Wonderful thing for the community!
Where can we find more information on next years event?
"Ignore the old Big Wok II sign"? That's kinda harsh. I'm not a fan, but they didn't go anywhere.
To the previous person: you're missing out. Worth it...

Had a great time at Sunday brunch at Tupelo Honey. Started off by being shunted to a table next to the passageway to the restrooms and bar area, so we got to enjoy the constant parade of waiters going back and forth during our meal. Things got even better when we realized we weren't exactly thrilled with the menu, but then came the biscuit (one each) - which were greasy and so full of shortening, I literally had a thin film of shortening stuck to the roof of my mouth for 10 minutes afterward. But most of all I enjoyed the utterly disinterested, marginally attentive waiters, having to wait till doomsday for drink refills, plus again, the cavalcade of waitstaff whizzing by our conveniently placed table. The one saving grace was that the food was very good. Everything else - not so much. I could have used another biscuit, but it was hard enough getting someone's attention for drink refills so I didn't bother about the biscuit. No one on staff seemed to like being there. This place needs a BIG improvement in its service, and has a loooong way to go before achieving actual "attentive service" status. Maybe they'll do that, but I won't know because I won't be going back.
Surprised that in all of the summaries there was not one mention of the quality of the coffee. Brunch in Paris is nothing without good coffee and that's what we're expecting here. Will try some out and post our favorite! Thanks for the list.
We slipped to No.2 ... Get on there and vote!
Great reporting on a new wave of breweries hitting all of NC - glad to see a female in the business featured!
Thats NOT real porchetta! please don't tell readers this is what porchetta is supposed to be? Where is the crispy skin? The porchetta sandwich I had a little spoon a few weeks ago was a limp, fatty, white pork sandwich. It was greasy, under-cooked, and tasted nothing like any of the great porchetta sandwiches I have had all around the country and world. I would love for it to be better, it just isn't the real thing: a sliced hunk of tender and juicy pork rolled in herbs and topped with crispy skin. The bun was the best part-
I've had a chef crush on Joe for years...one of his students married my son...Ai's loss was HG's gain... The entire Grand Strand is so fortunate to have chef Bonaparte. Best wishes for a very bright and tasty future.
Great points Jonathan. As a craft beer drinker and aficionado, seeing anything owned by AB much less MADE by them called craft really irks me. It's not semantics, it's not a simple mistake, it's ignorance by people that think "beer is beer" and that's all that matters.
All that said, I enjoy a Shock Top now and then, and even though Goose Island doesn't taste as good as it did five years ago, it's still nice to have that option in North Carolina.
But most importantly, North Carolina (and South Carolina for that matter) has WAY too many award-winning, revolutionary craft breweries that should be celebrated instead of AB macrobrews produced 300+ miles away infringing on the "craft" and "local" monikers.
Pretty harsh words for this. I'm willing to bet this was just a simple mistake by an employee that didn't know.
My great-grandfather used to drink a bit of this before going out to work on the farm in the winter, and a shot before bed each night. My grandfather did the same, and I never knew him to have a cold. I keep a bottle around and at the first sign of any cold or cough, drink about half a cup over ice, go to bed, and get up the next day feeling great! It works!
I do understand, my mom gave r&r to me as well, I live in nyc and no liquor store gave it where xan I find it

The Southern Heritage Apple Orchard was created in 1997 and is part of Horne Creek Living Historical Farm, one of twenty-seven historic sites operated by the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources. Lee and Edith Calhoun donated all of the apple trees which are in the orchard.
A number of years ago, the orchard became mature enough to start selling apples. We do not give apples away. Apple sales from the orchard go back into covering the costs associated with its operation.
Growing four hundred different varieties of southern apples, some of which are very disease prone, is a highly complex and challenging project; for that reason, you do not often see these apples grown today in commercial orchards. Fungal diseases are hard to control when this many varieties are involved. As a consequence, a small percentage of the fruit can't be sold for eating or cooking purposes. We sell those apples as deer apples. Other varieties that we have in the orchard will not keep for more than a few days and the selling window is very short. The remainder of the crop is sold to the public at the site's visitor center, at off-site festivals, at our Annual Cornshucking Frolic on the third Saturday of October, and for research purposes.
In addition, when the fruit load is too heavy on the trees, we often have to thin it out. Because it is not ripe, that fruit can't be used.
I hope this information clarifies our operation at the Southern Heritage Apple Orchard.

Just curious, did you also run into that burning building and save the children? This REALLY isn't as dastardly a deed as you make it out to be. As mentioned in previous posts, even though the beer may not be on tap CURRENTLY, your brand was still being displayed fairly prominently, and isn't that some REALLY cheap advertising?
The editorial agenda of this publication is so confusing. What is the local relevance/significance of this piece?
