Introducing the TerraVITA Small Plate Crawl

The TerraVITA Food & Wine Event began four years ago in Chapel Hill out of a desire to produce a top-quality event in the South, showcasing the very best in food and drink.  TerraVITA has earned its reputation as one of the best food and beverage events in the Southeast because those standards have been central to our selection of participants.  

As a way to involve more local restaurants, TerraVITA is introducing the TerraVITA Small Plate Crawl on the weekend of Friday, October 4 - Sunday, October 6 (the weekend before the TerraVITA Food & Wine Event) to take place in restaurants and bars in downtown Chapel Hill and Carrboro!

Enjoy a 100% locally sourced small plate or cocktail  at one of the TerraVITA Small Plate Crawl participating restaurants and get a fabulous taste of local North Carolina food & drink.

As an added bonus we've partnered with The Siena Hotel and the person who enjoys a meal or drink at the most venues will win a free night's stay at the beautiful Siena Hotel on Franklin Street!

Simply tweet a picture of yourself enjoying your dish or drink at each venue with the hashtag #SmallPlateCrawl.  Be sure to include where you are in each tweet!  In the event of a tie a winner will be drawn at random from the top finishers.  Remember, if you're an Instagram user, be sure to send the picture to Twitter with the #SmallPlateCrawl tag.  The winner will be contacted via Twitter to claim their prize.

Inspired by the beauty of Italy, The Siena Hotel, located in beautiful Chapel Hill North Carolina, adds its distinctive European character to the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill, NC area. A AAA Four Diamond hotel and restaurant recipient since 1987, travelers that step through the doors of this elegant Tuscan villa discover a luxurious décor with hand-selected European antiques, Italian marble floors and majestic columns, against a backdrop of rich colors and fabrics.
