Why have only a seven-day week when 10 days is so much more? Downtown Fort Collins' Bon Appétit Week is back to treat your tastebuds.

It used to be called "Restaurant Week," but now it has a new name: Bon Appétit Week. It does sound more fun; not just eating at restaurants, you're eating great, unique menu options throughout the 10-day "week."
