A Round of Drinks with Your Friendly Neighborhood Bartenders

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text] Fair warning: If you ask a group of bartenders to meet you at noon on a Wednesday, bring lots of coffee. It’s kind of the equivalent of asking us 9-to-5 folks to come into the office at 6 a.m. Once caffeinated and properly introduced – a few had never met, while several went …

Taking the Bull by the Foam

No, our cover wasn’t photoshopped. For our specific latte request, we sought out the talents of barista Josh Kimbrough, 31, a Chapel Hill native who remembers his introduction to “really good, specialty coffee” as a teen. It was coincidentally at Open Eye Cafe in Carrboro, where he now teaches training classes for Carrboro Coffee Roasters, …

Txak Full of Fun

Six Plates Wine Bar likens Txakolifest to the Superbowl – they pull out all the stops (er, corks). Revelers came out to sample endless pours of Txakoli (pronounced “chah-coli”), a tart, fizzy white wine from the Basque region of Spain that’s best served by holding the bottle a considerable height above a drinker’s glass and pouring it from …
