Little Rock Restaurant Month kicks off this week and we can't contain our excitement. In case you forgot, each August, the Little Rock Convention & Visitors Bureau (LRCVB) promotion offers delicious specials to help you find your new favorite restaurant. 

Each Little Rock district is assigned a specific week, and you have seven days to enjoy all the neighborhood has to offer.
