Weekend @ Acme 2/24
Greetings from Carrboro,
The patio is open! February is the new March! Exclamation points are the new periods! (For those of you playing along at home, if I ever venture so far as an emoticon, euthanasia may be called for.) But, hey, there is shad roe – Shad Roe! – in the kitchen. From the Neuse River. And nearly perfect Virginia oysters waiting to be shucked. The shortribs just came out of the oven. And macaroni and cheese just went in. So you see my enthusiasm is, at least, partially justified. But my manic kitchen jigs still scare the line cooks. Oh, well. At least I always put my knife down.
And on top of all that excitement, we’re doing a secret-shh-don’t-tell-a-soul wine dinner that’s been sold out for weeks. Tonight. Friday. Only 20 seats. Five courses of the classic food of New Orleans with serious, off-the-charts Sonoma Zinfandels (www.wineguerilla.com). And with the winemaker, Bruce Patch, thrown in for good measure. Why would I mention a sold out wine dinner? Because four very sad people just had to cancel. That means there are four (4) seats suddenly available. Crazy. If you want them, they’re yours. First come, first served. I guess you figured that. $75 per person. Starts at 7pm. Tonight. Call us (919 929 2263) to reserve or if there are questions. The seats will go fast.
Well, that’s all the news from Carrboro. The staff at Acme look forward to serving you soon.
