A fresh event with a budget-friendly ticket price of $30 per person. Restaurants from around the Twin Cities offer menu and beverage tastings, a competition for the event’s best heels, and live entertainment. It’s the Party with a Purpose!
We are proud to announce that in 2012 Winter Restaurant Week will bring even more to the table, as Mpls.St.Paul Magazine and Metro Meals on Wheels have created a community parternship to connect the diverse groups of foodies and diners in the Twin Cities to the work of Meals on Wheels.
|Blizzard Box Blitz||In one fast-paced day we organize a volunteer experience like none other, packing 5,600 shelf-stable meals into 2,800 boxes to be delivered to MOW recipients across the metro. The boxes provide nutritious meal options in the event a regularly meal delivery is interrupted by our Minnesota weather. Watch a 30-second Blitz video!|
