Three Dog Night to rock the fairways at Pinehurst

Have you ever seen a rock band perform on the fairways of a golf course?

Neither have we, but it’s happening May 2.

Three Dog Night will take the stage from 5 to 7 p.m. during the 3rd annual Pinehurst Concours d’ Elegance,  a vintage car showcase of rare and pristine collector automobiles.

The band, which had more Top 10 hits between 1969 and 1974 than any other group, is known for the songs “Mama Told Me (Not To Come),” “Joy to the World” and “Black and White.”

They recently added “Heart of Blues” and the a cappella ballad “Prayers of the Children” to their set list, proving they have plenty of songs left after four decades on the road.

The Grammy-nominated band, which had 21 consecutive Top 40 hits, has performed more than 2,200 shows since 1986, adding new fans to its legion of faithful followers.

Admission to the show is included with the purchase of a Pinehurst Concours ticket, which are on sale now for $40. Click here to purchase.

Make it a night by staying at the Four-Diamond Carolina Hotel or Holly Inn. Click here to book online or call 844-889-1077 to make reservations.

50th wedding anniversary brings couple back to Pinehurst


Mike and Nancy Law board a horse-draw carriage in front of the Carolina Hotel. The couple celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary Saturday.

By Sarah Campbell

When Mike and Nancy Law started making plans for their 50th wedding anniversary, they didn’t have to look far to find a place to celebrate.

The Raleigh couple knew it had to be Pinehurst.

After all, they spent their brief, but memorable honeymoon here. The pair wed in between semesters – Mike was attending North Carolina State University and Nancy was a student at East Carolina University.

“We only had a few days, so we knew it had to be somewhere close,” Mike said. “Neither of us had ever been to Pinehurst, but we knew it was a great resort.

“It turned out to be a wonderful place.”

For their golden anniversary, Nancy figured the couple would travel to Pinehurst for a nice dinner at the Carolina Dining Room.

But Mike knew the occasion called for a bigger celebration.

Add the Ryder Cup’s hummus to your party


Hummus 2

Can’t get enough hummus? Neither can we. 

It always starts with an innocent trip to fetch the hummus from the fridge. Then you have to decide what you’ll use to devour the creamy dip. Carrots, celery and sweet bell peppers are good, healthy options, but pita chips always seem to catch our eye. The crunch of the chip combined with the savory flavor of the hummus makes for a snack that’s nearly impossible to put down.

Last week, we gave you the recipe for the Ryder Cup Lounge’s Deconstructed Pork Nachos in preparation for the Super Bowl Sunday. If you want to give your guests a more figure-flattering option consider whipping up a batch of the restaurant’s hummus.

Red pepper is a popular flavor, but have you ever tried truffle hummus? Consider making a batch of each. Those who love the classic red pepper dip will have something to munch on and more adventurous eaters will be impressed with your unique creation.

Sounds like a win-win.
