  • Stop, It’s Curry Time!: Find a restaurant that’s serving a curry dish during #vtrestoweek and snap a spicy pic with your plate.
  • You look radishing: Dress to the nines and dine with a hot date. Ask your server to take a photo to document the special occasion.
  • Mustache You a flavor: Several Vermont Restaurant Week participants have been nominated for a James Beard award — more than once. Visit their restaurant and take a photo with someone who has a beard (besides you or your teammate).
  • Meals on wheels: When you ride your bike to a restaurant, the calories don’t count, right? Take a video en route to your favorite restaurant and tell us where you’re going.
  • Fork in the road: Road trip! Jump in your car and find an actual fork in the road. Take a Boomerang of you in the fork holding a fork! Inception.
  • Here’s a tip: Give a generous tip to your server during #vtrestoweek. We appreciate all the hard work put in by the restaurant staff! Take a photo of the check, please!
  • Green Eggs and Ham: Grab your brunch bestie and chow down on the most important meal of the day —  breakfast. Visit any of the participating restaurants serving brunch or breakfast and take a slide show of the two of you hammin’ it up while wearing green.
