Looking for someplace different to try for that special date or meal out with the family?

Tourism Victoria and the BC Restaurant and Foodservices Association’s Victoria branch are heading into their second weekend for the annual Dine Around Stay in Town. On now through Feb. 4, the off-season promotion is designed to give area residents and visitors alike a chance to test out local eateries for the first time or visit favourite spots for a choice of three-course meals specially crafted for the occasion.

Meals prices are evened off at $20, $30, $40 and $50 with each restaurant offering one or more of the price points.

Local hotels are also in on the act, offering special deals starting at $89 a night, aimed at the staycation market.
