Right Now in Raleigh
It's tough to believe that 2018 is already halfway over. Lucky for us, a ton of major events and festivals remain on this year's calendar in the Raleigh area. Save the date for these events and share with friends and family so they can join in on the fun!
Barbecue. Barbeque. Bar-b-que. BBQ. No matter how you spell it, we can agree on one thing: with a plate of barbecue in hand, all is right with the world. We treat barbecue a little differently here in North Carolina. Equal parts art, tradition, religion and celebration, barbecue is something to be taken seriously, made lovingly, laughed over and shared. We eat it in restaurants, at college football tailgates, in backyards and at church picnics, washed down with sweet tea, next to family and friends and strangers. We’ll argue about our favorite styles and the merits of this sauce or that, but in the end it’s barbecue—an essential part of North Carolina’s DNA.
