Today is the day! Lakeshore Restaurant Week kicks off today through Saturday, February 29th for nine consecutive days of specials, discounts and other flavor-filled activities from 21-area Muskegon area restaurants.
The idea for the Lakeshore Restaurant Week, formulated by Cumulus Radio and their five Muskegon based radio stations, will be to showcase the Lakeshore lunch and dinner restaurant scene, according to Rich Berry of Cumulus Radio.
“Winter will be ending soon, but in the meantime it’s still cold and wintery,” explained Berry. “So, we wanted to invite West Michigan residents to get out and enjoy something different to eat because they deserve it. We all deserve it!”
Participating restaurants were encouraged to be creative with their featured menu items and pricing during the Lakeshore Restaurant Week.
For example, Seasons Gastro Pub at the Muskegon Country Club is offering a three course dinner for only $28.
Dr. Rolf’s Barbecue has their spicy “Chili Topped and Loaded Tater Tots” available this week.
And Russ’ Restaurant on Henry Street is offering five different dinner meal choices for only $6.79 Monday through Thursday.
“Many of the restaurants have challenged themselves to come up with something different this week,” said Berry. “Hamburger Mikey has a Muffuletta Burger that is outstanding and Rad Dads’ has a rattlesnake taco available only this week!”
The overall theme of the Lakeshore Restaurant Week is to treat yourself to a wonderful meal at a place that you have always wanted to try – and do that more than once over the next 9 days.
Various specials can be found at muskegonlakeshorerestaurantweek.com or on Facebook at Lakeshore Restaurant Week.
“You probably can’t make it to all 21 restaurants, but getting out with your spouse or your friends is something that is fun to do” said Berry. “Maybe there are places that you really would like to try, or there is a restaurant that you haven’t frequented for a while. This is your chance. Here is your excuse for getting out this week.
“We can work on losing weight after February 29th,” laughed Berry. “But in the meantime, get a group together and start eating!”
