Featuring Dinner at Chef and The Farmer!

You’ve watched Chef Vivian Howard on the PBS show A Chef’s Life. You’ve heard about her world-famous restaurant, the Chef and the Farmer, a center point for a revitalized downtown Kinston with interesting galleries, stores, and pubs to visit.
Join the NCModernist crew as we travel to Kinston on our air-conditioned, wifi-equipped luxury bus! You’ll experience great food and the fun company of fellow Modernist travelers interested in art, architecture, and a wonderful dinner at the famed Chef and the Farmer.
Drop the kids with the sitter and get out for date night!
Once we arrive in Kinston, we’ll drop you right outside the Mother Earth Lodge, the beginning of your exploration of the newly created Kinston Arts District.
