Twin City Talks Spring Forum

Mar 27, 2018 from 6:00 PM to 8:15 PM
Footnote Coffee and Cocktails, Winston-Salem, NC
Event Summary

Join the Winston-Salem Journal for the second in a series of Twin City Talks Community Forums.  This free event is open to the public, but an RSVP is required. 

For the second forum, the topic will be Spirited Talk: Can We Drink Our Way to Prosperity?  

With the influx of wineries, breweries and distilleries in and around our community, what kind of economic impact does this have in #wsnc? How many does Winston-Salem need? How does the alcohol industry contribute to the City of Arts & Innovation?

Public input: We welcome questions from the public around this topic.  Citizens may email their question in advance to or via Twitter via @twincitytalks.  Written questions will also be collected at the forum and the moderator will address as many questions as possible within the time allowed.

About Twin City Talks

Discussion. The definition of the word is consideration of a question in open and informal debate.

Simply talking about an idea is a powerful exercise. We do it all the time at work and at home. We talk to people close to us and we share ideas with random strangers.

Discussion is how we find our way through the world. We talk to each other, share ideas and oftentimes take action.

The staff at the Winston-Salem Journal is continually looking for new ways to get people talking to each other, in meaningful ways, which led to the idea to do something rather simple: Let’s get people together to talk about things that matter to them.

When we talk to each other, we’re generally not talking about lofty ideals. We’re talking about where we want to eat, or how that new store is replacing the one where our moms took us shopping. Or what is that new construction project that disrupted our daily commute. Who thought it was a good idea to build all those stores along Hanes Mall Boulevard anyway?

That’s what our new series Twin City Talks is about. We’ll be writing about issues that matter and producing monthly podcasts of discussions about the things that matter in Winston-Salem and Forsyth County. We’re also going to try something really crazy: Let’s get some people together, in person, in a casual environment and talk about ideas.

That word informal in the definition of discussion is key. When we’re talking about a discussion, we’re thinking about getting a crowd together, sharing a few drinks and chatting.
