; Loyalty is a good thing, yes. But laziness? Not so much. So tell the truth: Do you eat at your favorite restaurant three times a week because you love it, or because you're stuck in a rut?
;; Jump off the safe-dining treadmill and explore new territory May 4-10 during Orlando Weekly Restaurant Week, the first event of its kind here in O-Town. The brilliant part is, instead of a "taste of" affair where you stand in the hot sun nibbling a tiny sample off a paper plate, Restaurant Week serves the whole experience: ambience, service, and three courses, thank you very much, for a prix fixe of $25 or less – at the dining establishment itself. Explore available menus on our website – dishes like Fifi's Patisserie's black-cherry braised short ribs, Brix Eurobistro's well-edited cheese flight or White Wolf Cafe's cedar-plank salmon (a personal favorite) will tease your appetite. All this for a price you might pay for an entree alone.;
; Participating restaurants include K Restaurant, Baldwin Steakhouse, Raglan Road, Graze and 30 more. Restaurant Week is a fixture in many tourist-destination cities; here's hoping this grows into something that attracts out-of-town visitors, too. For now, though, it's all yours.;
