We're always looking for ways to give back to our community, especially during this season of giving!
Our Passport to Giving campaign is a great way to support a very important cause--the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina--while you're out enjoying meals at our restaurants! We’ve created a special feature cocktail at Poole’s, Poole'side, Death & Taxes, Beasley’s, Chuck's, and Fox Liquor Bar; and $2 from each purchase of one of these cocktails will be donated to the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina—from now through December 31st. So every time you drink one of these cocktails, you’re effectively donating $2 to support feeding those affected by hunger in our state. How great is that!?
This year, each of our cocktail names has been inspired by a holiday flick. Here are the cocktails:
At Poole’s, try the Ya Filthy Animal, named forHome Alone, featuring gin, Montenegro, cranberry, rosemary, ginger, and lemon.
At Poole'side, try the You’ll Shoot Your Eye Out, named for A Christmas Story, featuring bourbon, roasted pecans, vanilla, cinnamon cherry clove bitters.
At Beasley’s, try the Smiling Is My Favorite, named for Elf, featuring vodka, blackberry, thyme, lemon, sparkling wine.
At Chuck's, try the Yippee Ki Yay shake, named for Die Hard, a white chocolate peppermint milkshake with white rum.
At Death & Taxes, try the Cousin Eddie, named for Christmas Vacation, featuring bourbon, Maker’s Mark, dry vermouth, Angostura and orange bitters.
At Fox Liquor Bar, try the Total Agony of Being In Love, named for Love Actually, featuring scotch, sweet vermouth, Cheerwine, and orange.
To maximize our impact as a community, we're organizing a self-guided bar crawl! Grab a Passport to Giving card (available at any of our restaurants) and get a stamp for each of the 6 cocktails you try. If you complete the full crawl and get all 6 stamps on your passport card, you can redeem your Passport to Giving card at Fox Liquor Bar for a complimentary snack--Milk and Chocolate Chip Cookies--our way of saying thanks for supporting our team efforts to raise money for the Food Bank! We'll also enter your name into a drawing to win a $250 gift card to the AC Restaurants location of your choice.
So start your engines! It's time to drink for a good cause!
