Break Out the China & Crystal
2 Events at Quintessentials - October 15 & 18

Discover Herend at Quintessentials in North Hills... NC's largest collection of exquisite hand-painted treasures rarely seen in the US. This exclusive Reserve Collection presents spectacular hand painted porcelain sculptures with a powerful presence, making them strong statement pieces commanding center stage. These very special works, many of which are limited editions are created for the true Herend connoisseur and art aficionados.
Meet and observe artist, Marianna Steigervald as she demonstrates Herend's unique painting techniques on  Saturday, October 18th at Quintessentials from 10am to 7pm. Marianna will also personalize and sign your purchases.

Herend History - Now the biggest porcelain manufactory in Europe, Herend was founded in 1826 to produce earthenware in the small Hungarian village for which it was named.

In the 1850s Herend added meticulously-crafted figurines to its creations, with folk figurines commanding center stage in the early years. Herend's trademark fishnet pattern, which is widely recognized and prized as Herend's signature design, started in 1858 when an artist intrigued with a Chinese plate's fish scale design painted it onto a rooster figurine to imitate feathers.

Black was the original fishnet color, followed by rust in 1870. Blue and green were added to the fishnet family in the 1950s, when the popularity of Herend's fishnet figurines surged. Raspberry fishnet came on the scene in 1986, butterscotch in 1994 and chocolate in 2003 to add even more spice to the mix for Herend fanciers worldwide.

Quintessentials is a premier retailer for Herend; superior in their representation of Herend and is recognized for their exceptional commitment to the line. Come see this special extended collection and mark your calendars for the presentation on October 18th.

A Point All Their Own - Nicklepoint Brewing Co. Comes to Five Points


Welcome to the Neighborhood! Nicklepoint Brewing Co. is a craft microbrewery located in the Five Points neighborhood (north of downtown Raleigh) that offers classic European style ales. Started as a basement brewing project over 10 years ago by brothers Matt and Bruce Corrigan, the venture gained popularity and attracted three more friends/owners (Shaluka Perera, Mark Kanczack, and Greg Weerasinghe). Together they have turned their production into a brewery AND a neighborhood bar. Now open, it has been an instant hit and attracts some of the best food trucks offering a variety of "foodie" to compliment the microbrews. They also offer tours.


What's Brewing? According to the owners, Nicklepoint's priority is to brew quality craft beer, based on traditional, historical styles with a contemporary flare. They have a 20 barrel brew system and plan to offer four flavors at one time. The beers that are growing in popularity include Robust Porter, Belgian Golden Ale and Blonde Ale. They also produce a traditional Northern English Brown Ale, a Belgian Dubbel, and the "The Wee Heavy" Scotch Ale. They painstakingly monitor each of the beers from start to finish ensuring consistent quality time after time. Check out their Beer Info


Taste Test: Come and visit and see what your taste buds have been missing! Bring your friends and an appetitive for beer and "foodie".  Nicklepoint Brewing Co., 506 Pershing Road, Raleigh; Hours: Sun - Thurs (12 - 10pm), Fri & Sat (12pm - 12am); Contact: 919.516.9561 - Website



The "Other" Stein Mart - Steinfest at Claymakers' Gallery in Durham - Starts October 3rd


A Fillpot of a Different Color: Face it ... With all those fancy microbrews popping up  around the Triangle, aren't you a little ashamed that your stein collection came from the University bookstore? Or worse, consists of Toby jugs (fillpots) that scream 1970's collection? Well, here's your chance to upgrade as Claymakers' Gallery in Durham is bringing together North Carolina's love of studio pottery and craft beer in its second annual exhibit, Steinfest. Curated by Gillian Parke, this invitational show features over 200 contemporary ceramic beer steins made by  60 artists from twenty two states and British Columbia. This exhibit of contemporary beer steins runs from October 3rd thru November 21. Also, don't miss the opening night reception, October 3 from 6-9 pm!  However, no red solo cups, please.


Clay from CA: For example, one of the contemporary artists is Eric Rempe, a native of Lancaster, PA who migrated to San Diego, California. His works have been displayed internationally and is a featured artist at the Crimson Laurel Gallery in Bakersville, NC. Working in clay for over 40 years, Rempe makes strong functional pieces that become a part of someone's life. 


Claymakers' Gallery: 705 Foster Street, Durham; Hours: Tuesday - Saturday, 1-6pm; Contact: 919.530.8355, Website

Drive Safely in The Bailey Box Car

The next time Triangle residents need a safe ride home, they could be greeted by the Bailey Box Car, the famous gift-shaped vehicle owned by Bailey's Fine Jewelry.

The service consists of two drivers, a chauffeur and a chaser. The chauffeur drives the customer home in his or her personal car and the chaser follows in a Safe Ride vehicle  to pick up the chauffeur.

Seven nights a week, from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m., customers are picked up and dropped off at locations around the Triangle including concert venues, bars, restaurants and their homes. The Bailey Box Car will occasionally serve as
the chaser vehicle that follows the customer's car.

The Beltline Buzz items are selected by our editors.  No one can pay to be featured on
The Beltline Buzz..  That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such.  Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of 
The Beltline Buzz.  Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way.  So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about. 


That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors.  You'll recognize them from the subject line: "The Beltline Buzz Dedicated E-mail."  Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone.  Not for any amount of money. 


We hope that you continue to enjoy your Beltline Buzz.  We look forward to delivering it.
