Get ready to kick it the last days of summer with Cypress Street, SweetWater brew, grub, and good times!
Even though I am heading to Charlotte, NC, to explore what I hear is a great city, I couldn’t leave Atlanta without letting you know what’s going on this weekend in my hometown. For starters, one of my favorite spots, Cypress Street, is throwing down with their 7th Annual End of Summer Pig Roast on Saturday, August 30, 2014 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. And for you collectors, there's a special limited edition SweetWater/Cypress Street pint glass for ya!
Below is the official info, but just know that whenever Cypress does something, it’s a good effin’ time! Even if you don't eat swine, their menu is pretty much flawless. I am a big fan of the Chicken Quinoa Wrap, wings, and cheesesteak to name a few. Plus, they just brought my homey Executive Chef Matt Deckard on board, and fresh grilled salmon is now on the menu on Fridays and Saturdays! It doesn't hurt that Cypress has one of the best patios in the city, plus their addition of two more washrooms makes constant imbibing that much more convenient. Ha!
Last, just know that while you kick it hard in the A, I will have an extra dope and informative food and drink guide to the city of Charlotte for ya when I get done Cruisin’ For A Brewsin’ this weekend. Fair trade?
Be safe and enjoy this weekend! Look for my Tweets throughout the weekend at @alesharpton and Instagram @realalesharpton regarding other things going on in ATL along with what I have popping off in Charlotte.
