I went to the “iBuyBlack Meet and Greet” on Tuesday night at the Philly Platinum Grille, 7719 Crittenden Street in the Chestnut Hill section of Philadelphia. 


Dedicated people showed up, in spite of the rain. 

Earl Harvey — marketing manager for Platinum Grille and sales manager for the iBuyBlack discount card campaign — hosts this event every first Tuesday of the month from 5:30 to 8:30 pm. 

It’s open to small business owners, the general public, and all who are interested in supporting and growing Black- owned businesses. 

It’s a great way to meet, network and do business.

While networking, and I ordered three Swai fish platters to take with me.  They were delicious! 

When you go to Platinum Grille, be sure to tell them that you read about them in the Philadelphia Sunday SUN.
