I seem to have become an assistant organizer of the Raleigh-Triangle New in Town Meetup Group. Which is funny, since I've been here 2 weeks and don't know where to host any events, but I'd said I wanted to get more Durham events going.

Does anyone know what would be a good low key happy hour spot? I'm more of an Irish pub kinda gal than meat market martini bar gal (well those are fun too when the mood strikes).

I'll post the event here too after I come back from FL this weekend and decide where/when.

Do any of you have any ideas for a good pub or sports bar, not a chain preferably, maybe some Belgian beer??

It can be in Chapel Hill as well - I'd noticed that most of the meetup events are in Cary or Raleigh so we're trying to get more on this side of the area. Thanks!

There's a ton of places downtown. BCR probably can give a little more insight than me at this point b/c I'm slightly out of touch, but I've always liked Satisfaction in Brightleaf. For Irish pubs, try the James Joyce.

My sister had her rehearsal dinner there years ago and it was so much fun and the food was great! I am sure it would be a fun after work gathering place!

This is kind of a random suggestion, but I love the Guglhuph. It's more of a bakery/cafe, but they have an awesome beer garden outside - one of the best I've seen in the area. They have a couple German wheat beers on tap, wine, bottled beer, and great coffee. It's not downtown, it's off of 15/501 business (next to Foster's if you know where that is). It's definitely a laid back, european-type cafe, and I think it would be a great place to meet up for drinks on a nice day.
The website is www.guglhupf.com.

My favorite places for a beer are the James Joyce, Federal by brightleaf, and Tylers in the american tobacco project (as long as there isn't a ball game that day). Federal and Joyce have great food, tylers, not so good.

New place on the corner of Main and Gregson right down from the Fed and Joyce looks like its got alot of potential. Can't remember the name, they did a great job on their patio, good food for lunch, pretty pricey at dinner.

Satisfaction pizza in brightleaf is great for beer and a pizza.

Georges is a good place to go for afterwork beer and sushi, not a huge fan of the restauraunt though (for the price I'd rather eat at the bar at Magnolia Grill).
