The Moravian Candle Tea at Old Salem has been a Winston-Salem Christmas tradition since 1929. Participants experience the sights, sounds, smells, and even the tastes of early Moravian Christmas traditions.
Before it was Old Salem, it was simply Salem, an outpost of religious freedom carved out of the North Carolina wilderness. The buildings and gardens of today’s Old Salem have been lovingly preserved within sight of the office towers and crowded highways of Winston-Salem, the city that grew up around it.
Sushi has been hit or miss in Winston-Salem over the years. There was an epic spot called Tomo’e on Peter’s Creek parkway that had delicious fresh sushi and weekly lunch specials, but alas, it closed many years ago. There are a couple dedicated sushi restaurants as well as Japanese restaurants that offer sushi on the menu. We’ll let you try them out and would welcome your feedback as to which ones you liked (and which ones you didn’t)!
You’ve probably seen the ads, or maybe a neighbor’s home security yard sign caught your attention. Home security companies (and supposed deals) are everywhere these days! Unfortunately our beloved city does not have the lowest of crime rates, and if you’re here because you recently suffered a break-in, we’re sorry you had to go through such a traumatic experience. The good news is, armed with the right home security knowledge, you can significantly reduce your chances of a break-in recurring.

Personally, I am a huge Thai food fan. Ever since my backpacking trip through the country in 2001 I’ve been hooked on their tasty cuisine, with a particular propensity for curries. When I first moved to Winston in 2004 I immediately went on the search for good Thai food. The best (and most affordable at the time) was Downtown Thai. I’m not saying it’s not the best anymore (it’s definitely not the most affordable anymore), but you’ve got a lot more options now.
