SAVE THE DATE: April 26th, 2015, Memorable Meals
Remember those big family gatherings around the dinner table or those special “goout-to-eat” occasions when you were a child? The tantalizing aroma of Grandma’s pasta sauce? A cold, creamy Strouss’ malt? Many of us certainly treasure those moments in their hearts, minds … and tummies!
You can relive those tasty family traditions and cherished Valley classics as the Mahoning Valley Historical Society and Grow Youngstown present Memorable Meals Mahoning Valley … Homes & Restaurants on Sunday, April 26th, from 2:00-5:00pm. The event location is TBA.

Samples of "Classic" Valley food & drinks provided by our favorite eateries offering tastes of their signature dishes. Wash that down with samples from local wineries and breweries; a Photo and Recipe Display of Memorable Meals --- you can submit your photo/recipe/short narrative to firstname.lastname@example.org; and a presentation by local historian and writer Tom Welsh, who has published Classic Restaurants of Youngstown" a book about beloved local dining establishments.
