The public is invited to a screening of the web series “Small Town Flavor” at 7 p.m. today at Wayne and Jayne’s Whiskey Bar, inside V the Market on Fourth Street.
“Small Town Flavor” is an original web TV show, which follows host Pete “Panini Pete” Blohme on a tour of America’s small towns.
The show focuses on the living nostalgia, lives, perspectives, traditions and food culture of Main Street America. The series is produced by Stuart Meyer and Social Frequency Media Productions.
“Our three goals are to celebrate America’s small towns; to get people to rethink their own personal happiness; and to ‘Save Main Street,’” Meyer said.
“Small Town Flavor” recently began airing a series of videos showing a dawn-til-dusk day in Boyle County.
“They didn’t miss a thing! The film highlights locations like Burke’s Bakery, Merchants Row in Perryville, and Pioneer Playhouse. It is our county at its finest,” said Jennifer Kirchner, executive director of the Danville-Boyle County Convention and Visitors Bureau.
“We are really excited to celebrate our new web show ‘Small Town Flavor’ by having a viewing party for the people who make this film so special and compelling.”
During tonight’s event, guests will watch a 60-minute screening of the Boyle County series of the show. There will be a Q&A session with Meyer and Blohme and live music.
A camera crew will be on site to film a behind-the-scenes short documentary about the show’s tradition of returning to each town for the screening.
The mini-documentary will premiere in early 2013.
The event is hosted by the Danville-Boyle County Economic Development Partnership and V the Market.
“This production would not have possible without the EDP coming together with the city of Danville to fund this project and showcase to visitors, business investors, and those looking to relocate here why Danville and Boyle County is an unequalled and alluring place to be,” Kirchner said.
