08/09/2019- A new event is encouraging residents in the Twin Cities and beyond to get out and try something new for dinner. inVenture North, the Menominee Downtown Business Association, and the MyMarinetteMenominee organization are sponsoring Restaurant Week August 12th through the 16th. Roberta Davis with inVenture North explains participating restaurants spanning from Stephenson to Peshtigo will showcase special menu options throughout the week and, as if a good meal isn’t enough, they’re offering a little extra incentive to those that stop in for a bite.
“You go into one of the participating restaurants and you can have a tasting- they have some things you can try- or you can choose from the full menu. When you’re done, you’ll get a little dining card, it’s a punch card, that says you were there. After you’ve visited 3 participating restaurants over the course of the week, you have a chance to win a gift card from one of those restaurants.”
Davis says with such a wide range of unique and talented chefs and restaurant owners in the area, there’s sure to be something to satisfy every palette during Restaurant Week.
In addition to the restaurants, several retailers are also taking part in the event. Davis says select storefronts will extend their hours on Friday the 16th so residents can enjoy an entire evening of dining and shopping in the area. A full list of participating restaurants and retailers can be found on the event’s Facebook page.
