I'm shopping for a Mexican dinner to be held on Sunday, and could use some pointers as to where best to look for a few things. I will need to pick these up either late this afternoon (after 6:00), first thing Saturday morning (before 10:00), late Saturday afternoon (after 5:00), or anytime Sunday before 6:00. I'd strongly prefer to stick to Durham. If some of these should be available at any old Food Lion, or such, please pardon my ignorance and tell me so.
fresh epazote leaves
dried pasilla chiles
a whole, cleaned and scaled fish - snapper, grouper, striped bass or such
And, where does one look for bar supplies like a muddler, extra-fine (super-fine?) sugar, bitters, vermouth? (Can you get vermouth in a small bottle?)
