Foodie Fun in the Triangle


The mid-summer bounty is upon us! From now through the fall the Triangle is full of foodie or food driven events for the seeking consumer or the whole family. First up is the Beer, Bourbon and BBQ festival. While not necessary an event for the kids, this festival serves up exactly what is says and in great abundance. This is a quintessential barbeque competition- straight up Food Network style. If you love barbeque and barbeque culture, head on out this weekend!

Another upcoming food event is the traditional Mole dinner at Dos Perros in Durham. When you hear traditional Mexican food, you might think one of two thoughts- 1) I have no idea what that menu entails because I have never been to Mexico or 2) Yeah, right, every bean from a can Mexican restaurant says that. Dos Perros is definitely the exception. They are serving up Mexican dishes that are representative of regions of Mexico and that honor the culture therein. This dinner is an homage to mole and the sweet, spicy, chocolate, rich pepper flavor it brings to your palate. Get your tickets now for this delicious upcoming event.
