Happy birthday, Mama Dip!

Mildred “Mama Dip” Council began serving fried chicken, big biscuits and fried green tomatoes long before Southern food became “cuisine.” And anyone who has ever eaten at Mama Dip’s in Chapel Hill knows how good, honest food, made right, becomes great. There’s nothing like it.

Mrs. Council will turn 80 in September, and there’ll be a party to mark the occasion, of course. In keeping with her generous spirit, the party will benefit others. The celebration on Sept. 20, 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., at Fearrington Village will raise money for the Share the Love Fund at Triangle Community Foundation. The fund will offer grants to help children and youth develop self-esteem.

Tickets are $100 with sponsorships from to $500 to $1000. Go to www.trianglecf.org/sharethelove for more information.
