What's Happening on Industry Hill? 

It's a new year, and Winston-Salem has been ranked as one of Forbes' top cities to visit in 2019. We're committed to helping you see and enjoy more of what's happening in Winston.


You might have heard by now, but we're getting ready to move our office downtown. After a lot of searching and planning, we've found the perfect spot in the heart of Industry Hill, and we couldn't be more excited. 


Watch us on Facebook Live every Friday as we reveal our new office space and some other fun updates.

Fun Resolutions to Try This Year

Whether you look forward to making new resolutions each year or even if you enjoy makin' 'em just to break 'em, we thought these resolutions would be a fun way to get out and experience more of what Winston-Salem has to offer.


Learn to make beer

Foothills is partnering with the Forsyth Humane Society to bring you BEER SCHOOL. 

When: Saturday, January 19th

Where: Footnote Cafe

This event is limited to 30 participants. Get your ticket here.

Eat great local food, up to 50% off

The Big Eat is an annual event held on Tuesdays in January and February. Participating local restaurants offer signature dishes up to half off for dine-in customers. It's a great way to try a new restaurant (or an excuse to visit one of your favorites), and it helps support local businesses through the slower winter months!

Fun at the Pub

When it's cold outside, it's nice to warm up with your favorite drink and some good company. Luckily, Winston has plenty of opportunities. Here are a few pub and brewery events we're looking forward to this month!


Warm up at Foothills


Their downtown location will be hosting two warm drink specials in January:

Jan. 17—Hot Buttered Rum

Jan. 25—Irish Coffee Day

It's hard to believe it's already been two years! With an eclectic tap selection and fun collaborations, WiseMan has quickly become one of our favorite local breweries (and we can't wait to be their neighbors soon).

With fun events throughout the day, Pure Fiyah Reggae and Souljam, and your favorite food trucks, this birthday will be a blast.
