During the week of February 19-28, 2016, Calvert County held Restaurant Week. Everyone was encouraged to go out to the participating restaurants and have lunch or dinner. The diners were asked to fill out a comment card or they could do it online. There were 27 restaurants who participated and 305 comment cards were received. During Restaurant Week six $25 gift cards were awarded to those participating at various restaurants.
During the Calvert Board of County Commissioners meeting on March 22, 2016, Joyce Baki and Katie Brittain brought a gift basket to award to the grand prize winner. The basket was filled with wine, glasses, gift cards and a two night stay at the Holiday Inn.
The County Administrator, Terry Shannon, was asked to draw a comment card from the basket for the grand prize. She drew the name of Robert Toyr.
