WAYNE, NJ – A special celebration of Wayne’s finest eateries is happening across our town this upcoming week. It’s an event that is very much like a ‘restaurant week’ where Wayne restaurants will be offering special meals and deals to incentivize people to come to their establishments and eat outside, or pick-up dinner or have meals delivered.  It’s called Wayne Eats out and it’s happening between July 20 and July 23.

Christian Sees, one of the founders of the new Wayne Chamber of Commerce has been putting the event together for some time. “We're going to have a week of focus on our awesome restaurants and eateries here in Wayne,” said Sees. “They really need something like this.

Restaurants in Wayne were ramping up for the opening of indoor dining in early July and unfortunately, that didn’t happen.”

The event, conceived by the new Wayne Chamber of Commerce, is to encourage the community of Wayne to support their local restaurants and help these struggling businesses stay afloat.  

So far, Sees has enlisted 18 local restaurants to participate with more coming on board.

“Some of them are going to have some great special specials for you,” Sees explained. “And we're also excited to have some pretty cool giveaways; which I think are pretty substantial.”

Part of the structure of the Wayne Eats Out week is engagement by the community on social media; sharing pictures or videos of people enjoying their meals at various Wayne restaurants.  The Wayne Chamber of Commerce is asking people to post on their Facebook page, and from those who post, random people will be picked out to receive prizes.

“Maybe you normally eat out once per week,” said Sees. “If you can bump it up to two, three, maybe four times that would be fantastic.”

The list of participating restaurants is below and will be updated frequently.  Check in on the Wayne Chamber of Commerce Facebook page for updates and the list of special meals and deals being offered. 

Have Fun Eating Out, Wayne!
