Gadding About in Chapel Hill on a Friday Night

What better than having a late lunch at Mama Dip's in Chapel Hill, followed by watching the UNC JV basketball team play their first game of the season.  I have two grandsons on the JV team---the Palmer brothers---Zach a junior and Brooks a freshman.  And I had a front row seat!!!!
Zach number 14 in the starting lineup.
Brooks number 15 had a great game.

I am indeed happy that basketball season is here.  There will be one of the Palmer boys playing for Broughton this year too.  Tyler a sophomore there.  I'm a basketball loving GrandPat.

Birthdays and Basketball

Zach (21) and Claire (20) both have October birthdays and they, Jeanette (Claire's Mom), and I  celebrated the other Friday night with dinner at the newly renovated Crossroads Restaurant at The Carolina Inn in Chapel Hill. I like the contemporary look of the new decor, and the food is as delicious as ever.  The waiter surprised the birthday couple with two birthday cakes. 

Following dinner we enjoyed Late Night With Roy at the Dean Dome where the 2015-2016 varsity basketball team was introduced. The packed Dome was festively decorated and the entertainment was enjoyable, but Jeanette and I didn't stay for the basketball game that was played late in the evening.

Now I'm looking forward to returning to the Dean Dome for the first JV basketball game where my two grandsons are on the Carolina JV Team.
