VisitHattiesburg is pleased to announce the city’s second annual Restaurant Week scheduled for Oct. 6 –13. Last year’s inaugural event attracted foodies from throughout the region, and VisitHattiesburg expects this year’s event to grow with the addition of new partners and offerings.
Visitors and locals will enjoy the week’s theme, OctoberFEAST, which will feature specialty hamburgers as a nod to “Hattiesburgers.” Participating restaurants will embrace the theme by creating new menu items and specials for the week.
For the seventh year, the DuBard School will celebrate the gift of language in true speakeasy fashion. This event recognizes the 55+ years of service DuBard School has provided to individuals by helping them to “speak easy.”
The DuBard School Speakeasy is a night of music, food, drinks and dancing – all while spreading the good news of the school and the life-changing DuBard Association Method.
