Did you hear about the Soul Food Showdown in honor of Black History Month? I can’t believed I just learned about a FOOD event only days before it winds up. Well FED Magazine is the sponsor and the event is easy to join. Simply eat at one of the following locations, then vote for your favorite restaurant, either in person (at your fav spot), via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or on Facebook. Cast your vote and you might be the recipient of a gift certificate to the winning restaurant.
