There are two amazing events happening on Oct. 14 and I pit anyone who has to choose between the two.
The Hook + Vine event will feature five tastes of North Carolina seafood made by these restaurants and caterers: Battistella's, PoshNosh Catering, Sarah Cecilia Good Food Co. and Mandolin. The chefs will be serving up tastes of shrimp and flounder, as well as more sustainable ocean species, like sheepshead and grunts. Each seafood dish will be paired with a wine from The Wine Feed's offerings.
The event will be held at The Wine Feed's location at 18 Glenwood Ave. Tickets cost $30 or $25 when two or more tickets are ordered. To purchase tickets or for more information, go to thewinefeed.com/hook-vine/.
The second event is the 5th Annual Pittsboro Pepper Festival from 3-7 p.m. Oct. 14 at Briar Chapel Community Park
If you are a pepper fan, this is a not-to-be-missed event. Eight local farms will be providing mild and hot peppers for more than 30 chefs, caterers and other food artisans who will be serving samples. The list of restaurants includes Raleigh's 18 Seaboard, Herons at the Umstead Hotel and Spa in Cary and La Residence in Chapel Hill. There also will be live music and children's activities.
The event is from 3-7 p.m. Tickets cost $30 until Saturday and $35 on the day of the event. To purchase tickets and for more information, go HERE.
The event benefits the Abundance Foundation, a nonprofit that aims to educate the public about sustainable agriculture, renewable energy and the local economy.
