If you are looking for a reason to get out of the kitchen and sample some of the area's cuisine, the Alton Regional Convention and Visitor's Bureau has launched a new promotion called


Alton Restaurant Week. There are no passes for diners to buy, coupons to carry or cards to punch. Lunch or dinner will be offered at a fixed price, at the participating restaurant of your choice between January 22 through the 28th.  Alton Regional Convention and Visitor's Bureau President Brett Stawar says 10 restaurants are participating.
