My friends and I took advantage of the superb Dine Around Seattle deal this past Thursday evening. The concept behind the name is "30 restaurants for $30," essentially 30 notable Seattle area restaurants participate in offering a gourmet meal-deal: an appetizer, entree, and dessert for $30. Partcipants are eligible to select from 3 options for each course. This Dine Around Seattle program is offered Sundays-Thursdays throughout the month of March (and I believe November as well).
This is extremely exciting for all of us budget-conscious foodies, who would to dine at these fine dining establishments, had we the petty cash to do so. Taking advantage of this opportunity, five of my friends and I ate at the Barking Frog, at Willows Lodge in Woodinville (home of Seattle area wine country). The food was amazing, delicious...everything I hoped it would be, and more! We even managed to order a few glasses of wine and still wrap up the evening in under $50 per person!
Not sure if other cities have similar offerings, but if you happen to frequent our lovely city in March or November, definitely take advantage if you have the appetite!
