Louisa, VA – Louisa County Parks, Recreation & Tourism hosted their 3rd annual Restaurant Week beginning Friday, March 1st thru Sunday, March 10, 2019.
Ten businesses participated in this year’s culinary experience that spanned throughout the areas of Downtown Louisa, Mineral, Zion Crossroads and Lake Anna. This ten-day experience served to highlight the area’s locally owned restaurant and beverage locations through promoting signature dishes and drink specials at affordable prices.
In its third year, Louisa County Restaurant Week expanded marketing efforts and exposure, partnered with several new restaurant and beverage locations, along with adding a new charitable component to benefit the Louisa County Resource Council - for every special purchased, $1 would be donated to the Resource Council.
“It’s a great partnership and a collaborative effort,” said Louisa County Parks, Recreation and Tourism Director James Smith. “The combination of willing restaurants and a worthy cause was a recipe for success.”
As a result of these efforts, the number of recorded Restaurant Week specials purchased over the course of the ten-day experience totaled 1,187. A 1-1 donation match was gifted to the Louisa County Resource Council on Tuesday, March 26, 2019 on behalf of Louisa County Parks, Recreation and Tourism, and in honor of all participating locations.
