UPDATE: The Cash Cab was postponed to Wednesday (Dec. 22) next week and will leave from Fork in the Alley. Same times apply.
UPDATE 10:30 a.m. Thursday: As far as I know, these events are still on. Will post another update on this entry if I find out otherwise.
I’ve got details about a couple of food-related events happening Thursday (Dec. 16) evening.
First, the owners of Fork in the City and Fork in the Alley are having a fun little event tomorrow night that they’re calling “Christmas Cash Cab.” They’ve got an 8-passenger yellow checkered cab called the “Fork 2 Fork Cab” that will be carrying passengers around for a tour of Christmas lights and some fun Christmas trivia with “host” Sam Hensley. Winners will receive FITC/FITA gift cards.
The cab departs from Fork in the Alley on Crystal Spring Avenue in South Roanoke at 7, 8 and 9 p.m. If you miss this occasion, there will be another Cash Cab event on Dec. 23, when the cab will depart from Fork in the City.
Next up, gentlemen who have a lady who loves to cook might want to head to Gourmet Pantry at 401 S. Main St. in Blacksburg on Thursday (Dec. 16) evening for a little help with last-minute Christmas shopping for the gal. On this 10th Annual “Gentlemen’s Night Out,” there will be champagne, hors d’oeuvres, free gift wrapping, and sales and specials on many items, including Wustof knives and Le Creuset cookware. Store employees will be happy to help shoppers pick out the perfect gift.
