Milton’s Patriot Day Chowdown Salute to America Honors Local First Responders on September 11
First responders put others first on a daily basis. The tables turn on Sunday, September 11 when Milton’s Cuisine & Cocktails executive chef Derek Dollar transforms the traditional Farmyard Chowdown into a Patriot Day Chowdown as an expression of gratitude to these selfless heroes. Milton’s invites the entire community – along with the city of Milton’s firefighters, police officers and Milton mayor Joe Lockwood – to enjoy an afternoon of family fun. Dollar calls this month’s chowdown a “low country boil on steroids,” thick with shrimp and corn. His kitchen team pulls out the stops by serving piles of lobster, crab legs, pickle-fried chicken, pulled pork, pastrami-rubbed ribs, side dishes and other goodies as well as kid favorites like chicken fingers, french fries and cotton candy. Every corner of the lush grounds will celebrate good works with awesome entertainment from 4-8 p.m. including fire truck tours in the parking lot, live music in the garden, lawn games, a balloon release and a lively children’s play area in the backyard with a bounce house, face painting and more. The $40-per-adult and $20-per-child price includes food, music and entertainment (tax, small online service fee, alcoholic beverages are extra). Buy tickets online. Plenty of parking!
