From 7-9 p.m. on April 27, people can visit with the nation’s first president in honor of the North Carolina Capitol’s newest exhibit, “George Washington is Here! Images of the Founding Father in the North Carolina State Capitol.”
Beer, wine and hor d'oeuvres will be served in the Capitol rotunda, according to a news release from the N.C. Department of Natural and Cultural Resources. Beer will be provided by Raleigh Brewing Company. Chamber Music Raleigh will provide music “for a true Throwback Thursday.”
