Two restaurants are celebrating their 10-year anniversaries over the next few weeks. Making it one year in the business is an accomplishment of its own. Getting to 5 is a milestone, and then making it to 10 is rare when you look at the number of restaurants that close before that mark.
When I started blogging over eleven years ago, I didn’t get many comments or emails from people. I do remember the very first email ever asking me to review a restaurant. That was for Doo-Dah Diner.
The popular diner at 206 E. Kellogg opened on September 12, 2012. On Tuesday, September 20, they will celebrate their 10-year anniversary with a rare evening event.
From 4:30 to 7:30 p.m., they will offer a Cajun Feast featuring crawfish, étouffée, jambalaya, gumbo, and more. The all-you-can-eat buffet runs $30 a person, 15 for ages 6-10 and 75+. Reservations are encouraged by calling 316-265-7011.
Next up is Public at the Brickyard. Another downtown hot spot, will hit a decade in October.
To celebrate the occasion, they are hosting a 10-year anniversary street party on October 8 starting at 4 p.m.
They will close down Rock Island and set up a special state in their alleyway with music from Josue Estrada Band and more. Local farmers and vendors will be selling their wares, you can expect food trucks and foodie collaborations. Photo booths, games, activities, and so much more are in the works.
For more on the event, be sure to follow the event page Public has set up.
