Yes – that’s right. You can officially enjoy happy hour (well, as much as the State of North Carolina will let us) within the 7,000 acres of the Research Triangle Park!

Starting this week, there will now be some sort of event happening each and every Thursday evening (and some mornings, too). Happy Hour at 800 Park Offices Drive will fill in the weeks that we don’t host RTP 180 or Disrupt (happening Oct. 9th). There are also a ton of other events taking place over the next couple of weeks. Read below to see a full list of what’s to come!
