Downtown deck rates change today, street meter hours increase soon.

If you're parking downtown, you'll pay less in a deck -- up to a point. New parking rates go into effect today, and it makes deck parking cheaper for the first few hours.

The first four hours will decrease from $2/hour to $1.50/hour for most decks. After four hours, the rate goes back to $2/hour. The maximum day rate is increasing to $14 instead of $12. 

Event parking will also increase from $7 to $10.

As soon as later this month, street parking will gradually increase to incentivize people to park in decks, the transportation reporter at the News & Observer reported. Currently, it's $1 to $1.25/hour to park on the street in downtown. 

You'll want to double check the hours where you're parking, too. As the new street meters are installed, the hours will increase.

Glenwood South and central district of downtown will increase metered hours until 6 p.m. On Hillsborough Street, it will go to 8 p.m., the N&O went on to say.

Layered Croissanterie, the place, is worth a visit alone. Their light-filled, airy and modern space with confectionery-colored decor will give your mood a sugar rush.

But onto the recommendation: I finally tried the brown butter crookie (see the crookie's inside here). It's a croissant drizzled with chocolate and topped with flecks of salt, filled with a decadent soft cookie that's more akin to cookie dough than most. Besides the brown butter crookie, Layered Croissanterie has a rotating list of flavors of cruffins (croissant + muffins), danish and more types of flaky goodness. Visit them Tuesdays-Sundays.

The Pour House Music Hall is adding a record store! The venue in the Moore Square area of downtown announced it's adding a new and used record shop on the second floor of the venue. Retail hours will be 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily and they plan to open in late October. 

If you've been on the hunt for Japanese whisky in Raleigh (I have), you're in luck. Plates Kitchen is doing a patio pairing tonight with konoro yakitori (a style of Japanese grilling) mixing two food trends into one food event. 

Want to be a part of a world record attempt? Raleigh Beer Garden is trying to break a record for the largest tap takeover, with 150 taps to Wicked Weed later this month. You can buy tickets for the Oct. 19 event here

And on the pumpkin beat... You shared some additional pumpkin spice ideas after last week's PSL list. More local coffee shops with pumpkin lattes include Jubala (find them in North Raleigh at Lafayette Village or near NC State) and Benelux Coffee (I like their Cameron Village location). 

Not a coffee person? Sweet and Fluff cotton candy has a pumpkin spice in its fall flavors, and Morgan Street Food Hall's Raleigh Rolls is creating a rolled ice cream flavored All Spice Pumpkin starting today!

Thanks for reading this edition of the Raleigh Convergence!
