There’s a lot going on this week, so don’t let the excitement of Monday' eclipse these other events, especially the taco-related ones! Here’s what’s happening in Raleigh this week:

Monday: Eclipse Viewing Parties
What better way to witness this rare solar eclipse than from one of Raleigh’s most awesome rooftop bars? Grab your eclipse viewing glasses and head on down to Taverna Agora, Raleigh Beer Garden or Hibernian! The sun and the moon are scheduled to do their thing just after 2pm.

Tuesday: Tacos at Bare Bones
It’s Taco Tuesday at Bare Bones! Enjoy the Chef’s Featured Taco Trio along with half-off tequilas and $3 Caronas!

Thursday: Tacos and Tasting
Didn’t get enough tacos on Tuesday? Head to The Raleigh Wine Shop on Thursday at 6pm. Las Gringas food truck will be serving tacos while you enjoy a free tasting of American and Portuguese wines!

Sunday: International Block Party
Enjoy food, drinks, dance and culture from around the world right here in Downtown Raleigh at the International Block Party!  The event takes place at City Plaza at 3pm.

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!
