There’s a ton of reasons Tony and I loved the semi-monthly Triangle Tweet-up. We get to see friends, make some new ones, and get to try food at new and interesting places around the area. This month’s tweet-up was no exception, I’ve been dying to go to Six Plates (2812 Erwin Road, Durham, NC 27705) and the combination of food and friends made it a great night and a very much needed break from all of the holiday prep.

Last Thursday was the Triangle Tweet-up at Cary’s Lucky 32 (7307 Tryon Road
Cary, NC 27518). As always, the event was hosted by the lovely ladies @andreaweigl and @durhamfoodie. Tony and I thought that the Moldy Peaches’ song “Lucky Number Nine” should have been co-opted for the event, but I guess we wouldn’t have been able to get the rights in time. Luckily, the food there was so good, it didn’t need fanfare.

We both had an awesome time at the first Foodie Tweetup, so when we heard that they were planning a second one, we were both excited to get another chance to hang out and try out a new local restaurant.
We were definitely excited by the prospect of a Triangle foodie tweetup, but nothing could have prepared us for the great time we had at Wednesday’s event. Neither Julia nor myself had ever been to Pittsboro, so we had to rely on our trusty GPS to get us where we were going. Unfortunately, upon leaving work, we found that the address on the tickets was not a valid address in our GPS (perhaps a sign that we need to update it). So, we had Tom Tom navigate to the center of Pittsboro and hoped for the best. Luckily,the route took us right by Fearrington which we realized was an ideallic little farm + country inn.

Back to your regular programming this weekend with a review, but I have one more plug to make. I am excited by the fact that Andrea Weigl has helped to bring a Foodie tweetup to the Triangle May 19th. For the fairly nominal fee of 6$ you get a night of foodie related discussion, hors d’oeuvres, and live music at the new beer garden at Fearrington Village in Pittsboro. I hope to see you there, as both Julia and I are planning on attending (though possibly fashionably late).
