Not ones to miss a chance to throw a party, the organizers of Wine & Dine Auctions turn their events into entertaining and educational experiences. Beer and wines from local vineyards pair with steak dinners, which are prepared on charcoal grills onsite so participants can gather cooking tips from the chefs. Next, guests wander over to the auction, where they bid on exclusive, high-grade cuts of meat and other gourmet food items, with minimum bids starting at about 75% off the retail cost.

Brick columns topped with ivory triangles ascend over the Greensboro Scoop Shop's sprawling outdoor patio, a spread the eponymous Ben and Jerry could never have imagined when they slung their first scoop from a ramshackle gas station in 1978. Although renowned for flagship flavors such as Chunky Monkey and chocolate fudge brownie, Ben & Jerry's vaulted itself into the upper echelon of ice cream with playful, candy-studded concoctions named after celebrities, such as Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert, and Jerry Garcia. Velvety scoops can be reimagined as ice-cream cakes or drizzled in fudge and nuts to forge towering sundaes that patrons can chase with strawberry-cheesecake milkshakes, an ideal treat for those born with a straw proboscis.

Patrons are welcome to munch oven-toasted subs, saucy wings, and pita wraps out on the patio tables, which are shaded from the jealous stares of passing birds by umbrellas.
