Cuisine Crawl

Sunday, 60+ Rotarians and Duke Rotary Peace Fellows enjoyed food and fellowship in downtown Durham. Appetizers at the urban chic condo of Bill and Lucy Stokes were accompanied by great architecture and stunning rooftop deck views. Wine and bubbly was enjoyed by all, along with catered delicious Foster’s appetizers.

Then, divided into three groups and led by Rotarian restaurant guides, folks headed off to ‘crawl’ to Taberna Tapas, Dos Perros and Pompieri Pizza. With downtown Durham’s esteemed restaurant scene, we took advantage of the great food to be had downtown. Great food and conversation. With words of ‘we can’t eat another mouthful’, all were proved wrong when we departed our respective restaurants and headed to Arthur Roger’s Eno Ventures office, patio and ‘off alley’ urban chic offices. There we managed to consumer delicious desserts from Big Bundt’s Bakery and enjoyed our Indian summer weather on the patio.

It was a great event and the Fellowship Committee of Nancy Gordon, Tammie Sellman, Calla & Harvey Sellner, Mal White, Ellen Cassilly, Lynn Richardson, Jenny Levine, Emily Page, Shannon Leskin, Anna Jones and Jose and Meg Solera hope to keep the party rolling next year. Who know’s where it will end up then?

If anybody thinks Rotary is just for grumpy old guys with gray hair, you should attend one of our parties. Too many good pictures to try to pick the ten best. Here are the 44 best in four sliders.
