From Harford County government:
The Harford County Office of Economic Development’s Office of Tourism has announced that the second annual Harford County Restaurant Week will be held from June 9 to 15, 2011.
Participating restaurants throughout Harford County will be offering prix fixe (price fixed) menus consisting of three-course meals for $20.11 (or less), plus tax, beverage, and gratuity. Limited service restaurants or restaurants with a lower price point are offering other special values.
Those wishing to be eligible to win $1,000 worth of dining must have dinner at a participating restaurant during Restaurant Week and fill out a dining card entry form. The restaurants collect the entry cards and return them to the Office of Tourism, where they are collected for the grand prize drawing. A random drawing of all the cards will pick the winner of the $1,000 of dining. Each of the participating restaurants donates a $25 dining gift card to participate in the Restaurant Week promotion.
Harford County’s first Restaurant Week was quite a success for the participating restaurants. More than 40 restaurants participated during last year’s event, with most restaurants experiencing an increase of 10 to 15 percent in their dining customers during that week.
The grand prize winners from last year’s drawing were Bob and Ellen Pettibone of Bel Air, who received their gift cards at the Olive Tree in Aberdeen from County Executive David R. Craig and Tourism & Marketing Manager Wini Roche. The Olive Tree and its staff members were also recognized with a commemorative plate as the busiest restaurant during Restaurant Week 2010.
Restaurant Week is coordinated and promoted through the Harford County Office of Economic Development’s Office of Tourism. Visit the tourism website at www.harfordmd.com for a complete list of participating restaurants and their special prix fixe menus for Restaurant Week 2011.
