Inspired by our feature story on oyster cultivation, we gathered at the home of Dr. Catherine Everett and Mr. Joe Goins in New Bern to celebrate North Carolina's favorite bivalve with a traditional Eastern North Carolina oyster roast on December 12th. Oysters were generously provided and roasted by B&J Seafood of New Bern, accoutrements by Boiler Room Oyster Bar of Kinston, libations by Mother Earth Brewing of Kinston, Broadslab Distillery of Benson and Minges Bottling Group of Ayden. We ate, danced and sang all afternoon with the help of Merchants Road Band of New Bern. Thank you to our fantastic hosts, all of our generous sponsors and guests who helped us celebrate the oyster and finish our Kickstarter campaign strong!
It takes courage, verve and savvy to start a business. It takes even more to make it last. Bit & Grain knows that as well as anyone, and on the final Thursday in August, we toasted NC female entrepreneurs who are hustlin’ to make their dreams come true. The Old North Hustle event celebrated the women featured in the story. Over sangria and tacos and through conversation and a panel in the funky, fantastic, hip space that is Edge of Urge, we discussed what it takes to dive in head first in pursuit of our business dreams. We couldn’t have done it without or sponsors at Wine Authorities, Move Loot and El Taco Cartel. Here’s to the hustle.
