AUGUST'S HANDPICKED OFFER $25 to Spend at so•ca
"so•ca derives it’s name from ... a well known geographical divider, the Tropic of Cancer. Located just north of the Equator, this line of latitude divides many countries around the world. so•ca centers its focus on the islands and Americas south of this geographical border (south of the tropic of cancer)."
Prepare your taste buds for a culinary journey around South America right here in Cameron Village. so•ca features fresh takes on Latin American dishes, and we're not talking your average taco here—check out our full review and top picks here (the food is seriously stunning).

AUGUST'S SNEAK PEEK EVENT Vita Vite North Hills Date TBA
Vita Vite is one of our favorite places in downtown Raleigh, and we couldn't be more excited to see them expanding! Lindsay has been gracious enough to invite the Premium community to get a sneak peek of Vita Vite's new location and enjoy a complimentary glass of wine before they open to the public! Small plates should be available for purchase, and if they're anything like the downtown location, they can be viewed here. The date for this event is not set just yet, but we expect that it will be the week of the 13th or the 20th. Additional details to come soon.
JULY'S RESCHEDULED SNEAK PEEK Morgan Street Food Hall Date TBA
I wish I had better news, but there is still no confirmed date for our Premium party at MSFH. That said, it will be sometime in August.
If you missed the original announcement, 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.
When this event does happen, there will be free samples from vendors + a cash bar FOR PREMIUM MEMBERS ONLY (no guests).

Sometimes these things happen, but we're committed to making it the best experience possible for you!
