Interesting Events – PB&J Sandwiches, PurrCussion, Hope Vibes & Moreby Porter Metzler on March 5, 2020
Whatcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna do when CLT events come for you? We’ve got 12 events coming in hot to the Queen City that we’re interested in and think you will be, too. There’s plenty on tap for the next week, so let’s dive in below. Speaking of “on tap,” we’ll start things off with a beer release that is our jam… or should we say jelly?
Peanut Butter & Jelly is our Jam
PB&J Eating Contest and “Peanut Butter Jelly Time” Beer Release
March 7 at 3pm
Catawba Brewing Company
It’s peanut butter jelly time! Well… it’s more like this weekend is peanut butter jelly time. Catawba Brewing Company is celebrating the annual release of their Charlotte-favorite “Peanut Butter Jelly Time” beer with a PB&J sandwich eating contest this Saturday, March 7 at 3pm. Registration for the contest is over but you can still head to Catawba Brewing to cheer on the participating sandwich gladiators as they devour PB&Js at breakneck speeds.
After the contest, stick around to enjoy some liquid PB&Js of the 21+ variety. This year, Catawba’s “PB&J sandwich in a glass” comes in four flavors: the OG Raspberry and Strawberry-Rhubarb return and Peach and Red Currant make their grand debuts. PB&Js, friendly competition and a few beers shared with friends… it doesn’t get much better than that. For more information on the PB&J eating contest, click here.
Side Note: You can get Catawba’s “Peanut Butter Jelly Time” starting Friday, March 6 at noon, an entire day before their PB&J Sandwich Super Bowl. For more information on the “Peanut Butter Jelly Time” release, click here.
