Mega-Post of “Must Do” Events

Please forgive my brief hiatus last week/end… real estate licensing + more bridesmaid dresses mishaps + Amber’s bridal shower/luau with these girls = sleeping in AND a nap on Sunday.

So here’s your new calendar entries, which of course, have been added to my Google calendar for all to share:

August 9th – First Annual Beer Bourbon and BBQ Festival
Thank you Cary Magazine for the email tip!

Love of my life did this in Charlotte a few weeks back… I’ll have to get his expert opinion for a blog post follow-up.

“Attendees will be able to indulge in tasting the best beers, sipping the finest bourbon and eating the best barbeque that N.C. has to offer. More than 60 craft beers and more than 40 different bourbons wil be available for tasting. While enjoying the spirits and food, guests can listen to live music and shop 25 different art and craft exhibits. There will also be five tasting classes to heighten people’s awareness of the flavor profile of great bourbons.”

September 19th-20th – visitRaleigh.com Benefit Concert for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
“On September 19 and 20, 2008, Koka Booth Amphitheatre in Cary will play host to one of the biggest concert events of 2008 — the benefit concert for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum and the John Entwistle Foundation. Only 7000 people from around the world will be fortunate enough to score a ticket to what is certain to be a concert event that will be talked about for years to come.

A line-up comprised of some of Rock & Rolls best-known front men will perform some of their individual or groups greatest hits backed by an all-star band for the ages. In addition to the concert, other activities include a showing of vintage footage from past Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremonies, an afternoon music showcase of up-and-coming bands with North Carolina ties, pre-and post-concert parties, and weeklong celebration of the importance of Rock and Roll and its influence on society.”
