Title
Getting Around Campus & Durham, NC
Content
<h2><strong>Duke Campus</strong></h2> <p><strong>Campus Map:</strong> We made this <a href="http://zinelibraries.info/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2014/07/ZLUCCampusMap.pdf">handy map just for ZLUC</a>! Bookmark it or print it out to bring with you. Duke campus can be confusing and there is minimal signage, but the Library is beside the Chapel, which is a pretty big landmark most people can help you find. Here is <a href="http://library.duke.edu/rubenstein/sites/default/files/rubenstein/pdf/Side%20Entrance%20Directions.pdf">another map that shows the walking path</a> to the Library from the Bryan Center. </p> <p><strong>Parking</strong>: Visitor parking is available at the Bryan Center Parking Garage.***<br /><a style="line-height: 1.5em;" href="http://library.duke.edu/rubenstein/about/visit">Parking/directions for the library</a><span style="line-height: 1.5em;">. </span></p> <p>*** On Friday there will be an attendant due to a special event. You can tell that person you are with the Zine Librarians Conference, and they will charge $5 to park in the deck all day. (Bring cash!) Saturday, the deck should operate as usual, with payment upon exit ($2/hour).  </p> <h2><strong>RDU Airport Transportation</strong></h2> <p>There is not a cheap and easy way to get to campus from the RDU Airport since Super Shuttle left, but we are going to *try*  to make local arrangements for people who really need a ride and can't afford a cab ($40/one way). Or find a travel buddy and make plans to share a cab!</p> <p><a href="http://www.rdu.com/groundtrans/groundtrans.html">RDU Ground Transportation</a></p> <p><a href="https://www.skylinkshuttle.com">Skylink Shuttle</a> ($25 one-way, shared ride shuttle)</p> <h2><strong>Durham, NC</strong></h2> <p><a href="http://www.durham-nc.com/">Durham Visitor Information</a><br /><a href="http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/20/travel/36-hours-in-durham-nc.html?pagewanted=all&amp;module=Search&amp;mabReward=relbias%3Ar%2C%5B%22RI%3A7%22%2C%22RI%3A12%22%5D">NYTimes 36 Hours in Durham</a></p> <p><strong>Getting around Durham</strong></p> <p>The <a href="http://www.bullcityconnector.org/">Bull City Connector Bus</a>, will get you from campus to downtown for free! The BCC bus stop on campus is on <a href="https://www.google.com/maps/place/Trent+Dr+at+Duke+Hospital+South/@36.0052605,-78.9360689,18z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x89ace6aea95f1fd9:0x6dc374fb443a6d05">Trent Drive on the Duke Medical Center</a>. From the Bull City Connectors stops, you should be able to walk to most places in downtown Durham in 15 minutes or less. Download the <a href="http://www.gotriangle.org/developers/transit_apps">Triangle Transit Rider</a> app to your magical smart phone. The <a href="http://parking.duke.edu/buses_vans/bus_sched/C2_east_central_west.php">C-2 campus bus</a> runs irregularly and the route changes upon the whim of campus construction. </p> <p><b>Food</b></p> <div><a href="http://www.thepalaceinternational.com/">The Palace International</a></div> <div>Kenyan restaurant with lunch and dinner vegetarian options.</div> <div><a href="https://www.google.com/maps/place/The+Palace+International/@36.0152681,-78.91946,18z/data=!4m7!1m4!3m3!1s0x89ace47409bed8a9:0x3cca25d6e22c4e44!2sFoster+St!3b1!3m1!1s0x0:0x8161423ed1c2e386">1104 Broad St, Durham, NC 27705</a></div> <div> </div> <div><a href="http://motorcomusic.com/">Parts &amp; Labor at Motorco Music Hall </a></div> <div>The restaurant half of a music venue has small plates with enough veggie options to make a meal of it.</div> <div><a href="https://www.google.com/maps/place/723+Rigsbee+Ave/@36.003512,-78.9004,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x89ace4769d182701:0x92e42d829dc7d3bf">723 Rigsbee Ave, Durham 27701</a></div> <div> </div> <div><a href="http://www.kokyubbq.com/">KoKyu BBQ</a></div> <div>Korean barbecue food truck.</div> <div>Try the Unreal Buffalo Chicken Slider or the Sweet Potato TaKo for vegetarian options, or whatever is that night's special.  They often have picnic tables out, but I like walking down to <a href="https://www.google.com/maps/place/Surf+Club/@36.0029957,-78.9003114,18z/data=!4m6!1m3!3m2!1s0x89ace40c469fd7bf:0xed5d86f8efa14262!2sFederal!3m1!1s0x0:0xdb7438daeeeee3d7">Surf Club</a> to grab a beer and eat on their patio.</div> <div><span style="color: #222222;">Usually stationed at the <a href="https://www.google.com/maps/place/W+Geer+St+%26+Rigsbee+Ave/@36.00378,-78.9000332,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x89ace476844ee7df:0xa45525e7ec158703">corner of Rigsbee Ave. and Geer St.</a> for dinner, but check <a href="https://twitter.com/KoKyuBBQ">Twitter</a></span></div> <div><span style="color: #222222;"> </span></div> <div><span style="color: #222222;"><a href="http://toast-fivepoints.com/index.html">Toast</a></span></div> <div><span style="color: #222222;">Italian Paninoteca </span></div> <div><span style="color: #222222;">Vegans are probably going to strike out here, but there are some great options that don't involve Italian cured meats like the kale, ricotta, and pickled pepper panini. </span></div> <div><span style="color: #222222;"><a href="https://www.google.com/maps/place/Toast/@35.9969774,-78.9029984,18z/data=!4m7!1m4!3m3!1s0x89ace47409bed8a9:0x3cca25d6e22c4e44!2sFoster+St!3b1!3m1!1s0x0:0xe6bd96abc235d6a0">345 W.
