The Live Guide to What's Open in Durham During Florence

[LAST UPDATED: Friday, September 14, 11:45am]

Florence really dampened the fun this weekend, huh? With almost every event being cancelled or postponed, you may find yourself wondering what to get up to if it ends up being safe enough to go out.

Throughout the weekend, we'll be keeping tabs on who's announced they're open at least some days this weekend despite the storm and who's throwing epic hurricane parties (fingers crossed!). Many businesses haven't made the call yet, so this list will likely fill out more as the weekend gets closer.

DISCLAIMER #1: Please stay safe and only venture out to these if it won't put you in danger. If it's too crazy out there, we 100% give you permission to Netflix and chill (or read a book and chill if the power's out).

DISCLAIMER #2: We are doing our best to keep this accurate and updated, but please double check with the vendors before you go out. See something we've missed? Let us know!
