What’s his real name?

Did you know it’s Mr. T’s birthday? Good thing I listen to quality radio on the way to work that keeps me informed of these important details of the day. (Another important detail is that we will NOT be in the Duke building tomorrow. Sorry if I got your hopes up!)

We’ve got a full day ahead of us folks! Lunch at Innovation Park (7201 Hewitt Associates Dr) and then tonight we will be at BOTH Birdsong and Sycamore from 5p-9p. Birdsong will be releasing their small batch called “Susie Q”, a smoked IPA. And there will be live music going on at Sycamore. So be sure to hit one of them up…or both. Don’t be a fool or we may pity you.

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.

Bev it up!

It’s National Beverage Day! Just wanted to keep you in the know, so you have some small talk content while hydrating at the water cooler at work. Or you can talk about how it’s Taco Day uptown and discuss what tacos you’re going to savor today. Did you know you can get your tacos served over greens instead of in tortillas? Just ask!

Another important piece of knowledge is that we’ll also be in our Uptown spot tomorrow! Innovation Park will be happening too. AND Birdsong Brewing for supper time. Stay tuned for those menus later on. And we’d be thrilled to see your face today…and tomorrow.

Camp Food vs Roots

Roots wins all day erryday. After a few days on the trails, grubbin’ on dehydrated meals, bars, and oatmeal, I am so ready for some Roots tacos! Aren’t you?? Got some great ones on the menu today. We’ll be Uptown across from the Duke building. It’s pretty Springy outside too, so it’s a great day to take a little walk.

We will not be at Innovation Park tomorrow due to a private event, but you all can catch us at Birdsong Brewing for Thursty Thursday tomorrow night! If you haven’t been to their new location yet, definitely check it out this week. It’s a great post-work spot to unwind, catch up with your buddies, or make some new ones.
