Make a weekend out of trying several restaurants and take advantage of the lodging specials offered by Harbor Shores on Lake Geneva and Lake Lawn Resort, valid during Dine Around the Lakes only. How about a fun and unique date night and add Lake Geneva Clue Room to the plans with their special Dine Around the Lakes discount? It doesn’t have to be all about the great food when there’s things to do in the area as well to add to the experience! Though yes, it’s primarily all about the food!

To help plan where you’re going to go and get a sneak peek at what you’re going to be eating, go to – peruse the restaurants, look at their menus, visit their websites, and plan, plan, plan your schedule to get to as many as possible! I certainly can’t think of a better way to keep me out of the kitchen then going to all these great restaurants and letting their great chefs cook for me! And you can’t beat the prices for the quality of food and ambiance you’re getting! You could easily treat me to a lunch or dinner (or both) without breaking the bank – hint, hint, hint!

New this year is the addition of Charity Day, Tuesday, Nov. 7, where restaurants have the opportunity to partner with a local charity of their choice, and decide what level they would like to donate at, such as a percentage of the day’s proceeds or a specific dollar amount per meal, etc. This is a way to not only showcase the restaurants and their food, but also support local charities at the same time. Four of the 21 restaurants are participating on Charity Day: The Boat House Bar & Grill, The Geneva Inn Restaurant, Gino’s East, and PIER 290. The Boat House Bar & Grill is partnering with Lot of Love, giving 10% of the day’s proceeds. Lot of Love’s focus is supporting the caregiver community as they care for others, but tend to put their own needs aside. The Geneva Inn Restaurant is partnering with the Friends of Big Foot Beach State Park, giving $1 from every meal purchased. Friends of Big Foot Beach State Park is a non-profit volunteer group that raises funds to help and educate the community about the vast resources available at the State Park. Gino’s East is partnering with Dan Green’s Touch A Life, Heal A Heart Foundation, giving 10% of the day’s proceeds. The Touch A Life, Heal A Heart Foundation is dedicated to providing strength and hope to kids with cancer, health and wellness aid to low-income Walworth County residents, and hope and help to Armed Forces personnel in need. And lastly, PIER 290 is partnering with Santa Cause, giving 20% of the day’s proceeds. Santa Cause supports existing charities in Walworth County and performs random acts of kindness throughout the community.
Dine Around The Lakes 2017 is sponsored by Lake 96.1 WLKG, Lake Geneva Country Meats, Harbor Shores on Lake Geneva, and the Walworth County Visitors Bureau.
