It’s black history month, and every great celebration is highlighted by the food. Of course I couldn’t let this month pass by without taking the time out to shine a spotlight on some black owned restaurants in the DFW. Guess what? I want you to get involved! I was inspired by the Black Blogger Clique in Houston. If you aren’t following them be sure to go and do so!
The Game (Prizes for winners)
I’ve created a BINGO style game (pictured above) to help you eat your way through DFW’s Black Owned Restaurants. Be the first to get a full row (vertically, horizontally or diagonally) and you will be eligible for gift cards and free meals from some of the restaurants featured in the game. When you BLACK (BINGO) DM me on Instagram, Facebook or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Of course you must provide proof through pictures or receipts that you patronized these great establishments. I’ve provided some suggestions on what to order in blue, but don’t feel obligated to stick to that suggestion. Explore the menus and try something new. As you play along be sure to tag the restaurants and Brandi’s Foodie Diary in your social media posts.
Are you stumped on where to go for your free space? Below are a few places to consider from my What about insert restaurant’s name list (places the people love but I just couldn’t squeeze into the game board).
Aunt Irene’s Kitchen
Southside Steaks and Cakes
Reggae Wings & Tings
Sweet Georgia Brown
Thibodeaux's Cajun Cookin
Savorite Southern Cuisine
Casserole Soul Cafe
Lisa’s Soul Food
The Plain Ole Salsa Company
Off the Bone Barbeque
Dough Boy Donuts
(again don’t be limited by this list for the free space you are welcome to pick any black owned restaurant for this space)
Is your favorite black owned restaurant missing from the list? Send me a message and I’ll be sure to add them to the honorable mentions so people can use them on the Free Space.
For my Houston friends be sure to get in on the challenge in your city as well.
New York City, y’all get in on the game too! My friend Dominek has put together a challenge for you all.
If you’re in Chi Town check out my friend Aaron’s Chicago version of BLACK.
Oklahoma City has more reasons to visit than a Thunder game. Thanks to my friend Apollo of OKC Black eats you now can get in the game with the OKC BLACK board.
