GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Enthusiastic fans of the City’s West Side restaurant staples gathered at the Goei Center Wednesday night to support the continued efforts of revitalizing several area neighborhoods.

· Salvatore’s Italian Restaurant
· Westsider Café
· Harmony Hall
· Blue Dog Tavern
· That Polish Girl Catering
· Maggie’s Kitchen
