The Eat Lafayette campaign, brought to you by the Fly Lafayette Club, is in full swing. Now through September 1st we are helping to highlight 80 one-of-a-kind, locally-owned restaurants in the Lafayette area.

The campaign gives locally-owned restaurants the opportunity to showcase their cuisine. And add in the fact that you can get some great money savings deals, you will no doubt find yourself dining at many of these fantastic restaurants over the next few weeks.

In addition to the great food and awesome deals, you can also win a trip of a lifetime! Go to any of the Eat Lafayette participating restaurants to enter to win two round trip tickets from Lafayette, Louisiana to a Hard Rock Hotel Resort in the Caribbean. It is an "all inclusive" - that means everything is free: food, snacks, top shelf drinks, room service, daily and nightly entertainment and more.

I recently had the great pleasure of visiting one of the aforementioned 80 participating restaurants. Check out my trip to Guidry's Reef on Pinhook Rd here in Lafayette.
