WRAL Out & About shared a post.
This unique, augmented reality-enhanced driving has been described as “like bowling, but for golf,” probably due to its lane-like bays and fun spirited competition. The range offers three stories of private driving bays where you and up to six friends can play games that enhance your golf skills (but golf skills are definitely not required to have a helluva good time!).
Imagine options ranging from video game-like, princess-saving missions (yes, using your golf skills) to more traditional courses you can work through—all from the comfort of your own bay. Plus, there's food from the Drive Shack grill, booze, and even a rooftop bar to boot. Driving bays will be available to rent for $10-$50 per hour depending on the day and time. 🙌

And wow are folks in for a treat with Jolie Restaurant, a stunning tribute to Crawford’s daughter and a concept that derives from his early classical training and techniques. It’s a highly-anticipated DTR restaurant featuring primo rooftop seating and views of the Raleigh skyline. Expect classic French dishes with delicious modern twists, a beverage program that offers perfect vino pairings, French aperitif-style cocktails, and local brews (like the first-ever signature Brewery Bhavana beer named *Jolie*, a locally-made ode to the bistro).
Jolie will be open Tuesday through Saturday, 5p-10p, but pro tip: make your reservations on OpenTable ASAP because this place is about to be a DTR hotspot.
