Name: 2017 Restaurant Registration - Bites Around the Block
Date: October 3, 2017
Time: 5:00 PM - 10:00 PM CDT
Event Description:


Bites Around the Block (formerly OctoberFeast)  is an opportunity to market your establishment and bring new customers through your door! This event is a tasting tour specifically organized to highlight the RNBA's restaurant members.  Participating venues provide small portions of two of their signature dishes along with a glass of wine or beer for each guest to enjoy. What better way to showcase your restaurant than by sharing the ambiance and food of your restaurant on a small scale?
Event attendees are assigned to a specific route so you know exactly when your guests will arrive. Group sizes will be 25-50 people and each group will stay for no more than 30 minutes at each restaurant between 6-9 PM. 

Your restaurant will be marketed to all event participants (over 300 expected) while only actually serving up to 50. You will have an opportunity to request a specific group size and/or time slot so you will be able to serve your regular customers, too.

After the event you will receive contact information for all the attendees (not just the ones who came to your venue.) This is a great way to identify people who love to go to restaurants and want to know about yours.

There is no fee to be a featured restaurant on the Bites Around the Block route. Please see below for participation requirements.
