FA MILY NIGHT! SUNDAY Because eating together is so important to the family nucleus, we're kick-starting this calendar with fried chicken served family style at Haberdish. Added bonus: Order a snack of boiled peanuts, and wax-poetic about childhood road trips before Doritos and in-car DVD players. MAC AND CHEESE MONDAY As if the smoky, crispy brunt ends weren't reason enough to visit Midwood Smokehouse, the restaurant's mac and cheese also keeps customers coming back. It might not be the Easy Mac you ate growing up, but it's still nostalgia inducing. TUESDAY Quit sneaking Nutella out of the jar when nobody's looking. Instead, take the family to Hazelnuts Creperie, where Nutella is served as it should be: slathered on a homemade crepe with bananas, strawberries or marshmallows. WEDNESDAY Enjoy a grilled cheese sandwich one of two ways at Pike's Old Fashioned Soda Shop: with a combination of American, Monterey Jack and cheddar or with homemade pimento cheese. Playing hooky? Order Wednesday's tomato bisque to complete the faux-sick day. THURSDAY Brooks' Sandwich House may top almost every Charlotte best burger list, but the fried bologna sandwich is way better than your average Lunchable. Feast on a monster- sized slice of bologna fried on the flattop and slathered with homemade chili, mustard and onions. FRIDAY Fran's Filling Station takes tater tots to a whole new level with the option of either bacon-wrapped or rosemary maple black pepper glazed tots. Can't decide? Order a duo to sample both. SATURDAY Guy Fieri had it right when he featured Pinky's Westside Grill's corndog shrimp basket on "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives." Think popcorn shrimp in corndog batter. The basket is heaping with eight large shrimp, all fried to perfection. Week 1 SWEET TREAT Remember when you could…remember your birthday? Lucky for you, Kindred in Davidson celebrates your big day all year long with chocolate birthday cake—a towering slice of cake complete with ice cream and sprinkles. Haberdish 50 WINTER 2018
