Virginia Beach Restaurant Week will be January 13-20. On Thursday there was a Kickoff event at the convention center, with a few speakers and a cookoff by local chefs.
A few statistics were given. 48% of the population has worked in the restaurant business at one time or another. 32% had their first job in the restaurant business. (Yes, I'm one of the 32%.) In Virginia Beach, restaurant sales are $840 million per year.
