Restaurant Week 2014
Restaurant Week 2014 is coming! And, y’all, there is so much good stuff this year. The main event is specials and deals at some of your favorite local restaurants. Two course lunches at $5, $10, and $15 price points. Three course dinners at $10, $20, and $30 price points. Check out the official site to see the participating restaurants and their specials.

In addition to the specials at the participating restaurants, there are a couple of fun events planned. The first you have heard me mention in the Small Bites posts. A Night Out with The Chefs will be hosted by Christy Jordan from Southern Plate and will give you a “behind the scenes” peak into the thoughts of  Chef Phillip (The Eaves), Chef McDonald (The Bottle), Chef London (Humphrey’s Bar & Grill) and Chef Martin (The Jackson Center). All proceeds will benefit Deep Roots and there are just 16 tickets left!

The second is the Rocket City Food Bloggers Tour. On August 15th, 16th, and 17th, myself and five other local food bloggers will gather for lunch at one of the participating restaurants. My companions will be:

Christy Jordan of Southern Plate
Constance Smith of The Foodie Army Wife
Paula Claunch of AKA Jane Random
Sarah Belanger of The Jealous Crumpet
Stephanie Walker of Rocket City Mom

It promises to be a series of fabulous meals and you can win a seat to join us!

To enter, simply tweet, facebook, or instagram about your favorite local dining experience using the hashtag #dinehsv and tagging me!

You will have your choice of lunch on either the 16th or the 17th, both slated for 1pm.
