While browsing yesterday I came across news about the second straight year of the Buffalo Urban League Young Professionals sponsored 'Black Restaurant Week'.  Here's what I read:

For a second straight year, the Buffalo Urban League Young Professionals is sponsoring Black Restaurant Week.

The event, which began Sunday, includes promotions at 13 different Buffalo restaurants. The goal is to help support community, diversity, and entrepreneurship in Buffalo.

Each restaurant will have a special Restaurant Week menu. There's also a raffle to win a gift certificate at one of the participating restaurants; customers are asked to use hashtags #BRWBuffalo2019 and #BULYPNY to be entered.

Memphis celebrates its 4th Year of 'Black Restaurant Week', where it generated $575,000 with this year's event said to be the biggest yet.  The Memphis Black Restaurant Week Celebration will feature 6 restaurants that have been open for less than a year.
