Things To Do
Decisions, Decisions: A Pint of PB & J or Peeps Beer?
A Peeps-inspired beer release or PB& J on tap?! Yes please! Go grab a pint of Catawba Brewing's two newest beer releases: Where My Peeps At - S’mores Porter and the PB&J. Pair your pint with some amazing wings from Deli Llammma. The wings are marinated in an Amaretto glaze with a raspberry chipotle sauce and tossed in peanut crumbs.
For the last two decades brilliant musical activities, all associated with the name Aaron Price or the initials AP. This guy does it all, and if you are looking to finally celebrate some LIVE and IN-PERSON shows, this is a must-see! Head over to the newly re-opened Grey Eagle for this Saturday show with doors opening at 6 pm. Be sure to mask up and get a reservation early!

Farm to School + Hickory Nut Gap Hickory Nut Gap is excited to announce their partnership with the North Carolina Farm to School Program, a state-wide voluntary program established in 1997 to provide NC schools with local, NC-grown products. Hickory Nut Gap teamed up with the Farm to School Program amidst the COVID-19 pandemic in November 2020 as one of the first two suppliers of local grass-fed and pasture-raised meats. This partnership was a match made in heaven, as both organizations have a passion for educating children about the origins of their food and also strive to provide the most nutritious, locally-sourced food to their communities.
