The first ever Indulge Nelson — sponsored by the Nelson Star and {vurb} — was a great success for diners, local restaurants and the Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy for which funds were raised during the weeklong event. Earlier this week some of the participants dropped by the Star office with their envelopes of cash that will be donated to the Alliance. Participating restaurants included (L-R) Rob Little (Louie’s Steakhouse and Lounge and Uptown Tavern), Barry Warren (Ric’s Lounge and Grill), Tanya Finley (Finley’s Irish Bar and Grill), Trevor Ditzel (Relish), Megan Cole ({vurb} editor), June McEwen (Bibo), Anne Kwan (King’s) and Joan Exley (CBAL).
