Los Alamos, New Mexico—where discoveries are made—is known for its groundbreaking science, rich history, and for being the Gateway to Three National Parks. In addition to the area’s array of outdoor adventures and offerings for science and history buffs, Los Alamos is home to several acclaimed local dining and drinking establishments offering everything from craft brews to exceptional cocktails, fine dining, delectable sweets, and local twists on classic dishes. With a theme of “Take Out to Help Out,” Los Alamos and White Rock restaurants are joining together with the Los Alamos Creative District to celebrate supporting local March 14–18.
“We invite all to discover the perfect spot to rejuvenate and refuel during your travels and support local restaurants during the Los Alamos Take Out to Help Out Week,” said Kelly Stewart, Marketing Manager for Los Alamos County. “Dining and drinking can be one of the most memorable parts of a trip and also the most telling of a town’s style and culture. It’s that precious time, in between activities when one can regroup, reenergize and process the experience. In Los Alamos, we’re thrilled to have a variety of offerings. At each stop, you’ll find something different to delight your taste buds. Eating or grabbing a drink in Los Alamos gives you a chance to enjoy our welcoming community, while also exploring dynamic local flavors.”
Los Alamos County boasts more than 40 food and beverage establishments, which can be identified in the local Restaurant Guide. During the week of March 14, and beyond, the Los Alamos Creative District encourages locals and visitors to try new businesses from this list. If participants post photos on Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #LosAlamosTakeOut (for takeout orders) or #DineInLosAlamos (for in-restaurant experiences) and tag the restaurant, if applicable, they’ll be entered to win local gift cards.
