CRVA launches ‘Your Table is Ready’ to  support the culinary community and welcome diners back safely

CHARLOTTE, NC – (August 17, 2020) – The Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority announced the launch of restaurant-focused digital campaign, “Your Table is Ready” This campaign serves as an evolution to the “Pitch In. Take Out” culinary campaign that first launched in mid-March as a comprehensive take-out and curbside resource. The new effort features a suite of engaging videos showcasing local chefs and restaurateurs inviting residents back to their businesses with specific details on how they plan to keep diners safe.

To thank patrons for their patience waiting to dine out until deemed safe, from now until Sept. 30 as part of “Your Table is Ready”, Charlotteans can enter the "Thanks for Waiting, CLT" giveaway by submitting their "missed occasion" stories here and sharing on social media using the hashtag #ThanksForWaitingCLT for the chance to win a $250 gift card to the Charlotte restaurant of their choice. Four winners will be selected by a panel of judges. Full contest rules here.

The campaign features:

  • Ashley Boyd, 300 East

  • Bob Peters, The Grinning Mule
  • Thomas Marlow, Mimosa Grill
