Today I discovered a new place in town. It is a beautiful old mill that has been converted into scores of art studios, shops and more. It is called Lowe Mill, but I’ll share more about that another time. The reason I went to this interesting place today, was to be there for the announcement of the Huntsville Restaurant Week.
Judy Ryles the President/CEO of the Convention & Visitors Bureau kicked off the festivities of the afternoon. That’s the Mayor of Huntsville, Tommy Battle looking on there.
This was a big media event as well.
Madison County Commissioner Dale Strong shared his thoughts.
Want to know what Restaurant Week is?
It’s a special event featuring 28 participating restaurants around town – from a food truck to fine dining. Each restaurant will be offering special deals – lunch or dinner – at special prices. Lunches will have a set price of either $5, $10 or $15 and will include a main course and a dessert or an appetizer. For dinner, the price points will be $10, $20 or $30 and will include a main course, an appetizer and a dessert.
This is a great way for people to get out and try new restaurants, finding new favorites and having a great night out at a good price. The event goes on for 10 days, celebrating local cuisine.
There’s more than just meals planned for Restaurant Week – there are free demonstrations scheduled, such as a cooking Demo with chefs Merle Phillip and Robert Charles. (August 21st, 11:30-1:30 at the Visitor Center.)
The North Alabama American Institute of Architects also has a napkin sketch art display at the visitor center from August 6th to September 1st at the Visitor Center. This is also free to the public.

And by the way, I sampled these amazing creations from Pizzelle’s Confections. I popped one in my mouth, and holey socks! I need a box of these now. Right now.
So here I am in Huntsville, my new home. The first month I was here, there was a blogger meet & greet. And now they are having a Restaurant Week?! This foodie blogger is loving this town!
