Who's been living in this city since she was a teenager and has yet to go giddily traipsing through the halls of Discovery Place? That would be this girl. I don't know how I've managed to avoid the landmark museum all these years, but it might be time for me to check it off the Charlotte bucket list - with a pen in one hand and a cocktail in the other.
The Mixology: Combine Science with Celebration event will feature a variety of food and drink stations hosted by top area chefs. Featured chefs include molecular gastronomy phenom Chef David Quintina from Kobe Kreations, Chef Cassie Parsons from Harvest Moon Grille and the winner of Food Network's Cupcake Wars, Cupcrazed!
Door prizes and a silent auction also guarantee that you can end the night with more goodies than you began it with.
