Durham Youth Baseball is having a Community Pint Night on Friday, April 5th from 5:30 to 9:30pm in Freeport!  They‘ll be raffling off a corn hole board and bags (to be drawn on the day of the actual Corn Hole Tournament), and other items to be drawn that night.  DYB will also be registering people for the June 1st Corn Hole Tournament they’re having at Gritty’s in Freeport too. Of course, we’re contributing 50¢ from every pint we sell during the CPN. DYB is currently in the process of planning and developing a baseball field complex on Swamp Road in Durham.  All fundraising efforts this season will be in support of this project.

Gritty’s will be served at the annual Streets, Eats and Beats Food Truck Festival on 6/1/2019.
