Here’s your chance to help those who want to travel, and to create a class “Places to Go” guide that involves food and geography. I want TWO examples and these can be places/food establishments/festivals/restaurants. Post your response to these (and please use the numbers!):
1. Your name
2. Name of the restaurant, festival, or place (such as the wharf or boardwalk)
3. Where it is located
