Food to Go: The Triangle's Best Food Events for March 2-8 


Since 1986, A Toast to the Triangle has gathered together some of the area's top kitchens and bars to raise money for Raleigh's long-running Tammy Lynn Center for Developmental Disabilities. For the last two years, the event's even surpassed the $200,000 mark. Each year, vendors win juried categories ("best appetizer," "best entrée," and so on), prompting the chefs to vie for prime palate pleasers. They've promised big surprises for this year's thirtieth-annual event on March 6—and hopefully record-breaking totals, too. Tickets run $75 for nearly three hours of feasting at N.C. State's McKimmon Center.


Located at the top of Raleigh's Glenwood South, near where the bacchanal avenue intersects with Hillsborough Street, the bottle shop Stag's Head often gets overlooked for the flood of pubs, beer gardens, and bars beneath it. Maybe this week helps change that: Oak City Comicon hosts its first-ever "drink-and-draw" at Stag's Head March 7, with early arrivers getting free swag from Ultimate Comics. The big one, though, comes March 5, when a "Michigan Tap Takeover" brings some incredible beers from the Great Lakes state to North Carolina for the first time. Bell's Milchkaffee Stout and Oatmeal Stout? Dark Horse's Rain in Blood and Sarsaparilla 666? Aged New Holland favorites? Sure, we'll pretend to be wolverines. Elsewhere in beer news, Raleigh Brewing Company turns three with a twelve-hour party featuring bands, food, and, you know, brews Saturday, March 5.
