Event Showcase: Restaurant Day

Restaurant Day - November 16, 2013

As much as I consider myself to be a "foodie," I am embarrassed to say that I had never heard about Restaurantday.org. Recently on my linkedin account (that I am remiss in checking on a regular basis), I received a posting about Restaurant Day, so I had to check it out.
Restaurantday.org describes the Restaurant Day concept as:

"Restaurant Day is a worldwide food carnival when anyone can set up a restaurant, café or a bar for a day. It can happen anywhere: at your home, at the office, on a street corner, in your garden or inner courtyard, at a park, or on the beach – only your imagination is the limit." ~ Restaurantday.org

The event started with just a humble smattering of 13 cities and 45 restaurants participating back in May, 2011, and has swelled to an impressive 220 cites, 35 countries and 1683 restaurants (at their last event, August 18, 2013.)

For more information on the next Restaurant Day being held on November 16, 2013, visit their site: Restaurantday.org, for more detailed information.
