This week, August 21-27, marks the third annual Support Black-Owned Restaurants Week, which encourages people to support black restaurant owners and local business.
First started in 2014 by Bertha Pearl after she was inspired by the Bay Area's Black Restaurant Day, the annual event has now grown to a full week of celebration. This year's Support Black-Owned Restaurants Week kicks off today, and in honor of the eclipse, many restaurants will be offering deals. The week will end with a party at chef/owner William Travis' Dub's St. Johns on Sunday, August 27 from 6-10. Travis has been a major part of the effort to expand this year's iteration.
There are similar events in Seattle and New York City.
Here is the full list of restaurants listed by Support Black-Owned Restaurants at iloveblackfood.com.
I’m waiting for Support Micronesian-Owned Business Week to spend my restaurant dollars.
Had to be Obama that called August 21-27 Support Black-Owned Restaurants Week.
Don’t think he had constitutional authority to do that.
DUMP Black-Owned Restaurants Week!
Is Sambo’s still doing business?
“Could I please have two heaping helpings of cultural appropriation? And hold the chitlins.”
Says it all...
I’m going to eat at a restaurant where blacks with a chip on their shoulder have a golden opportunity to spit in my food. I’ll pass.
Are there enough blacks in Oregon to make this a real thing? My impression is they’re lily white.
Just hope they don’t have any Jesse Jacksons working there.
Church’s Chicken and Wafflehouse
I’m guessing the black pop. in Oregon isn’t very noticeable.
I support black restaurant whatever every day. Very telling that Oregon has to make a special day of it.
Are there any Black Owned Gun Shops on the List?
No thanks, Oregon-even if I were unfortunate enough to live in one of your liberal cities, I’m not into patronizing a restaurant or other business based on the race or ethnicity of the owner-I have to like the food, product or service they offer-sorry...
annual Support WHITE-Owned Restaurants Week
Oh wait that would be racist. Who else is sick of the hypocrisy out there, and the white liberals who push this crap?
Im going to eat at a restaurant where blacks with a chip on their shoulder have a golden opportunity to spit in my food. Ill pass.
Same down here with a Mexican restaurant with La Raza and Mexican flags. They don’t have to spit on your food, they just handle the food imported from Mexico with unwashed hands.
My taste for bodily fluids and dirty fingernails never properly developed. I don’t eat food prepared by characters from Mordor.
Actually, I think it became "Sam's" and then Denny's. Sambo's used to be a fine establishment. I still have some wooden tokens good for a cup of coffee there; but it's just a token now.
