World of Beer Festival Coming to Raleigh

Raleigh, North Carolina
Saturday, April 14, 2012
Moore Square, Downtown
Afternoon Session: 12 PM - 4 PM
Evening Session: 6 PM - 10 PM 
 
This is a fun event where you can come and sample beers from some of our great local craft breweries as well as other brewers from around the country. Enjoy live music and local food vendors. This event is taking place downtown in Moore Square and after attending last year, I can say,  its a lot of fun! I loved talking to the local brewers and learning more about the ever growing and exciting craft beer phenomenon. There are two sessions, an afternoon and an evening session. Bands and a guide to all the beers that will be represented will be out soon. Tickets go on sale at the end of this month. A local Raleigh graphic designer Wesley Hare entered his artwork and won the poster competition that was held so his work will be incorporated into the festival marketing items (as seen here). 
 
We are putting this on our calendar. Great event to get out and kick off the start to Spring!! Find out more here: http://allaboutbeer.com/gather-for-beer/world-beer-festival/raleigh-nc/    See you there!!

Another new hot spot coming to Raleigh



Looks like another new restaurant is headed our way downtown Raleigh very soon! Opening this Spring, Oro Restaurant & Lounge. Appears that it will be a tapas type of place with all different kinds of global food offerings being served on small plates. Located at RBC Plaza on the corner of Martin and Wilmington (18 E. Martin). Look forward to more info on this new restaurant. Stay tuned!!
