North Carolina has 8 candidates nominated for a James Beard award for best chef in the southeast and 2 are from Winston-Salem. Peyton Smith from Mission Pizza and Stephanie Tyson from Sweet Potatoes. On a related note I did a group food and wine pairing dinner at Mission that was excellent and unique. Smith really brought an authenticity to the evening and really knows his stuff.

A James Beard Award is the next big step for downtown Winston-Salem. If one of the two nominees wins, it will bring more attention to the city and help with tourism. It may also encourage others to open restaurants in downtown.

As I've said, over the years, Winston-Salem is becoming a college town. And one of the South's Best College Towns, according to Southern Living.

This is good. But, one wonders what are the criteria since the combined student population is less than UNC- Greensboro right, and downtown W-S is not really walkable from any campus except WFMS. Interesting GSO did not make the list.

Arguably downtown Winston is walkable from WSSU. Certainly, for a fit person.

Poor Salem College, the oldest of them all, and the closest of them all, is the most walkable of all. The women still get overlooked.

There is nothing like a walkable stroll through Old Salem. And it's closer than ever to downtown with the new paths and pedestrian bridges.

I remember Raleigh / Raleigh-Durham using these lists in the 1990s to gain attention and it certainly worked for me, in Asheville. You would hear the local media in the Asheville-area report state-wide news, saying Raleigh made this list or that list of cities. They constantly made these lists and worked to have their city in magazines throughout the 1990s, as their MSA passed the Triad in population. It's good to see Winston-Salem doing this, since Winston-Salem also needs to get its name out there. It's just Charlotte, Raleigh, Greenville (S.C.), and Charleston and it's like nothing else exists in the Carolinas. My hometown of Asheville also successfully used magazines and lists, shortly after Raleigh did so. I think Greenville (S.C.) did so, as well? I long wanted to see Winston-Salem do this, we can see how Greater Winston-Salem and Innovation Quarter are marketing the area and how they view it. It's also how so many others will see the area. To those who follow cities, these lists are often viewed as garbage, since they are paid advertising. The average person reading them likely doesn't know this and even if they do, it presents the city to them in a positive way.

Boone not being on the list feels like a significant omission.

And Greenville, NC where East Carolina University is located with enrollment approaching 30,000 (28,962) and I can assure that Greenville is a college town.

Totally unrelated topic, but what's the concensus with the new look of the Journal (and N&R) website. I'm liking it seems easier to access/navigate.... :tup:

The old version was really out of date. I wish they had a section about the cities development efforts, but as you said, it's easy to quickly look through the articles.

W-S ranked by Forbes amongst top cities to retire

Quote:
cultured city of 252,000 in the Piedmont area of North Carolina, 80 miles northeast of Charlotte. Home to Wake Forest, Winston-Salem State, University of North Carolina School of the Arts and Salem College.”

Some of the pros listed for why retirees should look toward the Twin City are:

Median home price of $219,000, which is over 40% below the national median
A large number of healthcare professionals in the area
Favorable warm weather climate
High level of air quality
Thriving economic hub
Lack of state estate tax
Lack of income taxes on Social Security
Centralized location resistant to natural disasters

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_television_stations_in_North_Carolina evidence W-S is considered a suburb of Greensboro.
