The Best Memorial Day Sales of 2020

After weeks spent indoors, you’ve become very well-acquainted with what exactly needs to stay in your home (and what needs to go). Plus, you’ve had plenty of time to look at home makeovers, bedroom design ideas and outdoor spaces that inspire, leaving you ready to give every room a refresh. Luckily, Memorial Day sales are here to help make your budget go as far as possible.

As NC restaurants weigh reopening, here’s what to expect.

Even if you don’t know Sharky’s Place in North Raleigh, you know neighborhood spots like it. There are pool tables and cold beer and a line of dart boards. It’s comfortably dark, with the glow of neon and television screens offering most of the light. It’s a quintessential neighborhood place, the kind you’ve likely been missing now for more than two months.

As a point of pride, Sharky’s Place owner Randy Wilson said his restaurant never closes, not for snow or hurricanes or holidays. For 28 years, Wilson said the doors of Sharky’s have been open and the beer has been flowing. But that stopped two months ago because of the coronavirus.

As soon as he’s able, Wilson expects to reopen Sharky’s, which could be as early as this weekend.

Wilson isn’t worried about the restaurant’s survival, even though business is down 90%. “It ain’t going anywhere,” he said. But

Tirico hosting live golf from 1,000 miles away

Mike Tirico returns to his role as host Sunday on NBC when live golf is shown on television for the first time in more than two months, and he can’t wait.

”Someone gets over a ball and we don’t know the outcome,” Tirico said Friday.

This is hardly a return to normal.

The charity Skins game – Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson against Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolff – will be at Seminole Golf Club, the fabled Donald Ross design in south Florida that has never been seen on television.

Tirico will be in the corner of his office in Michigan, some 1,300 miles away.

The soft return of golf includes testing for COVID-19, thermal readings, social distancing and limited access. That goes for the television production crew.

Rich Lerner from Golf Channel is doing play by play, with NBC analysts Paul Azinger and Gary Koch. All three will be
