 "This is another event that we hope will not only generate some fun and awareness but also keep money in the community."

 

The first-ever Capital Area Restaurant Week is officially under way.
28 restaurants in Mid-Michigan are participating.

For $25 a person, or a couple, depending on the restaurant,you can enjoy a three course meal.

Organizers hope to draw in an additional 20 people to each restaurant each night.

"This is just one more piece to the puzzle to bring people downtown," said Chambre Beauvais, organizer of CARW. "Years ago, it started with 'Be a Tourist in Your Own Town'-- keeping people in town during the summer instead of leaving the community.

"This is another event that we hope will not only generate some fun and awareness but also keep money in the community."

The restaurants involved this year hope restaurant week is a success. So it comes back again next year.

"Were trying to help showcase local restaurants," said Nick Gavrilides, owner of Soup Spoon Cafe. "We're one of them so were really excited to get some cross-pollination of people from different parts of the city to come try new restaurants."

Ten percent of all proceeds with go to the Greater Lansing Food Bank. Organizers are hoping to raise more than $7,000. Capital area restaurant week ends the 25th.
