#hashtaghungry: Turkish Festival, Bachtoberfest, more

Posted By on Tue, Oct 21, 2014 at 3:16 PM

My apologies for the brief hiatus! Best of Charlotte, vacation and general chaos at Creative Loafing has been distracting. But I'm back this week with The Social Eater, which offers a handful of filter-friendly, tweetable, social media-shareable foodie events in and around the city. No #struggleplates allowed.

• You'll come to NoDa F.A.M. Rally because, uh, it's a food truck rally in NoDa. But you'll stay for music by Pullman Strike and That Guy Smitty.
Oct. 23, 6 p.m.-9 p.m.
The Chop Shop, 399 E. 35th St.

• Not only does the Charlotte Symphony's Bachtoberfest work for the alliteration — Bach and beer, a pair that rolls off the tongue so smoothly — but the experience in itself just makes sense. Why not sip on a classic beverage while listening to some classical? The evening show offers a pregaming discussion on the creative process with folks representing NoDa Brewing Company and McColl Center for Art + Innovation, with cellist Jonathan Lewis; after the show, enjoy some more sips and food samplings with live music by FestzeltMusik Oktoberfest Band.
$12-$29.
Oct. 24, 1 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
Knight Theater, 430 S. Tryon St.

• If The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe ever put a taste for Turkish delights in your mouth — was it really that good, Edmund? — then make sure to hit up the Turkish Festival this weekend. Hosted by the American Turkish Association of North Carolina at Charlotte, this Saturday afternoon fest offers authentic food and coffee, a cooking class, dance demonstrations and more.
$2 in advance online.
Oct. 25, 11 a.m.-5 p.m.
Oasis Shriners, 604 Doug Mayes Place
