Ferndale has grown to a destination for dining and spirits, and from Oct. 7-13 visitors can savor the many flavors of Ferndale with Restaurant Week.
Two dozen restaurants are taking part in the promotion, which features meals at a $10, $20, or $30 price point. Featured meals can be breakfast, lunch or dinner. An easy-to-use guide is available at http://www.ferndalerestaurantweek.com.
In addition to the fine food, there is “The Art Part.” Here’s how it works: a local artist submits one original piece of art and is then paired with a participating venue, where the piece will be displayed. A photo album featuring the submissions will be hosted on the Ferndale Restaurant Week Facebook Page where restaurant week goers will vote on their favorite piece of artwork. The art piece with the most votes will win a $10,000 cash prize. The art pieces will be auctioned off at a party/event following Restaurant Week, with half of the proceeds going to the artist and the remaining going toward The Art Part scholarship fund.
Participating restaurants include Howe’s Bayou, Dino’s Lounge, One-Eyed Betty’s, Easy Like Sundae, Inyo, and Como’s. For more information go to http://www.ferndalerestaurantweek.com.
