Nina, it seems like you just had a restaurant week, but sounds like a great time for another chance to try new venues.

Joan Cox hi Joan... we had our Restaurant Week in January and it's coming up again in July. This one is just for black-owned restaurants in Charlotte. But we do have quite a few food festivals in spring and summer in Charlotte.

I never choose a restaurant based on the color of the skin of the owner and I hope that one day everyone will be treated fairly no matter what their skin color is.

Brian England hi Brian... this annual event is in support of black-owned businesses in Charlotte... lots of people aren't aware many of these businesses even exist... and after the pandemic many need support.

Beth Atalay good morning, Beth... food festivals have become ever more popular in Charlotte (and frequent) since we moved here in 1998 (and restaurants, as well).

Hi Nina, I love events like this and bet it is going to be a lot of fun.  We have something similar called the Taste of the Island, and we have Greek Festivals, Jazz Festivals etc, but I haven't been the best of showcasing them. I am moving to a new area, so this is a great thing for me to do!  Enjoy and eat something delicious for me!

Hi Nina,
Food fairs are always a popular event. I'm sure it will bring additional attention to some businesses needing it.

Brenda J. Andrew hi Brenda... we have a plethora (check it out Marte Cliff ) of food festivals in Charlotte, as well. They are so much fun to participate in. Where are you planning to move to?

We are moving to the Willis/Conroe area close to the Woodlands and Houston.  There is lots and lots to blog about here. We have been trying out a few of the local places to eat, and it is an adventure.  Lots of fun!  We are still transitioning, but should be here full time within the next 30 days.  My parents are here and we are enjoying being closer to them.

Brenda J. Andrew hi Brenda... I've always been fond of Corpus Christi... but it sounds like you are moving towards Houston for good reasons... I wish you much happiness in your new home and city.

Grant Schneider hi Grant... and I haven't been back to Merts since that day! Every so often I think about it... but for me it's the other end of town, so somehow I find reasons to stay closer to home.

George Souto good morning, George... I think more cities and towns are doing restaurant weeks each year... maybe the idea will catch fire in Middletown soon.
