I think I’ve talked about this already this week but The BCPF and I are going to be attending the Texas Pete Spirits of Summer festival. This would be weekend of the Salute! NC Wine Festival but that is no more. They have basically taken Salute! and the Texas Pete Culinary Arts Festival and thrown them together. 30688635_162162754448338_8223325916009332736_n

So, this festival is not just wine or food but wine and food in addition to beer. Yes, they’re still having a demo tent but it’s not the NC Food & Wine University any longer. It’s now the Lowe’s Foods Demo Tent and I will be hosting/emceeing the demo tent from 3:30p-5:30p. In addition to the festival, Foothills will have an afterparty from 6p-9p. During the festival proper, there will also be music involved.

Those restaurants will be preparing food for purchase. The demo tent just requires your wristband. I know it’s kind of late now but advance tix are only $25 (which you may still be able to purchase on the website) and “day of” is $30. If you are there, stop by the demo tent and say hey to me!
