Issue 122: Get Out! Your Guide to Summering in Raleigh & the Triangle

May 19, 2016 11:12AM ● Published by Grace Drescher

Looking for something to do this summer? We’ve got you covered in this issue of the Downtowner, “Get Out! Your Guide to Summering.” Outdoor movies, concerts, food truck rodeos, derbies, hiking, biking, and kayaking are just a few of the great summer activities you’ll find inside. Stay in the know with new restaurants, nightlife, and businesses in Around Town News and learn more about local entrepreneur-made-it-big-time Scot Wingo in our 10 Questions this month. Christy pays a taco-heaven visit to the new Virgil’s Original Taqueria on Salisbury Street. Think it’s too hard to go carless? Read Robert’s story in Willfully Without Wheels and see how he does it. Russell brings us “Bottle Shops, Part 3” in this issue, and checks out four more local bottle shops. He also writes about some of the powerful women who will perform in Durham’s upcoming Warehouse Blues Series. City of Raleigh Museum director Ernie Dollar takes us on a trip to the past to look for the Great Wall of Raleigh. Enjoy!

Get Out!
