KRLD Restaurant Week Begins

Posted by    |    August 15th, 2011 at 9:59 pm

The ultimate foodie event of the year is upon us! KRLD’s Restaurant Week begins today. This is a great time to have a try restaurants that’s prices may have intimated you. Also, many restaurants have items on their menu that are only offered during Restaurant Week, such as Chamberlain’s Duck Confit Spring Rolls. You have to try this!

It’s a perfect time to book summer dining deals at 130 regional hot spots opening up tables, and currently accepting reservations for this special giveback opportunity supporting the North Texas Food Bank and Lena Pope Home the week of August 15-21, 2011. The event continues through September 4, 2011.

The event showcases North Texas’ thriving culinary scene, offers tasty three-course prix fixe dinner priced at only $35/person (tax, tip and drinks billed separately). The icing on the cake is that you help support local fine dining establishments and two great charities – making a $7 donation to either the North Texas Food Bank in Dallas or Lena Pope Home in Fort Worth. Last year they raised over $600,000 for these great organizations.

BONUS TIP: Make a purchase of $25 or more at any Central Market location, to receive a certificate redeemable for a FREE fourth course valid at participating restaurants.

Where will you be dining? Enjoy & make your reservations at the participating restaurants here!

Today might not seem like a significant day, but in fact it’s Cow Appreciation Day. As you know, my family is a fan of Chick-fil-A and on “Cow Appreciation Day,” they give away free ENTREES & COMBO MEALS depending how much you come in dressed like a cow.You can print out their cow costume kit here if you need help or create our own “costumes.”

With the help of its “Eat Mor Chikin” cows campaign, Chick-fil-A was recognized in 2010 as one of the top “Marketers of the Year” by Advertising Age, and as one of J.D. Power and Associates’ “Top Restaurant Brands in Customer Satisfaction.”

In preparation for this day, I sat down with Chick-fil-A’s President & Chief Operating Operator Dan T. Cathy, who was in Dallas to celebrate the advertising campaign at the headquarters of its creator, The Richards Group. (more…)
