One of our favorite annual promotions is back, and we’re already drooling just thinking about it.

Once again proving that August isn't just about sweat stains and school supplies, the Little Rock Convention & Visitors Bureau (LRCVB) is bringing back Little Rock Restaurant Month for its eighth  year. 

Just like last year, Restaurant Month is all about neighborhoods. Restaurants will offer weekly deals and specials to get locals out on the town, trying Little Rock's newest spots along with the staples. A different district of the city each gets a week to wow you with its menu prowess. For more info, head to DineLR.com.
