From 5 to 7 pm, Gerry Cohen, a member of the Wake County Board of Elections, will be at NoRa to answer any of your vote related questions. You can join either in person or via Zoom (meeting information below)
At the same time, NoRa will be hosting our own vote -- Vineyard Style. We will have a few of our favorite wines out and you will be able to taste each and then cast your vote for the best. The winner will be added to the NoRa Wine List.

ROTATING ART GALLERY @ NoRa
The People's Art Exhibit
Currently on display at NoRa through October 11
Virtual "Meet the Artists" night - Saturday Oct 10
Over the past year, we've had an amazing group of artists exhibit to make our inaugural year of NoRa's Rotating Art Gallery an amazing success. From photography. mixed media and fine arts to the current exhibit featuring novel uses of paper - we have been amazed by the creativity of our local artist community. To that end, NoRa wants to open up our walls to our entire community for the next art exhibit. The theme we've selected is "2020". The art will represent your experience with the first half of this wild and crazy year!
NOTE: We are installing the art on the wall this week. We will announce once it's up and will also be announcing a "Virtual Meet the Artist" event so we can highlight all of the amazing people who contributed.
Back by overwhelming demand, we have weekend drive-up movies in the NoRa parking lot. These will mostly be on Friday and Saturday nights for the foreseeable future - weather and schedule permitting.

Wine, beer, cider and ...
Shortly before the shutdown, NoRa had introduced wine and beer to our expanding menu. Based on feedback from our wine tastings plus some recommendations from customers, we have expanded our selection. Many Red, White, Rose and Sparkling options available by the glass or the bottle!
Wine not your thing, how about…
We are proud to support our favorite local brewery – Durham’s Ponysaurus! In addition to SEVEN (7) Ponysaurus brews, we are currently highlighting the world's greatest beer - Guinness - along with a North Carolina favorite, Highland Gaelic Ale.
We love our locals! Come try our current cider option from Bull City Cider.
For those looking for something a little lighter, we offer a variety of White Claw flavors. If you're feeling adventurous, you can be part of testing group for "Hard Italian Sodas" as we try out an adult version of our popular drink.
