Free Coldness Today!

That’s right hot folks! We’re giving away freeze pops today at lunch to help combat the heat. Where I grew up they were Otter Pops, so if you know what I’m talking about you’ll get a high five today. Come see us across from the Duke building, we’ll be ready with tacos and coldness for you.

Looking ahead to the next couple of days for lunch, we’ll be back uptown tomorrow (same spot) and then inside the Duke building (4th floor) on Friday.

Cold Turkey Thursday

Hi Charlottean friends! Yesterday was a fun and busy taco day, hope you enjoyed! We’re right back at the same spot uptown today, but we switched up the menu. Don’t want to spoil you by giving you tacos 2 days in a row.

Tonight is Thursty Thursday at Birdsong Brewing, so we’ll be there to fill your tummy with food to go with that delicious beer. That menu will be posted later, but I heard something about smoked wings and nachos, so get ready to rumble.

Newsflash! Tomorrow we will be serving lunch at a NEW spot, every other Friday. Right outside of One Day Surgery (1001 Blythe Blvd) from 11am-2pm. So plan on swinging by and treat yourself to a Friday lunch at Roots. And then a Friday dinner at Sycamore brewing…we’ll be there also. The Sycamore menu will be off the chain! Do people still say that? Craig’s on his way right now to Rowland’s Row farm to pick up some heirloom tomatoes, heirloom cucumbers, and banana peppers. He’s got something amazing planned, so check back tomorrow.

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.
