|Roadfood 2014 Fall Eating Tour: Charlotte, North Carolina
October 17-18, 2014
Prepare your appetite for the sweetest smoked swine, the crustiest fried chicken, pimiento cheese galore, and peerless banana pudding. This fall's Roadfood tour will take place October 17-18 in and around Charlotte, North Carolina.
CLT airport is a major hub and flights are currently very cheap, so if you are planning to come along and arrive by plane, do book your reservations now. We suggest flying into town by the evening of Thursday, October 16, so we can get an early start on Friday. We plan for the tour to end by late afternoon Saturday, and we will schedule the tour bus to make a stop at the airport, so you can book a flight out any time after 6pm on the 18th.
Stephen is working on getting us a good hotel deal.
What will we be eating? Barbecue, of course, at some of the finest hog parlors on earth, from Indian Land, South Carolina, to the legendary barbecue town of Lexington and the unique joys of Keaton's in Statesville, whose proprietor is a special Roadfood friend. Of course, there's superb fried chicken, and we are thinking of fish-camp supper and maybe a visit to Food Truck Friday in the city's historic South End. The trip wouldn't be complete without pimiento cheese, Cupcrazed cupcakes, and banana pudding … but the itinerary is still taking shape. Nobody knows more about the food of Charlotte and of the South in general than Charlotte Observer food editor, Kathleen Purvis, who has long been a friend of Roadfood and who will likely be joining us along the way.
Please join us for what promises to be a memorable weekend in one of the most Roadfood-rich parts of the country.
The ticket price of $249 includes a place on the bus and a couple of the special meals, but most food will be pay as you go.
