Hungry or thirsty?

Get yourself out to Birdsong Brewing tonight! It’s Thursty Thursday and their small batch they’re tapping tonight is C.R.E.A.M…a coconut cream ale with vanilla bean and fresh spearmint. Yum. Can’t wait to try that deliciousness. I’ll probably pair it with our Veggie Burger and some Dueling Hummus. So maybe it’s not an official pairing, but I bet it will still be perfect.

Three’s Company

Third wheel. 3 legged race. Triple run. 3 strikes. Three seems to be our new theme for Thursday, as we’ll be at 3 spots now! Innovation Park and Uptown (across from Duke building, same place as Wed) for lunch and then Birdsong Brewing for din din. Hopefully one of those spots works for you! It’s Thursty Thursday at Birdsong which means they tap a new small batch every week, and tonight is a roasted carrot saison named “Cecilia”. Sounds like dinner in a cup to me. Okay maybe an appetizer because I’ll still want real food from Roots. AND they have live music tonight, so plan to stop by after work and be chillin’ like a villain.

With the weather being all warm and sunshiny, I can tell a lot of you are thinking about that birthday party, family reunion, or corporate event you’re heading up. Invite us. We heart parties. Let us help you! Interested in booking the food truck? Here’s some more deets, and email andrea@rootsfarmfood.com to inquire about your event.

Batter batter swing!

Today is National Take a Chance Day, so I say why not come out to the truck and do just that. Have you been to a Charlotte Knights game yet this season? Always a good time.

We’re at Innovation Park (university area) today for lunch, then off to Birdsong Brewing tonight, 5pm-9pm. It’s Thursty Thursday y’all! There will be live music, a free brewery tour at 6:30pm, and they’ll be tapping their “Babalu” IPA. Sounds like something out of the Jungle Book or Lion King. Awesome.

Looking ahead to Friday, we’ll be inside the Duke building for lunch (4th floor). You’re also invited to get a complimentary Roots taco lunch at Fifth Third Bank in Concord (871 Church Street North), from 11:30am-1:30pm. Come on out, you know the trek is worth it!

You’re Thursty!

We’re getting ready for a warm night out at Birdsong Brewing tonight. Remember, they moved here. Come out for Thursty Thursday, get a cold one and some Roots food to pair with it. I’m thinking the Jalapeno Ale and our Sriracha Mac Bites…if you like some spice. I know a lot of you do. Or try our new Striped Bass Taco before we run out.

Tomorrow is Friday, woop woop! Do your pre-Friday dance please. We will be serving lunch inside the Duke building on the 4th floor and then out at Sycamore Brewing for dinner.

For tonight, here’s what’s for dinner. I know, it’s a tough decision. Just get one of everything and share with your posse.
