The Dish 

Dishcrawl Memphis hosts its first event on Tuesday, February 5th, in Cooper-Young.

Dishcrawl was launched in San Jose, California, a few years ago and has since expanded to other cities across the country as well as Canada.

Dishcrawl is a walking tour of four restaurants. Participants meet up with a Dishcrawl ambassador at a restaurant, where they try a sampling of dishes of the restaurants' choosing, with the owner or chef coming out to talk to the crawlers. They then move on to the next restaurant and then the next, with the final restaurant serving dessert. Each stop is 35 to 40 minutes. (There are also Dishwalks that move at a slower pace.)

Technically, the February 5th crawl is Dishcrawl Memphis' second "first" event. According to Dishcrawl Memphis' ambassador Paige Laurie, tickets for a crawl on Wednesday, February 6th, sold out within three days, so more spots were added and the Tuesday night event was added.

This will be Laurie's first crawl as well, and she's excited. She sees potential for crawls on Madison and downtown.

"There's a lot of pride in the Memphis food community," Laurie says. "We don't just stop at barbecue."

Dishcrawl Memphis Tuesday, February 5th, and Wednesday, February 6th, 7 p.m. $45. Meeting location is kept a secret until 48 hours before the event. For tickets and more information, go to dishcrawl.com/memphis.
