||Hot clam chowder on a cool fall afternoon sounds like the Ninth Annual ChowdaFest! Serving up four kinds of chowder on Saturday, November 12, ChowdaFest takes place on the Riverview Patio at Fat Tonys Italian Pub, 131 N. Front Street in downtown Wilmington. Enjoy New England, Manhattan, and Down East varieties, plus our very own Roasted Poblano Chicken Corn Chowder. A $5 admission charge includes one cup of your choice, and others may be purchased. No festival is complete without music, and this year BAG OF TOYS will perform at 12:00pm, and NoSeRiDeRs will perform at 3:00pm. A portion of proceeds will benefit CAPE FEAR LITERACY COUNCIL. See you there!
