Raleigh Night Market 

Nov. 14, 5:30–10:30 p.m.

City Market, 215 Wolfe St., Raleigh, raleighnightmarket.com, free

November is one of those months where the urge to walk around with a hot beverage suddenly becomes irrepressible. Enter the last Raleigh night market of 2019, which will feature a host of musicians (Hyde County Ramblers, Bearded Whiskey, David D’Angelo, and The Red Vibes), and more than a hundred food and retail vendors. 


Nov. 14, 6–9 p.m.

Artspace, 201 E. Davie St., Raleigh, 919-821-2787, artspacenc.org, $50

All fall, Artspace has been examining different parts of Southern identity with the exhibits Dirty South and Heirloom. At this family-style dinner—which includes a meal prepared by local chefs and two drink tickets—guests can eat and celebrate the end of the season. Following dinner, artists David Eichenberger, Maria Frati, and Renzo Ortega will create screen-printed designs. 

Drink + Draw 

Nov. 14, 6–8 p.m.

Lantern Restaurant, 423 W. Franklin St., Chapel Hill, 919-969-8846, lanternrestaurant.com, free

Two local Wallaces—Emily, author of the recently published roadside food manual Road Sides, and Daniel, director of the creative writing program at UNC-Chapel Hill and the author of Big Fish—come together for a light evening of drinking and drawing. The coloring books on hand will feature one-of-a-kind depictions of “lesser-known roadside attractions.” Snacks are provided, and Lantern’s cash bar will be close by.
