Check out this Canadian video about urban parking requirements. Carrboro does a lot of things right but we agree its time to remove parking requirements for downtown business’s. We want a more vibrant, safe, walkable and bike-able downtown.

Head to Durham this evening for the Moogfest talent announcement at Motorco! Our very own Rubber Room Rye Pale will be on special. We are excited the festival will be a little closer to us this year with what looks to be a great line-up.
Last Friday folks from Steel String, YesterYears Brewery and Beer Study got together and volunteered their time to build houses with Habitat for Humanity, Orange County, NC. We put vinyl siding up and helped clear the worksite of scrap wood and vinyl. Everyone had a great time, we all plan on going back and helping more. Anyone aged 16+ can volunteer to build with habitat, no construction experience necessary. You will have lots of fun and learn valuable skills, all while helping provide much needed affordable housing. Pictured – Carly and Alfie securing vinyl panels.
Come on out tomorrow eve to help celebrate the first announcements of performers for the upcoming Moogfest. We’ll be featuring Steel String Rubber Room Rye Pale for $3 a pint to make it even more festive!
