Pirates in North Carolina are part of our culture, heritage, and history.

Wednesday Wind Down

Checking out some great places around the Triangle to enjoy a wind down on a Wednesday

If you are looking for some great places to “wind down” midweek, there are lots of great options around the Triangle. From wine to wellness to watching movies, there is something sure to please.

Wine Down @ Peak of the Vine 

We recently stopped by Peak of the Vine at its new location in Historic Downtown Apex. The Peak of the Vine is a unique combination of a wine lounge and wine shop. Enjoy the warm and friendly atmosphere of our lounge as you sip on exceptional wines from around the world; or choose your favorite bottles to take home.

On our visit, Kelly enjoyed the daily sangria special while I enjoyed a Chardonnay from Slovakia. Both were great and were a perfect way to enjoy “Wine Down Wednesday.”

The Peak also features live music, karaoke and open mic nights. If you are looking for a great place to meet with friends in Historic Downtown Apex, you should consider a visit to the Peak of the Vine.

Cheers! Wine Down Wednesday at Peak of the Vine

If wine isn’t your thing here are some other great ways to enjoy your Wednesday wind down.
