Beach restaurateurs are adding a little extra spice to the local dining scene with the creation of Beach-a-licious, a two-week festival of food taking place in restaurants, pubs and bars along Queen Street East from March 14 to 27.
The event, an initiative of the Beach Village Business Improvement Association, will promote local food and beverage establishments that will offer diners discounts, special menu items, and a draw for prize packages from merchants and restaurants.
To begin this culinary adventure, food lovers can pick up a Beach-a-licious ‘passport’ at any of the participating restaurants. With every visit, the passport will be stamped and the diner entered to win prizes.
Travel the Queen Street strip from Coxwell Avenue to Victoria Park Avenue and proffer your passport at any of the 15 venues (at press time – more are expected to sign on).
A pub crawl on Sunday, March 20, from noon to closing, will feature promotional items at nine participating bars.
The restaurants already on board include BAM! Breakfast & Bistro, Beachside Grill, Breakwall BBQ & Smokehouse, Casa Di Giorgio Restaurant, Claret Wine Bar, Gabby’s Restaurant, The Gull & Firkin, Skwish, St. Louis Bar & Grill, The Stone Lion, Thai House Cuisine, and Whitlocks’ Restaurant.
