Restaurant Week takes to the streets | Business
Clearwater Beach, Florida - So many people are expected at this year's Beach Restaurant Week that organizers have moved the kickoff party to the streets along the Beach Walk.
"We had more than 1,500 people attend the event last year so we've taken the Kick-Off Party to the street so we can cater to more people and have space for two stages for double-the entertainment," said Darlene Kole, President and CEO of the Clearwater Beach Chamber of Commerce. "We are expecting a tremendous turn-out."
The kick-off party will be held on Friday, May 11, from 5 - 9 p.m.
Tickets to the party are $20 per person entry fee, which will grant access to more than 40 participating restaurant's tents that will line Beach Walk, each featuring tasty samples from their menu.
An optional wine tasting wrist band can be purchased for an additional $10. Tickets may be purchased at the door during the event or at the Clearwater Beach Chamber Office by visiting them online or by calling 727-447-7600.
