April "Pink Plates" Specials At Local Restaurants

More than 22 Howard County restaurants will offer "Pink Plate" specials in April to celebrate spring and to raise money for Howard County Hospital's Claudia Mayer Cancer Resource Center.

Howard County Tourism is running the promotion as part of a broader "Blossoms of Hope" program.  Each restaurant will create its own "Pink Plate" offering, including special menu items or signature desserts.  Participating restaurants run from AIDA Bistro to Venegas Prime Filet, and the full list appears on a county Web page.

In addition, there are some specific events like an "Japanese Poetry & Sushi Dinner" on April 9 at Elkridge Furnace Inn and a "Champagne Ladies Luncheon" on April 16 at Turf Valley.

I can't find the actual "pink plate" offerings on the restaurant Web sites that I checked.  If anyone hears about specific offerings, please comment below.

Here's what Venegas Prime filet sent in a email newsletter yesterday:

Think Pink!

Venegas Prime Filet is participating in Blossoms of Hope's Cherry Tree initiative to raise Breast Cancer awareness. Our special offering to benefit the Claudia Meyer Cancer Resource Center will be available every day in April.
