It’s a light day for the Daily Deac, as I just returned from the Miami area for a New Student Reception. We had a great group of both incoming students and parents, and some current students as well. Many thanks to all who attended, as well as to our gracious hosts, the Jimenez family.
I was fortunate enough to be spirited to many of the sights of Miami, not the least of which was being around the Brickell area during the World Cup games with Brazil and Colombia. To say there was revelry in the streets would be an understatement. It looked like the happiest party block(s) in an already happening town.
Also got to sample some of the local delicacies, and my gracious hosts made sure I got to taste and try a lot of food, especially some fantastic authentic Cuban fare. A demitasse of Cuban coffee is inked in my memory as a great delight.
Which made me think about this – for students (and their families) who come to Wake from some distance, what are the ‘local delicacies’ that they enjoy and associate with Winst0n-Salem or NC in general?
Is it sweet tea?
Moravian chicken pie?
I’m from a Phili suburb, so the culinary delight of home (and what you can’t get here, sadly) is the cheesesteak. But what is Winston-Salem or NC food to you?
Send your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d love to know.
And Gracias to the good Deacs of the Miami area. What fun it was to meet everyone!
