Mark your calendars! Tourism Vancouver’s wildly successful Dine Out Vancouver returns beginning April 26th. With the success of previous years, you’ll definitely want to start making reservations when they open on Monday, April 19th to get that table you’ve always wanted at some of Vancouver’s best restaurants.
Dine Out Vancouver 2010 is your opportunity to sample three-course dinner menus at some 207 Vancouver-area restaurants at the delectable price points of $18, $28 or $38 (not including taxes, alcohol and gratuity).
The eighth annual promotion runs for 11 days from April 26 to May 6 dishing up great value and the opportunity to “taste-drive” a smorgasbord of Vancouver restaurants. Participating Dine Out Vancouver restaurants and their menus will be revealed by Tourism Vancouver on Monday, April 19, at which point consumers can start making reservations online through http://www.tourismvancouver.com. Diners are encouraged to book early as spots at many restaurants are snapped up quickly.
Tourism Vancouver first launched Dine Out Vancouver in January 2003 as a way to drive business to local restaurants during the industry’s low season. The promotion is normally held in January/February each year but with the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games happening at the same time, the dates for this year’s event were moved to the spring.
Despite the later dates, Dine Out Vancouver 2010 has set a new record for restaurant participation with 207 restaurants registered, up from 194 in 2009 and just 57 in 2003.
Tourism Vancouver chair Rick Baxter says that Dine Out Vancouver’s success is far reaching. “The promotion is about offering value to consumers and generating business for local restaurants,” said Baxter. “But it’s become more than that. Dine Out Vancouver has become one of Vancouver’s most anticipated annual events and, in its eight years, has helped to reinforce Vancouver’s reputation as one of the world’s best places to eat.”
Along with the opportunity to taste some of Vancouver’s best menus at great prices, pay for your meal with your Visa card and automatically be entered for a chance to win one of 52 restaurant gift certificates valued at $3,900.00. In addition, vote in the Best Bite Awards at participating restaurants and be entered to win a 9 day /8 night roundtrip journey onboard the Rocky Mountaineer and more worth over $11,000.
