Eat, Drink & Be Local and BuySC!

We've partnered on a free action campaign with the SC Small Business Chamber of Commerce called Eat, Drink & Be Local!

Lots of dining holidays are coming up, including Valentine's Day, Easter, Mother's Day, Graduation, and Father's Day, and we want to help encourage diners to choose restaurants that are independently and locally owned. Spread the word!

(Did you see us in Eva Moore's Free Times "Chew on This" column? So excited that the word is spreading!)

Any restaurant or business who would like to participate can simply download this poster*, print it and put it up. You can also add it to your website, Facebook page, etc. -- anywhere you like!

Poster design: Karen Williford Scurry
