If the snow has melted and the wildflowers are starting to pop, that's a sign that it's time to head to Crested Butte and chow down. The third annual Crested Butte Restaurant Week kicks off June 19, 2013 with some two dozen eateries puttin' on the ritz and about 20 lodges opening their doors for the first-of-the-season event in the southern Colorado mountain town.
Last year, 26 restaurants and 18 lodging locales signed up for the week's gourmet celebration. Participating restaurants will offer multi-course dinners for $88.85 for a party of four, or $22.21 per person. Multiple courses will be offered on every menu. Restaurants may offer several choices, and some may include wine or other beverages in the fixed price. Restaurants will also have their usual a la carte menus available at regular prices. Establishments that do not serve dinner will provide multi-course lunch promotions for $8.85.
Special lodging rates will be available every night throughout Crested Butte Restaurant Week starting at $88.85 per bedroom, per night.
