Major League Baseball's All-Star Break means a week off for baseball players across the nation. Here in the Riverbend it will take on a completely different meaning as the Alton Convention and Visitors Bureau teams up with nine local restaurants to present All-Star Restaurant Week July 12-21.

CVB President Brett Stawar says this week will be a little different than the restaurant week that was held in January.

Stawar Comments

Restaurants included in the "starting lineup" for All-Star Restaurant Week include Castelli's at 255, Franco's Restaurant, Mississippi Half Step, State Street Market, Tony's, My Just Desserts, Rib City Alton, Pere Marquette Lodge, and the Grafton Winery and Brewhaus.

In addition to the savings at local eateries, Stawar says you will also have an opportunity to win an All-Star getaway, which includes 4 St. Louis Cardinals tickets, a night at the Best Western Plus Parkway, and a gift certificate to one of the participating restaurants.
