Bits and BYOB

Upstream hosts a BYOB dinner Feb. 22; bring your own bottles and get a five-course meal for $65 (and a reception with sparkling wine starts at 6:30 p.m.). Among the courses: Fanny Bay oysters and Hawaiian big eye tuna with white soy gelee; duo of foie gras; pan-roasted sea bass and plum wine-glazed pork belly; and more. Phillips Place; 704-556-7730.

The King's Bakery is expanding to increase production, which means it's moving its sales business into The King's Kitchen (129 W. Trade St.). That means if you want to buy its breakfast pastries, coffee, lunch sandwiches or retail bread, you'll now go to the next-door King's Kitchen -- which is extending its hours accordingly, and offering breakfast items to go 7 a.m.-2:30 p.m. weekdays.
