Hey, y'all! Don't we all need some good news in 2020? I think so - and for my fellow Kentucky foodies, I have some great news for you. Shelby County, KY - one of my favorite small communities in the Commonwealth - is hosting their inaugural Restaurant Week November 9th - 13th, 2020. In the mood for a culinary-driven night out, day trip, staycation, or creative takeout options? Then this is the event for you!
Please remember to #MaskUp & be safe, y'all!
About Shelby County, KY Restaurant Week: November 2020
Including Shelby County, KY’s tap house, bakeries, and coffee shops, ShelbyKY Tourism designed Restaurant Week to celebrate the food industry, keep customers shopping within Shelby County, and encourage new guests to visit. Participating businesses may be found online, with new establishments added up to Nov. 9. There are few messages that I can get behind more than supporting small, local businesses. They are the backbone of our economy - and what makes our state the special place that it is.
