Spread Some Love This Weekend

Posted Feb 15th, 2019 in Weekend Wish List


Even though there’s only one Valentine’s Day each year, you can spread some love in Downtown Wilmington at any time. Everyone loves food and there are close to 100 eateries downtown that offer a variety of tasty treats for you to sample.

You can experience high-end dining, international fare, southern cooking, succulent seafood, casual eating or sweet desserts. Whatever your choice, the food is guaranteed to tantalize your taste buds and the downtown dining scene will warm your heart. Some downtown restaurants are also offering special date night menus this weekend. With such a bounty of dining establishments to choose from, you can share the love with others by nominating your favorite in a fun contest.

Last year, Wilmington Downtown Inc held the inaugural Downtown Wilmington Restaurant Madness where the public nominated the top 16 downtown food establishments to be entered into a bracket just like the college basketball tournament. Three further rounds of voting resulted in the field being narrowed to two restaurants. The final vote resulted in Fork N Cork winning the title of 2018 Downtown Chompion.

The madness is back again so you can nominate your favorite downtown eatery. You have from now until March 3rd to check out Downtown Wilmington’s fabulous dining scene and show some love for your preferred restaurant.

Every vote counts so join the fun and spread some love this weekend!
