Talk With Your Mouth Full

The Promenade at Chenal and the Little Rock Regional Chamber of Commerce paired up to present Talk With Your Mouth Full on Thursday night. It was a night of great food, wine and networking.

If you’re never been to one of the Talk With Your Mouth Full events, you are missing out.

There were so many yummy bites, it was hard to know where to start. Promenade restaurants — A.W. Lin’s Asian Cuisine, Big Orange Burgers, Bonehead’s Grill, Bravo! Cucina Italiana, Cafe Brunelle, Del Fresco’s Grill, Local Lime, Maggie Moo’s Ice Cream & Treatery, Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt and YaYa’s Euro Bistro — all had booths at the event, offering up some of their tasty cuisine.

Heidi, aka Margarita Mama, and I were able to sample food from A.W. Lin’s, Del Fresco’s Grill, Local Lime and YaYa’s. Everything was delicious, but I think the Ahi tuna tacos from Del Fresco’s were my favorite. The tuna tartare and guacamole were so refreshing on a warm evening. The restaurant just opened, and I’m thinking Matt and I will have to pay them a visit very soon!

There were also tons of networking opportunities. I will admit — I’m really bad at networking. I get very shy in crowds and would prefer to people watch. Luckily, I ran into one of my fellow Arkansas Women Bloggers and my roommate from the past three years of AWBU. Christie Ison, the founder of ARFoodJobs.com, and her husband, Joe, were at the event. So we chatted for a while, and they introduced me to some of their friends.

It was a fun evening. Heidi and I capped it off with cocktails and spinach dip at Bravo!

  1. Wish I had been paying attention so I could have gone. Sounds and looks like lots of fun. Maybe next time, you’ll see me there. Do they do it very often?

    Yes, you should check it out! I had a great time snacking around. And there was wine!
