Martin Luther King Jr. was undoubtedly one of the biggest influences in history. He’s recognized as the most visible leader and spokesperson during the civil rights movement. Considering he was born in Atlanta, he holds a special place in our hearts. This year, MLK Day falls on King’s actual birthday, January 15th. To celebrate, Freight is hosting a special brunch in Downtown Woodstock, GA. Our guests are always asking for breakfast food during the week, so this Monday, we are offering “brunch at lunch”. The popular brunch items we are adding to the menu, for one day only, are Waffle Me, Bourbon French Toast, and New York Strip Steak with Eggs.

Did you know that MLK Day is also MLK Day of Service? It is referred to as “a day on, not a day off”, encouraging folks to go out and help strengthen their community. Dr. King was a nonviolent activist, so what better way to bring peace and unity to your neighborhoods than to create solutions together? There are many places to volunteer in the Atlanta area. Lots of charitable organizations get involved such as Hands On Atlanta, The Clothes Closet, Human Rights Campaign, Lost-n-Found Youth, and Outstanding Atlanta. King once said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’”
We have a dream that you will visit us this Monday. Join us for a yummy meal then make the drive to the city to honor Atlanta’s own Martin Luther King Jr. Wouldn’t it be cool to cruise down Martin Luther King Jr. Drive on MLK Day? Not only that, but volunteering on his behalf that dame day? Sounds like some bucket list checkmarks. It’s a new year, do a good deed. What’s the worst that could happen, it’ll make you feel good about yourself?
