Time-Out to take over East End space

Aug. 09, 2014 @ 12:39 PM

Time-Out, which has been in Chapel Hill’s University Square for 35 years, will move about a half-mile down Franklin Street this fall.

The restaurant is the last tenant in the square, soon to be cleared for redevelopment, and must be out by Setp. 1, said Time-Out’s special events manager Ira Green.

Time-Out will take over the former East End location at 201 E. Franklin Street. East End closed in June, but its ground-floor bar, Deep End, will remain open.

“I think it’s going to be a very busy location,” Green said. “Being that we’re close to all the fraternities and sororities.”

Green said because parking is limited near the new Franklin Street location, the restaurant will also open a Time-Out Express, which will be open from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m., at Time-Out Sports Bar on North Fordham Boulevard.

The express restaurant will serve the same food as the Franklin Street location.

The restaurant has also partnered with Time To Go Taxi, Green said, to offer 24 hour delivery service. Green said the restaurant will still use its mobile food truck, mainly for catering events.


Carrboro Coffee at Whole Foods: The Whole Foods at 81 S. Elliot Road will now carry seven varieties of Carrboro Coffee Roasters coffee.

The store will also serve the coffee in its Penguins Café and Coffee Bar.

Last year, Weaver Street Market and Southern Season began selling Carrboro Coffee Roasters and the coffee is available at 90 restaurants, cafes and retailers throughout the Southeast.


Acupuncture practice opens: Colleen Cole has opened the Balance Point Acupuncture & Wellness inside Flawless Day Spa and Wellness Center’s suite at 901 Willow Drive #1.

Cole has a master’s degree in acupuncture from The National College of Natural Medicine.

According to a release, she will sponsor Karma Tuesday, where all appointments are donation-based in order to make acupuncture treatments available to more people.
