All Saints Episcopal Church’s Bayou Bash turns 12 this year! Friday, Nov. 4, 6-10 p.m. there will be dancing under the oaks at the corner of Ann and Government streets as guests enjoy food from Stevie’s Kitchen, plenty of drinks and entertainment provided by DJ Rhettro spinning old-school vinyl. These are some of the city’s favorite silent and live auctions so don’t miss your chance at a boat trip, a progressive dinner and a condo stay, to name a few.
Tickets are $35 per person and are available at the church or by phone at 251-438-2492. Children 12 and under get in free. All net proceeds go toward local charities including L’Arche, McKemie Place, 15Place, Family Promise, summer camp for 40 inner-city youth and the church’s refugee resettlement program.
There is a lot to love at this event, and a little birdie told me there may be bacon-wrapped Conecuh.
Island Wing Co. changes hands
The wings are still delicious, but the ownership is different. Island Wing Co. at 2617 Dauphin St. near the tracks briefly shut down for refurbishment and improvements. At the time of this writing the grand reopening was planned for Halloween Day at 11 a.m.
No need to worry, folks. You can get your Midtown chicken wing fix again. Make sure you also try the mac and cheese.
Curate opens at MMoA
The wait is over for Chef Gillian Clark’s latest venture. Curate is the hippest trend at the Mobile Museum of Art, 4850 Museum Drive, with locally sourced farm-to-table dining led by the Nappie Awards’ Best Chef in 2015 and 2016.
In a word or two, it’s food art. Check out the pics on social media. Reservations may be in order since Curate is only open Thursday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and 5-8 p.m. and Sunday brunch from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Take advantage of what our museum has to offer and what has been described as Spring Hill’s only waterfront dining.
World Food Championships hit The Wharf
No sooner do we get The Hangout Oyster Cook-Off tucked away, the beach bustles again with the World Food Championships Wednesday through Sunday, Nov. 9-13.
General admission is free for this ultimate food fight that pits hundreds of cooking and culinary teams from around the world against each other in nine categories. Only one will leave as World Food Champion, with $100,000 in cash and prizes.
It’s a packed week as Thursday night there will be a Low Country Boil benefiting Operation BBQ Relief. Careful, it’s all-you-can-eat for $20. Friday, Saturday and Sunday the Chef Challenge will feature a multi-round tournament showcasing local, international and Food TV stars. There’s even a Bourb’nque event at gorgeous Heron Pointe, walking distance from the WFC Kitchen Arena. Think Jim Beam samples, pork and recipes with everything, from a general admission to VIP ticket.
I could fill these pages with all that’s going on. It’s best you visit their website at www.worldfoodchampionships.com for all the skinny. See you there!
And don’t forget to recycle!
