This Saturday is a Grand time for a Tasting

With the weekend in clear and plain sight, many use the days of Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (and perhaps are considering an early exit for Thursday) to partake of a range of activities. Be it more individual based, family based, or some good old fashioned, much needed, and well earned rest and relaxation, looking forward to the weekend can clearly be a good thing.

This Saturday, February 22nd, between the hours of 12-4pm, the immediate and surrounding community is invited to partake of an event which incorporates the aforementioned elements, be it individual or family, as well as becoming more ingrained and a part of the community instead of apart from it. In fact, it may provide a taste of something beyond delicious and satisfying.

Some would consider it a taste of paradise.

In fact, it is A Taste of Paradise Restaurant and Event Hall (located in Lilburn), as they are having their official grand opening. Located at 4805 Lawrenceville Highway NW (Suite 300) in Lilburn, the fine Jamaican-cuisine based restaurant's event promises to be a sound event that is family and community themed.

"We are looking forward to being a resource and fixture in the Lilburn (and immediate) community", notes Nicola McIntyre, part of the family-based ownership team of the facility (and a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.).

Patrons are able to enjoy family-themed events including games and activities (for children), giveaways, door-prizes, and other related specials, as well as be a part of their special ribbon cutting ceremony (at 12:30pm), featuring local government and community officials. Combined with the food-tastings featuring their tantalizing Jamaican-based cuisine, the grand opening is certain to appeal to all age groups.

Another feature of the event is the community marketplace. Hosted in the restaurant's event hall, multiple community organizations and other vendors are able to showcase the products and services provided in serving multiple segments of the community, truly making it a community-themed event. Combined with the launch of their own "March On" canned food drive, the restaurant (during the entire month of March) is collecting canned food with the goal of conducting two (2) deliveries to support area food and soup kitchens.

For information regarding this Saturday's kickoff, readers are encouraged to contact the restaurant (and their highly professional and friendly staff) by phone (at 770-806-4140) or email (atasteofparadiselilburn@gmail.com). The restaurant's social media platforms on Facebook (A Taste of Paradise) and Twitter (Twitter handle is @ATOPLilburn) provide additional information.

Just in time for Saturday lunch or Saturday dinner, kick off support for the community, families, and some outstanding Jamaican-based cuisine at an event that is open to the general public.

Paradise indeed; that clearly sounds like an grand time and taste of something good!
