December’s birthstone is Blue Topaz – a radiant gem that looks stunning in all types of jewelry. Though Topaz comes in a variety of colors, its most popular color is blue, and a variety of shades are available. While the stone starts out colorless, gem treatments can change the color, and Blue Topaz first became available in the early 1970s. In Ancient Greece, Topaz was thought to give the wearer strength. It’s incredibly versatile, affordable, and very hard, making it a great choice for jewelry worn every day.
PLACES TO GO :
C. Grace Cocktail Bar
C. Grace is a speakeasy style jazz bar that specializes in great music and incredible cocktails. While they have a great drink list to try out, we are big fans of their whiskey sour, authentically made with an egg white. We love taking a step back in time and grabbing a drink at this location – for a perfect night out in December, we suggest grabbing dinner at MOFU and a cocktail at C. Grace.
PLACES TO EAT:
MOFU-Shoppe in Raleigh is a great spot with an eclectic atmosphere with delicious dishes. The owners were winners on Season 6 of “The Great Food Truck Race”, and they opened MOFU-Shoppe with their earnings from the show. A few of our favorite dishes are the Salmon Tartare (great to share), Pork & Dumplings, and our absolute favorite – the Honey Sriracha Brussels Sprouts. This place has everything from Octopus to Braised Short Ribs, so check it out!
