Love What's Local Restaurant Week

Due to the large impact COVID-19 has had on our local restaurants, we have decided to approach Restaurant Week a bit differently for 2021. We want to encourage community members during this week to go out and dine in or carry out at various restaurants for breakfast, lunch, and dinner but the support does not stop there. Grabbing a local cup of coffee, a sweet treat, or a grab and go meal also supports your local cafes and businesses.

The Love What’s Local committee has added a fun twist to their promotion. During the period of Restaurant Week, members of the committee randomly select two restaurants per day and randomly select a bill to put money toward. This could be for dine-in or take out at any point of the day. The more you support your local restaurants, the greater the opportunity to be the lucky winner!
