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 a record-breaking 20 local restaurants to present All-Star Restaurant Week July 10-19.

He recommends saving your receipt if you visit a participating restaurant because you can take it to the Alton CVB and get a free commemorative glass.  You can learn more about the promotion or view the menus for the participating restaurants by following the link below
