Weather your face is already painted for football season (no judgement) or you’re carrying around your own fork and hot sauce for resto week season (it’s a thing) or you just want to blow off some steam by throwing axes and drinking beer (yes, for real), this weekend in the Triangle won’t let you down.
Foodies, this one’s for you. Forks up for the inaugural North Hills Restaurant Week with over 30 deals across 15-plus haute restos—culminating Sunday Aug. 12. Eat up.
Football fans — it’s time. Pull out your gear and get your game face on for a season of down-to-the-wire gridiron goodness, kicking off with Meet the Pack Day (Sun., 5-7 p.m.) and plenty of sports bar hot spots around town for NFL preseason viewing. Keep Pounding!
Belly up @ Bison Bar for a fundraiser cookout to benefit veterans and their battle with PTSD. Teaming up with Veteran Six, the Sunday afternoon (4-8 p.m.) promises feel good fun—plus free food and a huge raffle to boot.
Down the hatchet—no, really. Literally throw hatchets while you figuratively toss brews down the hatchet at Gizmo’s Epic Axe event (Sat., 3 p.m.)
Socialize for social justice at Black August in the Park. The annual event in Durham—hosted by the collective of the same name—is reminiscent of a black family reunion or a homecoming, with an additional emphasis elevating the causes of social justice orgs.
“Roll Up” for “The Thrill” of some Wiz Khalifa at the Wiz Khalifa & Rae Sremmurd: Dazed & Blazed Tour (Sun., 6 p.m.) @ Coastal Credit Union.
Sky light. Sky bright. First star i see tonight… is in a meteor shower through a telescope in a dope city park (Dix). Yes, for real. The stuff your childhood dreams are made of. See you there. Just make sure you wish upon that star tonight.
