This is sort of an odd, 2 part question. At her school's auction Lulu got a chance to go book shopping with her teacher and a friend, and then dinner out with the teacher afterwards. So I'm looking for a bookstore (preferably independent) that has a good selection of children's books. I'm also looking for a good non-chain restaurant near the bookstore. I think the non-chain restaurant part is probably more important to Lulu (I'm not kidding) than the independent bookstore part. So if you can think of a great little not expensive place near a Barnes and Noble, I'd be happy to hear about that too. Here in Chapel Hill I'd send them to Flyleaf and then maybe Lucha Tigre, but I don't know as much about Durham. By inexpensive I don't mean dirt cheap, just not something that would feel pushy. Any thing come to mind? Greatly appreciate any suggestions.
