Tourism Richmond names 12 Richmond Foodie Blogger finalists
Tourism Richmond has named the 12 finalists for its 365 Days of Dining campaign.
In February, Tourism Richmond put out the call for a food blogger who would be willing to eat at one Richmond restaurant a day for an entire year. The job pays $50,000.
