This week in the Triad, a special at the Mellow Mushroom restaurants harkens back to the place’s groovy past with a special that alludes to the demographic group that built the franchise: stoners. The High on Thai promotion, on the surface, has nothing to do with Thai stick, a favored strain for aficionados, but refers to the cuisine of Thailand with dishes like the Thai Dye pizza with chicken, veggies and sweet chili sauce; the Thai Mi Up hoagie, with steak and sriracha-broccoli slaw; and the Big Buddha salad. What you do before you do eat is your own business.
The Cherry Pit CafÃ© & Pie Shop is opening on Pisgah Church Road in Greensboro as early as next week. The Cobblestone Farmers Market in Winston-Salem is moving to Holly Avenue between Spruce and Poplar streets during the Sawtooth’s summer class schedule. And the Greensboro Farmer’s Curb Market reminds that the last Wednesday in June is a SNAP bonus day — every SNAP customer who uses EBT gets $20 in tokens to spend at the market.
Pizza Hut is now serving flatbreads. Wendy’s has a pretzel-bacon cheeseburger tat’s going national. And Hooter’s now has a late-night menu. Betting there’s some wings on it.
Did you know Table 16 in Greensboro serves a lobster corndog? Well now you do, so get your ass over there and get one. If your tastes run more to the epicurean, try the tasting menu on Thursday nights — bring a bottle of wine and the chef will create a tasting menu to match it.
Also on Thursday, Whole Foods Market in Winston-Salem holds a Twitter chat at 6 p.m. titled “Local Favorites.” Cheese, bread, beer and produce will be among the topics discussed under the hashtag #wfmdish.
On Friday, Undercurrent in Greensboro recovers from its Fire in the Triad blues to put on the Best Wines You Never Heard Of wine dinner at 6:30 p.m. Make a rezzie at 336.370.1266.
Saturday is Peach Day at the Greensboro Farmers Curb Market, and Flag Giveaway Day at the Dixie Classic Farmers Market. It’s also the tail end of Carolina strawberry season, so go get you some.
