Taste of Wilmington




February 2019


Hello everyone, greetings from Big Sky, MT! I just finished a terrific week of skiing in Deer Valley, UT where the conditions were perfect with great temperatures. Big Sky is much colder and we are under a winter weather advisory until Monday morning. Over a foot of snow is predicted! About 20-some of our fellow CFSOC members are expected to arrive here for a week of skiing and other fun activities.

This is a short month and since so many of us are more than likely taking advantage of the ski season and the incredible snow out west, we postponed this month’s Taste of Wilmington to Wed., 2/20, and we will skip our Monthly Happy Hour.

We are still looking to plan some SPRING activities. Yona Bar-Zeev has organized a Tennis Outing for March (see details below under UPCOMING CFSOC EVENTS & OUTINGS) but we are looking to add some other events, too. If you are interested in hosting an activity, please let me know.

Dram + Morsel 33 South Front St. Wilmington, NC 28401 910.833.5999

Meet at the bar at 6:00 PM; dinner at 6:30 PM.

From their website: “Dram + Morsel is designed to incorporate the appeal of industrial elegance, a communal atmosphere, and a relaxed, more connected dining experience. The concept was inspired by the aura of metropolitan boutique hotel lobbies.”
This popular restaurant features tapas style dishes, broken into four menu categories: Snacks, Greens, Bites, and Sliders. Favorite items include meat pies; pretzel bites; burger-, chicken- & veggie-sliders; and chicken wings. The menu also includes a variety of craft cocktails with exotic names as Secret Garden, Social Butterfly, and Green Lipstick.

There are a few footnotes about this restaurant you should be aware of, although nothing much to deter hardy skiers! Dram + Morsel shares a 3-story building with two other restaurants/bars; D+M is on the third floor of the building. (The Husk is on the first floor and YoSake is on the second floor.) There is a stairway leading from the first to the third floor however, for those of you who would like to save their energy for the slopes, there is an elevator on the Dock Street side at the back of the building.

As requested by those who participated in the last Tennis event, we will add an additional tennis event for a total of three, rather than two, in 2019. We will try and hold the events in March, July and October.

CYCLE NORTH CAROLINA Fri, 4/26-Sun, 4/28 During last month’s meeting, Al Bishop talked about an upcoming bicycle trip he and his wife Margret, are participating in known as the Coastal Ride organized by Cycle North Carolina. It is a 3-day ride in Edenton, NC, with various loop route options from 5 – 100 miles, April 26-28 (which just so happens to be the same weekend as the Spring Conference).


About The Cycle North Carolina Coastal Ride offers participants and their families a fun-filled 3-day weekend while both on and off the bike. Start your day by hopping on your bike and exploring one of the many fully supported routes this ride has to offer. Each day will feature a variety of routes ranging anywhere from 5 miles to 100 miles. The flat roads and minimal traffic counts will allow you to fully experience all of the sights and sounds of the Edenton area including an abundance of coastal wildlife and many historic sites that are deeply rooted to the local communities.

Edenton also has plenty of activities for when you are off of the bike. Those that are feeling adventurous can take a kayak expedition or do a little paddle boarding while those looking to relax a little might prefer to explore the mix of boutiques, antique shops and restaurants in the downtown area.

WHEN: April 26-28, 2018
WHERE: Downtown Edenton Waterfront
COST: $235 per rider, ages 17 & older
ACCOMMODATIONS: Indoor, Outdoor & RV camping available, see
