Raleigh Airport Hotel Cheers On the NCAA With Burgers and Brews

Let the Games Begin! NCAA-Kickoff Cookout Brings Locals and Guests Together at the Fairfield Inn & Suites Raleigh-Durham Airport/RTP

MORRISVILLE, NC -- (Marketwired) -- 02/28/14 -- The NCAA basketball season is by itself an exciting prospect for devoted fans. But sharing the experience makes it all the more memorable, which is why the Fairfield Inn & Suites Raleigh-Durham Airport RTP will host its seventh-annual, NCAA-Kickoff Beer-Tasting and Cookout on March 20, 2014.

Guests can arrive at this RDU Airport hotel between 5 and 7 p.m. to mark the beginning of a season's worth of entertainment. Burgers, chicken, hot dogs, potato salad, baked beans, popcorn, sodas and desserts will all be on offer to give celebrants the necessary energy to cheer on their favorite team.

While such lighthearted festivity is unusual among other hotels near North Carolina's Research Triangle Park, it is just the beginning of what guests will find on tap here. That's because the hotel is also featuring a beer tasting for its kickoff guests with a variety of sips available from the local Carolina Brewing Company. Boasting a selection of seasonal, special and year-round beers that range from its trademark Carolina Pale Ale to its dark and rich Carolina Winter Porter, the brewing company has a beer to suit any palette.

After fans get their fill of food and drink, they can enter the raffle to win stays at other North Carolina hotels or go exploring on a guided tour of this award-winning property. Unique among other hotels in Morrisville, NC, this property features value-added amenities like complimentary Internet access and free hot breakfasts. But the hotel's spacious rooms with their soft, airy style are worth a closer look, and the meeting room's generous capacity for up to 30 people may just encourage a new booking or two. After all the hotel is just 5 short minutes from Raleigh's PNC Arena, the host of the second-and third-round basketball games of the 2014 NCAA Tournament, which will be held March 21 and 23, 2014.

Whether guests of the cookout are staying on property or simply wish that they were, the NCAA-Kickoff Beer-Tasting and Cookout is one event not to miss. Sports fans are encouraged to secure their place at the party no later than March 14, 2014 by contacting Jemeria Lawson at [email protected] or 1-919-279-3004.

Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...
