How do you see the food scene in Evansville changing?
That has been really interesting, because in Evansville you have to have food to serve alcohol. Well, we have our bar snacks – different popcorns and things that we’ve made. So it’s this new thing and people are like — "What do we do? What are we supposed to eat?" Well, you can eat anything. Bring it in; pack a lunch, bring it in.
I’m a big advocate of staying in your lane — you don’t want me cooking for you. Sauced, Dapper Pig, Walton’s – those guys absolutely know what they’re doing. They cook for a living and their food is awesome! So we definitely want to pull them in and have everybody order from there.
Another thing I'd like to see change is, there’s a lot of people in parts of our neighborhood that can’t afford to eat at the places that are down here. So I think it would be fantastic to have a food truck lot for the people that do live down here but can’t afford to eat at the higher priced restaurants. We should be accommodating these people as well. If you grow as a community with things that everyone can do and come to, then everyone feels included. It’s only going to bring more people down here; it’s not going to hurt anyone. To me, you can never have enough varieties and options for everyone.
