Friday Foodstuffs for November 8, 2019: A Holiday Lull

The candy is running out, and the turkey won’t be around for a few weeks. We’ve hit a bit of a lull, and that’s OK. Plenty of eating will be done between now and the end of the year. But we have a few events this weekend to help get you through:

  • The good news: Savor Borgata is back this weekend with a multitude of events. The bad news: if you waited until now to get tickets, many events are sold out. Check the schedule to see which events are still available.
  • Starting at 5PM tonight, DiPaolo’s Red Lion Inn in Vincentown is hosting a Chili Contest. Tasting and judging begins at 6PM.
  • The Forked River Fire Department is having a food truck and fire pit event tonight from 6PM to 10PM. Tickets are $25, and for that you get beer, wine and snacks.
  • Forgotten Boardwalk is celebrating it’s 5th anniversary on Saturday with a number of special releases, including a barrel-aged beer that has been waiting five years to be tapped. The fun begins at 12PM.
  • Like spirits? Like cheese? Have a little of both this Saturday from 12PM to 5PM at Lazy Eye Distillery. It’s an International Cheese Pairing.
  • P.C. Richard & Son (go ahead – do the whistle jingle) in Mt. Laurel is holding a food truck festival on Sunday from 12PM to 5PM. Nick’s Roast Beef, Cow & Curd, and Philly Fry are just a few of the trucks that will be there.
  • On Veterans Day, Dino’s Diner in Seaville will be serving free breakfast to veterans from 7AM to 12PM.
  • And on November 15th, Renault Winery is having a Wine vs. Wine event. It’s a dinner pairing with a blind tasting to see how Renault’s wines stack up.

Other news of note from this past week include:

  • Alter Course Coffee Co. is having its launch party on Sunday from 12PM to 3PM at Camden FireWorks arts collective. Alter Course is not so much a food truck as it is a food trike, serving cold brew coffee in Camden.
  • Medford-based Harvest Coffee is having the grand opening of its Voorhees location on Saturday, opening up at 7AM (which is an excellent time for coffee).
  • Delights Artisan Cafe in Barnegat will have its official grand opening on Saturday as well, with two live musical performances as part of the festivities.
  • The Friends Giving collab brew is back this year. Local breweries Cape May Brewing. Double Nickel, Tonewood, and Philly’s Urban Village have gotten together again to produce a beer to raise funds for local charities.
