It's my favorite week of the year! For 10 days only, participating Cedar Rapids restaurants will be serving special menu items at special prices for Cedar Rapids Restaurant Week.

This Thursday, March 15th, begins a celebration of some of the amazing local restaurants in the city of Cedar Rapids. You will have until the 25th to enjoy all the special deals in town, and then the event will come to a close at the 2018 Dinner of Champions. That will be held on March 29th at the DoubleTree by Hilton Convention Complex downtown. The Go Cedar Rapids website says:

"Seven of Cedar Rapids’ best chefs will compete to be crowned champion and you are the judge. Enjoy ¼ size entrée dishes created by each of the seven chefs then cast your vote for best dish. There will also be more than a dozen tasting stations for you to explore that feature local breweries and local producers..."

There will also be a mixology competition taking place, where you'll be able to taste samples of craft cocktails. Tickets for that event are $30 for general admission and $60 for VIP. The VIP ticket includes a tasting hour with Cobble Hill and Cedar Ridge Winery. For tickets, click HERE.
