Raleigh’s Drunk History Walking Tour

The history of Raleigh begins in a bar! As the story goes, a Wake County man named Isaac Hunter owned a tavern where he prepared a mean bourbon cherry bounce. It became such a popular watering-hole that elected officials mandated North Carolina’s new capitol must be located within ten miles of the tavern.
