Acme Mother’s Day and Winemaker Dinner 5/6
Greetings from Carrboro,
We’ve gotten some serious push back from the Receptionist Union. Serious. Then a phalanx of Wal-Mart greeters threatened to picket. Cheerfully. And even that formidable blue menace didn’t shake our resolve. No way. The staff at Acme is valiantly standing our ground. If this is the hill we die on, so be it. Because pushing aside National Receptionist Day just had to be done. Damn the consequences. Well-behaved restaurants rarely make history.
So, here it is. Acme’s Third Annual Dynamic-Creative-Intelligent-Beautiful-Women-Who-Also-Happen-To-Be-Mothers’ Day. Next Wednesday. May 9th. And true to form, all moms’ entrees are on us. Yes, that’s right. Free. No moolah. Nada. Gratis. I think you can see why we stiffened our backbone. This is gonna be big.
To kick off our “We Love Mom” week at the restaurant, Acme is thrilled to host a wine dinner with Dutch/French winemaker Lidewij van Wilgen of Mas des Dames fame (www.masdesdames.fr). This Sunday, May 6th. 6:30 in the evening. This mother of three (notice the mom theme) makes some of the most sought after wines from the South of France from her 18th century farmhouse. These are handmade, small production wines that are perfect with Acme’s southern palate. $55 per person. Reservations are required (919 929 2263). Space is very limited. Menu is below.
Well, that’s all the news from Carrboro. The staff at Acme look forward to serving you soon.
