Dorothy George, Sun, Jan 12, 2014

Now that we’ve warmed up from those early January frigid temperatures, celebrate by stopping by a local eatery during Howard County Restaurant Week. It runs January 13th through January 27th, 2014.

Try a restaurant you haven’t been to yet to find a new favorite place for Valentine’s Day. Check out the Restaurant Week page on www.visithowardcounty.com and you’ll find information on which restaurants are participating.

howard county love local restaurants weekA couple I’d like to recommend on the list are: Victoria Gastro Pub and The Elkridge Furnace Inn. I had a delicious birthday meal at Victoria last year and even though my birthday was the previous week, they gave me a $10 off discount to use. The service was prompt and friendly. I’ll definitely go there again. Their website is: www.victoriagastropub.com.

The chef/owner, Dan Wecker, of The Elkridge Furnace Inn has been honored as a “Howard Hero” by the Howard County Chamber of Commerce. You can find out more about which organizations he has supported at their website: www.elkridgefurnaceinn.com. When I worked in their office before coming to BA Auto Care Auto Care American, I saw first-hand his personal oversight of the business overall and the kitchen especially. His creative talents make any meal a special occasion.

Remember to check restaurant hours and whether reservations are needed.
And if you’ve had a good experience, compliment them online. Thanks for supporting your local economy!
