Sassool holds annual birthday celebration

Both locations of Sassool Mediterranean Cafe will hold celebrate the birthday of its namesake Cecilia “Sassool” Saleh on Aug. 8.

The celebration will include the featured menu item: the Cecilia Sandwich, a pita wrap filled with zaatar, cheese, olives, peppers and mixed greens. (Zaatar is a blend of ground sumac, thyme, sesame seeds and olive oil.) There also will be door prizes, including free admission tickets to Marbles Kids Museum in downtown Raleigh or bottles of Lebanese red wine.

The celebration coincides with the senior night when those ages 55 and older receive 15 percent off their meals.

A percentage of sales on Aug. 8 also will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

The Sassool locations are 1347 Kildaire Farm Road, Cary, and 9650 Strickland Road in Raleigh. (From 5:30-8:30 p.m. at the Cary location, a magician will offer family entertainment.)
