Parties For The Park: Hot-n-Spicy Hootenanny Swap Meet ft. Cajammers & Larry Mangum

Close your Zoom app, turn off your pad! Join Tess in the big backyard of her 1923 farmhouse for gumbo, jalapeño cornbread, dirty rice and more NOLA-inspired fare to enjoy with two glasses of craft beer or wine.
To DCP staffers Tess and Bryce, a hootenanny is where folk music can mean country, soul, Cajun or hip hop, so get ready for Cajammers, live! We’re talking Cajun waltzes, two steps, zydeco, blues, and other Louisiana-inspired tunes, including songs in Cajun French. Special Guest songwriter Larry Mangum will be there too.
Throw in a swap meet and everyone goes home with unforgettable memories and a new treasure. Each ticket holder should bring 1-2 sanitized personal items to swap and the story that goes with them. A zero waste event.
Tickets: $45, tips encouraged!
Guests: 20, masks and vaccinations required

Parties For The Park: Oh Mexico!

Hosts: Plum Restaurant 

Lisa Callahan, owner, with chef Trent Shank

 

Come join us at Plum for an autumn fiesta. Chef Trenton Shank cut his culinary teeth working and eating at taco trucks around Dallas, his hometown.  The deep impression it made on him gets full expression in our dinner to benefit Durham’s Central Park.  

We will start the evening with cocktails: margaritas for sure; and some delicious sparkling wines from our local wine hero, Andre Tamers and his company; De Maison Selections.  We will pass chicharrones with lime and chili and arrange chips and salsa around the room for everyone to enjoy.  Then the feast begins with a favorite special here at Plum: aquachili; a delicious Mexican ceviche; albondigas; meatballs in a rich tomato sauce, and the addictive, delicious Mexican street corn; roasted ears of corn with queso and spices.  

The main dishes include handmade brisket tamales in a BBQ mole and a traditional chicken in cream sauce with roasted winter squash and salsa verde.  The final course will be our pastry chef; Emma Spalding’s version of pastel de tres leches.

We hope this will be a meal and an evening to remember.  Join us and help us keep our beloved Central Park growing and evolving with Durham.  We look forward to serving you this very special dinner for the park at Plum.
