Cheers to Txotx! by Amanda MacLaren 1 Melanie Small and Greg DeKoenigsberg. 2 Christy Brooks and Jeff Gordon. 3 Oval Park Grille General Manager Dominic DeCastro and Chef Todd Whitney.
Black Twig Cider House hosted TxotxFest (choach-fest), the first cider celebration in the Southeast, alongside other East Coast cider houses – Washington, D.C.’s ANXO and NYC’s Wassail among them. Cider producers in attendance included Bull City Ciderworks, Noble Cider, Bold Rock, Urban Orchard and Foggy Ridge Cider. Local names like Watts Grocery, Oval Park Grille, PICNIC, Durham Catering Co. and Rise provided food samples, and Black Twig served a whole, de-boned sausagestuffed local pig from Firsthand Foods. The event benefited Durham-based nonprofit Inspire MEdia Network, an organization that shares inspiring stories – and makes them happen.
