One of the year’s best reminders–and celebrations–of the various cultures living side by side in Durham, Taste of Durham features music ranging from soul to samba, instruments from accordion to turn tables, and cuisine created by the top chefs in the Triangle. Add in international wine and beer tastings, and there’s really no reason not to go. The Saturday, May 28 event costs $5 ($3 in advance) and runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Brightleaf Square and Peabody Place. Visit or call 572-6511 for more information.
