Restaurant Week Grand Rapids Kickoff!
It's time for Restaurant Week Grand Rapids again!
From Wednesday to Aug. 24, more than 60 great eating and drinking establishments in greater Grand Rapids will be offering dinner and beer or wine pairings for a special price!
And for the third year, there was a celebrity food competition that I was the master of ceremonies for.
This year's event aimed to find the Taste Master General in Grand Rapids.
A surprise summer salad with salmon and other ingredients had to be deciphered by the celebrity panel. People like Christian Frank from Fox 17, Jordan Carson from WOTV-4/WOOD-TV 8, Peter Ross from WZZM-13 and Curtis from "Connie & Curtis" on WFGR's sister station, Channel 95.7, were in the running.
Last year, Curtis upended Ross to win the title.
It was a fun event and a great way to kickoff Restaurant Week Grand Rapids!
