So I was finally going to make the big trek to Raleigh to take my dear husband (aka "the boyfriend") out for his birthday to J. Betski's. He loves Polish food and I thought this would be a nice surprise. I just found out that they're closed for their annual vacation until Thursday. Did I mention that his birthday is TOMORROW?! So now I'm at a loss. There are five of us - we are well familiar with all the usual suspects in Durham and Chapel HIll. I wanted to try something new. Fun drinks. Nice atmosphere - not too precious. Great food. I don't know Raleigh - any ideas? I've read a lot of good things about Bonne Soiree in Chapel Hill but I'm afraid it's going to be too stuffy. Help me, ya'll! What should I do?
