bu bu bunsen

Good morning Charlotte! (or any other rando place you are) We would like to take this very brief moment to give a shout out to National Bunsen Burner day! Roots uses these all the time so we are grateful they exist.

Hey don’t forget, tomorrow is April Fool’s so you better be plotting today. I know I will. But I won’t throw any pranks at you guys. Tomorrow we will be Uptown for lunch and then running up to Davidson Day School and serving there 3pm-6pm. So if you live in the area you can swing by and grab some dinner. It’s going to be a nice sunny day, both today and tomorrow so we hope you’ll come on out and see us!

Today we’re at Free More West, from 11am-1:30pm. See you there.

It’s Friday. Shhweet.

Holler! Who’s ready for the weekend? Me. You. Let’s do this.

We’ll be in the Duke Building (4th floor) today for lunch and THEN Sycamore Brewing tonight and THEN at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden Saturday and Sunday for lunch (11am-2pm). If you’ve never been out to the garden, you should check it out this weekend since the sun will be making an appearance. And they’re having a Peter Rabbit Garden Adventure event, so if you have kids or are a kid at heart you should definitely come on out. But if you are a kid at heart, you can also enjoy mimosas. Adult bonus.

What the peep?

So some of you have probably heard about Peeps milk. If you’re a curious George type, you’ve tried it. It seems that you either love peeps or you don’t. I’m not a fan, but that doesn’t keep me from thinking up crazy ways we could incorporate this marshmallow milk phenomenon into our menu. I’m thinking a chocolate marshmallow milk infused pancake in the shape of a bunny topped with pastel tie-dye colored marshmallow creme. That’s festive right? I don’t think the chefs will go for it.

In other non-peep-related news…both trucks will be venturing out today! Uptown (across from Duke building) and Innovation Park (7201 Hewitt Associates Dr). Don’t let this gloomy weather stop you from grabbing some Trout Po Boy Sliders or Chicken Enchiladas from Roots! They’ll turn that frown upside down.

Almost forgot! Tomorrow we will be at 2 locations for lunch. One will be a new Friday spot at 2201 Water Ridge Parkway. The other is a one-time event at Providence Baptist Church. So we hope you’ll put Roots on your lunch calendar for tomorrow. Lunch calendar ha. Does anyone have one of those?
