How bout that food truck rodeo yesterday? I road my bike to the law school and it only took me 10 minutes (lol). Probably gonna ride around a bit tonight because the hills on my road kicked my ass. Anybody got thoughts for a bar meetup between now and move-in/anyone wanna grab drinks anytime soon? There's one microbrewery that I really like but it's closer to Raleigh.


Noted on the hills! I hear that Shooters is good, but it's more of a bar than a brewery.

I veto Shooters if it's as grimy as it was during undergrad. Granted I have never been outside the hours of midnight and 2AM technically Sunday morning. Motorco gets my vote!

The microbrewery that I'm thinking of is called Gizmo. It's near Brier Creek but is definitely more into Raleigh. Motorco is also a good choice, though.

I guess the only way to determine which is the best is to go to all of them as soon as possible :lol:

Shooters is the closest thing Durham has to a club, definitely not a bar or good if you want to be able to hear what people are saying.

Motorco is a good idea, and has other pretty solid bars on the same street like Surf Club/Fullsteam. I'd also suggest Bull McCabes, Alivias, and the tobacco district bars surrounding the Durham Bulls stadium as good places to check out.

Mostly just responding to get cc'd on bar night stuff. Gone vacationing in July but down to meet up after that.

Hi, checking in a little late here.
Did you all get the parking permit? I checked Duke Flexport, and it seems like blue and green zone permits are not available(?)...

Looking at parking passes and wondering if it's worth it to buy one (maybe not for the daytime, but to get parking privileges after 5pm and on weekends in the law parking lot). What are you all planning on doing?

2 L here. Just FYI- the parking is the single worst thing about Duke. The parking purchasing system has been down for a week and 3ls are still trying to purchase passes. Unfortunately a parking pass is a necessity unless you are living at the two apartment complexes within walking distance.

Also, last year the parking people shut 50% of the law school's nighttime parking privileges down. It took me 4 months, 5 in person trips and phone calls with Deans to finally get my nighttime access back.

Upshot- be prepared for headaches with the parking situation and also the parking people. They are incompetent and they will not try to help you.

When/where do we get our DukeCards? Also can someone who has registered their vehicle in NC explain what we need? I've already got my NC license, not clear on what I need for registration.

I know you can submit a pic of yourself online and pick up your Duke id at orientation

Is it better to get a green or blue parking permit? Like which lot is closer to the law school/typically has more spots open?

For the most part, they're comparable. But if you show up after 9ish, the green lots that likely still have room will be farther from the law school than the blue lots. Most people don't find that worth the price differential and go green.

So, does anyone know when we find out our class schedule and book requirements? I'd like to get those purchased sooner rather than later!
