Here’s your chance to help three guys achieve their dream of opening up a brewery in right here in downtown Raleigh on W. Davie Street. They are now 3 years into their project and have decided to use the popular website, Kickstarter as their platform to raise money in order to complete the brewery. They need to reach $35,000 in pledges by February 17th in order to receive funding for Crank Arm Brewing Co. As of today, they have just 5 days to raise a little over $8,000 to reach their goal. Should they fall short of their goal, everyone that pledged their support will keep their money and Crank Arm Brewing Co. will have to look elsewhere for funding.
The Triangle real estate market has a lot to look forward to! Last year there was an increase of nearly 21% more sales in 2011.

The new owners of the Sheraton Raleigh Hotel in downtown plan to make many major improvements to the property to give it a more urban feel. Some of the updates include updating the lobby, common areas as well as the 4,600 square foot restaurant space along Fayetteville Street.
Though I would share this hilarious photo that someone posted on Facebook today. Made me think of my most recent post about the Titanic Exhibit at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences.
Thanks to Samad, Lorenzo and Cat for providing the beautiful venue!
