The first weekend is September is going be a nice time to see Downtown Raleigh at its finest. Not only will Hopscotch attendees be swarming the streets Thursday, Friday and Saturday, but the typical monthly First Friday art walk will be happening that Friday September 7th. It's sure to be a madhouse in downtown, but that's a great thing. 

Today, Hopscotch released their official day parties for the fest, consisting of multiple parties on the streets of downtown throughout that weekend. The Raleigh Times has one on Saturday, but we've heard that there's another in the works for Friday.

The reason? Not only will it be a First Friday and/or Hopscotch celebration, but we hear that The Raleigh Times expansion, which we told you about back in May, will also be opening that Friday. We hear, but no official word yet, that the Times will be having a street fest that day to mark the opening with bands and more. We'll update with more information when it becomes available. 

Expect Hargett Street (and every other downtown street) to be filled with Raleigh residents and vistors alike.

    Nobody goes to the Times anymore. It’s too crowded.

    I LOVE the post-cyberpunk dystopian design of a plywood facade! And the poorly executed “19” harkens the legendary 80’s punk band Product 19. Beautiful, don’t change a thing!

    So…....Greg Hatem got a loan from the City of Raleigh for $50,000 for an expansion and then was able to purchase a building for $1.25million in Durham with talks of the $2.5 million renovation? How does this work? Shouldn’t small loans like that be going to people that need the $$? Empire gets what Empire wants.

    Regarding “Nobody goes to the Times anymore. It’s too crowded.”

    That make absolutely no sense at all. If it is crowded all the time then how come you say nobody goes there??
