Greetings from Carrboro,
Yes. It’s true. My family drank Cold Duck. OK, not the kids – we got Meier’s sparkling grape juice that was on the wrong side of delicious. But the holiday table was all about bubbly beverages and festive stemware. One day it would just appear in the refrigerator right next to the milk and I knew Christmas was close. At the table, I’m sure that we called our libations champagne and held our glasses just so and thought we were fancy. It was wonderful.
Something about the holidays calls (screams, maybe? hollers?) for bubbly. Regardless of pedigree. With a glass in hand, you can choose to either look back at this year that’s soon to end or look forward to the new year that stretches unknown before us. Hope and heartache and a healthy reflection on what matters most – family and friends.
To that end, Acme is hosting a Holiday Bubbly Celebration next Wednesday night, December 15th. To be honest, it’s more a Bubbly and Seafood Celebration – we couldn’t help ourselves. From where we stand, starting the holiday season off on the right foot seems like a wonderful idea. We hope that you agree.
The dinner will get started at 6:30. Menu is below. Price for the meal is $75 per person. Reservations by phone are required (919 929 2263). It will be a great night with wonderful wine and delicious food. What more could you ask for on a Wednesday? I guess you could ask for Cold Duck. We just don’t recommend it.
Well, that’s all the news from Carrboro. The staff at Acme look forward to serving you soon.
