National Foodies Day – May 9th
Celebrate with us!

National Foodies Day is for all foodies to come together to celebrate!

People who are passionate about food have kindred spirits. Foodies can strike up a conversation about the shared love of good food anytime, anywhere. You can find that common ground instantly, swapping stories about your favorite Italian joint or burger spot. You might even talk about your go-to wine pairings or signature cocktails. Nowadays, the foodie craze has grown to encompass a wide range of culinary styles and cuisines. It only makes sense to have a whole day set aside dedicated to celebrating those who love food!

And let’s not forget that great food is also about the social aspect. Enjoying a meal with friends is by far the best, but even sharing our photos and thoughts about food we’ve experienced over social media is a huge part of a Foodie’s life. There is so much food love out there, we need a day to get away from the hum-drum of quick, weeknight dinners and revel in the gloriousness of our culinary wonders. Hey, we can’t live without food. We might as well make sure it’s good.

If you are a restaurant owner, you can help us celebrate too! Get the word out there by offering a special item dedicated to National Foodies Day, a prix fixe menu, or create a one-of-a-kind cocktail. Get funky with it – make it as over the top as possible. Embrace your fellow foodies and show them how much their support means to you!
