Greetings from Carrboro,
I don’t have a tattoo. Though not completely on purpose. There was a hot minute when I debated getting a Duke’s Mayonnaise tramp stamp. Then I remembered the process was unquestionably painful and my feverish yearning quickly, um, cooled. And anyway, I have kids – even tatted up kids – that mark me colorfully enough to not require any subsequent self-created scars.
And then there’s the years of cooking providing ample burn marks that, at times, give my arms a Rothko-esque blurred artfulness. OK, that might be a stretch. But you see my point; this business leaves its indelible mark. And easily the marks that I like the most are those we make on the calendar. And, well, ‘tis the season. I like to think of it as No-worry November.
On Wednesday, November 8th, we will team up with famed California vintners, Mount Eden Vineyards, for a four course dinner showcasing their legendary wines with the flavors of a southern fall. One of the original small estates in California to make truly world-class wines, Mount Eden has never strayed from that singular mission and the wines today reflect that hard won legacy. We will get started at 6:30pm with doors opening at 6pm. Tickets for the wine dinner are $80 per person. Menu is below. Seats are limited to 52 and are sold on a first come, first served basis. It will be a great night.
Thanksgiving cometh. And again this year, Acme is offering our take on a southern Thanksgiving To-Go Feast for you to enjoy at home or wherever the holiday takes you. The feast is $85 and serves two hungry souls. We also have the necessary extras to make the day complete – pies, cornbread, biscuits, etc. Pick up will be the day before, November 22nd, beginning at 4pm. And this year we are also offering an “Everything but the Bird” package that is exactly that – all the sides without the turkey for those who want to cook the bird themselves. Or those who’d prefer not to have turkey altogether.
Lastly, we look forward to welcoming all of you who are coming to Salt & Smoke on Saturday. It’s going to be a glorious day of food and music and friends. And the weather couldn’t be better. I can’t imagine a better day to get your South on.
Well, that’s all the news from Carrboro. The staff at Acme look forward to serving you soon.
The Staff at Acme
