RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – Sept. 19 is a day for Triangle-area businesses and residents to show a bit of pride in their area. The day is called “919 Day” as a reference to the area code.
Triangle restaurants got especially creative in their shoutouts to the Triangle. Pompieri Pizza in Durham used basil to put “919” in the center of a tasty-looking pie.
Bull City Burger used ketchup to ketchup to paint Durham’s area code on a cheeseburger.
North Carolina State University’s accounts posted scenic photos of Raleigh.
Sports teams jumped in on the fun, too. The Carolina Hurricanes shared a 30-second video produced just for the occasion!
