Went to Illogicon this weekend. Met nice people I didn't already know. Shopped and found one relatively rare and out of print book maegwynn was surprised we didn't already have. Saw some nice costumes. Hotel bar opens at 5pm and closes at 11pm on weekends. Also lacked bitters. Bunch of savages in this town. Service, on the other hand, was excellent. Heard rdansky read a haunted house story at midnight.
Within walking distance of the hotel was Players Retreat which is a bar that serves food, and David's Dumpling and Noodle Bar which is a restaurant but has a bar. The former has tasty burgers, the best selection of single malts in the RTP area, and a dedicated button on the register for Old Fashioneds, and the latter is inexpensive, very tasty, and quick. Both previously familiar to me, and both recommended.
