Blax Friday began as a simple spreadsheet — a list of Black-owned businesses in Tucson. In just a few short years, Blax Friday became not only the largest Black business directory in Arizona but evolved into a community organization dedicated to the owners thereof.
“Our goals are representation and economic empowerment of Black business owners. We spotlight businesses through our website, app, social marketing, promotions, and community events.“
Treat yourself to meats, sweets, chics, and more at Blax Friday’s monthly Soul Food Wednesday, which will take place this Wednesday, April 26th, from 7 p.m. – 10 p.m. at Playground Bar & Lounge downtown.
Enjoy local soul food in Tucson while smelling the artisanal scents of Light of Mine candles, perusing the artsy gifts of Lil’ Desert Doodles, and convincing your significant that you really do need another Sonoran succulent from Drutopia. Just one more. For real this time.
Come warm your belly, soothe your mind, and celebrate your life with multicultural pizzazz. The event is free to attend.
Can’t make it? Wish you could? Don’t fret. Soul Food Wednesdays will return on Wednesday, May 31. Stay tuned.
