Weekend Roundup August 12-14

This weekend kicks off one of my favorite times of year – Huntsville Restaurant Week!

It’s the perfect excuse to get out of the kitchen and into some of the wonderful locally-owned restaurants in Huntsville & Madison County. But what about the kids? We put together a list of participating restaurants and their HRW Specials that also have a kid’s menu to make it easy for you to #DineHsv as a family.

But wait, there’s more! It’s prime Farmer’s Market season in Alabama and there’s something fresh waiting for you in one of the many markets going on now. Don’t see something that you like in our list below? Check out the full Event Calendar for more options.

Who’s ready to look at some free and cheap fun to be had in Huntsville this weekend?
