Huntsville Restaurant Week is here with luscious budget-friendly offerings from many of Huntsville’s favorite eateries. But for the calorie conscious among us, there’s a dilemma: how do I take advantage of all this great food without that moment on the lips heading forever to the hips? You head to Huntsville’s ample selection of parks, trails and greenways!
The Happy Tummy and browsing Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment
If you’ve got a bigger appetite, Happy Tummy at Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment is offering up a $15 lunch of pizza sampler. Try the Mini Later Tater Pizza, Mini Jane Says Pizza, Mini Pep in Your Step Pizza, Mini You've Really Got a Hold on Me Pizza, and Mini Vampire Killer Pizza. You'll also get a dessert of their Mini Chocolate Cream Cheese Turnovers.
Lowe Mill A&E, located in an old boot factory, hosts over 140 artist studios and independent businesses that will keep you walking around at a slow pace for the 4 hours it will take to burn off that meal.
Domaine South and walking Big Spring Park or downtown
For the lighter side, Domaine South is offering up a $15 lunch of Tomato and Red Pepper Soup and Local Melon & Peach Salad. Fortunately, Domaine South is steps away from Big Spring Park. With so much walking to do, you’ll want to circumnavigate the lake and head all the way down the walkway to the end at Pinhook Creek. Then walk back along the historical canal and up the steps to do some browsing and shopping downtown. The Clinton Row Project and Harrison Brothers Hardware Store are stops that should definitely be on your list!
Phuket Thai and running the Village of Providence Greenway
If you want to walk on the spicy side, Phuket Thai restaurant in The Village of Providence has the dinner meal for you. For $30, you can start with the Edamame or Fried Pot Stickers. For your entree, pick from the Almond Cashew Chicken, Thai BBQ Chicken, or Kao-Soi. End the meal with fried ice-cream with raspberry sauce.
You’re going to want to do something a little more vigorous before or after that meal! Leave your car parked where it is and go for a run on the Providence section of the Indian Creek Greenway. About 2 ½ hours at a 5 mile per hour pace should do it. That section of the greenway is only .8 miles long, so you’ll get a chance to see the greenway several times.
However you choose to burn off your indulgence, don’t miss the great specials being offered by restaurants around town for Huntsville Restaurant Week! Lots of options for walking, biking, hiking, running, golfing and more are on tap in Huntsville, Alabama.
