Feeling like you don't want to cook anymore?  Here's a way to avoid cooking and support local restaurants at the same time! Local Restaurant week is back.

It's an event that only happens twice a year, and next week is one of those times.  Local Restaurant Week returns to the 716 next week starting on October 14th and running through October 30th.

The idea is pretty simple.  Restaurants that choose to participate will essentially put together a special menu with "Restaurant Week" prices for either dinner or lunch (or both if they choose) where you can try new things and save a ton of money.  It's a way to get people out to support these restaurants by trying new places or picking a new dish at a favorite restaurant.

The cool part of all of this is that there are a ton of restaurants to choose from.  You could literally eat out at a different place every night of the week and get special deals everywhere you go.
