The third annual Hook + Vine seafood and wine festival is set for noon-4 p.m. April 24 in downtown Raleigh.
The event is a collaboration between two Raleigh businesses: Locals Seafood, a North Carolina seafood retailer and wholesaler, and The Wine Feed, a retail wine shop and bar on Glenwood South.
The event will take place on a part of Johnson Street off Glenwood Avenue. Chefs from five restaurants will prepare tastings of North Carolina seafood dishes, which will be paired with a wine. The participating restaurants include Centro, Capital Club 16, Provenance and Plates Neighborhood Kitchen, all in Raleigh, and Boiler Room Oyster Bar in Kinston.
Tickets cost $40. VIP tickets are $50, which allow guests to enter the festival one hour earlier and also include a complimentary glass of sparkling wine.
To purchase tickets, go to thewinefeed.com or call 919-374-0036. A portion of ticket sales will be donated to the United Arts Council of Raleigh and Wake County.
