Now is the perfect time to take a stroll downtown: the evenings are turning chilly, making it perfect weather for a light jacket, warm drink, and the soft glow of sunset as it washes over the many buildings that line Main Street.

This month’s Third Friday Art Walk in Wilkes-Barre is upon us and, as always, it’s bringing a variety of cultural events in the city’s galleries, restaurants, boutiques, and businesses.

No matter your taste – the itch to try some new cuisine, the need to lay eyes on beautiful artwork, the urge to hear original local music – there’s something for everyone.

This month’s Third Friday brings with it another event, the first of its kind: Wilkes-Barre Restaurant Week.

The Downtown Wilkes-Barre Business Association, Diamond City Partnership, Humford Equities, and NEPA Geeks are putting on the event that allows local folks to sample cuisine from area restaurants that they may not have previously had a chance to dine at.

Those participating include Anthracite, Barnes & Noble, Bart & Urby’s, Boscov’s, Bottlenecks, Cafe Toscana, Froyo Mania, IBOP Coffee Company, III Guys Pizza, Katana, King of Kings Gyros, Maers BBQ, Mimmo’s Pizza, Oyster Restaurant, Pete’s Place Middle Eastern Restaurant, Rodano’s, S&W Restaurant, and Senunas’ Bar and Grill.
