I went to the kick off party for the Restaurant Week last November. It was awesome. There were so many great restaurants and wines to sample. The atmosphere was really festive and fun! I can’t wait to go this year. Burgers, Bloodies and Brews sounds like a must do for me! I hope to see you at an event.
