From staff reports

“Gold in the Hills” will partner with area restaurants Saturday night to present “A Taste of Vicksburg,” a sampling of about 20 of Vicksburg’s restaurants.

“They’re going to bring samples of their foods to the Hotel Vicksburg,” said Buddy Hallberg, long-time patron and current director of the melodrama. “Those who attend can choose from any of the restaurants, whatever food they’re partial to. After everyone has had their supper, we’ll go in and see the performance of ‘Gold in the Hills.’”
