Catfish + politics

HRC 2nd Row.jpg

Do we have time for shrimp and grits?

Spotted a bit earlier today on Second Avenue North were Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, former Secretary of Labor Alexis Herman, Congresswoman Terri Sewell (AL-7) and Mayor William Bell of Birmingham. They flank Denise Peterson, owner of Yo’ Mama’s restaurant in the 2nd Row development (Second Avenue North between 23rd and 24th Streets). We’re thrilled Clinton stopped downtown to mingle with a local small business owner; as the frenetic few days before Super Tuesday’s primaries unfold, we hope other candidates stop downtown on their way to their events (Clinton was headed to Miles College for a rally).

And regardless of your personal politics, it’s easy to agree on the deliciousness of Yo’ Mama’s cooking. Try it out if you haven’t already!

UPDATE: We didn’t realize Clinton also stopped into Urban Standard (below she seems to charm a barista before downing an expresso). We’re proud that on her surprise visit to downtown our own project, 2nd Row, was her destination!
