Your Big MomEnem
Big Momma's Chicken and Waffles (5741 Crowder Blvd., 241-2548; www.bigmommaschickenandwaffles.com) is a new, locally developed restaurant concept with big ambitions. The quick-serve eatery offers the classic soul combo of fried chicken and waffles, plus breakfast, salads and chicken wings. It's the first restaurant venture for co-owners Larry Lee, Henry Holden and Earl Mackie, and they hope to develop the concept into a chain.
Dining to Make a Difference
This Thursday marks NO/AIDS Task Force's annual Dining for Life fundraiser. Participating restaurants pledge 25 percent of proceeds from the night to benefit the nonprofit, which serves people living with HIV and AIDS. Diners pay nothing extra to help. Visit www.noaidstaskforce.org for a list of the 40 restaurants involved in the effort.
