Question-a-bull Trivia at Durty Bull @ Durty Bull Brewing Company
Jul 18 @ 7:00 pm

Welcome to the first day of class. Here at Durty Bulliversity we know that many of you would prefer to choose your own classes. However, you’ve all been drinking, so we’ve set up the curriculum for you. We’ll be running over material from current events, this week in history, and music, plus a final mystery round to make sure you’re still awake.

Your instructor, Ms Sherri, is stone-cold sober and ready to see how much you know about things and stuff. We’ve got some prizes for the top students, so bring your thinking caps and competitive spirit.

The smart student shows up early to get some last minute studying in, and our taproom happens to open at 4pm. Just saying.

Nancie McDermott – Fruit: A Savor the South Cookbook @ McIntyre's Books
Sep 2 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Fruit collects a dozen of the South’s bountiful locally sourced fruits in a cook’s basket of fifty-four luscious dishes, savory and sweet. Demand for these edible jewels is growing among those keen to feast on the South’s natural pleasures, whether gathered in the wild or cultivated with care. Indigenous fruits here include blackberries, mayhaws, muscadine and scuppernong grapes, pawpaws, persimmons, and strawberries.
From old-school Grape Hull Pie to Mayhaw Jelly–Glazed Shrimp, McDermott’s recipes for these less common fruits are of remarkable interest–and incredibly tasty. The non-native fruits in the volume were eagerly adopted long ago by southern cooks, and they include damson plums, figs, peaches, cantaloupes, quince, and watermelons. McDermott gives them a delicious twist in recipes such as Fresh Fig Pie and Thai-Inspired Watermelon-Pineapple Salad.
McDermott also illuminates how the South – from the Great Smoky Mountains to the Lowcountry, from the Mississippi Delta to the Gulf Coast – encompasses diverse sub-regional culinary traditions when it comes to fruit. Her recipes, including a favorite piecrust, provide a treasury of ways to relish southern fruits at their ephemeral peak and to preserve them for enjoyment throughout the year.
Nancie McDermott is a North Carolina native, cooking teacher, and author of thirteen cookbooks, including Southern Cakes: Sweet and Irresistible Recipes for Everyday Celebrations.

Sheri Castle – Sugar Butter Flour: The Waitress Pie Book @ McIntyre's Books
Sep 9 @ 11:00 am

The official tie-in to Broadway’s hit musical Waitress, featuring the recipes for 3 dozen of the show’s most evocative and delicious pies.
In the cult classic movie-turned-Broadway production, the eternally optimistic protagonist of Waitress expresses her hopes, dreams, fears, and frustrations through the whimsically named pies she bakes each morning. Sugar, Butter, Flour celebrates this art of baking from the heart, with foolproof and flavorful pies for seduction, pies for mending a broken heart, pies for celebrating new beginnings and pies for all the little milestones that come afterwards.
Taking its inspiration from the iconic mile-high pies of the diner case, Sugar, Butter, Flour offers an array of showstopping pies, each with a twist that puts it over the top; from rum-spiked cookie crusts to hidden layers of passion fruit preserves, these are familiar favorites with hidden depths. The ideal gift for anyone who has ever eaten her feelings or baked away the blues, Sugar, Butter, Flour proves there’s a perfect pie for every occasion – and that everything looks better with pie.

Beyond Grand Cru Bordeaux @ The Granary

This wine class explores these hidden gems for Bordeaux lovers – from ready-to-drink vintages, second labels and properties, and even lesser-known chateaux that won’t break the bank.
$50 includes wine, tasting plate, service fee and tax. Reserve at 919.542.2121.
