Chipotle Brined Pork Chop, one dinner menu option at Cleaver & Cork! Don’t forget to hashtag #KCRWGIVES!

One of the best times of the year! Kansas City Restaurant Week starts next week and we can’t wait! Celebrating its 7th anniversary this year, this gastronomic celebration has reached a new, all-time high with 185 participating metro- area restaurants. Most of our local favorites are on the list and there are so many that we can’t wait to try. Restaurants will be serving multiple-course lunches for $15 and dinners for $33. And of course, there is a good cause behind it all. This year, three new charitable partners were chosen as beneficiaries of 2016 Kansas City Restaurant Week. The donations raised during the  event will benefit Boys Grow, Children’s Center for the Visually Impaired and Cultivate Kansas City. The Kansas City Regional Destination Development Foundation and the Greater Kansas City Restaurant Association Education Foundation will again receive a portion of the donations.

Want to help these organizations even more? Throughout KC Restaurant Week, take a picture and hashtag your meal with #KCRWGIVES to be entered in a contest to win two tickets to one of these great local events benefiting the organizations:

Enteries can be submitted via Instagram and Twitter. One image/tweet equals one entry and three winners will be chosen at random throughout KC Restaurant Week.

Have Fun, Happy Eating! #EatLocal #DrinkLocal #GiveLocal
