Exploring the culture, food, and traditions of North Carolina

Friday Links – February 9th, 2018

YALL! The Winter Olympics start today. I have to admit, I love watching the curling. It makes ZERO sense to me and I love it. I am also a real sucker for ice skating. Something very romantic about the pairs… ice dancing too. I took lessons in skating for about 5 minutes when I was younger (and dance, and gymnastics…. horses ended up being my niche! So southern… always!)

We’ve got a few North Carolina reps in the games this time! Will you be watching?

Here’s what caught my eye this week!

-Have you have Jowl Bacon before? Man is it a game changer! Check out Alchemy Farms in Atkinson if you looking for fresh and local in the Wilmington NC area.

Leah Wong Ashburn (Highland Brewery) was recognized in Business North Carolina’s Top 100 of NC’s most influential business leaders! Congrats!

And if you missed it… my Broad Branch Distillery article was posted Wednesday!
