Alert! Alert! The first 200 people to show up to this event get two free drinks and free food. If you’re like me, that’s all you need to hear. Held at the Southern Smoke Eatery & Tavern in Winston-Salem at 6 p.m., the Triad After Work Social is a “business networking series provides a casual networking opportunity” designed for “meeting fellow professionals and establishing long-lasting business relationships.

It’s also dollar beer night at twin dive-bars College Hill and Westerwood Tavern in Greensboro so…

Not feeling social? Stay at home and read the new issue of Triad City Beat that came out today (under the IN PRINT tab), listen to the first episode of new radio show Greensboro ON, or watch this new music video for the abundantly-talented Durham band Sylvan Esso (currently on tour in Amsterdam). I went to high school with Amelia Meath, one half of the duo, who is now probably the most famous person I know.
