Looking for upsets? Did you know that most upsets occur with #12 & #13 seeds beating #5 & #4 seeds respectively. Not so, with Startup Madness, a college competition for young entrepreneurs. During the fierce competition of March Madness, ACC schools send their best student entrepreneurial teams to Startup Madness. This year the ACC 14 universities will send 2 teams. Each team will have a working product. It doesn't have to be market ready, but must be a working prototype that can be demoed. Teams compete in a bracket style competition to determine who goes home with the prizes and bragging rights.

General admission gets you access to Elite Eight Finals, announcement of winners, and networking at The State Club in Raleigh on March 27th, from 5:00-7:00pm. For tickets click here.

Well Werth the Wait! - P.G. Werth's Restaurant Now Open

Gregg Hamm, owner and chef of P.G. Werth's Restaurant and Market opened late January on the first floor of the 927 West Morgan apartment building in downtown Raleigh. (Near Irregardless Cafe) It's a restaurant, coffee bar and gourmet market rolled into one.

Hamm describes the menu as "Blue Ridge-inspired favorites using locally grown foods," which translates to a mix of traditional and contemporary American fare ranging from fresh carved turkey to fried green tomato sandwiches to chicken and waffles, with locally sourced sides including house-cut sweet potato fries and roasted beets.

The Market at P.G. Werth's features a full coffee bar open daily, as well as a showcase of grab and go prepared foods. These meals-to-go are made using local, seasonal ingredients and are prepared with nutrition in mind and a variety of vegan, gluten free, dairy free meals. They also offer an assortment of baked goods (including gluten-free). The Market opens at 6:30am each weekday morning and at 9:30am on weekends. Follow them on Facebook to see what meals are freshly cooked and ready for pick-up and take home.
The restaurant is very trendy with a beautiful balance between contemporary and warm and comfortable, with big windows bringing in light and the street scenes.

The menu has many interesting and unusual items but at the same time recognizable. The 'Munch' Menu (appetizers) includes 15 delicious selections to sample with excellent portions for sharing. A must try is the fried green beans, very lightly breaded with a perfect balance of seasoning.

The Brunch menu includes another 13 unique items and the option to have bottomless mimosas or Heirloom Bloody Mary's. From fusion egg dishes to pork to savory sandwiches and even a family style feast option, there is something for every taste. The Grayson Highlands Burger with cherrywood bacon is one of the best burgers you'll ever taste!

Chef Hamm has obviously taken great care in planning the overall design of the restaurant as well as all four of his menus. (Dinner, lunch, munch & brunch) His passion for culinary creations is quite obvious.

This delicious farm to table experience...desserts included is Werth your trying.

The Beltline Buzz items are selected by our editors.  No one can pay to be featured on
The Beltline Buzz..  That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such.  Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of 
The Beltline Buzz.  Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way.  So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about. 


That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors.  You'll recognize them from the subject line: "The Beltline Buzz Dedicated E-mail."  Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone.  Not for any amount of money. 


We hope that you continue to enjoy your Beltline Buzz.  We look forward to delivering it.
