Dine Out Vancouver 2010: Giveaway

Comments 224

Dine Out Vancouver returns as local restaurants offer up reasonable prix-fixe three-course menus from April 26th until May 6th.

Since 2002 this event is aimed at helping Vancouverites experience culinary creations in their hometown, find new favourite spots to grab a bite, and maybe even treat themselves to a high-dollar dining experience that comes with a low bill.

There are 208 restaurants and eateries participating this year which will be announced on Monday April 21st. The three price points for their set menus will be $18, $28 or $38 per person. Restaurants will offer wine pairings and recommendations for each course on their menus as well.

You can find out more by joining the Tourism Vancouver’s Facebook page and following them on Twitter. Restaurants and menus will be posted online next week.

To build the buzz, Tourism Vancouver has offered me two $75 gift certificates for participating restaurants as giveaway prizes. One is for Milestones in English Bay and the other is for The Keg at Park Royal.

To enter to win one of two gift certificates, please leave a comment below or post the following on Twitter:

Enter to win 1 of 2 $75 restaurant gift certificates from @Miss604 & @MyVancouver

I’ll draw two winners on Wednesday April 21st. Gift certificates are valid for one year after June 1, 2010 (not during Dine Out).

Update The draw will take place at 1:00pm today. I’ll draw one winner from the Twitter entries (for the Keg) and the other from comments (for Milestones).
Update The winners are Westend Gypsy (comment entry) and @csads (Twitter entry)
