Hungry for Some Deals?

By Erin

The D.C. Office of Tax and Revenue has declared a sales tax holiday from this Saturday, Aug. 6, through Sunday, Aug. 14, on back-to-school purchases. If you've been itching to go on a shopping spree, dust off your wallet and spend away. You can save that 5.75 percent on school (or office) supplies, clothes, shoes and accessories. The offer only applies to individual items costing $100 or less, but there is no limit to the total purchase price.

On another discount-related note, Restaurant Week runs through Aug. 7 with three-course lunches and dinners costing $20.05 and $30.05, respectively. Although it may be difficult to snag reservations at this late date, there are a few kernels of hope. Several local restaurants will participate in DiRoNA Restaurant Week. This event, sponsored by the Distinguished Restaurants of North America and Share our Strength, features three-course prix-fixe lunch and dinner menus from Aug. 22-26 with a portion of proceeds benefiting the fight against child hunger. Also, 1789 will keep up the spirit of Restaurant Week with a $35 three-course dinner special through Sept. 14.

Hi Erin, any idea what's on 1789's menu for their prix-fixe dinner through 9-14?

I hear some restaurants have extended restaurant week - like Butterfield 9. Do you know of what other restaurants have done the same?
