Restaurant Week in SoCal
This item in the Los Angeles Times about Restaurant Weeks (a week of discounted dining programs and special fixed-price menus to raise money for charity organized amongst restaurants) in DC, San Francisco and New York reminds us how hard life is for the gourmand who has to pinch-pennies. New York concludes 2 weeks worth of dining discounts on January 31st.
Makes us wish LA Dine Out were scheduled earlier in the calendar year--it's not until August or so.
Happily, San Diego's Restaurant Week starts started January 30th.
