FA MILY NIGHT! Week 4 SUNDAY Start your Sunday off right with a sugar coma from Fahrenheit's Jumbo Cap'N Crunch Pancakes—a stack of fluffy pancakes drowned in a sweet vanilla reduction milk and spilling over with Crunch Berries. MAC AND CHEESE MONDAY Have you ever wondered what mac and cheese would taste like on a grilled cheese sandwich? Yeah, us, too. Well wonder no more with Papi Queso's (Charlotte's grilled cheese food truck) Mac Melt. TUESDAY What doesn't warm the cockles of your stomach more than an open-faced meatloaf sandwich? They're on special Tuesday's at Lebowski's Neighborhood Grill. Follow them with a helping of sweet potato tots served with a cinnamon, marshmallow and mascarpone dipping sauce for dessert. WEDNESDAY Gather the family at one of Libretto's Pizzeria's four area locations for an authentic Grandma-style pizza, served on thick square crust and loaded with your family's favorite toppings. THURSDAY Everything is homemade at Tavern on the Tracks, including their hand-breaded chicken tenders. Try them tossed in the house Gold Rush sauce—sweet, spicy and one of a kind! FRIDAY "On top of homemade gnocchi, all covered in cheese, sits a smoky meatball, that I can't wait to eat." Yeah, it's happening at the String Bean in Belmont. SATURDAY And last, but not least, brussels sprouts! Seriously, though. If mom's were as good as the brussels sprouts from Soul Gastrolounge—fried with brown butter, bacon and balsamic—we definitely would have eaten our veggies. SWEET TREAT The Marshmallow Crispy Treat milkshake at Cowfish will have you snap, crackle and popping to this vanilla bean ice cream-based milkshake blended with Rice Krispies and mallow cream.
