Q: When does a week last 8 days?
A: When it's Hamptons Restaurant Week.*
Returning for its tenth year, HRW is right around the corner. The festivities begin on Sunday, March 18th and continue for eight crazy nights of $19.95 and $24.95 prix fixes at area restaurants. Here's just a partial list of those participating so far (this number is expected to grow in the coming weeks):
· Il Capuccino
· Vine Street Cafe
Ensuring this is more than just an excuse to eat and drink, Hamptons Restaurant Week has partnered with Maureen's Haven, a local organization that seeks to address the issue of homelessness. Participating chefs will serve a three-course meal to homeless guests and volunteers on Monday, March 5. Additionally, the campaign is donating $10 to Maureen’s Haven for each new fan of the Hamptons Restaurant Week Facebook page (up to $2,495).
*Not that we're complaining. Hell, they could make "Restaurant Week" last all year and we wouldn't say peep.
