Gotcha. Well that's good to know, and yeah, I don't think the traffic could even rival here, but probably best to plan for some especially on a Friday.

If anyone has any bar suggestions, those would be welcome. Probably would just be looking for a place with a great burger, and good liquor selection with decent sized drinks. That was the one disappointed thing about Nashville, the drinks there were so small and the pours usually sucked.
My suggestions straight off would be The Raleigh Times (http://www.raleightimesbar.com/), Player's Retreat (http://www.playersretreat.net/), and Backyard Bistro (http://www.backyardbistro.com/) - particularly Raleigh Times and Player's Retreat. Bistro earns cred for being across the street from the RBC Center, but the burger at RT has received nominations for being the best in NC and Player's Retreat has the largest scotch selection in the state.
