(Columbia, SC) – Black Eats Week 803 (BEW803) is proud to announce 712 Vodka as the official liquor sponsor for the inaugural culinary event at partaking restaurants from June 19-25, 2023. This partnership will bring an exciting selection of beverages to complement the diverse flavors of the participating Black-owned restaurants in the Midlands area.

712 Vodka, a premium vodka named after the house number of the CEO and founder, is a nod to those with humble beginnings whose success is worthy of celebration. Maurice York, a South Carolina native, created this superior corn-based vodka brand for the dreamer with fierce ambition.

“We are thrilled to partner with Black Eats Week 803 as the official liquor sponsor,” said Maurice York, founder and CEO. “As one of the exclusively premium spirits in the country, we are passionate about providing exceptional beverages that enhance any dining experience. We applaud the culinary artistry of minority-owned businesses, and I, personally, am forever proud to serve my home state. We are the vodka of the Carolinas.”

In addition to the exciting liquor sponsorship, Mimsy’s, a popular West African restaurant, located at 200 Graces Way, Columbia, SC 29229, will offer a selection of FREE tastings throughout the week, including vegan options. Patrons will have the opportunity to savor the authentic flavors and culinary traditions of Ghana.

“Mimsy’s is committed to bringing authentic Ghanian dishes to our community. A diverse culture is what makes our city so great,” said Prince Panford, owner, Mimsy’s. “We are delighted to offer free tastings throughout the week as a fantastic opportunity to connect with our supporters while welcoming new food enthusiasts.”
