To start off Served this week I’d like to offer big props to High Point’s Wesleyan Academy’s Servant Guys Ensemble, which crafted the winning jingle in Harris Teeter’s Sing My Jingle Contest. They will get their check for $10,000 on Wednesday at 2 p.m. at the school, where they will also be singing their jingle.
Also of note: PF Chang’s has conscripted its own wine label. The two wines, a sauvignon blanc and a syrah blend, are available at the restaurant now.
And Tate’s in Winston-Salem has opened on 4th Street offering classic anjd signature cocktails. Look for a story in this space soon.
But look no further for events in the Triad’s culinary scene this week.
Wednesday, as always, sees Wine Down Wednesday at Greensboro’s Hilton Garden Inn at 5:30 p.m. featuring live music, hors d’oeuvres and plenty of the schmooze. Also, Eating at Twin City Diner in Winston-Salem tonight will support the Student Enrichment Experience for students who bare blind or visually impaired.
