Let’s get one thing out of the way before you devour the Yes! Weekly 2015 Best Of the Triad issue: We wouldn’t be able to honor the stellar people, growing businesses, exceptional services and elegant bathrooms without your help. The Triad is exploding with creativity and innovation, and honoring these leaders would not be possible without the support from all of you, the readers of Yes! Weekly.

Tallying up the votes, connecting with business owners, engaging with readers… this is all part of what makes us jubilant when compiling the data that allows us to build this issue. We can’t thank you enough for participating, and we certainly can’t thank you enough for investing your time, money, and energy into the most exciting locations in North Carolina.

Hopefully you’re sitting with a cocktail made by the Triad’s best bartender, or eating a meal prepared at one of the area’s best restaurants, or twirling your hair that was recently styled at the best salon, but either way, we are appreciative that you’re spending your time learning about all the things that make Triad the best place to live. Cheers to the winners and the runners-up, and a special toast to the businesses who did not make the list, but who also keep the vibrant energy palpable.

Jersey Mike’s “Day of Giving”

jerseymikesSub lovers from coast to coast can make a substantial difference today by joining Jersey Mike’s “Day of Giving.”

Jersey Mike’s Subs, known for its authentic fresh sliced/fresh grilled subs, is donating 100 percent of sales to more than 120 local charities including schools, hospitals, youth organizations, food banks and more. Always held on the last Wednesday of March, the “Day of Giving,” this year on March 25, is the culmination of Jersey Mike’s 5th Annual March “Month of Giving” fundraising campaign.

The company is committed to raising as much money as possible for these important causes. For added momentum, since March 15, Jersey Mike’s has been running a special Month of Giving commercial, with a tag in each market noting the local charity and inviting the public in to any of its participating locations nationwide to celebrate the “Day of Giving.”

“Giving…making a difference in someone’s life” has been the mission of Jersey Mike’s from the beginning. Since 2010, Jersey Mike’s locations have raised more than $10 million for worthy local charities and have distributed more than 1 million free sub sandwiches to help numerous causes.

Throughout the month, customers have been invited to visit their local Jersey Mike’s restaurant and donate to that location’s designated charity partner. Last year’s “Month of Giving” initiative raised $2.1 million for 100 different charities nationwide and the company hopes to raise even more this year.

Jersey Mike’s believes that making a sub sandwich and making a difference can be one and the same, a philosophy that has fueled the sub sandwich chain’s popularity. Following its successful recipe of deliberate, well-considered expansion, Jersey Mike’s has more than doubled in size in just three years.

For more information about Jersey Mike’s Month of Giving, please visit: www.jerseymikes.com/mog

Jersey Mike’s, a fast-casual sub sandwich franchise with more than 750 locations open and under development nationwide, has a long history of community involvement and support. Started at the Jersey Shore in 1956, Jersey Mike’s serves authentic East Coast-style subs on fresh baked bread – the same recipe it started with over 50 years ago. The company’s mission is to bring its customers the highest quality, freshest made sub in the industry and give back to the communities in which it operates.

FESTIVAL DETAILS:
• Friday thru Sunday
• Admission: $5 for adults, $3 for seniors and students, $1 for children
Military service members get in at no charge

Pigfoot. Big Boned. Porky Butts.  They’re not names of pro wrestlers. They are just some of the barbecue pitmasters who will be competing at the East West BBQ Fest this weekend in downtown Greensboro.

Whether it’s ribs, brisket, pork butt or chicken, you’ll probably find it at the three-day barbecue and music festival, where pitmasters from North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Alabama, Arkansas, Texas and Ohio will convene.

Other food and beverage vendors will line the midway, as well.

In addition to the barbecue, the festival will have a main stage with music acts such as up-and-coming Nashville star Brandon Bailey, acoustic singer Natalie Gelman, bluesman Lightnin’ Charlie and rockers Bootleg Dynasty.

The festival features sideshow acts such as the Squidling Brothers and the risque Defiant Whisky Shady Lady Saloon.

And there will even be wrestlers.

This year, the festival features Lucha Libre masked-style wrestlers with matches Friday night and all day Saturday and Sunday.

It also will have a market where vendors will sell all sorts of cool things and services.

This is the festival’s third year, and it moves from Festival Park to a new location on East Washington Street.

The event is produced by Allen McDavid of AKA Entertainment and Media, which is behind the popular Texas Pete Twin City RibFest in Winston-Salem and other festivals across the state.
