Knightdale Chamber Business After Hours

Great Knightdale Business After Hours event the other night at Michael Blake’s Garden Center and Gift Shop!  Up until Thursday Dec 15, I had never been there before.  I kept hearing and seeing things about what a great place to visit it was. I was thinking how fancy can some shovels and wheelbarrows and all that be??  Well, I was pleasantly surprised to see their gift shop chock FULL of all sorts of interesting items.  Truly a full gift shop.  Saw some great things there – might need to do some shopping for Christmas still and this might be where some of it takes place LOL.  And yes, they DID actually have garden stuff there too, but just all sorts of things if you’re looking for some last minute gift items!

ALSO saw some of my favorite stuff – Lizard Lick Bar-B-Q sauce – obviously a near and dear to my heart product from Tom Price & the whole Lizard Lick Krew over at Lizard Lick Towing.  You can buy the sauce directly from Michael Blake’s Gift Shop or if you’re a little further away, you can grab it from Tom over at and have it shipped out by the case.  You really never can have enough barbecue sauce!

And what a treat it was to grab some delicious catered sandwiches and think to myself – “Man, these are good!  Who did the catering tonight?”  And then to discover it’s another one of our clients, Kurt Jones and his Knightdale Catering by Rudino’s team that conjured up the delicious sandwiches.  If only I wasn’t trying to watch all the calories this holiday season, I would have had a few more delicious grinders.  Been trying to take it a bit easy THIS Christmas after popping on about 10 pounds last year at Christmas time. Last year though I think it was actually due more to, “But eggnog only comes out once a year. Surely drinking this whole carton won’t be a big problem…” Love that stuff.  But great grinders/subs and tasty desserts from Rudino’s Catering.

Thanks to Jennifer Bryan over at the Knightdale Chamber of Commerce and all those who attended for setting up a truly great event!
