#hashtaghungry: Triple C's Harvest Fest and Oyster Roast, Pop-up Ramen, more

Posted By on Tue, Oct 28, 2014 at 10:59 AM

Each week, The Social Eater picks a handful of filter-friendly, tweetable, social media-shareable foodie events in and around the city. No #struggleplates allowed.

• At some point in your twenties, you move past "what can I drink to get completely wasted" to "what tastes good." For me, it happened when I realized shots were no longer my friend. On Wednesday evening, there's a great class hosted by the Charlotte Beer Babes that will help you transition to that sophisticated drinker you always wanted to be. Learn from a BJCP-certified Cicerone how to taste beer, and also take part in an off-flavor tasting. Admission includes light apps and all tasting beers. As this is a late notice, make sure to hit up the Babes on the Facebook event page to make sure there's room.
$25. Oct. 29, 6 p.m.-10 p.m.
Dilworth Neighborhood Grille, 911 E. Morehead St.
More info here.

• I learned something really interesting about oysters while editing the food feature coming out in this week's paper that I'm ashamed to admit I'd never considered: Eating raw oysters equals eating live oysters. Lightbulb! Feast on your fair share at Triple C Brewing's Harvest Fest and Oyster Roast on Saturday. With bluegrass from The Josh Daniel/Mark Schimick Project playing in the background, taste the winners from a recent home brew competition. Also, feel good knowing $5 from the admission ticket will go to Friendship Gardens.
$25. Nov 1, 5 p.m.-8 p.m.
Triple C Brewing, 2900 Griffith St.
Eventbrite ticket sales end today!

• This morning on Creative Loafing's Twitter account, I discovered a message that completely made my morning. Two words for you: Ramen noodles. Apparently, they're finally coming to Charlotte by way of someone named Rodney. On Saturday, let's all agree to meet up at this Pop-Up Ramen event at 7th Street Public Market and see what this is all about. Here's to the power of social media. Oh, and to Rodney.
$10. Nov. 1, 6 p.m.-8 p.m.
RSVP at RodneyNoodlesQC@gmail.com.
Local Loaf at 7th Street Public Market, 224 E. 7th St.

• No one makes better chili than my mom, but she's in Georgia, so I'll be interested in finding out who wins the 5th Annual Dilworth/South End Chili Cook-Off.
$10. Nov. 2, 11 a.m.
Atherton Mill & Market, 2104 South Blvd.
