Pop In for Pop-Ups & Pop-ular Ippolita

We've got popular Ippolita and pop-ups to pop in and pop out of this week. Say that 3 three times! No tongue twister kidding... We're sharing some popping hot finds! After all it's only three weeks before Thanksgiving.

Designer Ippolita, of Ippolita jewelry, will make a personal appearance at Bailey's Fine Jewelry in Cameron Village on Saturday, Nov. 14 to promote the latest Ippolita collection. The Ippolita trunk show will run from 10am to 5:30pm with designer, Ippolita in-store from 10am to 2pm.

"The Ippolita line is revered worldwide and features some of the most popular pieces we carry," said Trey Bailey, of Bailey's Fine Jewelry. "It's an honor to have such an esteemed designer like Ippolita back in our store to show off her latest designs."

Ippolita's line is heavily influenced by her artistic background. Born and raised in Italy, Ippolita attended the Instituto d'Arte where she earned a Baccalaureate in Sculpture. She began designing jewelry in 1993 and by 1994, Ippolita's jewelry design house was up and running. The Ippolita line is based in New York, but is carried by all major retailers across the US and in Canada, Hong Kong and Europe.

Ippolita's handcrafted jewelry line consists of silver, gold and rosť pieces. The line is modern and maintains an impressive presence in today's fashion industry. Bailey's Fine Jewelry is one of the highest grossing retailers of Ippolita in the state and one of only five stores in the US that she'll personally visit this year.

Dynasty of Donuts Flying High
Duck Donuts and Rise Biscuits & Donuts in the Triangle

Two doughnut shops in the Triangle offer innovative and eclectic flavors sure to arouse your curiosity and taste buds. Crowds spill onto the sidewalks as if everyday is Black Friday and doughnuts were price-slashed consumer electronics at Duck Donuts and Rise Biscuits & Donuts. Both have joined the national movement to rescue the doughnut from the "doldrums of mass production" as they've created artisanal gourmet flavors.    

"Warm Delicious and Made to Order" is Duck Donuts slogan, and they're true to their promise. Duck Donuts are always hot because they only make them to order... as you watch them fry your donuts, add the Coatings of your choice, (Icing such as; maple, lemon, chocolate, vanilla or sugars such as powdered & cinnamon) and then topping them off with your choice of Toppings. (coconut, chocolate & rainbow sprinkles, pecans or bacon)

Duck Donuts started in 2007 when Russell DiGilio was vacationing in the Outer Banks and decided that a doughnut shop would fill a void in the market. DiGilio partnered with Robin Griffith, who was already working in food management, and they opened two shops, one in Duck and the other in Kitty Hawk, NC.

Duck's locations in the Triangle are Wrenn Plaza at 100 Wrenn Drive in Cary and coming very soon at Raleigh's Towne North, 8323 Creedmoor Road.

This family-oriented shop assures you'll love their decadent cake-like donuts with warm icings and more toppings that top it off. There's nothing like a freshly made warm donut or two or three... along with a piping hot good cup of coffee!

Duck Donuts Cary - Wrenn Plaza at 100 Wrenn Dr. Suite 101, Cary, 27511. Ph: (919) 468-8722. Hours: Sun - Tues: 6am - 3pm, Wed - Sat: 6am - 7pm.

The Rise flagship location is in Durham near the Streets at Southpoint and has been open since 2012 with a simple vision...serve great food at an affordable price point, made with premium quality ingredients by people who care.

Before opening his tiny biscuit and doughnut shop in 2012, chef Tom Ferguson drove cross-country to sample the best of both comfort foods, and came back inspired. His huge, flaky biscuits are served with unusual combinations of local toppings like fried green tomatoes and pimento cheese. His donuts features an assortment of old school (like; plain glazed, chocolate icing, Bavarian cream w chocolate icing filled), and new school specialty donuts with interesting and unusual flavors (such as; apple fritter, oreo, maple bacon bar, creme burlee filled and pumpkin spice latte).

Rise biscuit menu features everyday favorite fillings like country ham, bacon, sausage, fried chicken, and fried eggplant "bacon," as well as a variety of cheeses, spreads, and eggs. You choose it, they'll make it. Rise biscuit and donut specialty offerings change monthly, and each Rise location features its own, unique specialty biscuit & donut each month.

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.
