Dine Around 2020 a great chance to try something new

Local restaurants, hotels create special meals and staycation combos for off-season

One of the most popular and far-reaching food and beverage and accommodation events in Victoria is returning to town, as Dine Around & Stay in Town 2020 offers special deals on unique local dining and staycation experiences.

Kicking off the two-week celebration of the city’s hospitality industry (it runs Jan. 17 to Feb. 2) is the annual Dine Around Gala Launch, Jan. 16 at the Victoria Conference Centre. There attendees will find tasty bites from over 50 local restaurants, craft beers and VQA wine, musical entertainment and more.

Getting many of the Dine Around participants in one room is a great way to build excitement for the following two weeks, when you’ll find the chefs, sommeliers and cicerones back on their home turf serving up some amazing dishes and beverages, many created specifically for this event.

The format sees participating restaurants offer set price three-course meals, generally for $20, $30, $40 and $50, depending on the venue. You can find more information on who’s involved and their menus, visit tourismvictoria.com/eat-drink/dine-around.

Tickets for the gala (5-7:30 p.m.) are $65 each and are available online at ticketrocket.co.
