RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK — UNC-TV Public Media North Carolina will premiere "North Carolina Weekend: A Weekend in Greensboro" at 9 p.m. Thursday on its UNC-TV PBS & More channel (Channel 4).

It also reflects on the city’s civil rights legacy with a look at the lunch counter sit-ins at the F.W. Woolworth Co. store.
Then, viewers will tour the city’s eclectic and diverse collection of restaurants and cuisines, Guilford County’s only legal distillery and a dream realized in the form of a candy store.
Finally, Garner eats brunch at Print Works Bistro inside the Proximity Hotel, named to Open Table’s list of Top 100 brunch destinations in the country.
