The "Big Eat" is Back!

Need an excuse not to cook tonight (or any Tuesday in January-February)? Look no further! The Big Eat is back in downtown Winston-Salem with a long list of restaurants participating (below) with great specials. It's a great way to try a new downtown restaurant each week. 

I am chilled to the bone from this cold snap, so for tonight, I'm eyeing some Hutch & Harris Moravian Pie or Mozelle's tomato pie and cheese grits, with some Camino Bakery muffins for dessert (and breakfast the next day)!

The Big Eat is back!

Every Tuesday night from January 3 - February 28, you will save up to 50% OFF the signature dish at several Downtown restaurants. The Big Eat Special is not available on Tuesday, February 14th. *Please see Restrictions and other important details at the bottom of this page that apply to the Big Eat Specials.
