Food things to do in Charlotte

  • Eat and help Johnson & Wales University's Cheerleading Club. Yes, JWU has varsity basketball and volleyball and the things that go with them, like cheerleaders. Unfortunately, the cheerleaders don't have some of the things they need, like uniforms and pom-poms. So they're holding a spaghetti dinner at 5 p.m. Saturday (Feb/ 18) at Mount Moriah Primitive Baptist, 747 W. Trade St. It's all you can eat, eat-in or carryout. $8 for adults, $5 for children.
  • Ready to learn more about wine? The Fig Tree Restaurant will host a seven-week course led by James Corbin of Grapevine Distribution. Classes are at 6:30 p.m. Mondays starting Feb. 20. Cost: $195. Details: www.charlottefigtree.com, or call 74-332-3322 or email contactus@charlottefigtree.com.
  • Just as you start missing the Valentine chocolate, it will be time for the Sweet Tooth Festival, Charlotte 's first drop-in event featuring people who make cupcakes, candies, cookies and other sweets. The "sample-happy" occasion is 2-6 p.m. Feb. 19 at Blacklion, 10605 Park Road. Tickets are $25 and a portion of the proceeds will go to The Joe Martin ALS Foundation. Vendors expected include Cupcrazed Cakery, Vin Master, Secret Chocolatier, FuManChu Cupcakes and Yoforia. Details and tickets: www.sweettoothfestival.com.
