The Cool Factor

  • AN Act of courage in Montgomery Sparked a National Movement... Montgomery is home to Mrs. Rosa McCauley Parks. Rosa Parks became a Civil Rights pioneer in Montgomery by courageously taking a stand and not giving up her seat which sparked the Montgomery Bus Boycott. Troy University’s Rosa Parks Museum and Library is a tribute to that memorable movement.
  • Paddles Up!…the Montgomery Dragon Boat Festival was the first in Alabama and is now the largest Dragon Boat Festival east of the Mississippi and one of the largest attended festivals in the River Region.

Wednesday, August 1, 2018

MONTGOMERY, Ala., August 1, 2018 – EatMGM, Montgomery’s annual restaurant week, returns for a fourth year with 10 days of deals, online contests and foodie meet-ups. Organized by the Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce Convention & Visitor Bureau (MCVB), EatMGM runs August 10–19, 2018.

Dining specials and events are listed on the EatMGM website (www.eatmgm.com) and are being promoted on the EatMGM Facebook and Instagram accounts. Local restaurants are offering signature dishes at set prices ranging from $10, $25 or $35 during this exclusive promotional week. In addition to the specials, several “foodie meet-ups” will offer opportunities for diners to gather socially and enjoy local restaurants and bars.

“Montgomery’s dining scene has attracted the attention of The New York Times and Food & Wine Magazine among many others in recent months, and restaurant week gives us all an opportunity to discover the treasures that the national media has uncovered in Montgomery,” said MCVB Vice President Dawn Hathcock.

EatMGM is a 10-day celebration and exploration of the bites, treats and meals that make Montgomery one of the best places in the South to eat. Organizers aim to deepen and strengthen the food community in Montgomery between restaurants, diners, visitors and the media. They seek to raise awareness locally and beyond for the variety and quality of restaurants and food experiences in Montgomery and increase business for local restaurants during the late summer, which can be a slower time for restaurants.
