U.S. Congressman Garret Graves held a “Grub with Garret” on Feb. 19 at Simple Joe Café on Government Street.

Graves started the event in 2015 as a community engagement initiative similar to a traditional town hall meeting, a news release said. Residents attending the open forum are able to share their views and ask questions about Graves’ work in Congress.

Grub with Garret events are held across Congressional District 6 and are open to the public. Visit or for information.
