On behalf of the GW Birthday Celebration Committee, we are inviting all Alexandria area restaurants to register for the 2018 Cherry Challenge! As you know from your participation last year, this event is designed to generate buzz for Alexandria restaurants, boost customer traffic, encourage chefs to get creative and excited about their special offerings, and enable us to offer a tasteful event that keeps George Washington's memory alive in his hometown! In the words of one participant, "The GW Cherry Challenge is fun, fun, fun. Our customers love it!"
To participate, all you need to do is create and serve one or more menu items that include CHERRIES. You may use fresh cherries, dried cherries, canned cherries…whatever form you desire. Categories are Beverage, Appetizer, Entree, and Dessert. You will feature your creation(s) from JANUARY 28 through FEBRUARY 11, 2018. For more information, please review this flyer.
To register, click here.
Last year, the Cherry Challenge reached 40+ participating restaurants! As you know, we promote the contest through social media (specifically Facebook and Twitter) just prior to the first day of the campaign and running through the duration of the campaign.
We are so grateful for the support of Alexandria restaurant community and we want to make this event meaningful for all the establishments that participate.
