Greetings from Carrboro,
Swallows come back to Capistrano. Penguins come back to Antartica. And, well, Tom Brady just continues to come back. Again and again. So I thought, why not add a little something to the list? You know, without requiring that I travel ridiculous distances or freeze or, god forbid, risk getting walloped by 300 lb 20-somethings. And, well, also indoors and much more in the preferable non-suffering vein. To that end I humbly submit – the wine dinner comes back to Acme. Can I get an amen?
It’s certainly been a minute. But I have a strong feeling the dinner will be just like riding a bike; it will be tons of fun and, well, we’ll be sore the next day. A nominal price to pay for doing something that we love. The staff’s pre-shift jumping jack regimen should definitely help.
The dinner will feature wines from Burgundy and its American offspring, the Willamette Valley of Oregon with one final stop in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Each wine matched with flavors and foods from Acme’s Southern winter palate. There will be four courses and five wines – all of them delicious. The menu is below. The dinner is next Wednesday, January 18th. We’ll get started promptly at 6:30pm that evening with doors opening at 6pm. The limited tickets for the dinner are $75 and can be purchased here. Honestly, if you can find something better to do in the middle of January, please let us know.
Well, that’s all the news from Carrboro. The staff at Acme look forward to serving you soon.
The Staff at Acme
With Natali Schlottig of Dreyfus, Ashby & Co.
