Greetings from Carrboro,
We’re a superstitious lot, restaurant people. Crack open a fertilized egg and someone’s about to die. Find two yolks and you’re about to have twins. Spill salt? Better toss some over your shoulder to blind the devil right behind you. And despite – shall I say – mediocre results, I still eat bowl after bowl of collard greens every New Year’s Day with the hope that my bank account will rival Mark Zuckerberg’s. Well, at least the collards are delicious.
And here we are. Friday the 13th. It’s not like we can run and hide. Restaurants are always going to have very sharp knives and wildly hot pans and ovens. And I don’t think that we can get away with serving bowls of Frosted Flakes to everyone tomorrow night. So, Acme is going to come out swinging. Bad luck be damned. We’ve got the perfect April antidote to triskaidekaphobia – strawberry margaritas. You with me? Luscious local berries with not-so-local tequila is an international match made in heaven. Especially on a Friday. Especially when it’s 80 degrees and spring has finally, well, sprung. So come on; Carrboro’s calling. Luck, as they say, favors the bold.
And if you need to front load a little luck (or a lot) before tomorrow, Acme is soooo here for you. It’s Thursday. And that means Acme Halfy Hour – Shooting Point Oysters on the half-shell at half-price for half the night (5:30 – 7:30). Translation: you can get a dozen perfect oysters for 12 bucks. Damn, that’s a deal. And if you find a pea crab in one of your oysters luck is definitely on your side. Cross my heart. Like I said, we’re a superstitious lot.
Well, that’s all the news from Carrboro. The staff at Acme look forward to serving you soon.
