JULY EVENT #1 Morgan Street Food Hall
Friends & Family Invite Saturday, July 21st 4:00 - 9:00
Time to blow up the Warehouse District, again! Our friends at Morgan Street Food Hall are inviting Premium members to be part of the friends & family portion of their launch before they open to the public on the 23rd.
What's going down? On July 21st from 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM there will be free samples from vendors + a cash bar FOR PREMIUM MEMBERS ONLY. From 5:00 PM - 9:00 PM the party will continue with retail prices from vendors and an ongoing cash bar, and we'll be joined by Friends and Family of MSFH's vendors.
This is a big step for Premium and a major testament to our community. When new businesses, especially high-profile ones like MSFH, extend this type of invite, it's an act of trust. What all new businesses and entrepreneurs want (including Offline!!) is to learn how they can improve from people that they trust. Feedback is fuel.
To that end, our Premium community will be allowed to take part in the creative process of improving MSFH. We'll be creating opportunities for digital and in-person feedback on the 21st where we can share our thoughts and creative ideas.
This experience will be forPREMIUM MEMBERS ONLY (no guests).

EVEN MORE NEWS Who Had The Best June Ever?
In June, we introduced our online swag store alongside the Premium referral program ($25 credit for every 3 friends you refer). If you read my emails, you know my spiel about referrals. I believe that the best way to grow Premium is through our friends. I want to make sure that we build a great community of people who are passionate about Raleigh, who love and respect the businesses that we are partnering with and who know how to have a good time!
Since then, a few of you have been killin' it with the referrals (and the swag credit), and I just wanted to say thanks from me and the team. Here are the top Premium ambassadors:

EVEN MORE NEWS Offline Premium Google Calendar
As Premium continues to grow, I find it harder and harder to keep up with all of the cool experiences and offers that are being released, and the last thing I want to do is forget or miss out on something I've paid for.
