Twin City Kiwanis Club’s Pancake Jamboree Friday, February 6th 2015

For more information click here to visit their website.

 

YOU ARE INVITED TO ATTEND THE 2015 PANCAKE JAMBOREE ON FRIDAY, FEB. 6, at the BENTON CONVENTION CENTER.

Friday, February 6 marks the return of one of my favorite events in the community and one of the best places to get people together over food: the Twin City Kiwanis Club’s Pancake Jamboree! This annual event, which draws hundreds of people, will be held at downtown the Benton Convention Center from 6:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

It’s a great experience for which people have queued up for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The appeal of the Jamboree is that it’s one of the few times you might enjoy a down-home meal, family-style, among friends and co-workers-a rarity in the fast-paced world we live in today. The great thing is, you’ll probably run into people you might not have seen all winter and share a little time together.

Tickets are $7 for adults, $3 for children under 12. Proceeds benefit the Twin City Kiwanis Clubs community projects.

Dixie Classic Fair History and Facts

dcfair1960

The scrambler ride at the Dixie Classic Fair, 1960.

The Dixie Classic Fair Winston Salem is generally held at the beginning of October. It is a ten-day event. The Dixie Classic Fair is an annual fair held in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. The fair takes place every autumn on the Dixie Classic Fairgrounds (formerly known as the Forsyth County Fairgrounds), which is part of the Winston-Salem Entertainment-Sports Complex; the grounds are located adjacent to the Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum. 371,219 attended the 2007 Dixie Classic Fair, which was a new attendance record. This attendance record elevated the Dixie Classic Fair to the 50th largest attended Fair in North America.

Joe White and Jim Dalrymple, at left, examine heads for the baldest man contest at the Dixie Classic Fair, 1967.

The fair began in the former town of Salem as a grain exposition in 1882 (2007 was the 125th anniversary). In 1897, the Piedmont Tobacco Fair was started and shortly thereafter the two events merged to form the Winston-Salem Fair. The fair moved to its current fairgrounds in 1952 and changed its name to the “Dixie Classic Fair for Northwest North Carolina” in 1956. Today, the event is most commonly known as just the Dixie Classic Fair.

There is a wide variety of entertainment and activities that are suitable for the entire family. Rides, games, livestock competitions, wine tasting, and arts and crafts workshops are just a few of the reasons why Dixie Fair 2014 will be better than ever. ~Scott Ray

Apple History at Bethabara Park

Bethabara is the 1753 site of the First Moravian settlement in North Carolina

When Moravians arrived in Bethabara in 1753, they almost immediately set about planting apple trees from seeds brought from Europe. According to records, it was recommended to plant six apple trees for every family member.

Within a few years, all the hills around the Park were filled with apple orchards. It is estimated between five and eight acres, according to the maps the Moravians kept.

Apples were among Bethabara’s biggest products, probably not far behind cattle. The settlers also probably traded grafts from apple trees to pioneers who passed through Bethabara on their way our west.

Historically, apples were a big part of American life. In the Piedmont, people mostly dried apples but the Moravians built root cellars where fresh apples could be kept for a long time.

Apples were used the same as today – dried apples in pies, apple cider to drink, as a side dish and as vinegar.

We celebrate Apple Festival with a tribute to the Moravian way of life on this day.

FESTIVAL DETAILS:
• Friday thru Sunday
• Admission: $5 for adults, $3 for seniors and students, $1 for children
Military service members get in at no charge

Pigfoot. Big Boned. Porky Butts.  They’re not names of pro wrestlers. They are just some of the barbecue pitmasters who will be competing at the East West BBQ Fest this weekend in downtown Greensboro.

Whether it’s ribs, brisket, pork butt or chicken, you’ll probably find it at the three-day barbecue and music festival, where pitmasters from North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Alabama, Arkansas, Texas and Ohio will convene.

Other food and beverage vendors will line the midway, as well.

In addition to the barbecue, the festival will have a main stage with music acts such as up-and-coming Nashville star Brandon Bailey, acoustic singer Natalie Gelman, bluesman Lightnin’ Charlie and rockers Bootleg Dynasty.

The festival features sideshow acts such as the Squidling Brothers and the risque Defiant Whisky Shady Lady Saloon.

And there will even be wrestlers.

This year, the festival features Lucha Libre masked-style wrestlers with matches Friday night and all day Saturday and Sunday.

It also will have a market where vendors will sell all sorts of cool things and services.

This is the festival’s third year, and it moves from Festival Park to a new location on East Washington Street.

The event is produced by Allen McDavid of AKA Entertainment and Media, which is behind the popular Texas Pete Twin City RibFest in Winston-Salem and other festivals across the state.

On May 16, 17 and 18, the Greek community is inviting everyone to its Annual Greek Festival at the Greek Orthodox Church. 435 Keating Drive, off of Country Club Road & Silas Creek Parkway. Here’s what’s on tap for the weekend: plenty of Greek dancing, informative tours of the beautiful church, and shopping at the Agora (Market Place), where you can purchase arts, crafts and other goodies. Speaking of goodies, the most important part of the festival in my opinion, is the F-O-O-D. And lots of it! Think: Gyros, moussaka, pastitsio, souvlaki and my favorite, spanakopita!

The festival hours on Friday and Saturday: 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Admission is $1.00. You can also call in take-out orders from the event. Telephone: 765-FOOD (3663).

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Just off Stratford Road on a recent afternoon, several men sat on the front porch of a rustic, wooden building, chatting among themselves and watching life go on around them.

Cigar smoke drifted along on a gentle breeze.

The men were customers at Twin City Cigar Co., a boutique cigar and pipe lounge on Mill Street, just off Stratford. John Anetrella opened the business, which focuses strictly on pipe tobacco and cigars, in January 2013. The lounge is housed in a building that was part of the mill village of Hanestown.

“This whole place is about the culture of cigars,” Anetrella said of Twin City Cigar.

Anetrella, who lives in Winston-Salem and is a cigar smoker, also runs a technology company called Causa Technologies. He had previously visited a cigar lounge in Greensboro before deciding to open his own lounge.

He said he wanted to create a…
