Food World: Tango and Coffee and Cash

  • It doesn't take two to tango in Mooresville. The wine shop 202 Wines, 202 N. Main St., is now offering Argentine-style tango lessons on Wednesday nights, starting Feb. 10. (Yes, that would be tomorrow. Or today, depending on when you check in here.) It starts with a social hour at 7 p.m., then beginner lessons at 7:30 and practica at 9 p.m. First-time dancers get a free glass of wine. You don't have to bring a partner. And it's free, although donations are accepted. Call the shop at 704-663-5445 if you need to know more.
  • Celebrate coffee and raise money for Haiti. The Coffee Garden, 7900 Stevens Mill Road in Matthews, is the site for the Thursday Night Coffee Throwdown for the group Charlotte Coffee Community. It starts at 7 p.m., with baristas from all over the city making latte art to raise money for Haiti relief. They'll accept donations from customers and baristas.
