The Cookery Opens Its Doors Saturday for Duke vs. UNC

If you're trying to watch the Duke-versus-UNC basketball game Saturday night but have pulled the plug on cable and can't afford tickets that are going for up to eight thousand dollars on StubHub, here's an interesting viewing option: The Cookery, on Durham's Chapel Hill Street, will open its doors for Belly Up, an open house of sorts that will feature local food vendors as well as a giant screen to watch the game.

Pie Pushers will be on hand slinging wings and two variations on knots: dough balls filled with chicken and parmesan cheese, with either buffalo or Cackalacky sauce. The Sweeter Side will have macarons, cake pops, cookies, and more sweets. Both operations are among several area institutions using The Cookery for mobile food operations.

This is the third open house-style "pub night" that The Cookery has hosted. The interior space is generally reserved for private events, such as wedding receptions. Owner Rochelle Johnson says these nights allow the public to learn about The Cookery as much as their own neighbors.

“It’s an opportunity for The Cookery to open its doors to the neighborhood," she says. "Most of the folks that attend these events live pretty close to The Cookery, and a lot of people are able to gather that wouldn’t normally hang out together.”

There's no cover charge or registration required, but Johnson is requesting that people interested in attending RSVP via Facebook, to help Pie Pushers and Sweeter Side plan their prep.

"Incredibly racist" strikes me as a bit harsh (not to mention a bit simplistic)

Sure. It's because it refers to a well-known racist stereotype.
