Get your stomachs and taste buds ready to be bedazzled 8,885 feet above sea level!  The Crested Butte Restaurant Week is happening June 3-10 and it will be highlighting local eateries and lodging establishments.  

Crested Butte, CO is not only renowned for its wonderful mountain conditions in both winter and summer months, it has the most noteworthy restaurants and fantastic, historic lodging that includes bed and breakfasts, inns, lodges and hotels, all of which are surrounded by exquisite mountain views.  As Michael Carlton of The Denver Post puts it, “Crested Butte has more fine restaurants per capita than any other town in the U.S.”

Participating restaurants will offer multi-course dinners for only $88.85 for a party of four, or $22.21 per person.  Multiple courses will be offered on every menu and restaurants may offer several options.  Restaurants will also have their usual a la carte menus available at regular prices.  Some may also include wine or other beverages in the fixed price.

Establishments that do not serve dinner will provide multi-course lunch promotions for $8.85.  Special lodging rates will be available every night throughout Crested Butte Restaurant Week starting at $88.85 per bedroom, per night.  As a note:  All prices exclude taxes and service. If you are not picking up on the $88.85 theme yet, I’ll clue you in — it’s all in celebration of Crested Butte’s 8,885 feet above sea level.

And if all this wasn’t enticing enough for you, there will also be screening the movie Fresh! which is a new component for this eating and lodging week of Crested Butte heaven.  The movie is scheduled for June 9 at 6 p.m. at the Center for the Arts and proceeds will benefit the local foods advocacy group, Paradise Food Project.

If you become a fan of the Crested Butte Restaurant Week’s Facebook Page right now, you will be entered in winning a gift certificate for $88.85 to the restaurant of your choice in Crested Butte or Mt. Crested Butte! The drawing will take place on June 2.
