As the state capital, and the most important city in North Carolina, Raleigh has a unique history worth celebrating. If you’re looking for a night on the town where you can celebrate history by reliving the past, then look no further. Raleigh’s hottest party is Time Warp, and it’s coming up on April 21st. This 1970s themed blast from the past is the creation of the City of Raleigh Museum.
Since opening in 1993, the museum has collected and cared for artifacts, curated exhibits, and provided programming related to Raleigh’s history and heritage. Time Warp supports the museum’s mission to “Preserve Raleigh’s Past for the Future.” This party has everything, including:
Beer, wine, an assortment of LaCroix mixers, and a signature cocktail poured by ITBlake the bartender
Hors d’oeuvres and plates from some of your favorite Raleigh restaurants
A dance contest and a costume contest judged by our friends Mayor Nancy McFarlane and Joe Ovies, co-host of the Adam and Joe show on 99.9 FM The Fan
A Trolley Pub piñata filled with Bose noise cancelling headphones so you’ll never hear another WHHHOOOOOOO again
An auction of local art and a silent auction of items from Raleigh’s finest businesses and restaurants
Exhibits of ancient artifacts found in Raleigh, including:
Blueprints for the Weather Dome™
The street light from the DrunkTown ad. This will be available for photo opportunities.
Holy water blessed by the Pope during his visit to Raleigh
Recently discovered dinosaur fossils from Dix Park that will be used as a liquor luge
Plans for the Downtown Canal™
The mimosa glass from the first pre-noon brunch
There will also be an after party at Foster’s, where “Murder On The Dancefloor” will play on repeat.
An after-after party will be held in the Village Subway, where The Connells will perform.
