As of Friday, Dec. 1, several restaurants, coffee shops and eateries, have announced their participation in the special deals to showcase the county’s restaurants and eating places during the week, Sunday, Jan. 21-Saturday, Jan. 27. Officials with DeSoto County Tourism, which is promoting the week, say more restaurants will be added ahead of the Jan. 21 start date.

DeSoto County attracts thousands of people each year for concerts, sporting events, and shopping, and when they do, they also learn about the variety and exceptional cuisine offerings that have them returning.
