Hey guys,

 

I just wanted to write a quick list of things going on this week/weekend since there's quite a lot.  While I'm not scheduling a meetup for them, they are fun/interesting things to do and I figured that people are always looking for fun things to do!

 

First, if you check out the Grad Student young professional meet up you'll see that there is a brewgaloo festival happening in Raleigh on Saturday.  This is going to be awesome, lots of beer/bands/FOODTRUCKS.  I don't know what it is about food being prepared and served from a truck that makes it so delicious, but wow...If there is still room in their meet up, sign up, if not...well just come on your own or with some friends.  Maybe we'll run into each other.

 

The other thing happening this weekend is the Piedmont farm tour.  This is out towards Durham and Orange counties, but if you're into sustainable agriculture, this farm tour is for you.  I'm probably going to head out on Sunday to scope out some of the farms.  To those of you who are saying "this sounds kind of weird, why would anyone want to go on a farm tour", I'll say this.  In Roxboro there is a Bison farm where you can meet face to face with one of these enormous animals.  Once you are done saying hi to them, you can go buy one of their relatives in burger form.  Also they sell fresh Bison meat as well.  Mostly though, you are supporting local agriculture and helping keep NC sustainable.

 

Here is the link about the farm tour (Happens on sat/sun).  There is a cost to visiting the farms, but if you have a full carload of people, they only charge per vehicle.

I hope you all have a good weekend and don't forget to sign up for meet and greet monday's OR our Frankies Fun Park adventure next thursday!
