The "Big Eat" Returns  


Back for its seventh year, the Downtown Winston-Salem Partnership and participating downtown restaurants are proud to present the return of "The Big Eat." Every Tuesday night, beginning January 6 until January 27, more than 30 great downtown restaurants will offer 50 percent discounts off of their signature dishes.


There has been such a positive response to the Big Eat promotion since its inception 2009, that it was a no-brainer to bring back the event in 2015. The Downtown Partnership received numerous e-mails and phone calls from people who participated in the last six years and who were asking to bring it back for 2015. A list of participating downtown establishments as well as the signature dish for each Tuesday can be found at http://www.dwsp.org/bigeat.htm
