Pittsburgh Restaurant Week has become a great passion of mine. As a food blogger, I always wanted to be in the business of sharing all of Pittsburgh’s great restaurants with my friends. That circle of “friends” grew further than I could have imagined when I started Pittsburgh Restaurant Week and had the first celebration in 2012. Just today I had the pleasure of speaking with a restaurant week organizer from another city. She belongs to a large organization where Pittsburgh Restaurant Week is just one of many things they do.
I want to share that I am humbled by the way in which not only Pittsburgh has embraced the program that I’ve put my time in to grow and foster, but further humbled to hear she has been monitoring the Pittsburgh Restaurant Week program and looks to use Pittsburgh as a model to improve her own celebration.
Anyone who works with me on Pittsburgh Restaurant Week knows how much effort I put in and that I’m always trying to make thoughtful decisions to further the program’s success. With that, if you have any ideas on what I can do to improve PRW, never hesitate to send them along. You can think of your idea not only helping your local community, but helping restaurants weeks across the nation. Just one idea can go a long way.
