JT’s Bourbon Street Grille holds King Day Dinner Jan. 13
In commemoration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day, JT’s Bourbon Street Grille will host a special dinner at 6 p.m., Friday, Jan. 13 at the restaurant, 1407 N. Main St.
In 1964, Dr. King became the youngest person to receive the Nobel Peace Prize for his work to end racial discrimination through civil disobedience and other non-violent means. Martin Luther King Jr. Day was established as a national federal holiday in 1986. Dr. King is known as one of the greatest orators in American history and perhaps best known for his “I Have a Dream” speech delivered at the March on Washington in 1963.
The commemorative dinner will include some of Dr. King’s favorite foods such as pigs’ feet, pork chops and pecan pie. Cost of the buffet is $10 per person or $6 if reserved in advance. For more information, call (815) 964-4400.
