Oink if you love wine

Look for the big pig cooker and follow the aromas to Wine Authorities in Durham, N.C. for Pork & Pinot Day on Saturday, Jan. 30, noon to 4 p.m.. Coon Rock Farm will offer its pasture-raised pork, Guglhupf Bakery is providing the buns and Wine Authorities will have a selection of Pinots.

The groups are requesting a donation of $5 per sandwich (with wine). All the money raised will go to the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina. No matter what terrible disasters go on around the world, local needs persist, and the Food Bank is serving more people than ever because of the economic downturn.
