EDITOR'S NOTE- It's that time of year: Restaurant Week

Just six months after its successful summertime debut, Restaurant Week is back. Only this time there are 18 restaurants to choose from during the week of January 25-31.  This is a Hook-sponsored event that we cribbed from New York which allows cost-conscious diners to try a three-course meal at some of the more upscale restaurants in town for just $26. And this year $1 of each meal goes straight to the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank. So check out the special insert to get some ideas. And chow down!
