Celtic Picnic Dinner & Solas Concert at American Tobacco -Fri. May 17th!

Hey, Celtic Culture Friends!  I am postponing the potluck from May 10th, because we are now doing the Mead tasting on Sat, May 11th. Most responses I got favored this idea.  AND - I found out that the Celtic powerhouse band Solas is opening the outdoor concerts at American Tobacco campus in Durham! 

SO - bring your picnic potluck dish with you and let's eat on the lawn at ATC's Diamond View Park - that's the lawn right in front of DPAC on Blackwell St. -  and hear the free concert!!  WE can share food just as we would at my house!    I am thinking that someone (like me and  Jackie?) can bring  a bucket of kentucky grilled chicken - and/or veggie burgers  - for entrees - and everyone else can bring side dishes and desserts - what do you think? 

bring your chair, your food and drink, and come join us!!

    Yes - Let's indeed all meet there between the North parking Deck and the waterfall, at 5:30 ... I am hoping we can picnic in that area! Jan thinks so!

    Ione -- I'll meet you at the waterfall around 5:30 PM with my dinner, unless someone has a better idea for what to do before we go in.

    UH-Oh! I just noticed that the offical description above says no picnics or coolers - I guess they want us to buy the food in the local restaurants. ANy ideas? Maybe if we meet and eat our picnic over in the ATC campus proper, near the fountain/waterfall, then walk across the street to the concert area after eating? Maybe we can get away with that!! Suggestions welcome! Or I guess we cou8ld meet and eat in one of the restaurants - - but I prefer our own food! - Ione
