Restaurant celebrates Earth Hour

Beverly’s On Main Grill House owner Beverly Wood is celebrating an extended Earth Hour on March 28 with a candle-lit dinner.

The restaurant will be serving a special menu from 5-10 p.m., and keeping with the tradition of Earth Hour all lighting will be extinguished.

The World Wildlife Federation (WWF) held its first Earth Hour in Sydney in 2007. The organization asked all individuals and businesses to turn off their lights for one hour in a united protest against global warming.

At last count, 1,429 cities and towns, including Wasaga Beach, in 80 countries have signed up to participate.

Wood held a similar event last year and it was a sell-out.

This year, she is offering a special menu, including steak and lobster, linguini with seafood marinara and a special version of her famous schnitzel.

The evening will feature live entertainment by a local jazz guitarist.

The restaurant seats 90 people. Call 429-0179 for a reservation.

Earth Hour officially takes place between 8:30 and 9:30 p.m. on Sat., Mar. 28. To sign up and get more information visit www.earthhour.org.
