Starting this Sunday, you can explore black owned restaurants at a discount from Feb. 12-19. There’s many black owned businesses in Chicago but we don’t have the strength in communication to know that we exist.
Chicago Black Restuarant Week was founded by Lauran Smith, a Social Media Specialist, and unlike Choose Chicago’s “Chicago Restaurant Week” you don’t get a 3 to 4 course meal 🥘 on discount. You do get a discount for discovering new places to spend your money in the community.
I’m going to check out some of the restaurants on the list and plan some spots to hit. Make sure you call ahead to see what discounts each business is offering before you go. Great way to spend Valentine’s Day too.
