MADISON COUNTY, Ala. – Get your tastebuds ready because starting Friday, Restaurant Week takes place throughout Madison County. The 10-day event gives everyone a chance to try out some of the unique local restaurants in the area.
The Huntsville-Madison County Visitors Bureau says the theme is Socially Distanced, but Still Delicious.
They have made modifications this year for COVID-19. They’ve partnered with GrubSouth, so you can have your food delivered for free.
“We just really wanted to make this year more than ever about supporting the restaurants,” says Huntsville/Madison County Convention & Visitors Bureau Marketing Director, Kristen Pepper.
Each restaurant is also creating their own special for Restaurant Week.
“A Restaurant week special, whatever that looked like to them. If it was a normal menu item that they have already, if its a special dessert or just offering special for take out or delivery,” says Pepper.
Restaurant owners are hoping the week will encourage people to try out their space.
“It’s very important this year for people to get out and support them because this year, you know you’re not just supporting a restaurant you’re supporting a neighbor, you’re supporting a friend, you’re supporting someone in your community that really needs that help,” says Pepper.
There are more than 50 restaurants participating all throughout Madison County.
And for those of you who love your food pictures, there’s also a social media contest. If you post with the hashtag #dinehsv, you have the chance to win a gift certificate to one of the participating restaurants.
The event started Friday and runs through August 23.
