Every Friday Roots in Alpharetta features an article on food and dining in a series called Foodie Friday.
We don’t post events often on this blog. But if there’s something unique about the event or we have commentary to offer then by all means we’ll promote. This month two upcoming foodie events in Roswell are worth your attention.
The first is Miss Mary’s Ice Cream Crankin’. This is a homemade ice cream festival that offers unlimited tastings for only six bucks. There’s some outstanding ice cream to be enjoyed. It all benefits The Drake House, a charity that offers transitional housing to homeless women and their families. Last year in this article I wrote in more detail about this terrific charity. If you’re not familiar with their work then I encourage you to take a few minutes to learn more.
The event will be held on Sunday August 25th from 2:00 – 4:00 at the Roswell Square. I’d get there right at 2:00 if I were you. More information can be found at www.missmarysicecream.org.
Next is an event put on by Roswell Next called Town Hall Roswell – Dining Out. The event will feature a panel discussion hosted by several of Roswell’s celebrated restauranteurs. Among those speaking will be Ryan Pernice (Table & Main), Hicham Anzari (Salt Factory, Little Alley Steak and Opulent) and Rich Clark (Hugo’s Oyster Bar and C&S Seafood). These guys helped shape the face of OTP dining so bring your best questions!
It takes place on Thursday August 22nd from 7:00 – 9:00 at the Roswell Historic Cottage. Cost is $15 for non-members or bring a food donation. Look for more details on the event’s webpage or RSVP on Facebook.
