We hope you’ve seen all three seasons of our award-winning culinary series, City With Bite, but if not, it’s time to catch up. Now, for the City With Bite fans (a.k.a. those who love Norfolk’s culinary scene), we have put together a gift guide for you based off of different restaurants and breweries featured in the series. From hot sauces to flannels, we hope this guide will help you check some things off your shopping list.
Gift this sauce to the chef in your family who likes to add some flavor to any dish. The ‘Not-Hot Sauce’ is made using Syd’s homegrown Tabasco that are fermented and then aged in whiskey barrels. The result is a sauce that will complement the flavors in your dish, not overpower it.
From tanks to long sleeved shirts and even flannels, Bold Mariner has apparel for everyone on your shopping list. Be sure to check out their travel mugs, beer glasses and dog bandanas for the four-legged friend in your life.
Need some dessert for a holiday party? Pick up a tasty pint of winter flavored gelato, like eggnog and brown sugar walnut.
We aren’t sure what Handsome Biscuit does to make their Lupo Sauce so addicting and tasty, but any hot sauce lover in your life will greatly appreciate this bottled-up deliciousness as a gift. Check out their Comeback Sauce too for a Southern classic!
Cookies are all well and good this time of year, but maybe switch things up with a colorful assortment of Hummingbird macs instead of the usual holiday faves. It’s less work for you, plus it’s helping to support local during the holidays. We’re even willing to bet Santa wouldn’t mind a few macs on his plate this year.
Elation Brewing and Benchtop Brewing Co. Six Packs
Who said stocking stuffers have to be small? Fill your loved ones’ stocking with a six-pack of Elation’s and Benchtop’s brews this holiday season.
Do you know someone who loves fine dining and has an appreciation for jazz? They will love tickets to one of Brothers’ Jazz concert series where they can enjoy internationally acclaimed artists with a side of surf and turf.
Never run out of coffee again. Gift the coffee lover in your life a subscription for Vessel coffee beans to enjoy at home. There’s the Vessel Subscription ($15/month) which includes a rotating selection of coffees from around the world, the One Year ‘Surprise Me’ Subscription ($300/year) for a new bag of coffee a month for an entire year, or The 757 Blend Subscription $14.40/month) for monthly shipments of the popular 757 Blend.
