Levine has 2 great food events

Need a better taste of the city and the region where you live? Tom Hanchett and the Levine Museum of the New South have you covered:

Munching Tour: Central Avenue, noon Saturday, May 5. Hanchett will lead a "Jane's Walk," in honor of urban scholar Jane Jacobs, around the neighborhood at Rosehaven and Central. Expect Vietnamese, Salvadoran and Somali food. It's free, but you need to bring $10 to $20 for purchase snacks. Limited to 15 people, so you have to RSVP to get a spot. Call 704-687-1203 or email mnewsom@uncc.edu.

New South for the New Southerner: Eating Local, 5:30-7:30 p.m. May 15 at the museum, 200 E. 7th St. The museum has been doing these lectures for years (I've spoken at a couple) and they're fun evenings. This time, the subject is "Eating Local," with Cassie Parsons of Grateful Growers Farm and the Harvest Moon Grill and county extension agent Kristin Davis. It's free for museum members or $10 for nonmembers and includes wine and a Southern buffet dinner. Again, you need to reserve a spot. Call 704-333-1887, ext. 501, or email rsvp@museumofthenewsouth.org.
