Grab a Larger Than Life Slice at Benny Capitale's
$
Benny Capitale's
121 Fayetteville St

Wash away the Monday blues at Benny Capitale's, the brand new pizza spot on Fayetteville. Benny's does things a little different—their pizzas are 28" meaning a slice is going to be bigger than your face. Way bigger. It's not fancy eating, but it's certainly tasty.

TUESDAY
Cool Down at Vita Vite
$
Vita Vite Raleigh
313 W Hargett St

When the heat index is hitting 100 an ice cold drink and some solid AC is all you can ask for. Vita Vite provides both with style. Choose the drink of the moment, frosé, a frozen rosé drink that'll wash away your sweaty day and might even make the covered patio tolerable (that swing is pretty irresistible). If you can't take the heat, take refuge inside with frosé or beer and a charcuterie plate to share.
