Helping Out Our Neighbors to the South While Dining Out

Kerry Kraus

 


The Gulf Coast oil spill was a huge blow to the seafood and restaurant industries in the South and Southeast. The impact is going to be felt for some time. The U.S. Travel Association and convention and visitors bureaus across the region, including Little Rock, are joining forces to promote “Dine America: AMERICA’S NIGHT OUT FOR GULF SEAFOOD.” The event takes place Wednesday, Dec. 1 and hundreds of chefs and restaurants, over 275 in New Orleans alone, have signed up to participate.

The intent is to showcase the safety of Gulf seafood in the aftermath and clean up of the BP oil spill. All those taking part are serving a special dish that includes fish, oysters, shrimp or crab from the Gulf of Mexico. The gulf supplies nearly half of the country’s seafood.
