Decadent Dine Around

Madison Erhardt

Dine Around Thompson-Okanagan is back for another year.

The festival officially kicks off Wednesday and runs through to February 10.

For the next three weeks, more than 70 restaurants throughout the BC Interior are featuring a three-course menu for $20, $30, $40, $50 or $60.

Guests can visit the participating restaurants and ask for their Dine Around menu.

In addition to Dining Around ,more than 20 hotels are offering stay packages within the BC Interior. Some include dining credits to their on-site restaurants.

"For restaurants and hotels it is really slow this year, this program was created about 15 years ago to help restaurants in what is traditionally a slow time of year. This year with the pandemic still going and people isolating more at home we are seeing restaurants are quite a bit slower than they normally are. It is probably more important than ever," said coordinator Christina Ferreira.

The BC Restaurant and Foodservices Association are also adding more incentive to the community.

By taking part in Dine Around, you can be entered to win $350 in restaurant gift cards.

A list of participating restaurants and their menus can be viewed online at www.dinearound.ca.
