What to Do and See Downtown This Week!

Tasty Drinks and "Dusties" at The Crunkleton

Hopefully, you've been following along this week on Instagram as The Crunkleton "takes over" our page. They've been highlighting their amazing drinks, knowledgeable staff, and unique aspects that make this West Franklin cocktail bar a go-to haunt for many Chapel Hill natives. 

Did you know about their case of "dusties" - or antique spirits - some of which predate the Prohibition? Drop in on the way to Thursday's Movies Under the Stars (we're showing Coco) for a Disco Devil, the super refreshing summer drink pictured above. 
Parking is easier than ever in Downtown Chapel Hill!
