Charlotte NC l@@king for Colemans or Knorr Shepherds Pie Seasoning Packets...

I'm pretty sure that Harris Teeter carries Knorr products. Not sure if they'll have what you're looking for, but that's where I would check.

Need High Point NC recs

Mama Mia's off of Westchester in High Point I've always found to be really good for Italian. The owner is straight from Italy, his name is Sal. The only the problem I've found is that some dishes change depending on the chef that's preparing them. It can be a little disappointing when you go to order your favorite dish and something about it just isn't the same. But the atmosphere has always been nice, not too crowded, but a decent personality and ambiance.

Have been in Greensboro for 2.5 years - still can't find the unique?

Well I don't have friends in GSO...so, not very likely I'd have friends in Raleigh. Also, not going to drive an hour to go eat by myself. I'm confident to go somewhere alone, I don't see an issue with that. I just don't want to go to a bar alone. I don't think that's a very wise decision being female.

I've been to the usual places, but I don't know...perhaps I'm not even sure what I'm looking for. Just something different I guess. I'm sick of the chain restaurants.

Thanks for the advice!

Thanks for the suggestions. A few of them I've been to. I'm not really a fan of Lucky 32, but I happen to adore Pastabilities. M'Couls ...been there. It's okay, but sitting at a bar by yourself when you're female isn't actually the same as it is for guys so I'm hesitant about that. Perhaps I'm destined to be sitting on the couch every weekend, lol, I don't know. Sad...sad...sad.

I've lived in Greensboro now for 2.5 years. I don't have a huge budget to play with, but I enjoy food and experiencing new things. Part of the excitement of going out to eat is the atmosphere for me. I'm a single girl with zero unmarried friends in this state and I'm tired of sittin' around and missing out. I'm looking for comfortable places to seek out and take myself to that aren't just going and sitting at some chain restaurant and looking sad. haha. I can't wait on anyone else so I have to just get out there! Any ideas of some unique, interesting places to go?

Also - any good wine tours around here? I'm originally from NY (The Finger Lake region) and loved going on the tours back home. I'd love to find something like that to do here.

Thanks!
