This year’s Winter Fling Shuck & Awe, sponsored by the Plaza Midwood Neighborhood Association (PMNA) will be held on Saturday, February 22nd from 6 PM to 11 PM. It will feature a huge all-you-can-eat oyster roast, live band, silent auction, cool door prizes, dancing, cash bar with local craft beers on hand, and a rockin’ time with your friends and neighbors.
The VanLandingham Estate has partnered with the PMNA so that guests can spread out on the property’s five-acre grounds and gardens, considered one of the most noteworthy gardens in Charlotte. There will be fire pits throughout the property to keep guests toasty, and the band The Loose Lugnuts will entertain with their extra country-fied honky-tonk tunes. The Winter Fling is held both indoors and outdoors, but assuredly, the party will be mostly outdoors so dress accordingly for the colder weather!
Admission features some of the best fresh seafood including Oysters. Past events have also served Baked Chicken, Corn on the Cob, Parsley New Potatoes, Coleslaw and more! Dinner will be served from 7 PM to 9 PM. There will be something for everyone, whether you eat seafood or not. The cash bar will feature local brewery, Birdsong Brewing Company, serving up their crafty creations, and there will also be wine and liquor available.
Though the Winter Fling was created to introduce to current, new and future Plaza Midwood residents what Plaza Midwood is all about and to encourage PMNA membership, this event is open to EVERYONE and is a great way to catch up with old friends and meet new ones.
In the spirit of the event, a highlight of the evening is always the Arts and Services Silent Auction Fundraiser for the PMNA at-large, which successfully raises money for a variety of neighborhood initiatives. So do not forget to bring your checkbooks or debit cards in order help this worthy group and to grab some exciting auction items.
Tickets are $28 online, and you are also able to pre-purchase drinks or a PMNA annual membership online. Ticket sales are limited to 400, so get your tickets now so you do not miss out on this perfect winter celebration. The VanLandingham Estate is located at 2010 The Plaza.
