February is a short month but a great one; it’s the month where you start to count down to spring; love in the air midmonth and discounts at participating restaurants at the end of the month keep your spirits high to make it to March!
Mark your calendars for Feb. 26 through March 2 for the city of St. Charles Restaurant Week where you have the opportunity to get 20 percent off at more than 40 different restaurants in the St. Charles area.
