Buzz: Pink Day detours to Riverside Parkway this Friday. Cartersville’s new Chick-fil-A due later this month. Rome Little Theatre’s performances of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ open Friday, Oct. 5 at the DeSoto Theatre.
Temporary switch for Floyd’s Pink Day this Friday: For years, Floyd Medical Center’sPink Day — part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month — has been based at Chick-fil-A Dwarf House on Shorter Avenue. As work continues to transform it into Truett’s Chick-fil-A, opening late fall, Floyd has followed customers to the Riverside Parkway “container” location. Pink Day is this Friday from 6 until 9 a.m. The “paper doll magnets” will be available as well.
Cartersville’s new Chick-fil-A almost ready: The Riverside Parkway location has been a relief for Rome’s Chick-fil-A fans (as has been the Mount Berry Mall location). In Cartersville, as that restaurant near Main Street Shopping Center went through the “scrape-and-build” process, CFA fans have been frequenting an “Express” location since work began there. The Express is a highly modified trailer selling favorites cooked at the Emerson/LakePoint location. So what’s new? “Grand Opening is right around the corner so Saturday, September 29, will be the last day for Chick-fil-A Express. Thank you to all who visited while we were closed.” So when is the big return? We’ve got a note into the store for updates; the cows are telling us around mid-October.
Rome Little Theatre’s performances of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ open Friday, Oct. 5 at the DeSoto Theatre and continue on weekends through Sunday, Oct. 14.
