City of Tupelo

    Downtown Tupelo worked in collaboration with downtown restaurants to present 2014 Downtown Restaurant Week. During the week of September 8 – 13 participating downtown restaurants offered various types of specials during breakfast, lunch and dinner.

    During Restaurant Week, each time a customer ate at a participating restaurant, they were encouraged to vote for a non-profit to win $500.00. We are please to announce our downtown customers voted for Sanctuary Hospice House to win the grand prize of $500.00.

    Thank you to the participating restaurants and everyone who supported the 2014 Downtown Tupelo Restaurant Week.

    The participating restaurants were Bar-B-Q by Jim, Earnest B’s, Fairpark Grill, Frutalicious, Kermit’s Outlaw Kitchen, Park Heights, Rosie’s Cookies, Cakes & Cream, Simply Sweet by Margarete, St. Jean’s Bakery and Café, and The Stables Downtown Grill.

    Jackson, MS—Speaker of the House Philip Gunn is a good listener. He’s known in many circles as being the man to call when you need to not only be heard but to be understood. From his family members to his friends to fellow Legislators to constituents, Speaker Gunn is an active listener, which is why he is hitting the road for his third MS Solutions—An Ideas Tour the week of September 22.

    “I have my opinions,” said Speaker Gunn. “But I also place stock in where other people stand. I intend to weigh the pros and cons of an issue. I want to know and understand the issues people are passionate about and concentrate on the solutions they believe will help Mississippi in the long run.”

    To support this, Speaker Gunn is again hosting the Tour, which is a non-partisan town hall style series of meetings. Mississippi Solutions—an Ideas Tour is a forum for all Legislators, citizens and the press. People are encouraged to bring ideas for solutions they have on issues affecting Mississippi.

    Speaker Gunn will visit eight cities in Mississippi during this year’s Tour.

    “We reach out to different areas so that people in communities across the state have the opportunity to attend a meeting,” he said. “But, we have not been everywhere. Just because we aren’t visiting your city, doesn’t mean your ideas are discounted.”

    Ideas may also be submitted through the Speaker’s website, Facebook page and Twitter account. Follow the tour on social media through #MSSolutions14.

    Each meeting will last one hour.
