It’s hard to believe it is already March. I don’t know where the time has gone, but the good news is things start picking up now that warmer weather is just around the corner. You can view my full list of upcoming spring events and festivals here. In the meantime, here are a few suggestions of fun things to check out for the weekend of March 4th through the 6th.

First Friday in Raleigh
It’s a new month which means another great chance to check First Friday in downtown Raleigh. I recommend stopping by Brew Coffee to for music drinks. Also visit the inaugural First Friday event at Devolve Moto on Glenwood Avenue. Live painting of custom helmets, and Brooklyn Brewery Beer for $3. The market on Hargett Street in front of The Morning Times is always a lot of fun as well. Events typically run 6-9pm.
