If you don't have a feverish toddler in the house, then you should go take advantage of the Howard County Restaurant Weeks that run through February 2.
The winter version of the Howard County weeks has about two-dozen restaurants participating -- mostly upscale places and national companies.
I'm not huge on the weeks. Most years, the specials aren't big enough to make me eat somewhere that I didn't plan to eat anyway. But I see several places that were already on my list to try again, including Grille620, Aida Bistro, Iron Bridge, etc.
Plus, it's fun! It's an excuse to go out to dinner tonight or tomorrow or some other night in the next two weeks. Go celebrate something. Celebrate that you don't have a feverish toddler in the house. Trust me, you should drink to that.
Check the restaurant list. I'm clicking fast during Lil' Chow's nap, but I don't see an easy way to check out all the offers. So please add a comment if you've seen a deal that looks good.
