Durham's Six Plates Wine Bar is hosting the next Triangle Foodie Tweetup from 4-6 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 12. We're considering it our holiday party for Triangle foodies.

(This link now works. Sorry for any confusion.)
The restaurant is normally closed on Sundays. But they are opening for us. You pay $6.63 (which includes the Eventbrite and Paypal fees) to taste a sampling of dishes, including Truffled Sirloin Cups, BBQ Confit Chicken Tostada, Smoked Salmon Red Pepper Blintz, Tuna Tartare in Cucumber Cups, Fig Jam Crostini with Spiced Walnuts, Blue Cheese and Chives, and for dessert, Chocolate and Strawberry Mousse Cups.
They will offer a cash bar. Then if you'd like to order dinner, the kitchen will be open for business. Nothing on the menu costs more than $10 so it's very reasonable. And owner Matthew Beason says they will offer a $5 lamby joes and flatbread special for everyone.
You do not have to be on Twitter to come to the event.
