13 Oct HBCRA Announces 2nd Annual Hallandale Eats
THE HALLANDALE BEACH CRA ANNOUNCES SECOND ANNUAL HALLANDALE EATS RESTAURANT SHOWCASE ENCOURAGING COMMUNITY SUPPORT FOR LOCAL EATERIES
The Hallandale Beach Community Redevelopment Agency (HBCRA) is proud to present the second annual Hallandale Eats – Restaurant Showcase, taking place October 29 – November 14, 2021. This year’s theme, A Celebration of Restaurants in Our City will showcase the City’s wide range of diverse cuisine and dining experiences. The two-week long event is part of the CRA’s BE Local Initiative, which was created to encourage Hallandale Beach residents, as well as visitors to “buy and eat locally” in effort to support the local economy.
Throughout 2020 – 2021 many Hallandale businesses including restaurants, eateries and caterers experienced substantial loss in revenue or were forced to close their doors due to the COVID-19 crisis. As the pandemic progresses many of the remaining businesses are in the process of recuperating from these challenges. As a direct response the HBCRA developed an innovative and aggressive approach to providing support for local businesses including initiatives such as Hallandale Eats Restaurant Week, The BE Local Initiative, Order In-Hallandale Beach Campaign, and a $500,000 small business stimulus fund which assisted Twenty-four (24) local businesses in remaining open and/or overcoming financial obstacles due to the pandemic.
Hallandale Eats 2021 will feature several of Hallandale’s top eateries participating free of cost. The event will allow patrons to enjoy special discounts, prix fixe menus, and other specials. In addition to free digital promotions, participating restaurants will also receive branded delivery bags, printed collateral and support from the CRA that will encourage the community to not only patronize the event but consistently shop and eat locally in Hallandale Beach.
According to City Manager and CRA Executive Director Dr. Jeremy Earle, “This year’s theme for Hallandale Eats is aptly titled A Celebration of Restaurants in Our City. We’ve created a fun way for residents and visitors to utilize a two-week window of time to safely and conveniently get a little taste of everything. We encourage all Hallandale residents and people from surrounding areas to shop and eat locally.”
