Learn to cook with Ashley and 2 more James Beard winners

Here’s our version of a perfect Sunday: An Italian-inspired cooking demo hosted by three James Beard Award-winning chefs! Our very own Ashley Christensen alongside Tandy Wilson (of City House in Nashville, TN), and Sarah Grueneberg (of Monteverde in Chicago) are teaming up to show off their best tips and techniques. 

Each chef will take a turn demonstrating their dish in the test kitchen of Bridge Club, and afterwards, you will get your own sample of their creation. Their inspiration will be taken from Italian cuisine, because pasta and fresh mozzarella sound like a dream for breakfast, right?  We’ll be providing the essential brunch libations as well: coffee and brunch cocktails, in the form of a spritz!

This unique experience will take place on Sunday, August 25, from 11:00-12:30 at our events loft space, Bridge Club. Even better? The proceeds from this brunch will go to benefit Southern Foodways Alliance. There are limited spots for this intimate brunch experience, get your tickets here

AC Restaurants Guide to Fourth Of July Week

Summer means longer days, hotter weather, weekends at the lake and endless cookouts. July is right around the corner, and that means Fourth of July festivities are quickly approaching!

On Thursday, July 4th, Poole's Diner, Death & Taxes, and Fox Liquor Bar will be CLOSED; Beasley's Chicken & Honey and Chuck's Burgers will be open for regular business hours, from 11:30am to 10pm.

Though you can’t dine with us at Poole’s on the fourth, we can still be with you in the form of Poole’s Cookbook. Think of your family's reaction when you carry out trays of Charred Summer Squash with fresh herbs, Short Ribs, and Warm Broccoli Salad with Cheddar and Bacon Vinaigrette. You’ll have a feast to make Ashley herself proud! Get your copy of Poole’s: Recipes and Stories from a Modern Diner here or pick up a copy at the shop this weekend. 

All our restaurants will be open for regular business hours starting Friday, July 5th. We hope you have a very happy and safe holiday!

A Rainbow Of Dishes To Celebrate Pride

Happy PRIDE Month! We love this time of the year. In addition to celebrating all month long, we are having pride-inspired features at all of our restaurants this week. All proceeds from these specials will be donated to LGBTQ Center Of Raleigh.

Head over to Beasley’s and get the Pride Bowl, a bowl of hot fried chicken served over mashed potatoes and drizzled with buttermilk herb dressing. Next door at Chuck’s we’re featuring totchos, a cross between tots and nachos, topped with either hot buffalo chicken dip or drenched in cheesy bacon goodness (we’re already drooling). Be sure to grab a rainbow shake to round out your colorful meal!

At Fox Liquor Bar we’ve crafted the Pride Flight, a set of six rainbow-colored shooters, pleasing to both your eyes and your tastebuds. Fox is featuring totchos too, for all of your late-night snack needs.

And when the weekend rolls around, be sure to pop by Poole’s for brunch. We’re featuring funfetti hotcakes on Saturday and Sunday this weekend. You can’t miss a brunch like this...

Try one, try ALL. Grab your pals, and come celebrate with us!

People’s Cocktail | Matt Kelly pops up in Raleigh for one night only

Eat, Drink, and Support Our Fellow Community

For those who have never attended one of our People’s Cocktail events, the typical premise is this: four bartenders who craft four specialty cocktails, each cocktail having a partnering charity. Each cocktail ordered equals a vote cast for the aligned charity, and the people of the community decide who the winner of the evening by ordering drinks. Sounds great, right?

This coming Monday, May 20, we are hosting a very special edition of People's Cocktail! We welcome our dear friend and Durham's bearded sweetheart, Matt Kelly, to the foxhole to showcase a pop up menu of snacks from his incredible restaurant, Saint James. We’ll still be featuring four specialty cocktails, but there will be no “good hearted” rivalry involved. This month, all proceeds will go to one cause.

Saint James, along with several other businesses, has been closed since a deadly explosion blasted through downtown Durham last month. The repercussions of this tragedy are still being felt by the community, so all proceeds from Monday's event will go toward a recovery fund set up to provide aid to those impacted by the blast. Funds will be distributed to those who were injured, who are out of work based on closed places of business, and to those trying to rebuild.

Come out on Monday to try some incredible cocktails and snacks, but even more so, to help and support our fellow community members.
