We did not make it to Dante's Restaurant, McDonald's, Piccadilly Pub, Victory Cigar, Leo's Ristorante, or KJ Baarons Fine Wine as most of these are just to separated from he other restaurants, and we were just to full to walk any further. This was our second year, and I would say Last years was better selections of food, but I ended up just as full. A great way to try all the restaurants on Shrewsbury St. Hope to see some of you there next year.
