Coffee, Mexican Brunch, and Mother's Day: The Triangle's Best Food Events 


In late April, Weekend—the aptly named, seasonal coffee shop that the cold-brew magnates of Slingshot run from their downtown Raleigh headquarters—announced it wouldn't open this year. Jenny and Jonathan Bonchak have continued to ramp up production for their bottled-and-boxed goods, meaning that weekends of pour-overs and fresh pastries no longer seemed sustainable.

Still, Weekend won't be entirely silent this year. On Saturday, May 7, Slingshot will partner with Centro for an on-site, ticketed brunch at ten a.m. It's a fundraiser for The Beehive Collective, which funds several nonprofit projects each year. The menu features all of Weekend's offerings, sweet-and-savory corn pancakes, and sausage chilaquiles. Centro and Slingshot will collaborate for a horchata concoction, too.

From mimosas and crepes to pastries and poached eggs, the menu's a full one. Speaking of Southern Season and families, the school hosts a class for kids on Saturday, May 7, focused on strawberries. Pre-teens will learn to bake with them, turn them into drinks, and hear stories about the state's favorite seasonal sweet.
