It's bright and sunny here in Portsmouth, New Hampshire today... and after the crazy weather we've had for the past few days, I will gladly deal with the chill that's in the air so long as the sun stays shining. On my stroll to pick up some deeeeee-licious homemade granola from Ceres Street Bakery this morning, I realized that last night was the first night of our Spring Restaurant Week here in town! Yipppppppeeeee!
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Restaurant Week, you should acquaint yourselves... really and truly. If ever there was an excuse to visit Portsmouth for an evening, Restaurant Week certainly is an excuse that supercedes all others! This event is one that is held bi-annually, and which showcases some of the most fantastic culinary experiences you will encounter here in Portsmouth. Most restaurants create a special menu for the length of the event, and prices are fixed: for a 3-course lunch, $16.95 per person and for a 3-course dinner, $29,95 per person. You really can't go wrong!
Usually, on Fridays I would aim to showcase something new and lovely for you weekend peepers who will be visiting the store... but I think that one of the best things about Portsmouth is the community and inspiration we find amongst our fellow entrepreneurs. Restaurant Week is a really fantastic event, it brings many people into town and sort of, starts off our Spring season. So, if you have the inclination to go out and grab a bite between now and April 2nd, consider the list of restaurants who are participating in Restaurant Week! You are sure to enjoy your meal, and your evening, strolling around one of the most lovely towns in New England! And who doesn't like to buy (and eat :) local?!
Happy Weekend :)
Oh, ok... one little tidbit for you weekend peepers... our ladder of Smock wrapping sheets was just restocked yesterday, and I could not be more thrilled about it! If you are looking to do some Spring cleaning and re-organizing in the next few weeks, consider grabbing some of this lovely paper to line your drawers in the kitchen and bedroom :) SO lovely
