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!

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.
