revised_logoIf you didn’t get enough to eat over the Thanksgiving holiday, Downtown Phoenix has a way you can fill your stomach without emptying your wallet.
This Saturday, Dec. 4, 10 core restaurants will particpate in the First Annual Downtown Dine Around, an opportunity for adventurous (and hungry) day-trippers to experience Downtown’s blossoming dining scene while feasting on an array of menu offerings on the cheap.
From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Dine Arounders can ride the light rail or walk to 10 Downtown restaurants: ICON Lounge, Kincaid’s, 1130 The Restaurant, Brick Pizzeria & Wine Bar, Ghost Lounge, District American Kitchen, Coach & Willie’s, Sing High Chop Suey House, Z Pizza, and Matador Mexican Food Restaurant. Each restaurant will offer three menu items under $3.50, as well as a drink special. And we’re not talking about low-brow fare, either. Dine Arounders are going to be savoring everything from green chili soup and lobster bisque to margherita flatbread, bacon-wrapped meatballs, pesto chicken pasta, and spicy Moroccan lamb sliders. Download and print the full menu here.
Drooling yet?
While the Downtown Dine Around is a FREE event (save perhaps for the $3.50 cost of a light rail day pass) organizers do ask that you spread a little holiday cheer by bringing non-perishable food items to benefit St. Mary’s Food Bank. Food donations can be dropped off at any of the 10 participating Dine Around locations or at the Downtown Ambassadors Information Center on First Avenue and Adams Street.
