Here at Unscripted, we believe in destinations that provide more than just scenery. We believe in places that pulse. That’s why we planted ourselves in Durham, North Carolina. This year, the city will celebrate its 150th birthday. In honor of the sesquicentennial, we decided to spotlight the folks who help breathe life into this great southern city. Throughout 2019, we’ll be posting interviews with real-life movers and shakers, members of the Durham community on our website. Because Durham isn’t just about what you see. It’s also about the people you meet. Watch a preview of our interviews in the video below:

In the spirit of celebration, we’re also proud to launch a new room package, aptly named “We Are Durham.” Available now, the package includes a Shop Durham NC card that grants guests access to deals, discounts and other freebies around town, and a complimentary ‘Durham 150’ crewneck, thanks to our partnership with Discover Durham. Festive, right?

Of course, birthdays and booze also tend to pair well. That’s why we decided to come out with our very own signature cocktail featuring ingredients found right here in Bull City. Available in The Studio, the limited edition “We Are Durham” libation features local distillery Bedlam Vodka, Ponysaurus Bière de Garde, and a splash of fresh squeezed lemonade topped off with a dash of Crude ‘Sycophant’ bitters.

Some cities like the keep their gems under wraps. But that’s not really the Durham style. At least not according to those who call this place home. We asked some enterprising members of Durham’s community how they would describe Bull City. “Bold,” they said with pride. “Funky,” they asserted. “Progressive,” they added. And that’s not all this community has to say. We are also strong and creative. We are energetic. We are inclusive. We are revolutionary. We are Durham.

Keep up with us online and over social media as we release new videos each month highlighting the many faces of Durham. Or better yet, come on down and get to know us yourself.
