It's Just a Southern Thing

Chef T. J. Hicks will show off his stuff at a pop-up event at Gallery 5.

Pop-ups are a low-stakes way to get into the restaurant game, and for diners, it’s almost always a win/win. Chefs are out to impress and ticket holders are usually discerning eaters.

The latest is called A Southern Thing and will focus on all the things we have around here that we love the most. RVA Pop-Up Kitchens chef Gerald “T.J.” Hicks — executive sous chef at McCormack's Big Whisky Grill and previously of Lemaire and Six Burner — will offer a four-course dinner, plus paired wines from the Charlottesville area at Gallery 5. He’ll whip up some chilled sweet corn consommé, sorghum molasses-glazed barbecued spiced pork belly and other riffs on Southern classics.

At the same time, visual artist Austin Fitch will open his show, "Pop Patriot," at the gallery and Donny Ray Perry will provide a little live music. Part of the proceeds will benefit FeedMore.

The food, wine, art and music will all happen on June 18 from 7 to 11p.m. Sound like something you might like to do? You’d better hop to it. Tickets are limited to 50, and the cost is $55. Follow this link for ticket information and more details.
