We’ve had a fantastic first week of #GoLove2015! Thank you to all of you who chose your adventure with us and tried something new or experienced an old favorite in the Raleigh area.
In case you didn’t, we wanted to bring all of our great #GoLove2015 suggestions together in one place.
But first, we wanted to give you the best tip of all: make sure you use our trip planner to find the fastest routes so that you can get to all of the best Valentine’s spots ease.
Hidden in the middle of Hillsborough St. in Raleigh,this local gem is easy to miss. Inside, you’ll find old lanes that have served NC State students and Raleigh residents for decades. It’s a great spot to grab a bucket of beers and learn how to keep your own score.
Local Beer Local Band
If you appreciate local offerings then it doesn’t get better than this. Tir Na Nog offers up this local duo every Thursday and without a cover it also happens to be a cheap and easy night out.
Make sure to check out their schedule to see what bands and beers are on tap.
We’re lucky to live in a place that attracts big acts and the PNC Center is where they come. Whether it’s a sporting event like Canes Hockey or an Avett Brothers’ concert, the PNC Center has an event for you.
Did we mention this weekend’s schedule includes Monster Jam?
Goodnights Comedy Club
Sometimes after a long week you really just need a good laugh. Goodnights Comedy serves up just that. In addition to the comedians who stop here on their tours, Goodnights also has clean and all-bets-off dirty comedy shows. Make sure to double check the line-up so you don’t mix up those last two!
The Raleigh Flea Market takes over the fairgrounds every Saturday and Sunday. Take a stroll and look for that hidden gem to complete whatever collection you’ve got going. It’s the perfect relaxed activity for a weekend afternoon.
Jazz Night at the NCMA
You may hear North Carolina Museum of Art and only think of art but there’s a lot more than that going on. Every Friday night the NCMA hosts Art in the Evening. Grab some delicious food or just wander around the gallery and enjoy the live music.
If you’ve been following #GoLove2015 you’ve already heard about this spot. The killer Laotian Restaurant and Bar is one of Raleigh’s best and is the perfect spot for a romantic date. Look over their menu but we recommend the Pork Belly Soup.
Fox Liquor Bar
Last but not least, the best way to end any romantic evening is with drinks. Fox Liquor Bar serves up gourmet, delicious cocktails in an atmosphere that can’t be beat. We can give you a link to their menu but it’s too difficult to decide so your best bet is to order up a bartender’s choice.
Thanks for going on this adventure with us! We’ll see you back here next week with all of our favorite Durham picks.
Have a happy Valentine’s Day and, as always, thanks for riding with us!
