It’s that time again folks – Vermont Restaurant Week is upon us! This year, the event is taking place at restaurants near you between April, 24 and May, 3. Time to loosen your belts and wallets for a good cause!
Here’s the long and the short of it: You go to a local restaurant, order some delicious creation from their prix fixe menu, chow down and that restaurant donates 10% of the proceeds to the Vermont Foodbank to help out our less fortunate neighbors.
See Vermont Design Works and dozens of players in our State’s tech industry at the 2014 Vermont Tech Jam. This two day event combines a tech expo and job fair to showcase the amazing work of our state’s most innovative companies, non-profits, and education institutions. Find us in booth A07 in Memorial Auditorium on October 24-25, 2014.
Vermont Stage Company’s 2014-15 season gets underway in about 6 weeks, but the play posters we designed for this season’s shows are ready now! This is actually the seventh year our friends and long-time clients at VSC have commissioned Vermont Design Works for their play posters, a project our designer always thoroughly enjoys. Check out what we put together for this season’s 4 new plays and then go order your Vermont Stage season subscription – shows sell out fast!
With less than a week left before the 2014 Vermont Chamber Business & Industry EXPO, we thought it was time to tell you a bit about the event and what we’ll be doing there this year. In addition to being exhibitors again this year, VDW owner Andrew Allen will be giving a presentation entitled “8 Web Essentials You Need Before Social Media”. Check out the seminar for a crash course in online marketing and then stop by booth 148 to talk about your upcoming web development or marketing project!
If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance that it’s because you’ve seen an unfamiliar dish popping up on menus at your local delis and restaurants and you’re dying to know just what “poutine” is. Today we answer that question while also taking a look at the interesting search results Google delivers on this topic.

While many of us have still been waking from our long winter slumbers, rubbing our eyes in disbelief as the mercury finally creeps above the 32°F mark, local foodies have been salivating with anticipation of the 5th annual Vermont Restaurant Week for months, and the wait is almost over. Break out your Thanksgiving Pants if you have ‘em because the VT Restaurant Week 2014 will be held this year from April 25 through May 4.
In the summer of 2012 we wrote about our partnership with Vermont Sustainable Jobs Fund to create the Vermont Food System Atlas, which we’re proud to announce launched earlier last year! As you may remember, VSJF envisions the VT Food Atlas as essentially being the information hub for their Farm to Plate Initiative.
VDW is OPEN today, Friday, February 14, 2014. We have a limited crew in the office with others working remotely. Please be patient with us as we return messages. Note, we will also be open on Monday, President’s Day, February 17th.
In the meantime, enjoy the white stuff and take a moment to clear your furnace vents and neighborhood fire hydrants.
We’re gearing up for another Code of BTV Hackathon. This one is especially close to our hearts as we’ll work with our friends involved with the Vermont Farm to Plate Network at NOFA Vermont’s Winter Conference this weekend.
Admittedly it seems a bit early to be talking about New Year’s Eve, but given the traffic we’ve seen pouring in to last year’s post over the last several months, it seems that folks are already clamoring for information about New Year’s 2014 Celebrations. We’ll likely need to add to this post as additional events are announced, but we hope this can serve as your Vermont Near Year’s 2014 event calendar.
