Freddy's Frozen Custard and Steakburgers, out in the Epps Bridge area next to McDonald's, is offering single-scoop cones and dishes of its vanilla and chocolate "custard" (i.e. ice cream) today. Half of that dollar will go to benefit either Kids in Need Foundation (which distributes school supplies to kids who need them) or Playworks (which provides full-time recess coaches to schools). You can vote for the charity you prefer by texting the word "kids" for Kids in Need or the word "recess" for Playworks to 72727.

The Pine, in Five Points, is adding a downstairs bar called The Root, which will open in August. Co-owner Scott Parrish said it will be open seven days a week, until midnight Sunday–Wednesday and until 1 a.m. Thursday–Saturday. Unlike the upstairs, it won't serve food, but it will have "a tap and can list, a handful of wines and craft cocktails and a sizable whiskey selection," said Parrish.

Every Tuesday this summer, The Foundry (previously known as The Melting Point, which you probably still call it if you are an Athenian of long standing, habituated to referring to places by their previous names) is offering a pretty good deal for a date night.
Further fleshing out the ground floor of the Georgia Heights building at Broad and Hull streets downtown, a location of the small franchise Cinnaholic will be opening soon. Promising 100 percent vegan gourmet cinnamon rolls, customizable with a wide variety of toppings, it seems like the counterpart to Zombie Donuts, on the other side of College, pumping out the scent of sugar into the already complex bouquet of downtown's fragrance.

After a brief period as a near food-desert, the new Epps Bridge shopping wonderland has been adding eating options aplenty. Just to the left of Groove Burgers, Wok's Up will open in August and is currently hiring for all positions.
If you've been stuck at the light at Gaines School and Cedar Shoals, you may have noticed a sign that popped up in the old Charlie Nobles space in the Ansonborough development. Craft Public House plans to open there later this month, the project of chef/owner Brandon Kelly and owner/GM Rob Longstreet. Craft is a gastropub, which is certainly something new for the Eastside.

The only appropriate reaction to the news that Paul's Bar-B-Q, in Lexington, served its last meal this Fourth of July is, "Aw, dang."
If you've noticed some activity in the former Suska space in the Henrietta Building on Lumpkin Street in Five Points, that's because it'll soon house a Chinese restaurant: Donna Chang's. But wait, it's no chop suey joint.

After a brief period where the space that previously housed Piccolo's was closed (see previously here), in a Watkinsville shopping center on Hog Mountain Road (by Bell's), it reopened rapidly, under new ownership, as Bella Noche. The new place calls itself an Italian/Latin restaurant, but the Italian part of the menu is considerably larger.

Taqueria La Parrilla has come a long way from its quiet beginnings in the Homewood Hills Shopping Center, with a location on Athens' Eastside and one in Watkinsville, in addition to the original.
