It’s Friday night! I don’t need to remind you of that. You’ve already been plotting away your weekend plans. Hopefully they include the spots we’re going to be at…? Tonight we’ll be at Sycamore Brewing AND Tilt on Trade. Live music will be goin’ down at Sycamore by Gene Gene and the Blues Machine. And Tilt is hosting a fundraiser, where there will be a silent auction and a live date auction (thought that only happened in movies!)

There will be live music, a free brewery tour at 6:30pm, and they’ll be tapping their “Babalu” IPA. Sounds like something out of the Jungle Book or Lion King. Awesome.

Looking ahead to Friday, we’ll be inside the Duke building for lunch (4th floor). You’re also invited to get a complimentary Roots taco lunch at Fifth Third Bank in Concord (871 Church Street North), from 11:30am-1:30pm. Come on out, you know the trek is worth it!

Tomorrow is Friday, woop woop! Do your pre-Friday dance please. We will be serving lunch inside the Duke building on the 4th floor and then out at Sycamore Brewing for dinner.

Howdy friends! Got lots to share about this week. We hope you’ll be a part of it!

We will not be parking at Free More West today for lunch, I’m sorry! We have our grilling class tonight that we’re stoked about. Want a last minute spot? We may be able to squeeze you in. Next Tuesday the 14th we have a Cooking for Spring class. You can register for our classes HERE.

Tomorrow is Taco Wednesday, of course, so we’ll be uptown to take care of your taco withdrawals you’ve been having since last Wednesday. Thursday we’ll be at Innovation Park (university area) for lunch and then Birdsong Brewing for dinner. Were you at Birdsong on Saturday with the rest of Charlotte? That was quite the grand opening! Then Friday night we’ll be at Sycamore Brewing. What can we say, we love our breweries!

Ever been to a party at a farm? Or done a mud run? You can do either or both this Saturday right HERE. We’re excited to be there, and hope you’ll join us!
