Mark your calendar, gluten-free friends! It is worth the ride to the Crossville Road Outback in Roswell, Georgia, on Tuesday June 15 from 4 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.
That's the second birthday of the Gluten-Free Bloomin' Onion! Can you believe it? I can't. It was just yesterday when I was writing about that first birthday...
When I saw Julie Arens, who with former proprietor Tom Propp was the visionary behind this spectacular dedicated GF treat, Saturday night, she said Outback will be having a very special day-long party to celebrate the birthday of this delectable treat! It's a tribute to the fact that people come to this Outback from all over the country because of the dedicated fryer and gluten-free goodies. (I am especially partial to the Bloomin' Onion, but I also love the coconut shrimp...)
There will be some cool surprises for all you gluten-free diners -- but you'll have to be there to find out what they are!
My first visit to the Outback in Roswell, I wrote this blog post about this wonderful treat and all the things this Outback is offering. I rarely make a visit to Atlanta that I don't go to this Outback and have a safe gluten-free meal, including the Bloomin' Onion.
And I am not alone. Julie says that one in every four tickets at the Crossville Road Outback involves a gluten-free order. Can you IMAGINE? It's just a dream come true!
The new proprietor, Jenn Obrofta, wants to continue this wonderful service to the gluten-free community. For than, I know we're all grateful. Let's show her how grateful we are and show up for this special birthday party! Pack the house, baby. Pack the house!
