Creating a captivating resume that sparkles bright enough to catch an employer's attention is an art on its own terms.

With the ramp up pressure kids experience at school and the need to sign up to too many extracurricular activities, it’s no surprise how the number of teens employed have been declining over the past decades.
There are many benefits (and risks) of adolescent employment. The decision to allow your teen to have an after school job should be a well thought-out family decision based on how well they can manage responsibilities, time management and money.

"We are so excited that Gwinnett’s restaurant scene is growing and changing," explains Lisa Anders, Executive Director of Explore Gwinnett. “Gwinnett Restaurant Week is designed to show off some of the best offerings in Gwinnett. We encourage locals and visitors to use this promotion to discover something new.”

Anders is excited about this year's mix of restaurants, noting that "the large majority of our restaurants are independently owned, and we worked very hard this year to incorporate some new establishments that many people haven’t tried yet.”

Most participating restaurants require reservations for Restaurant Week, and Anders suggests making them early to confirm space. "A number of our restaurants sell out each year, so the earlier the better for making reservations."

Reservations for some restaurants can be made online and others by phone. Diners can view all Gwinnett Restaurant Week menus at

New this year, social media savvy diners will have the opportunity to get small prizes during Restaurant Week by checking in via the Yelp! App. Valid only at participating restaurants and details can be found on the website.
