Last weekend was the Grand Opening of the 2nd location for Wine Authorities, near downtown Raleigh, in the new Person Street Plaza. This is definitely a welcome addition to the Mordecai and Oakwood communities. Wine Authorities is located near Yellow Dog Bakery. Wine Authorities offers 24 wines on tap, as well as local beer on tap. There is a large deli case with cheese, meat and they are selling fresh baked bread from Yellow Dog! Great selection of wines and cold beer in the fridge.
Saturday hosted the folks from Ponysaurus (I was thrilled to get to sample their amazing beers), Yellow Dog, Scratch, Piedmont Wine Imports, SlingShot coffee, Pie Pushers and even a magician for the kids (and adults!).
Despite the wet, windy weather (and tornado warnings apparently!) the turnout was great, the place was packed and its pretty guaranteed that this spot will soon be one of Raleigh's great places to shop, eat, drink and gather!
