Durham’s Carolina Theatre is celebrating its 90th anniversary with a gourmet three-course dinner served on the historic main stage on Nov. 16. The twist? All three courses will be prepared by some of the Triangle’s most popular food trucks.
“This is more of a gourmet pop-up dinner than the phrase ‘food truck dinner’ might imply,” Treat Harvey, Carolina Theatre Director of Development wrote in an e-mail. “The chefs of American Meltdown, Pie Pushers, and Chirba Chirba want to show off their skills beyond their usual food truck fare, so they are preparing a 3-course menu for us!”
Guests will enjoy an open bar with craft beer, wine, and Alley Twenty Six tonic spritzers along with live music with performances by North Carolina singer-songwriter Rebecca Newton and Chapel Hill pianist Robert Griffin.
Tickets are $90 each ($60 of which is tax deductible) and there are seatings available at 6 p.m. and 9 p.m. Tickets are available through Eventbrite and guests can choose their preferred time on the ticketing website.
The Carolina Theatre is Durham’s oldest continually operating theatre, and plays host to a number of films, live performances and other events throughout the year including the North Carolina Gay & Lesbian Film Festival, the Nevermore Film Festival and the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival.
