    Any breweries you recommend?

    Re: Breweries.... In downtown Raleigh I'd recommend Burial Beer Co. (an Asheville, NC brewery that has a location in Raleigh now), Brewery Bhavana, Trophy Brewing, and Crank Arm Brewing. Outside of downtown I'm big fans of Lynnwood Brewing Company as well as Gizmo. Bond Brothers in Cary has some really good beer too.

    Sounds awesome. I'm coming down from NY to do Raleigh > Charlotte and if the sets are good I'm going to also plan to hit up Alpharetta & WPB.

    Hope you get Typical and DIDO in the opening run of shows. I still need Dreaming Tree and Spoon, but those seem like long shots. No matter what, it will be so exciting to have shows back

    Breweries in downtown or close to downtown - Crank Arm, Brewery Bhavana (doesn't open until 4pm though), Clouds (has a self-pour wall), Trophy and Little City.

    Not a brewery but there's also this (world's largest selection of draft beers): https://theraleighbeergarden.com/

    Also Whiskey Kitchen: https://www.whiskey.kitchen/location/

    And Bittersweet (cocktails, coffee and dessert bar): http://bittersweetraleigh.com/menu/

    For barbecue, the Pit downtown is good but if you have a car head to Smokey's BBQ Shack (actual barbecue side of the road shack made of cinder blocks) which is not too far from the airport. https://www.smokeysshack.com/

    If anyone has any extra decent Raleigh tickets, I've got Merriweather pits to trade and/or potentially some great SPAC seats.

    Hopefully Vegas 2020 was a good indication of how this tour will be.

    I like that thinking!

    I'm getting excited with everyone's great recommendations for nearby breweries, etc!

    I don't think this was answered... but how are the parking lots there? Is tailgating allowed? Not sure if COVID changes things.

    Thanks for the Raleigh Beer/BBQ suggestions....driving solo from 'Cuse, these will come in handy for some preshow activities and freshies for the lots...

    Anyone have the same for Charlotte? Thanks in advance! So looking forward to this trip and even though I am solo I know you're never really "solo"...meaning I can't wait bump into all of you at the bars/breweries.

    Parking in Raleigh is fine. It's a bit of shit show free for all getting out though. "People in every direction!" But it doesn't take long. I drive since I live here but I have heard that it can be hard to get an Uber afterwards.

    The parking lots are hard divided with landscaping so if you are trying to meet up with people you'll want to make sure you come in from the same direction so you park in the same lot. (see the attached picture) ETA: It's hard divided for cars. Obviously people can cross the landscaping but that's a PITA depending on what you are hauling across two lots.

    Tailgating is fine. Not a lot of crazy tailgating going on but you can have pop ups and I've never seen anyone policing the parking lots really. I have not heard of any changes due to COVID.

    Have not been to Charlotte so someone else will need to share that info.

    Thanks Jen for all your help with the Raleigh area and venue!

    Will definitely be hitting up Whiskey Kitchen.

    Along those lines - Iím
    Planning on staying on downtown Charlotte (never been). The downtown area looks like it has good food/drink stuff. And Iíll have a car if I want to get out further. Any reason not to stay downtown?

    Does anyone know if any downtown places will have a shuttle? That would be ideal.

    Does the Raleigh airport not have rental cars on site? Everything I'm seeing is directing me to some place ~20 minutes away. Just want to make sure I'm looking correctly.

    In Raleigh? Not that I know of. Raleigh isn't much of a DMB destination so there aren't "typical" pre-show DMB hangouts. But since it's the tour opener and suddenly a destination you can always plan an Ants takeover from this thread! This may be the most hopping that an NC tour thread has ever been. The arena is not far from downtown though if you want to take an Uber. I think it's maybe 5 miles.

    The Raleigh Airport definitely has rental cars. I know Hertz and Enterprise are both there on airport property plus a bunch more. Just did a search and it looks like they are all on Rental Car Drive. Never actually paid attention that that was the name of the internal airport street. See Map.

    Thanks for this. Real bizarre. Even putting the airport specifically into the pickup location took my to the different place.

    Not that I'd mind getting an Uber to the off-site spot, but seems like an unnecessary step that I won't want to have to deal with once we land.

    There actually isn't even a bar right near the arena, it's kind of in a weird place but the lot is great for tailgating.

    They say an hour before gate times and gate times are ab hour before the show. I have seen them open the lots about 2.5 hours early on occasion though. BTW, the parking, getting into and out of the venue lots are a complete nightmare in Raleigh so just plan accordingly

    Wow only 3 hours of tailgating? That's depressing.

    Didn't mean to skip this question. What sort of food do you like, how long will you be in Raleigh, where are you staying (generally like downtown, Cary, Garner, etc...) and will you have a car?

    I think that's will be a good statement to try to get the lot hours changed.

    One thing you can do is bring in food in a clear 1-gallon sized Ziploc type plastic bag. Unless that rule has changed. So you can always bring the tailgate (food at least) in with you.
