July 20th through the 22nd
This summer seems like it is going by so fast! Can you believe there are only 162 days until Christmas?
Well, don't pack away the flip flops just yet. There is still time to get out and enjoy the Triangle.
Here are a few ways to start your fun filled weekend:
FRIDAY JULY 20th
This Friday starting at 8 p.m., Marc Brown will be playing at Chef's Palette in Cary. If you like Southern Rock with a slightly easy going vibe, then you have to come out and see him!
The Chef's Palette creates the perfect back drop for this soulful sound. Enjoy a night on the patio with warm breezes or inside for a closer look.
Make sure you take the opportunity to sample the menu. This amazing food is prepared by one of North Carolina's top chef's, Ryan Summers. Ryan and 2 other chef's won the North Carolina Competition Dining Event Series in 2016!
Great music and great food; throw in a few friends and you have the recipe for a perfect night!
Friday night form 8 to 11 is Game night at Aloft in Durham. New in town? Looking to meet new people? Looking for something different as a first or second date? This is perfect. Triangle Game Night hosts an event where approximately 20 adults come out and play board games or card games. It is free to attend and there are over 75 different games to choose from. You can play with small or large groups and when you are finished with one game, choose another. You can enjoy drinks and appetizers while there and there are hosts to give you instructions and tips on each game!
Please visit their website for information on great party ideas like renting giant sized games, murder mystery games and hosting events!
SATURDAY JULY 21st
On the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Saturday of each month, Preservation Durham offers a free history walking tour. The tour leaves from Durham Farmers market at 10 a.m..
This Saturday the tour is featuring Durham's Civil Rights Legacy.

Durham Civil Rights Mural, 120 Morris Street
This is the last weekend to see BIG Fish at Theatre Raleigh. This is a great story about a traveling salesman and all his adventures that he encounters through out his travels. His tales, at least to his son, seem like larger than life fish stories that are obviously exaggerated and not true. His, now adult, son starts to investigate the wildly embellished stories and discovers a side to his father that he never new!
Ticket prices are around $35 with showtimes at 2 and 8 on Saturday. You can purchase your tickets on line but don't wait! Sundays performance is already sold out!
SUNDAY JULY 22nd
Enjoy the ultimate cookout experience Sunday from 1-5 in Durham! A Taste Of Soul NC hosts this "open to the public cookout" featuring face painters, craft vendors, music and several food trucks!
There will be ribs and burgers! There will also be vegan food, jamaican food, deserts and more!
If you are worried that it may be too hot to be around all that cooking, no worries! There will be some Italian ice AND a misting station to keep the heat miser away!
This Sunday, The Mason Jar Lager Company is hosting their Double Dare Event in Fuquay! This is not for the faint of heart. There will be 6 events that you will be challenged on. These endeavors will test your skills at making the best paper airplane, finding a pacifier in a whipped cream pie (without using your hands), and of course, several other equally impossible tasks!
Chirba Chirba will be there from 1-4 to provide sustenance as you endure these feats worthy of the Olympics!
