Downtown Alpena’s first-ever Restaurant Week kicks off this Saturday! From February 19 through Saturday, February 26, 2022, enjoy special deals, promotions, and menu items at thirteen participating cafes, restaurants, and eateries downtown.
The culinary scene in Downtown Alpena has been growing. A microbrewery, a winery, cozy cafes, an English pub– these are just some of the places that call our downtown home.
During Restaurant Week, pick up your “Restaurant Week Passport” at any participating location and get it marked each time you dine out during the week. Drop it off at Rusty Petunias Marketplace (123 W. Chisholm St). for a chance to win 1 of 3 $100 Downtown Dollars gift certificates! Drawing will be held Monday, February 28.
