The Great Debate

  • King's 14 West Martin Street Raleigh, NC, 27601 United States

Election Day is growing closer, and conversations on your Facebook feed and around your dinner table are likely getting heated. This season may have you feeling bitter and cynical, but the end is in sight, and thankfully we live in a country where democracy, civil discourse and disagreement can coexist.
In that spirit, we are pleased to announce:

Join us, and Ashley Melzer of Mettlesome, for a (not-so-serious) debate show of epic proportions!

Is a hot dog a sandwich?
Is there extraterrestrial life in the universe?
In a death match, which barbecue would win?

These and other pressing questions answered with the help of experts, special guests and a little audience interaction.

Tuesday November 1st
7 - 9pm | Doors at 6:30pm
Kings in downtown Raleigh
