When the Vice-Presidential Debate was held here in 2000, a lot of people from out of town ate in our local restaurants.
One of those following the debate, David M. Shirbman of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, has an article in this month's Bon Apptit about restaurants he ate in over two decades as a political reporter.
One of his favorites is Freddie's in Danville, where he "learned to appreciate the finer points of lasagna."
Such publicity can usually mean a boost in business. Recently, Two Roads Cafe was reviewed in the Lexington Herald-Leader. That night a couple touring the 127 Yard Sale came for dinner because they had read the review that morning.
