brought their message to the folks of the Triangle Area of NC. The whole event was sponsored by Triangle Conservatives Unite. The day started out with a pontoon ride breakfast on Jordan Lake and then proceeded to the BULL CITY of Durham. This is where I’ll focus this article since I have 2nd hand info on this portion. My Patriot friend Bart was there AND has given me permission to use his photos & videos.
The Durham event started with Joe & Kevin meeting some fellow conservatives at a black owned restaurant in downtown Durham, Dame’s Chicken & Waffles located at 317 W. Main Street. According to Bart’s reports, it was a great venue. Food & service was terrific. Thanks to Mike(the manager) their host & server for the afternoon. If you live in the Durham area, and you haven’t already found this little gem, please check it out! You won’t regret it.
After lunch, they took a little tour through Durham and the historic American Tobacco Campus led by “Carl & Glen”…two of the locals. For those readers who may not be familiar with the Durham area, the American Tobacco Campus is an old cigarette factory that has been turned into a retail venue with restaurants, shops, apartments and office space.
After the little walk thru downtown Durham, the group decided to stroll out to the historic Bennett Place Homestead. Bennett Place is the site of the largest surrender of troops during the US Civil War. General Johnston(Confederacy) surrendered to General Sherman(Union) on April 26, 1865—– 17 days AFTER Lee & Grant met at Appomattox Courthouse in Virginia.
