Alabama Restaurant Week

Alabama Restaurant Week

Alabama Restaurant Week showcases the appreciation our locals and visitors share for Alabama restaurants and their staff. This culinary event unites Alabama’s diverse range of cuisine in a 10-day celebration held August 14-23, 2020 throughout the state. Many of our Alabama restaurants have been severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, so we encourage everyone, both visitors and locals alike, to show their support for Alabama’s restaurants during Alabama Restaurant Week.

Restaurants are the places where we don’t simply just eat, but so often celebrate our most cherished memories. They are there for us for first dates, anniversaries, birthdays, gatherings of family and friends, special occasions, memorable vacations or just in times we needed a little comfort. Over the past several months, they’ve demonstrated significant support for their employees and communities while simultaneously facing operational and financial challenges. Now, more than ever, they need our support. Patrons can show support through a variety of ways.

              

Dine-In, Takeout or Delivery

Many Alabama restaurants have opened their dining rooms to the public with additional precautions in place to keep you and your loved ones safe. However, if you are not comfortable with dining in, we encourage you to take advantage of takeout, curbside pick-up and delivery options so you can continue to satisfy the cravings of some of your favorite dishes. If possible, be sure to order directly from the restaurant, rather than third-party delivery services. This will not only eliminate fees, but it will also allow you to stay up-to-date on any seasonal menu offerings and specials.

Other Ways to Help

No deed is too small, and every little bit helps. Show your support and appreciation by eating out or taking out often while traveling in the state during Alabama Restaurant Week. Not sure where to start? Check out the 100 Dishes to Eat in Alabama.

Buy Gift Cards

A simple way to show your support for restaurants is to purchase gift cards that you can use later, giving you something to look forward to when you are ready to dine in your favorite restaurants again.

Buy Merchandise

Most restaurants have a variety of merchandise that you can purchase to show your support. With some restaurants selling t-shirts, hats, pottery, cook books and more, there are plenty of items to fit everyone’s interests.

Buy Products Online

Most restaurants have a variety of merchandise that you can purchase to show your support. With some restaurants selling t-shirts, hats, pottery, cook books and more, there are plenty of items to fit everyone’s interests.

Call and Ask How You Can Help

Many small, family-owned restaurants do not have merchandise or digital gift cards to sell, so reach out to them and ask how you can help! This may be a donation, helping someone on staff or raising funds for employees.

Advocate for Your Favorites

Lastly, use your personal channels to advocate for your favorite Alabama restaurants. Write a good review on the restaurant’s business pages, share your meal on your social media channels and tag the restaurant or chef (and us, too!), or use word of mouth to inform others of the restaurant’s offerings.

4th of July at Little River Canyon National Preserve

LRCF April 2020 2

Little River Canyon News Release
For Immediate Release – June 29, 2020
Contact – Matt Switzer, matthew_switzer@nps.gov, (256) 845-9605
4th of July Weekend at Little River Canyon National Preserve
Fort Payne, Ala. – The Independence Day weekend is one of the busiest weekends of the
year at Little River Canyon National Preserve, and the National Park Service would like to
give you the following tips to help you make your visit as enjoyable as possible.
PARKING
The Little River Falls parking lot is usually full by 10:00 AM (CST), so those who would like
to enjoy the view of Little River Falls or would like to hike the trail to Little Falls (aka:
“Martha’s Falls” and “Hippie Hole”) should plan to arrive early. Jacksonville State
University is generously offering additional parking at the Little River Canyon Center
overflow parking lot for visitors to this area as the need arises.
The parking areas at the overlooks along the Little River Canyon Rim Parkway / AL
Highway 176 are 30-minute parking only, and parking at Blue Hole is only for visitors to
that location.
HAVE A BACK-UP PLAN
Parking areas will have National Park Service staff and volunteers conducting parking
control to help visitors in parking quickly and safely. Should your favorite area at Little
River Canyon National Preserve not be available due to a full parking lot, please have a
back-up plan in mind. Little River Canyon offers numerous recreational opportunities,
many of which you can find on our website at nps.gov/liri.
Other opportunities can be found within a relatively short drive of Little River Canyon
National Preserve, to include DeSoto State Park, Buck’s Pocket State Park, Lake
Guntersville State Park, and Weiss Lake in Alabama, and Cloudland Canyon State Park and
James H. Floyd State Park in Georgia.
WEATHER
The National Weather Service forecast for Little River Canyon National Preserve on
Independence Day weekend is calling for a chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms
EXPERIENCE YOUR AMER ICA
The National Park Service cares for special places saved by the American people so that all may experience our heritage.
throughout the weekend. Afternoon thunderstorms are common this time of year and
recreating outdoors within 10 miles of a thunderstorm can greatly increase your chances of
being injured by a lightning strike.
Heavy rainfall, not just at Little River Canyon but as far up-river as the Chattanooga,
Tennessee area, can result in rapid changes in the water level of the river with little or no
warning. Flash flooding does not just increase the flow of the river, but can send large,
harmful debris downriver with it. Visitors are highly encouraged to monitor weather
conditions during their time at Little River Canyon.
COVID-19 SAFETY
While visiting Little River Canyon National Preserve, it is your responsibility to protect
yourself and others from COVID-19 exposure. Little River Canyon National Preserve and
the National Park Service have been taking extraordinary steps to implement the latest
guidance from the White House, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and
state and local public health agencies.
The CDC has made the following recommendations to help people recreating in parks and
open spaces to prevent the spread of infectious diseases:
• Visit parks close to your home
• Prepare before you visit
• Stay at least 6 feet away from others
• Play it safe around and in swimming areas
• DO NOT visit parks if you are sick or were recently exposed to COVID-19
• DO NOT visit crowded parks
• DO NOT use playgrounds
• DO NOT participate in organized activities or sports
ALCOHOL, GLASS CONTAINERS, and FIREWORKS & FIRECRACKERS
Alcoholic beverages, glass containers (for food or beverages), and fireworks and
firecrackers are NOT permitted at Little River Canyon National Preserve.
The National Park Service works to reduce risks, but your safety is in your own hands. We
here at Little River Canyon National Preserve would like visitors to come prepared, stay
alert, and return home safe with memories of a wonderful visit.
For more information, please contact Park Ranger/Public Information Officer Matt Switzer  at 256-845-9605.
