Calling all foodies!

Block Island Restaurant Week takes place from June 10 to 16 this year and lots of restaurants on the island offer great specials, oyster tastings, wine tastings, beer tastings and other fun food events.

The Block Island Chamber of Commerce is hosting the Block Island Restaurant Week and the Blue Ticket drawing.  Participating restaurants offer a two course Prix-fix lunch and a three course Prix-fix dinner. In addition, stores, restaurants, hotels, inns will be participating in the Blue Ticket Drawing.  Each time you spend $25 in a participating business, you will receive a blue ticket entering you into a drawing for cash prizes at weeks end. On Sunday, June 10, there will be a fun food event "A Taste of the Island" at BIMI from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.   Sample the fare of a dozen island restaurants, pick up menus and talk to the chefs.  Proceeds of this event benefit Helping Hands, the Block Island Food Bank. Because you will need to work up an appetite to fully take advantage of the week, other specials during the week include discounts on bikes, kayaks, mopeds and cars.
