Welcome to the first installment of #APATTFeatureFriday. We will be spending our Fridays putting the spotlight on charity events and philanthropic organizations in Raleigh, in order spread the news of how our city lends a helping hand.
The first feature we have for you is a unique “barcade” nestled in the Warehouse district of downtown Raleigh. It is one close to our hearts– because they have given back to us in particular! Boxcar Bar + Arcade is where your childhood memories of pinball machines and Mario Kart are coupled with your adult appetite for a cold craft beer. Patrons enjoy endless arcade game options from Jurassic Park to Space Invaders, while indulging in the extensive list of craft brews, cans, and bottles.
Amidst all the beverages and games, Boxcar has established a weekly tradition to give back to the community. Cleverly titled “Drink for a Cause,” this effort gives 15% of Wednesday night proceeds to an organization of their choosing. A Place at the Table was lucky enough to be selected as a recipient just a few months ago. Other worthy beneficiaries include Make-A-Wish and The V Foundation, among many others.
So head over to Boxcar on a Wednesday to support to this perfect medley of good drinks, good fun, and great causes!
