Lake George Region Restaurant Week is in progress, running through Saturday, Sept. 16.
The Lake George Regional Chamber of Commerce & CVB announce the participating restaurants in the second Restaurant Week of 2017 are: Adirondack Pub & Brewery, the Algonquin, the Barnsider Restaurant, the Boathouse Restaurant, Ciro’s at Rocky Ridge, Giovanna’s on the Lake at The Georgian, the Inn at Erlowest, the Log Jam, the Lobster Pot Mario’s Restaurant, Mama Riso’s and Sushi Yoshi.
The first Restaurant Week this year took place in June.
“We’re lucky to have a restaurant selection in the region that is rich in variety and led by such culinary talent,” said Chamber Marketing Director Amanda May Metzger. “You can really see their creativity in the menus provided by these 12 excellent establishments.”
During this special week, dining patrons can enjoy a prix-fixe three-course meal for only $20.17, not including tax or gratuity.
“As we see from our restaurant week surveys, this special week is an introduction for many people to new restaurants. We also see quite a few people from out of town filling out surveys,” Metzger said.
The menus are available at www.lakegeorgechamber.com.
The Adirondack Trust Co. Community Fund will accept grant applications from eligible nonprofit charities until Sept. 30.
Grant information and application forms may be obtained from the Adirondack Trust Company Community Fund website at ATCCF.org/nonprofits.
The fund was established in 2009. Officials said the resulting yearly Lend-a-Hand grants help improve the quality of life and address issues of common concern in the area. In 2016, the Community Fund allocated $42,270 toward 23 Lend-a-Hand grants. The grants funded local, nonprofit organizations’ programs in such diverse areas as veterans’ outreach, mental health services, wildlife education, homelessness prevention, youth services, and the arts.
Grant recipients will be announced by the fund’s Independent Advisory Committee in December.
Over the past six years, the Community Fund has provided 101 grants in excess of $193,000.
