Are you finding it impossible to get a reservation for Mother’s Day at this point? Order a brunch package to-go! Triangle on the Cheap has a nice round-up of Triangle restaurants that are offering family meal packages that you can enjoy at home, so you can save the day.
Killjoy’s new spring cocktails are here and there is something fun for everyone to try… like their vegan cocktail. Yes, please! Take a look at the new menu or better yet, head in and try them for yourself this weekend!
Last weekend was the Kentucky Derby (obviously) and our friends at Dram & Draught hosted quite the party with proceeds benefitting CORRAL Riding Academy. Why are we talking about the past? CORRAL is hosting a virtual 5K from May 21 to May 28, 2021, and now is the time to register. Throw on your running sneakers, whip out your bicycle, rollerblades, motorbike, or mount your horse, and let your community know that you are walking, running, or riding to support CORRAL’s girls.
And they are off… to the bars! This week’s Friday Five is all about the Kentucky Derby, with a contest for your four-legged friends, mixed in. 🐶 Sit back, grab a Mint Julep, and let us talk derby to you, it’s time for your Friday Five!
Do they always wear their leash and ID tag, stay out of playing fields and playgrounds, and make sure you’re picking up after them? All month long, the Town of Cary, has been hosting a “Who’s a Good Dog?” contest and today is the last day to enter. We know, we know, this is in Cary, not Raleigh, but the prize is worth the quick drive. Head to Bond Park, Hemlock Bluffs, Thomas Brooks Park, the dog parks at Godbold Park and Jack Smith Park, or Downtown Park today and snap a photo of your leash-wearing dog making the “pawmise” to be entered win.
Patio season is here and Downtown Raleigh’s rooftop bar, 10th & Terrace, is now opening at noon on Fridays and Saturdays! It’s the perfect way to start the weekend. Cheers! 😎
Our favorite whiskey bar is doing it big for the derby. Dram & Draught will have the race on the big screens inside and outside and juleps will be flowing all day long. A portion of each $12 Woodford Reserve Mint Julep sold on Saturday will be donated to Horsepower Therapeutic Learning Center and CORRAL Riding Academy. Let’s get dressed for the first time in a year and celebrate! Hats and seersucker are highly encouraged.
Head to Raleigh Beer Garden on Saturday at 11 a.m. for horse racing and Mint Juleps. There will be a contest for best hat and prizes will be given away throughout the day! The Kentucky Derby will be playing on all the TVs.
