The 8th Annual Cherry Challenge will be held Jan. 28 through Feb. 11. In the spirit of the old cherry tree tale, local restaurants are participating in a culinary contest. Patrons of the participating restaurants can vote for their favorite cherry drinks, starters, entrees and desserts.
During the contest period, each patron who orders an item may submit a ballot on which they rate the item on taste, creativity, and presentation. At the end, the ballots will be collected and tallied.
A "Frequent Cherry Diner Award" will go to the diner who buys and rates the greatest number of Cherry Challenge entries. For a complete list of participating restaurants visit www.washingtonbirthday.net/cherry-challenge
Sponsors of the contest include Halt Buzas & Powell, Ltd. and Dale Digital Printing.
