Cary, NC – This Monday, September 5, 2016 is Labor Day and for most of us, that means one extra day of sleeping in and fun. So for our collective day off, here are some things to do around Cary. Check out our calendar for more.

With one extra day to relax and recharge, you can stay out later over the weekend. There are a number of late-night events starting Friday you can take advantage of.

Wine Away Friday is this Friday at 7 PM at Chatham Hill Winery. There is live music and seating inside the winery or outside in the balmy September weather. And since it’s a winery, there is wine to sample or take by the glass.

There are two movies at night at The Cary Theater. You can go see Genius at 6 PM, about the professional relationship between writer Thomas Wolfe and his editor Maxwell Perkins or you can see The Tenth Man at 9:30 PM, about a man who feels alienated from his Jewish culture but has to learn to embrace it. Or you can see both.

There is lots of late night music in Cary Friday night, from bluegrass at Mac’s Tavern at 8 PM to karaoke at Corner Tavern and Grill at 9 PM.
