Happy Hour Alert: Meet Us at the Southern Obesity Summit


Heading to the Southern Obesity Summit in Charlotte, N.C., later this month? If so, be sure to meet up with’s Marty Kearns and Zach Brooks during the big event for a special happy hour.

The best part: Drinks and snacks are on us!

Marty and Zach will be holding court at BlackFinn Charlotte starting at 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 15. Guests who stop by will receive a drink ticket, which can be redeemed for draft beer, wine or a cocktail. We’ll also have some healthy snacks for folks to munch on.

“I can’t wait to meet the Leaders in person who I always connect with online,” Zach tells the Inside Track. “And I can’t wait to discuss their work in the childhood obesity movement.”

The restaurant is located just one-and-a-half blocks from the official convention hotel at 210 East Trade Street, Suite 120-B.

If you are attending the conference but can’t make the happy hour, be sure to check out Marty and Zach at the Stay Late! Post Summit Workshop at 1 p.m. on Tuesday. The dynamic duo will discuss how to start a social movement to prevent obesity. Dewey Caruthers, president and CEO of 180 Change and Christina Trapolino, social media director of Jason’s Deli, also are scheduled to present at the workshop, which is set to take place in the Myers Park/Dilworth Room.
