Las Vegas Restaurant Week 2012
August 27th to September 2nd 2012 brings out creative menus, discerning palettes and a full blown eating spree during Las Vegas Restaurant Week all for charity.
“Now in its sixth year, Las Vegas Restaurant Week gives restaurants in our community the opportunity to give back through the culinary arts. We are proud to report that since 2006 over 1.5 million meals have been provided for those in need through Restaurant Week. Today, Three Square feeds nearly 100,000 men, women, children and seniors each month, however the need is estimated at three times our current reach. By joining us for Las Vegas Restaurant Week, you are helping us get closer to our goal of feeding the 300,000 people in need in Southern Nevada. All proceeds from Restaurant Week remain in Las Vegas and help Three Square in its fight to end hunger in Southern Nevada.
Participating restaurants create menus for breakfast, lunch or dinner and select a donation of $4, $5, or $6 for each meal sold. You can search for a restaurant by type of cuisine, location or even meal type and price point. Participating in Restaurant Week is easy. Once you've chosen a restaurant, just call to make a reservation!”
