What To Do This Weekend 2.29-2.31

It’s our last weekend of January and we are one month closer to warmer weather. We still don’t have a ton of events lined up but that doesn’t mean you can’t support your local businesses from afar. It is the perfect time to order carry out or shop online cozied up next to a fire.

Amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, our local restaurants need your support more than ever. In order to safely support our restaurants this winter, we’re bringing you the Champaign County Area Restaurant Week | Takeout Edition, January 29–February 6, 2021!
For their fifth year, we’re reinventing Restaurant Week in order to meet safety guidelines established by the Illinois Department of Public Health and the Champaign-Urbana Public Health District.
Like past years, this will be a nine-day celebration of local food where you can discover our award-winning food scene, from authentic cuisine from Laos and Zambia, to Italian dishes, Asian-inspired cuisine, or classic American dishes, Restaurant Week will satisfied all our hunger pangs.
While the flavors will still impress, this year will look a little different. In place of the prix-fixe menus, we’ve ask our participants to create menus that will work for you at home. These include:
• Solo Meals
• Meals for Two
• Family Packs
Menus will be available in early January, but start planning now so you can show your love and support for the local restaurants that make our community Outside of Ordinary!

The Indiana Home Show is a vibrant marketplace where you can shop for home-related products and services, experiences stunning displays to help inspire your next home project, connect with industry experts and enjoy an informative presentation from renowned local and international home professionals. This years event will take place at the Indiana State Fairgrounds & Event Center Friday from 10am-6pm.
