Are You Ready to “Step Up To The Plate”? Restaurant Week is Sept. 7 – 15 

Tulsa-area restaurants offer prix fixe specialty menus to support the Food Bank


 Tulsa, Okla. – In conjunction with September’s national Hunger Action Month, area restaurants are stepping up to the plate to fight hunger in our community by participating in Tulsa’s seventh annual Restaurant Week Sept. 7 – 15.


Currently, there are 34 restaurants signed up to offer three-course, prix fixe meals and donate 10% of Restaurant Week menu proceeds to the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma’s Food for Kids program. Restaurant Week proceeds will be matched by the George Kaiser Family Foundation up to $25,000.


Restaurant Week patrons can select from a variety of three-course lunch and dinner menus designed to suit any taste and budget. Restaurants will offer a lunch menu priced at $12.95 per person and a dinner menu at one of three varying price points: $25 per person, $35 per person or $35 for two. Each meal will feature an appetizer, entrée and dessert and all prices exclude tax, gratuity and beverage.


Tuesday, Sept. 10 is Restaurant Week Celebrity Waiter Night. On this special night, local celebrities are paired up with participating restaurants to help serve patrons enjoying the prix fixe dinner menu.


The Food Bank’s Food for Kids program provides a backpack of food each week during the school year to more than 4,800 students in Tulsa County at risk of going hungry during the weekend and holidays. To date, Restaurant Week has raised more than $210,000 for the Food Bank’s mission of eliminating food insecurity.


“We are always happy to participate in Restaurant Week,” said Amanda Williams, marketing and communications manager for the McNellie’s Group. “We’re proud to be a part of this yearly tradition. This year, our new McNellie’s South location is joining in on the fun!”


An updated list of participating restaurants, their Restaurant Week menus and contact information will be available on the TulsaPeople iPad/iPhone app beginning Sept. 1. The app can be downloaded for free from the Apple iTunes store.


“We love when Restaurant Week rolls around,” said Heidi Ewing, community engagement manager at the Food Bank. “It’s always inspiring to see great Tulsa restaurants step up to help our community.” 


This year, Restaurant Week is hosting a social media contest. Show your love for Restaurant Week by posting pictures on social media. Use the hashtag #TulsaRW on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and you could win a dining certificate to one of your favorite Restaurant Week restaurants.


The event’s presenting sponsors are TulsaPeople magazine and OMNI Air International. Additional sponsors include the George Kaiser Family Foundation, News on 6, KRMG, Jarboe and Waller & Company Public Relations.


“We look forward to Restaurant Week every year,” said Jim Langdon, publisher of TulsaPeople. “It’s a great time to visit different restaurants and try new dishes all while giving back to such a worthy cause.”


TulsaPeople created Restaurant Week in 2006.

  • A 5-year-old boy is recovering at a hospital after being bitten by a rattlesnake in DeBary, Florida.  >> Read more trending news Volusia County investigators said Tampa resident Elijah Vaughn, 5, and his family were at a relative's house on Fort Florida Point Road on Saturday after leaving a funeral.  Vaughn and his mother went outside so the boy could play on the jungle gym in the yard, deputies said.  When Vaughn approached the jungle gym, he walked underneath the platform and saw what he thought was a toy snake.  As the boy reached for the snake, it bit him on the right index finger, according to a police report. His mother rushed Vaughn to meet with deputies and he was taken to Central Florida Regional Hospital, where he received anti-venom treatment, investigators said. Vaughn was then taken to Arnold Palmer Hospital for Children.  Officials said the boy's swelling had not spread down his arm and was primarily on his hand and wrist.  The snake, believed to be a pygmy rattlesnake, was caught and killed.
  • France's attempts to counter the radicalization of its young people are in turmoil, with a group home intended to turn them away from Islamic extremism empty, the head of a highly publicized nonprofit convicted of misuse of public funds, and plans to segregate prison inmates suspected of harboring jihadi ideas abandoned. The results are both disappointing and unsurprising, according to a French senator who co-wrote a recent report highly critical of an effort she says was devised in haste and has been a waste of money. 'We spread money around because we didn't have time and we had to communicate something, we had to show something,' said Sen. Esther Benbassa, whose report last month concluded that the country's de-radicalization efforts so far were largely ineffective. 'The time that this takes to work is long, very long.' The backtracking takes on added significance as recent attacks, including last week's rampage in London and the previous week's assault on soldiers at Paris' Orly airport, were carried out by ex-convicts who may have been radicalized behind bars. France is not the only country reconsidering how it responds to radicalization. Britain's contentious Prevent program, which seeks to identify residents at risk of being radicalized, has come under criticism by rights groups and an expert for the United Nations who said it stifles free speech.
  • Leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. elections vowed at a joint news conference on Wednesday to conduct a thorough and bipartisan probe, clearly setting themselves apart from their House counterparts, who are locked in a bitter, partisan struggle over the course of their review. “The committee will go wherever the intelligence leads us,” said Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC), the Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee. “We’re here to assure you – and more importantly the American people who are watching and listening – that we will get to the bottom of this,” said Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), the top Democrat on that panel. Without going into much detail on who might be in for questioning when by the committee, Burr and Warner set out the basics of their probe, saying seven full-time staff members are spending weeks going through documents of the Intelligence Community on what Russia did in 2016. Sen. Mark Warner on the Senate intel committee Russia probe: 'We're gonna get it right' https://t.co/unNRqnks5q — CNN Politics (@CNNPolitics) March 29, 2017 Burr described the review as, “challenging to say the least,” as both men made clear this was turning out to be maybe their most important duty – ever – in the Congress. “This is one of the biggest investigations that the Hill has seen in my tenure here,” said Burr, who was first elected to the Congress in 1994. Sen. Burr on intel committee's Russia probe: “We weren’t given a free pass to do a witch hunt.' https://t.co/fo3n6WsdDC — NBC Politics (@NBCPolitics) March 29, 2017 The cooperation among members on the Senate Intelligence Committee stands in stark contrast to the infighting and finger pointing going on across the Capitol on the House Intelligence Committee. “Our investigation is stalled,” said Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA), as he blamed panel chairman, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) for canceling a variety of meetings set for this week. “I think he needs to recuse himself,” Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT) said of Nunes, as Democrats furiously contend that the sprint by Nunes to brief President Trump last week on intelligence – which he still has not shared with his committee – signals something is wrong. On the other side in the House, Republicans don’t see anything wrong with the work of Nunes, and argue Democrats are pushing conspiracy theories that have no evidence behind them. “This is media speculation being fueled by Democrats,” said Rep. Peter King (R-NY). Rep Turner (R-OH) a Republican on the House Intel Cmte asked on @MSNBC if Chairman Nunes should recuse himself: 'absolutely not' — Alex Moe (@AlexNBCNews) March 28, 2017 But over on the Senate side of the Capitol, some fellow Republicans have made clear their displeasure with the actions of Nunes over the last week – and at today’s news conference – Burr and Warner made clear they were running a different operation. “We’re not asking the House to play any role in our investigation, and we don’t plan to play any role in their investigation,” Burr told reporters. Thursday will bring a public hearing for the Senate Intelligence Committee that will focus on what Russia has been up to on the internet, using the opportunity to warn European nations what they may face when they hold elections in coming months. “I think it’s safe by everybody’s judgment that the Russians are actively involved in the French elections,” Burr said, giving one example.
  • Moments after opening fire on three suspected burglars inside his home just outside Broken Arrow Monday, Zach Peters called 911. [HEAR THE 911 CALL HERE] KRMG has obtained a recording of that call, in which Peters tells the call taker he shot two men, and “I believe one of them’s shot bad.” Peters thought he had only hit two of the suspects when he opened up with AR-15 after hearing them break into the home. But as it turned out, all three of them died on the scene. Wagoner County deputies identify them as Maxwell Cook, 19, Jacob Redfern, 17, and Jaykob Woodruff, 16. A fourth suspect, who reportedly drove the trio to the home with the intent to burglarize it, never entered the house. Elizabeth Rodriguez, 21, later turned herself in at the Broken Arrow Police Department. The District Attorney is reviewing the case to see if Peters might face any charges, but investigators indicate they think that unlikely. 
  • A paralyzed man was able to feed himself for the first time in eight years, after doctors implanted sensors in his brain that sent signals to his arm. Bill Kochevar was paralyzed from the shoulders down after a cycling accident in Cleveland in 2006. To help him move again, in 2014, doctors surgically placed two tiny implants into his brain to pick up signals from neurons from the area that controls hand movement. The signals are relayed through external cables to a computer, which sends commands to electrodes in his arm and hand muscles. After first practicing with virtual reality, Kochevar was then able to drink coffee through a straw and eat forkfuls of mashed potatoes and macaroni and cheese on his own. 'It was amazing,' the 56-year-old Kochevar said. 'I couldn't believe I could do it just by thinking about it.' But after years of being paralyzed, Kochevar's shoulder wasn't strong enough to lift his arm, so doctors also provided Kochevar with a robotic arm support for extra assistance. Kochevar's case is detailed by his doctors in a paper published Tuesday in the journal Lancet.
