Cary, NC — Sure, it’s Super Bowl weekend, but comedy, art, and a steaming bowl of chili all await you too, as well as some great shows in the Triangle area. Check the calendar and make your plans now.

Help the Cary Rotary Club stop hunger by dropping in on their annual Chili Dinner during lunch or dinner hours on Friday. The event, held at Kirk of Kildaire Presbyterian, provides attendees with a delicious meal for only $7.50–and it supports a great cause.
It’s cold, yes, but it’s also the last Friday of the month, which means that Cary’s Final Friday Art Loop is back. This month, there will be a reception and meet-and-greet with featured artists Donna Schultz and Jean Scholz.
Fridays are WineAway Fridays at Chatham Hill Winery and event venue. Live music starts at 7 pm and continues until 10. Wine is available by the glass or bottle and two local brews from Fortnight will be on tap. Attendees can order food in from local restaurants or try the winery’s international cheeses.
