The Oxford Gastropub, located in the heart of Fayetteville St. just a few blocks from the Convention Center sends news that they are aware of the convention this week and would love the opportunity to serve you all. We have great space, food and service, and live entertainment on Thursday night!
The Mint on Fayetteville Street has a great small plates menu and this First Thursday offers live jazz with the F.O. Finch Trio, 1/2 price martinis and other drink specials.
5 O'Clock Thursdays start this evening at 5pm at the Sheraton Raleigh Hotel with complimentary hors d'oeuvres and drink specials, and live music with Jason Adamo.
Arnez J appears live at Goodnight's Comedy Club just off Peace Street.
There is more live music at Irregardless Cafe close to NCSU campus and at 42nd Street Oyster Bar.
Those are some of the fun things that are happening tonight while NCTIES is in town. Have a great time exploring Raleigh, don't forget to take your SMART card and remember - the R Line stops at 2:15 a.m. so plan to be back to your hotel by then!
