You can pick up a map of all participating restaurants at any Founders Bank & Trust branch, or at Ferris Coffee and Nut, at 227 Winter Avenue NW in Grand Rapids.

The Grand Cocktail contest also returns this year. Participating restaurants can enter two different drinks. One is for the “Best Creative Cocktail” and the other is for the “Best Manhattan.” The drinks must include Woodford Reserve craft bourbon. The public can taste the cocktails and vote online, and qualified judges are also selecting first and second-place winners in each category.
