BRW 2024 – Winter Edition is Feb. 22-March 3. Please visit the Eat/Drink tab to view participating restaurant hours and menus.

How do I participate in BRW?

Just grab family and friends and head to your choice of participating restaurant, food truck or bar, and order from their special BRW menu!

How much does BRW cost?

Prices vary by restaurant and meal. Price points range from $5 to $50 per person for a wide variety of multi-course, prix-fixe menus. Be sure to check each business’s menu for specific details and offerings (when menus are added).

When and where can I see each restaurant, bar or food truck’s menu?

We will have all menus available by the first day of BRW if they have submitted their menu. Menus can be viewed by visiting the Eat/Drink tab on the website. If a menu is not available, that means it has not been finalized or submitted by the restaurant yet, so be sure to check back!

Does BRW offer vegetarian, vegan or gluten-free options?

Yes. While not every restaurant is able to cater to each dietary preference, you can search our participant list and sort by dietary preference to view restaurants offering menus in line with your lifestyle.

Does BRW offer children’s menus?

Menu offerings are ultimately left to the discretion of each restaurant, bar or food truck to create and prepare. If a participant does offer a children’s menu, you will see it when viewing the restaurant’s menu in our Restaurants tab. You can also choose to order from the business’s regular menu during BRW, including children’s menus normally available at restaurants.

Will events take place in BRW 2024 – Winter Edition?

Our Events page has all the details, so be sure to check that out here! To kick off the week, the annual Preview Party will be held Tuesday, July 18 and will allow foodies to taste and see what restaurants will have to offer during the week. The beloved Wineology event will return this year on Tuesday, Aug. 1 featuring products from our food and beverage sponsors. This year’s BRW will bring back the Food Truck Pop-Up Park providing a central spot for BRW participating food trucks to offer unique BRW menus to the public.
