Get Soaked - Ride the Slide of Your Life

Embrace your inner child and get ready for the slide of your life! Slide the City is bringing the biggest water party of the summer to Raleigh's Glenwood South on Saturday, May 30th. Grab your swimsuit and speed down this one-of-a-kind 1000ft slip-and-slide. There will be music, dancing, food, drinks, and even some swag for sale so you can soak up the sun in style. Watch Video.

The city of Raleigh will shut down traffic from Tucker Street to West Jones Street on Glenwood Avenue so that you can have fun in a safe environment. Come dressed to impress because it's not every day you can strut through town with your hot bod, cool dance moves and slick slides. Did we mention 1000 feet? Yeah, that's over 3 football fields! Usain Bolt will be green with envy once he sees how fast you can cover that much ground.

Slide the City is a family friendly slip-and-slide water party event based out of Utah. Oh, and in case you were wondering, the slides are made here in the good ole USA and travel throughout the country from city to city. Slide the City workers think of themselves as 'carney workers', (without the mullets and the missing teeth).

There will be live music, food, drinks, water, and of course the biggest slip and slide ever to hit asphalt. Don't worry, they've got it padded.These slide's have more cushion than your grandpa's orthopedic sneakers.

Make sure to bring your water buckets, floaties, and water guns (non-realistic of course), to squirt, spray, splash, and get all attending soaked.

3 Movies You'll Want to See This Month - Oui Oui

Spring in Paris... blooming flowers, art, romance. Next best thing? Movies a NCMA. The North Carolina Museum of Art announces the 2015 spring series of Friday night films, titled 'Pictures from Paris' While darkness has recently shadowed the City of Light, the Museum's spring series offers images and stories of Paris that speak to its eternal charm and joie de vivre. Films are introduced by NCMA film curator Laura Boyes and shown in the Museum Auditorium-the only all-35mm venue in the Triangle.

Cleo from 5 to 7 - Friday, April 17, 8pm (1962) Written and directed by Agnès Varda. Corinne Marchand, Antoine Bourseiller, Dominique Davray. (90 min.) In French with English subtitles.

Selfish pop singer Cléo (Corinne Marchand) has two hours to wait until the results of her biopsy come back. After an ominous tarot card reading, she visits her friends, all of whom fail to give her the emotional support she needs. Wandering around Paris, she finally finds comfort talking with a soldier in a park. On leave from the Algerian War, his troubles put hers in perspective. As they talk and walk, Cléo comes to terms with her selfishness, finding peace before the results come back.

Populaire - Friday, April 24, 8pm (2012) Written and directed by Régis Roinsard. Romain Duris, Déborah François, Bérénice Bejo. (111 min.) Rated R. In French with English subtitles.

Rose Pamphyle, passionate about her typewriter, leaves her village for the big city. Her keyboard skills inspire her debonair boss to train her for the 1958 speed typing championship of France. This candy-colored Mad Men-era rom-com bonbon evokes the stylishness of classic Hollywood. "Populaire has an abundance of charm" (New York Times).

Amélie - Friday, May 1, 8pm (2001) Written and directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet. Audrey Tautou, Mathieu Kassovitz. (122 min.) Rated R. In French with English subtitles.
Impish Amélie is shy, but blossoms when she discovers a knack for doing good deeds. Devoted to her Montmartre neighborhood and delighting in simple pleasures, she embodies all the mischievous promise of the City of Lights. "Tautou is utterly captivating. Ditto the movie. There's magic in it" (Rolling Stone).

Tickets - May be purchased at the Museum Box Office, online, or by phone at (919) 715-5923 during regular Museum hours. Many screenings sell out, so you are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance and arrive early to secure choice seating.

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.
