Dine Out Boston® returns for 15th year

 

BOSTON – Dine Out Boston® is underway through the 19th of August and again from the 21-26th. It offers a wide variety of opportunities to check out untried places or enjoy favorites at a reduced price – lunch for $15, $20 or $25 and dinner for $28, $33 or $38.

Restaurants offer as many courses as they wish at their selected price! Over 150 restaurants in the Greater Boston area are taking part, including new restaurants in Cambridge and the Seaport District. Those choosing to share their #dineoutboston pictures on Instagram get a chance to win $100 gift cards to participating restaurants. Follow Greater Boston Convention & Visitors Bureau on social channels to learn more.

This is the 15th year for this event. “Dine Out Boston spotlights Boston as one of America’s premier culinary destinations, providing patrons from Boston and afar with a unique opportunity to enjoy exceptional value, variety and hospitality in Greater Boston restaurants,” says Patrick B. Moscaritolo, president & CEO of the GBCVB. “Diners are invited to take advantage of these restaurant deals while taking in seasonal activities – a ballgame, concert, theatrical performance, or museum exhibition, coupled with a Dine Out Boston meal, makes for a classic Boston experience!”

Since 2008, the GBCVB has used this dining program to give back to a different local Boston charity each year. To date, more than $300,000 has been raised for charities through the online auction component. The charitable partner for August 2016 is First Night/First Day, the nation’s oldest First Night celebration. Gift certificates provided by participating restaurants will be up for auction starting August 15, with all proceeds benefiting First Night/First Day.
