There’s a memorial set up on the grounds of the Governmental Plaza to honor the record-setting 61 lives lost to gun violence in the city of Greensboro last year. Mothers Standing Against Gun Violence placed the memorial and held a gathering last month to highlight the lives lost and the work we need to do to end gun violence.
// Local Flavor //
Whenever we’re craving a bubble tea we head over to The Lao Kitchen at 2601 West Gate City Blvd around lunchtime (and pick up some lunch to go along with it!) Our favorites are the #3 Combo Bánh Mi sandwich (if you like pâté – get the #2 Roast Pork if you don’t), the Spicy Basil Ground Chicken stir fry, and of course Bubble Tea (we like the Milk Tea flavor). While you’re waiting you can shop the Aounemay Asian Market at the front of the building for noodles, spices, produce, and more!

Greensboro has a new mural! This giant gold rose is on the side of the former Orrell Design building (now Salon 440) on Eugene St. across from the ballpark.
