Raleigh Specials Tonight - Amy's Picks for the Week: April 30-May 6, 2018

Posted by Amy Howard • Raleigh Specials Tonight

This is one of those weeks where there's so much going on, I don't even know where to start. First of all, there's First Friday: Raleigh's art walk, which is always on the first Friday of every month. Then, we have Out! Raleigh, Cinco de Mayo, AND the Kentucky Derby happening on Saturday, May 5. Hope you are ready to party!  Here's what's happening this week:

Wednesday: Specialty Keg Night at Lonerider

Hang out with the outlaws at Lonerider on Wednesday! At 6 pm., they'll be tapping a special keg of Hoppy Ki Yay IPA dry hopped with El Dorado, strand of hops that add juicy stone fruit and other tropical flavors.

Thursday: Science Trivia

Calling all science-y people! It's your time to shine! Gather a team and head to Daily Planet Cafe at 7 p.m. There will be prizes and BRAGGING RIGHTS for the winning team!

Saturday: Derby de Mayo

Now you don't have to decide between a Kentucky Derby Party or a Cinco de Mayo party! Flying Saucer hosts Derby de Mayo starting at 11 a.m. There will be tequila barrel aged beers and Kentucky bourbon barrel aged beers. Dress up and pick the winning horse for a prize!

As always, you can find more things to do in our Events listings and on our Specials page. See you next week with a fresh round of picks, Raleigh!
