I feel a little bit mean writing about my evening, friends. Because, you see, a few of us went to the Yum Yum Supper Club in Durham, and I’m sorry to be the one to tell you this: you’ll have to wait for the seasons to change so you can get in on the next round. But plan on it! We’ll save you a seat.
The Yum Yum Supper Club is just a group of fine people hosting seasonal dinners with local food and local beer. A simple, and brilliant, idea. This season’s dinner was at Motorco, and they teamed up with Fullsteam for all the beer. So here’s how it went down:
We showed up at Motorco, having purchased tickets weeks ago and having eaten nothing but fruit and coffee all day in preparation. We tied on our cloth “tickets” and wasted no time getting to the appetizers.
I might have gone back for seconds and thirds including, but not limited to: fried battered squash with basil aioli, salami on toast with spicy mustard, and a “head cheese shot.”
(For the record, none of us went back for seconds on the head cheese. But I’m glad I tried it.) And the appetizers came with glasses of shandy, and a guy with a banjo.
After a fair amount of mingling, we gathered outside at the gorgeous tables.
And the we feasted. First course was bacon and eggs on toast with Rocket Science IPA,
At this point, since it is North Carolina, a small cataclysmic storm appeared out of nowhere, and the wind actually blew glasses off the table. So we had dessert inside,
and we all enjoyed our music and blueberry pies.
