Geer Street Garden Glee!

Vendor Friday will be focused on our favorite subject today: FOOD! There are more than a few delicious places to eat around this town. Check out our Favorite Places in Durham to learn more about some great eats, but one of our new obsessions is Geer Street Garden! Nestled in the hip part of downtown Durham, Geer Street Garden was formerly a filling station and has been renovated into a casual, yet stylish restaurant spot. They have home made cocktails that range from hard hitting liquor drinks to light and delicious Pinot Grigios, but the food is the main event.  The upscale local southern cooking is absolute heaven!

Deanna is crazy about the Fried Chicken & Arugula Salad with Hard-boiled Egg, Parmesan & Ranch Dressing as well as the INFAMOUS "Pile" that includes fried chicken, french fries, jalapenos, bacon, melted cheddar cheese with gravy and 2 sauces. The bratwurst and pimiento cheese sandwich is also Inn favorites! To top it off, you can get the banana pudding or a "loco pop shot". This shot consists of any type of liquor and a popsicle of your choice to dunk! It was quite the hit this summer.

Geer Street Garden has a great outdoor space to dine as well as cozy booths indoors. It is a great spot to gather friends and hang out and catch up. In fact,  I (Samantha) will be have a group of 6 heading there for a Friday evening dinner.  Maybe we will walk on over to Motorco or grab a beer at Fullsteam following our shared "Pile" and scrumptious sandwiches!

If you haven't checked it out, it is a new GO TO spot for the Inn and most Durhamites....
