Here's how it works:

Purchase a ticket for $100, and you are entered into the drawing.  Only 325 tickets will be sold.  Once they're gone...they're gone.  Don't delay.

Each ticket number has a corresponding ball in the squirrel cage.  The balls are spun and pulled, spun and pulled, etc.  The last ball to be selected is the winner of the Grand Prize of $10,000.

You don't have to be present to win, but you can't win if you don't have a ticket.  You can buy as many tickets as you want; no limit.

Each ticket admits two adults to the "best party of the summer," featuring a buffet dinner, open bar, silent auction, entertainment, fun and games...and a free cab ride home afterward (anywhere in Carteret County).

There are no refunds on ticket sales.

Blues Brothers Fabulous Rhythm & Blues Review

August 19, 2017 | 7:00 pm-9:30 pm

The Infusion Cafe proudly presents a free-wheeling, smash-'em-up evening of blues and rock-n- roll comedy like only Jake and Elwood can bring home.

Jake and Elwood Blues (Kurt Petersen and Dave Springle) are getting "The Band" back together (Tim Raynor, Gabe Raynor & Phil Routzsong) to wow you and to save the day... and they can't lose, after all, they're on a "mission from God"!

Featuring a "fabulous rhythm and blues review" of music from the 1980 movie- funky, late '70s at its best; served up with three courses of Blues Brothers tribute fare (that's a full three course meal that even Aretha, owner of The Soul Food Cafe, would be pleased to serve. Mmmmm. Just "Think about it!" "Best d*** chicken in the state.")

If you're a fan of toe-tapping, knee-slapping, tail-shaking, four fried chickens and a coke; this is a dinner theatre experience you don't want to to miss!

Country Cool

August 26, 2017 | 8:00 pm-10:00 pm

COUNTRY COOL is a straight-shootin’, no-holds-barred comedy show that laughs at what we’re all dealin’ with…the “this can’t really be happening” moments in life that make us feel like we’re losing our minds, one traffic jam at a time. Trish Suhr, Karen Mills and Leanne Morgan, all headlining comedians, have southern roots but are well-traveled, diverse, razor sharp and savvy. Their no-nonsense approach “tells it like it is” but, of course, with charm and style.  It’s not redneck; it’s not white trash -- these girls are country cool!  It’s comedy for the masses, because, let’s face it, everybody’s got a little country in ‘em. These three women have been friends for more than a decade and have stood in it, walked through it and come out the other side laughing. Whether it’s overcoming cancer, the loss of a beloved pet or talking each other down from the hormonal ledge, they continue to find the humor in everything life dishes out.  Read more about these Country Cool Women.
