Western New York Local Restaurant Week | Restaurants
Local Restaurant Week is October 15 – 21, 2012
Local Restaurant Week is a bi-annual event that celebrates the vital role our local, independent restaurants play in contributing to our cultural identity and regional economy. It is a way to celebrate and promote our regional food culture.
To mark the 8th Local Restaurant Week, the Erie County Legislature will officially declare October 15-21, 2012 as Local Restaurant Week in Erie County during session, on Thursday, October 11..
Local Restaurant Week gives consumers the opportunity to be adventurous and try new restaurants for a fixed price of $20.12 and encourages diners to skip national chain restaurants in favor of supporting local independents.
Profits from each dollar spent at our locally-owned, independent restaurants stay right here in WNY and make our community stronger. Join us, show your support, and tell some friends.
