Campo November 2013 Newsletter

On the Plate:

In November, we’re hashtagging our food – and so should you!

Momma always said don’t play with your food….but we disagree!

Build a hashtag using your food, tag #renofoodporn and tag the restaurant you’re at on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook. One lucky winner will walk away with a $100 gift card to chez louie at the Nevada Museum of Art at the end of the month.
