Seeking Guest Bloggers for Hudson Valley Restaurant Week Fall 2012


Hudson Valley Restaurant Week — where restaurants will be serving 3-course lunches for $20.95 and 3-course dinners for $29.95 — runs from Nov. 5-18. As we’ve done in the past, we’re looking for guest bloggers to write about their HVRW meals on Small Bites. If you’re interested, please read the Ground Rules for Guest Bloggers here and, if you agree with them, send me an email at and list your top five choices of restaurants.

Here’s a look at a video from the spring HVRW from The Valley Table magazine, which organizes the event.
