Alpharetta restaurants team up for Labor Day cookout:  What could be better than cooking up a feast of ribs, pulled pork, brisket, and chicken this Labor Day weekend?  Easy – letting two of Alpharetta's favorite restaurants do it for you!

Oak Steakhouse and Colletta – both part of Alpharetta's popular Avalon development – will team up to host the 5th Annual Labor Day Pig Out on Sunday, September 1st from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.  So how do two restaurants join forces for one big event? They host it in the green space that separates their buildings (otherwise known as Palmer Plaza) and let visitors pay one price for an all-you-can-eat feast to send off the summer season.  Aside from the classic assortment of meats, guests will have a choice of sides including potato salad and coleslaw, and desserts like banana pudding and fruit cobbler.  Of course, you can't have a cookout without lawn games, and there will be plenty – and, yes, beer and wine will also be available for purchase.

Admission to the 5th Annual Labor Day Pig Out costs $35 for adults ($40 at the door) and $20 for children ages six to 12.

So…did somebody say all-you-can-eat?  We thought so!  So we spent the morning at Avalon, getting an exclusive preview of this weekend's big party!
