Largos in Cartersville hopes to open next month: The official word — “We are still working on our patio out front, should be the first week of May for opening,” says Patricia Holt. Largos is coming to 214 E. Cherokee Ave. in downtown Cartersville just a few doors from Drowned Valley Brewing Co. The menu, says Holt, should include “creative fresh dishes made with local ingredients. The atmosphere is casual contemporary with an artistic flair.” Largos will be open for lunch and dinner Tuesday through Saturday as well as Sunday brunch.

The Development Authority of Floyd County meets at 8 this morning at the Manis Business Center. It is the quarterly meeting.
Thursday: Georgia Highlands College’s upcoming Spring Virtual Career Fair will feature more than 20 local employers with career options in healthcare, finance and more. The event is free and open to the public and available via Zoom.
While the event will be held virtually, Director of Student Support Services Angie Wheelus said the career fair will feature various rooms and remain similar to an in-person format.
“If the participant wants to have someone review their resume, or practice their interview skills, they can choose the ‘Resume Doctor’ or ‘Mock Interview’ room before meeting our visiting employers,” Wheelus said. “When ready, participants can meet with employers individually in breakout sessions and prepare for their interviews.”
When a participant joins the Spring Virtual Career Fair in Zoom, they will be welcomed by several members of GHC’s Student Support Services team to introduce the event. Participants are encouraged to turn on their camera and dress professionally, as participation in the career fair could lead to a job offer.
The event is from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. and be hosted via Zoom at https://highlands.zoom.us/j/
