Playoffs begin: Durham vs. Indy

Put football season on hold for just a few days. We are still playin' baseball...augmented this week by Food Trucks and Craft Beer. (Details below.)

As I was watching this playoff video on YouTube an ad popped up for Ashford University. I thought it was part of the video because it said Achievement Belongs to Everyone. So true! Our superlative season really belongs to Durham and our fans across the Triangle.

Join us at the DBAP. Let's try to squeeze a two more weeks out of the 2013 season. Got tickets? Achievement belongs to everyone!

DBAP Food Truck Fest: Playoff Edition And Craft Beer Rodeo On Tap

DURHAM, NC – The International League South Division Champion Durham Bulls today announce the promotional lineup for first round Governors’ Cup Playoff Games at the DBAP, presented by Sport Durst Automotive Group.  The Bulls, who will face the IL West Champion Indianapolis Indians in the best-of-five series, host Game 1 on Wednesday, September 4 and Game 2 on Thursday, September 5. The return of the popular DBAP Food Truck Fest, a Craft Beer Rodeo, and rally towel giveaways highlight the first round event schedule.

On Wednesday, September 4, eight of the Triangle’s most renowned food trucks will once again make their culinary specialties available during the DBAP Food Truck Fest: Playoff Edition.
