The heavens have heard the wishes of my wallet.
Fourth Street Live, Louisville’s little slice of big-city entertainment, will offer up Restaurant Week from Aug. 8 through Aug. 15, according to Business First of Louisville. The following restaurants will have lunch and dinner specials during the week:
- Maker’s Mark Bourbon House and Lounge
- Ri Ra Irish Pub
- Sully’s Saloon
- TGI Friday’s
- The Pub
- Sports and Social Club
Here’s the blurb from Business First: “Each participating restaurant will have various $10 lunch items and dinner items from $25 to $30. Customers will receive a $5 gift card for lunch purchases and a $10 gift card for dinner purchases, according to a news release issued by Fourth Street Live management. Reservations are recommended for weekend dining at the participating restaurants, according to the release.”
Fourth Street Live’s event reminds of Washington, D.C., a city that offered (along with great brunch options) their own Restaurant Week, a glorious seven-day promotion during which commoners like me could eat at expensive restaurants because they offered great deals. It sounds like budget-conscious folks will be able to do the same thing in downtown Louisville.
I’d highly recommend taking advantage of this offer during the week. Fourth Street Live can get a little *ahem* interesting on the weekends.
