NoDa Company Store, 3221 Yadkin Avenue, might be NoDa’s best hangout. There’s ample seating, they sell food and drink, much of it local, host food trucks, and mix up some really good Sangria. They also frequently host events, many free.
Many of you know about their free lunches on Sundays. During football season they’ve shifted to Monday dinner.
Since the start of football season, Joey and Scott have been cooking up a FREE dinner for friends and neighbors, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. It’s something different every week, but will always be meatless, sometimes vegan.
You can expect flavors from around the world.
And, yes, it’s totally free! No catches. Because they are great friends and neighbors. But you should be a good friend and neighbor too, and buy a drink or leave a tip. (This is a personal request from Charlotte on the Cheap!)
If you’re curious about what the meal will be, or you want to confirm that it’s definitely taking place (it might not if something else is going on, like Monday Night Football), check their Facebook page.
A lot of times they’ll do a Facebook live video to show what they’re going to be serving up.
It doesn’t appear to be happening Monday, January 13th. Stay tuned.
Also, follow their Facebook page to see what else is going on. That’s the best way to stay informed.
