Dishcrawl Premiers in Durham, North Carolina

Culinary social networking organization brings its business to the South

Dishcrawl seeks to bring communities together through food.

Culinary social networking site Dishcrawl is taking its talents to North Carolina, the Durham News Service is reporting.

The organization hosts events centered on local food and restaurants, and will debut in Durham, North Carolina in July.

With multiple locations all over the United States, Dishcrawl offers events that are meant to bring food enthusiasts of all types together. The intentions are twofold, allowing people to connect over food while also giving local restaurants the chance to showcase their business.

The first event in Durham will be on July 10th, in the Five Points neighborhood. The event will take participants “through four of downtown’s hippest (and tastiest) eateries”, all of which will be kept a secret until two days before the event.  Similar events take place all throughout the United States, from a secret Clement Street tasting in San Francisco to a mysterious Boston North End Dishcrawl.

Recently named the Tastiest Town in the South by Southern Living, Durham is becoming a greater presence on the national food scene, with a burgeoning market and increased revenue within the industry in the past year.
