South End Mural Ribbon Cutting, This Saturday!

A month and a half ago, work began on a mural on the side of our South End location and now it is complete! We couldn't be happier with the result! A huge thank you goes out to the children from Parker Autism's Camp Dakota, St. Patrick's Boy Scout Troop 9 and all of the other children and adults from the community and employees who contributed to what has been named "Charlotte's Road to a Healthy Home." We are excited to officially cut the ribbon on the finished piece of art and we would like to invite everyone out this Saturday to celebrate the completion! As the theme behind the mural is eating and supporting local, we will have local vendors here offering free food samples, including KW Collards, Bushelle Seasonings, Sadie's Caribbean Fish Cakes, Villa Antonio, Roots Hummus, and Penny's Pimento Cheese. Plus, Olde Mecklenburg Brewery will be here conducting a free beer tasting and everyone will get a slice of local watermelon! Greenfield Farms has generously donated their local, grass-fed beef for us to grill out and we will be offering burger (veggies burgers will be available) plates with natural chips and natural sodas, for only $4.99. $2.49 of every plate sold will be donated to the Parker Autism Foundation. We will have face painting and free balloons for the kids! Plus, Charlotte Energy Solutions will be here with Segways and foldable bikes for everyone to try. And what celebration would be complete without live music? Chris Kollman will be here setting the mood. While you're here, enter our "Name That Pig" contest. The winner will receive a gift basket worth $200! See you all Saturday!
