Year of Alabama Food Campaign Continues in 2013
The Alabama Tourism Department is continuing the Year of Alabama Food in 2013. Alabama Restaurant Week will be held August 16-25, and we are encouraging the restaurants of Elmore County to participate. This week is a chance for our local restaurants to highlight their favorite dishes at specially set prices and gain statewide attention. Look for more information from us as that date draws closer.
During 2012, the Alabama Tourism Department revived their list of 100 Dishes to Eat in Alabama Before You Die. Wetumpka's Our Place Cafe earned a spot on the list for their crab cakes with dill sauce. You can view the entire list at www.yearofalabamafood.com.
