The following is an editing release from the city of Attleboro:
The city of Attleboro is excited to announce its first Restaurant Week, which will take place from Oct. 1-7. The goal is to make it a semi-annual event.
Restaurant Week offers an extraordinary opportunity for restaurants to showcase their unique and exciting menu selections and dining environments. This week-long event will encourage residents to sample menus from new restaurants as well as enjoy the city's historical gems and long-time local favorites.
"Restaurant Week is a great benefit for both patrons and the restaurant community," Mayor Kevin Dumas said. "This is an opportunity to give our local economy a boost while giving area residents a chance to experience what our city's culinary scene has to offer."
Guests will enjoy a prix-fixe dinner menu at participating restaurants across the city. Specially selected three-course dinner menus will be offered for $20. Some restaurants may also offer two-course lunch menus for $10.
"Other cities in the region have seen great success with hosting restaurant weeks," City Councilor Jay DiLisio said. "This event is a great way for the community to enjoy the variety of restaurants we have in our city while supporting local businesses."
No tickets, coupons or passes are required from customers. Food lovers may simply dine out at as many participating restaurants as they wish during Restaurant Week.
Attleboro restaurateurs interested in participating can register online at www.attlebororestaurantweek.com or contact DiLisio at 508-838-7328 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Restaurant Week is a proud supporter of the 3/50 Project, which is a national program that promotes stronger local economies. This initiative urges residents to select three locally owned businesses and spend a combined $50 a month among the three. For every $100 spent at locally owned businesses, $68 returns to the community.
The 3/50 Project isn't an "all or nothing" campaign that insists consumers stop shopping at chains or franchises. Instead, the message is about balance—of the money you currently spend each month, we simply ask you redirect $50 back to the locally owned independent businesses.
Restaurant Week pricing excludes beverages, taxes and gratuity. Terms and conditions may apply. For more information on Restaurant Week, go to www.attlebororestaurantweek.com. For more information on the 3/50 Project, go to www.the350project.com.
