Restaurant Week

Aug. 22-28

Eat well and do some good with this charitable effort benefiting the Three Square Food Bank. It’s easy: During Restaurant Week, many of the city’s top restaurants will create special prix-fixe menus, ranging from about $20-$50. An amount from each purchase goes to help Three Square battle hunger in Southern Nevada. Beginning Aug. 8, check out the list of participating restaurants at helpoutdineout.org. Get an early start on Restaurant Week with a kick-off event at Mesa Grill in Caesars Palace ($75, 702-731-7778). Since its 2007 inception, Restaurant Week has raised $852,000.

Comedienne and KKLZ 96.3-FM personality Carla Rae will host. $75, biteatthemuseum.com
