The Big Eat

 The Big Eat is an annual event held on Tuesday nights in January, February, and March during which participating local restaurants offer signature dishes at up to 50% off.  It is a great opportunity to try a new restaurant and mix up your usual dining experience.   The discount is for customers who eat in.   The annual event helps locally owned restaurants get through the slower winter months. Reservations are recommended for several restaurants that sell out for The Big Eat so be sure to call and book your Big Eat dinner early!
