Highland Main Street Hosts Monthly Restaurant Crawl On September 29th
HIGHLAND | Downtown Highland will be the venue for a new monthly restaurant crawl, beginning September 29th, organized by the Highland Main Street Bureau. Future events will take place on the last Tuesday of each month. The event will feature nine of Highland’s downtown restaurants, each of which
have agreed to provide either a drink, appetizer, small entrée, or dessert for $5 or less. The restaurants are encouraged to change their monthly selection each month to provide variety and to attract repeat customers. Some offers will be available for dine-in only.
The participating restaurants include: Jose’s Family Restaurant, Langel’s Pizza, Dan’s Pierogies, Maria’s Buena Cochina, Growlers, The Counter Ice Cream and Italian Ice, Tradition’s, Sakura Bowl and Sip Coffee 2.
“Highland Main Street wanted to find an opportunity to assist downtown restaurants, which were hard hit by the ongoing COVID-19 emergency,” President Dawn Diamantopoulos said. “We thought that a monthly restaurant crawl, held on what is generally a slower business weekday, would be an ideal way to showcase our great downtown dining options.” The restaurant crawl events will begin at 5:00 pm.
