They've done it again!

For the past several years, Camden Stovie and Colton Storla have been celebrating Cedar Rapids Restaurant Week in a unique way. Instead of visiting a few of the participating restaurants over the course of the ten days, they visit ALL of them. And it doesn't take them ten days, either. They eat at all the restaurants in ONE DAY!

This year, Camden and Colton weren't alone on their mission to eat at 19 restaurants in just one day. They were joined by another big supporter of local restaurants... Joe Sample!
