Halifax County Restaurant Week is in full swing! We hope everyone is enjoying the great food and even better deals across Halifax County. If you have yet to dine out this week, you have until Sunday to try one of special menus at one of the eight participating restaurants. If you're still making plans for the weekend, we have a few suggestions and how you can tie Restaurant Week into those (you have to eat, right?).
Friday, September 16
The weekend is finally here! That's your excuse for a lunch out. Head to The Packhouse for lunch (they're also serving a special Restaurant Week Breakfast menu).
If you prefer art to the racetrack, check out Galleria d'arte's latest installment, featuring Suzanne O'Hara and Mat Stafford. The event begins at 6 p.m. and ends at 9 p.m. Grab dinner at Bistro 1888 before or after you peruse the gallery.

The green flag drops at 7 p.m., but before you head to the GCR presents Spaulding Equipment NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour 150 / NASCAR Late Model T-75 / Limited 50 / Pure Stock 30 / Hornets 15 at South Boston Speedway, make a pit stop at Italian Delight to fuel up on their Restaurant Week special.
