Please confirm with each restaurant their hours and restrictions for both lunch and dinner promotions. KCRW promotion hours may differ from regular hours.

5) Why does it take so long for menus to get posted? 

We understand that seeing the menus ahead of time is an integral part of the planning process. Due to seasonality and availability of ingredients, some restaurants may not be able to provide accurate menus until closer to the event. The KCRW website crew tries to input menus within 24 business hours of receipt from each restaurant.
