Restaurant Week helps the local businesses by attracting more diners to spend the night eating on the beach instead of at home

During the week of May 13-19, Clearwater Beach will host the 3rd Annual Clearwater Beach Restaurant Week, which is expected to host the biggest turnout to date. Clearwater Beach Restaurant Week is more than a celebration of Clearwater Beach’s food scene; it gives restaurants a much-needed boost during a time when business often slows.

The restaurant’s economic impact is felt by the many businesses that provide goods and services to Clearwater Beach’s vital restaurant industry. Clearwater Beach Restaurant Week also helps local non-profit organizations. Last year, $17,000 was raised for the Clearwater Marine Aquarium.

“Restaurant Week helps the local businesses by attracting more diners to spend the night eating on the beach instead of at home,” said Darlene Kole, President and CEO of the Clearwater Beach Chamber of Commerce. “We appreciate our sponsors for helping make this event possible.”

In addition to the mouthwatering cuisine, there will be a Kick-Off Party, on May 11, beer & wine sales, two stages featuring live music, an opportunity to buy raffle tickets for a number of value-packed gift baskets, and a fireworks display at dusk. Tickets to the Kick-Off 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 $10.00.

Tickets may be purchased at the door during the event or at the Clearwater Beach Chamber Office by visiting them online at http://www.ClearwaterRestaurantWeek.com or by calling 727-447-7600.

About the Clearwater Beach Restaurant Week
Clearwater Beach Restaurant Week is more than a celebration of Clearwater Beach’s incredible food scene; it’s a celebration of the economic engine that runs the Gulf Coast – tourism. The event not only gives restaurants a much-needed boost during a time when business often slows, but its economic impact is a ripple effect felt by the many ancillary businesses that provide goods and services to Clearwater Beach’s vital restaurant industry. But don’t forget about the customers who love the event because in addition to showcasing the different Clearwater Beach restaurants in one venue, the specially-priced menus offer value that some say feels “downright decadent!” Clearwater Beach Restaurant Week's value is lasting, as many customers who try new restaurants because of this week-long event return to dine again, and again, and again.
