Friday at 5


Friday at 5 is an organic, unaffiliated happy-hour meetup that drives a gathering of good people to random downtown Raleigh destinations at 5 pm on Friday.

This “un-networking” meetup began in 2011 and has no official agenda other than to create informal connections and conversation over tasty beverages at a cool downtown venue.  Everyone is welcome to attend, and all are encouraged to spread the word informally. Stay as little or as long as you want, and feel free to just come whenever you can make it.

The location of the meetup moves each time to a different location in downtown Raleigh, and the best way to know where to go for a given Friday is to follow Twitter account @FriAt5 or the conversation found at hashtag #FriAt5.
