The Great Rivers & Routes Tourism Bureau will also be offering a free commemorative, souvenir Restaurant Week glass for anyone who stops by the participating restaurants and purchases a special. The All-Star Restaurant Week glass celebrates baseball season by featuring the Alton River Dragons logo.
