Holiday events begin this week 

If it seems like the holidays start earlier in Raleigh, there’s a reason for that. The Raleigh Christmas parade, the local kickoff to the holiday season, is traditionally held the weekend before Thanksgiving.

While that date stays the same, it’s 2020, so the holiday season in Raleigh will look a little different. We’re rounding up the creative ways our neighbors are adapting holiday traditions for a safe and festive season, from Christmas movie drive-ins to virtual parades. [list]

Lonerider's latest "Hideout" is now open in Five Points. It's the second hideout concept from the brewer, which has a food and drink focus. The menu from chef Ron West Jr. includes charcuterie and cheese plates, sourdough pretzels with Lusty Monk Mustard and Shotgun Betty Beer Cheese Sauce, salads, sandwiches and brick-oven pizzas.

The newly opened Lonerider at Five Points is in the former home of The Point at Glenwood and includes an outdoor patio.

Triangle Pop-Up's brick and mortar space is now open at 15 W Hargett Street in Downtown Raleigh. The tightly edited selections from 34 local makers include candles, artwork, handbags and belts, stickers, baby gifts, jewelry, skincare and more. They'll continue to host markets as well, see our holiday shopping event guide here.

Cotton House Craft Brewers will take over the former location of Jordan Lake Brewing Company, the Triangle Business Journal reports. Cotton House had been looking for a new production facility. The new location, which could be open in February or March, is less than a mile away from Cotton House's Downtown Cary location. [TBJ]

Glowing inflatables are in Downtown Cary at the site of the old library on Academy Street, CaryCitizen posted. It's part of Academy Street Artwork Projects (ASAP) Glow, "an outdoor display of light art installations on view in downtown Cary throughout 2020-21," the town's site says🌟
