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.
