If you’re asking how organizers can top last year’s event and what’s new . . .hmmm – you’ll just have to like/follow the event on social media to see what’s planned for the tens of thousands of diners who can eat out once, twice or every night! So, how does it work? It’s easy! Check out the website, open your calendars and start making reservations at as many restaurants as you can fit in between Monday February 26th through Sunday, March 4th! Some of Toledo’s best local restaurants, many that define the art of dining in the region, are again participating in RWT. Each has developed special menus with cuisine sure to delight the palate – again this year is the opportunity to support the cause when ordering from either the RWT restaurant’s special or regular
Again this year, the proceeds from RWT support Leadership Toledo, a nonprofit organization that promotes leadership development for area youth and adults. “The response for RWT from the community has been so positive which is no surprise – after all, the region is well-known for our incredible restaurants. Our goals are to increase awareness of the many unique dining opportunities that are only found here, stimulate business for restaurants, and raise awareness of the educational mission of Leadership Toledo. We’ve had a lot of fun making RWT better each year – we’re proud that we’ve been able to keep all the popular features while adding a few new ingredients! We guarantee again this year that everyone will enjoy how we meshed what has worked well in the past with a few new ideas,” offered Leadership Toledo’s Executive Director Anna Malone Toney. “We can’t wait!”
