It’s crazy to think that you should already probably be thinking about your New Years’ plans, but the holiday season is just whizzing by! An excellent local option is Taste The Event’s “Bull City New Year’s Eve celebration at The Cookery in downtown Durham. The carnival-themed soiree will feature music by DJ Elbruque, food stations by The Catering Company of Chapel Hill, a wine and champagne bar, cash bar, carnival games and a photo booth! Food will mirror the theme, with treats like homemade corn dogs, fresh and organic popcorn and hot doughnuts and is included (along with 3 glasses of champagne) in the ticket price! A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will go to the Durham Branch of the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina. Click here for more details and to purchase tickets.
