Each evening’s tasting menu will be paired with top notch NC micro-brews, fine super-premium wines, and wickedly expensive spirits. Soulful, live music allow the decadent festivities to continue into the night…

Dr. Brownstone’s Sweet Summer Luv Luv Festival began as a way for Chef Timothy Grandinetti, aka Dr. Brownstone, to stay connected with former chefs, colleagues, and artisan producers throughout his culinary career. “The magnificence of “5 Days of Deliciousness” is based upon the special bond of brotherhood, friendship, and respect that has evolved over the years while working in action-packed kitchen environments.” said Chef Grandinetti. “This is our way of gathering together, sharing the love, sharing the magic of fire and smoke! …and the delicious foods that result!”
