40+ Restaurant & Retail Week Specials To Try Out

GO Month is in full swing and that means Restaurant and Retail Week–during the second week of October (Oct. 8 – 14)–is almost here. We’ll Go Eat, Go-Tique, and Go Experience Gaston’s restaurants and shopping options. Essentially, businesses and restaurants have teamed up across Gaston to provide residents and visitors a ton of shopping and dining specials for the whole week. From three course meals to a countywide GO-Tique Crawl, Restaurant & Retail Week gives you the perfect excuse to get out and try something new. Plus, in the spirit of GO Month, Gaston’s downtown blocks are stringing up green lights to give you “the green light” to come out and experience the region in a whole new way: just follow the light!
