If you like eating out and you're an Instagram user, you're probably familiar with @417Foodist, an account that's all about local food. Billy Dove, the person behind 417Foodist is now a regular contributor to the CVB's blog and social media. His topic, of course, is food!

"I am super excited to be sharing my love of all things food with the folks at Springfieldmo.org," he said. "I can’t wait to showcase all the great locally owned restaurants Springfield has to offer." 

So far, Billy has written two blog posts for the CVB and they've received rave reviews. 

We're looking forward to seeing more of Billy's food articles and hope you are, too.
