Chance to have lunch with the mayor

Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett on Friday will continue his “lunch with the mayor” program, this time at  Central Flats & Taps in the Happy Holler community.

“It's really just a continuation of our cash mobs,” Burchett said. “We're trying to pick locally owned businesses throughout the county.”

The mayor said the North Knoxville restaurant serves “pretty good food,” and that he hopes the event, which runs from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., draws a large crowd.

Central Flats & Taps is located at 1204 N. Central St.

The luncheons are an offshoot of the mayor's “cash mobs,” a concept that encourages people to show up at a small business at the same time and shop.

The county has held a number of them since late last year.

Friday's event is “Dutch treat.”
