Raleigh is booming. No, Raleigh's too corporate. Too dull. But not dull much longer, because with the help of seven (for luck) bartenders around town, we've come up with a signature drink for our City of Oaks—the "Pretty Talk." Like a few politicians we know.
Anyway, on the eve of Raleigh Wide Open III and the opening of the new Raleigh Convention Center—and hopefully not on the eve of a visit by Hurricane Hanna—the Indy staff considers whether the Capital City is ready to welcome company. Ready for all the conventioneers. Ready to be the cutting-edge "City of the 21st Century" that our pitchmen and women are out there selling. (And a lot of us are ready to buy.)
We think the "Pretty Talk" will help, at least till we put up a Space Needle or something.
