Daily Beat: Sept. 1, 2014

It’s Labor Day. On any given day, North Carolina is the least unionized state in America, switching back and forth with South Carolina. In practice, we honor cheap labor more than we do the women and men who perform work in this state. Even though sentiment is cheap, we should take a moment to thank the people whose sweat, gumption and creativity provides services to our communities and gives value to our businesses.

• If you really want to do something to change the sorry state of affairs in North Carolina, the first step is to get together with people of like mind and talk about it. The NC NAACP’s #TalkUnion Tour stops at the Beloved Community Center, located at 417 Arlington St. in Greensboro, at noon.

• City offices are closed in Greensboro, Winston-Salem and High Point for the holiday. Garbage pickup is delayed by one day.

Tonight:

• Prez Parks and the crew with Gate City Get Down spins soul wax at Westerwood Tavern, located at 508 Guilford Ave. in Greensboro, at 10 p.m.

Hoots Beer Co. names beer after Triad City Beat

Triad City WheatYesterday we were incredibly flattered when the guys at Hoots Beer Co. decided to name a beer after us.

Hoots recently started brewing its own beer, and yesterday released a new wheat brew. They hadn’t thought of what to name it, and while our Editor-In-Chief Brian Clarey there, stopping by to pick up a generously donated keg of it for our party at Delurk Gallery, they opted for “Triad City Wheat.”

Unbelievable.

The beer from this Winston-Salem brewery — as you can see in the photo — is 4 percent ABV, and was a huge hit at the party. If you missed it, or you want more, stop by Hoots Roller Bar in the West End Mill Works and ask for a pint of the City Wheat. I doubt you’ll be disappointed.
