The summer cookout event scheduled for July 9 at Básico with Jacques Larson has been canceled in order to support the food and beverage community’s fundraising dinner being held that night. We encourage everyone to purchase tickets to the A Community United event (

Basico’s poolside event has been retooled and rescheduled for Aug. 13. Chef Bryan Cates has invited three local chefs to come hang out poolside at Mixson Bath & Racquet Club and cook up the ultimate summer feast.

On Thursday, Aug. 13, Cates, Chef Russ Moore of Slightly North of Broad, Jacques Larson of the Obstinate Daughter and Wild Olive, and Graham Dailey of Peninsula Grill will set up a couple of grills outside and prepare appetizers, entrees, and desserts. “It will be super casual,” says Cates. “We’ll have stations set up and we’ll present the food in stages. Each course will have a local, seasonal grilled component.”

Twisted Cypress Brewing, a new local microbrewery, will provide the brews for this dinner series.

A portion of the ticket to the dinner series will benefit Metanoia’s youth leadership program, which identifies at-risk youth with leadership potential and teaches them the skills necessary to succeed. For more information visit
