It’s the FIRST ever Cincy Salad Week!
You heard that right. A week long celebration of all things green from restaurants across the city. It kicks off on Monday, May 17th and runs through Sunday, May 23. In just a few short weeks, we have received a ton of support, interest and traction from the local community. Trust me in saying the hype and excitement is real — we are hoping to really use this year (week +beyond!) as a launch board for continuing to promote the salad-craze in the city.
How this will go:
The salad steering committee (made up of @cincyfitfoodie, @queencitylisa and @off.the.cuff.kitchen ) is going to continue tracking check-ins, tags, hashtags (#cincysaladweek) to crown the city’s voted best salad as well as reward one individual with the most creative salad made at home. Each winner will receive a $100 gift card to Kroger.
Not only that, but to continue the hype leading up to the week, there will be various giveaways through IG for $25 gift cards to the participating restaurants.
One last thing:
We’ve teamed up with a group of Cincy wellness enthusiasts & businesses to ‘wrap-up’ our week with a free workout in the park at Dogwood Park in Mariemont on Sunday May 23 @10am. Jess Evans of Dance Factory Fitness holds free workouts every Sunday (& has drawn huge crowds, even through the winter!), so we’ll join up with her + Anchor Wellness Center, MEAS Active, Elevate Pelvic PT. A few participating restaurants will even join in on the fun with booths + hopefully a few snacks.
