Le Originals Flower Necklace
Visit Lafayette-West Lafayette is excited to announce our "Holiday Shopping Contest" to our 2 great cities.  The competition started on Monday, November 5, and we want to share why each business who has donated to these packages is so fabulous! One great winner will win the following package worth over $700!
  • Guests will receive top-notch service at the Hilton Garden Inn where you will get freshly baked Otis Spunkmeyer cookies upon check-in and will stay in nicely decorated rooms with very comfortable beds.
  •  Bruno's is famous for its "Bruno Dough" but even better yet is the friendly waitstaff who make your visit fun and relaxing.  They have every kind of pizza pie from pepperoni to peanut butter and jelly, and have started a weekly specialty pizza that has unique toppings!
  •  Triple XXX or Route 66 offers some of the best burgers (The Duane Purvis All American is a fave!) in the nation in a retro style diner atmosphere.
  • Red Seven Bar & Grill equals hip, trendy and delicious cuisine.  Try their pumpkin spice martini which is perfect for the fall season.
  • What is better than a box of homemade decadent chocolates during the holiday season?  NOTHING!  Kathy's Kandies is making a specialty box just for you.
  • People's Brewing Co. always has 6 or 7 specialty brews always on tap that have the perfect amount of hops to make your mouth say "thank you".
  • Silver Dipper offers shakes, ice cream sundaes, cones and more.   You may ask, why are they special?   Because even in the dead of winter when it is below zero degrees and a foot of snow in Indiana I will make an ice cream run to Silver Dipper. It is just that good!
  • Willow Stained Glass creations are so beautiful and creative they bring life and energy into people's homes.  Bonus: Michelle offers stained glass classes for novices and for those more advanced.
