August through early Septemeber in NC is one of those seasons where some people are still basking in the summer heat while others prefer the cool breeze of climate-controlled air conditioning. Either way, we think there are some great things to do Downtown for everyone to enjoy!
Mason Jar Tavern
Summertime and margaritas just seem to go hand-in-hand. The Mason Jar Tavern located at 305 S Main Street knows this, and it shows!
With their collection of signature cocktails and margaritas such as the Blueberry Mint Moonshine containing Midnight Moon Blueberry Moonshine mixed with Sprite, muddled mint and lime, garnished with a mint sprig for only $8 you can’t go wrong! They even have outdoor seating for those “cooler” evenings!
Looking for that refreshing drink that just hits the spot? Well head on over to The Mill in the heart of Fuquay-Varina’s downtown, located at 146 S Main Street.
They offer a collection of craft beers, cold and hot coffee drinks, and even wine if you are feeling fancy! With their creative, inviting atmosphere and two-story seating areas, The Mill is a great place to sit, mingle, and relax after enjoying all Main Street has to offer.
Pints Ice Cream & Beer
With a combination like that, how could you go wrong? There’s no better way to cool off than trying out new, completely made from scratch ice cream flavors and drink combinations that will give everyone in the family something to look forward to!
Pints is located in the Varina district at 512 Broad Street. They offer your classic ice cream flavors and rotate new varieties weekly – It’s always a welcome surprise to see what creatively delicious flavor they’ve come up with each week. On a seasonal basis they feature decadent Boozy Milkshakes that marry your favorite cocktail with it’s equally delicious ice cream counterpart and top it with fresh whipped cream, hot fudge and a chocolate drizzle. This month is their 3rd anniversary so come on out and celebrate with our Friends at Pints!
Vicious Fishes is known for their awesome craft beer but we also get to enjoy their eclectic pub fare and craft cocktails here in Fuquay at their gastropub located at 132 S. Fuquay Ave.
Enjoy both indoor and outdoor seating with their sails and misting system newly installed above the patio! It is sure to provide relief from the heat without having to sacrifice your love of the outdoors while you and your friends enjoy all Vicious Fishes has to offer.
The Splash Pad is buckets of fun splashing under buckets of water! Take the kiddies and maybe yourself to the “coolest” place around, located at 900 S Main Street!
