Annual Dine Around campaign nearing end in Comox Valley

This is the final weekend of the fourth annual Dine Around Comox Valley, celebrating the extraordinary bounty from the farms and sea.

This is the final weekend of the fourth annual Dine Around Comox Valley, celebrating the extraordinary bounty from the farms and sea. It wraps up Sunday night, March 17.

Why: This is your last opportunity to experience the celebration of cuisine of the Comox Valley at great Dine Around prices.

And unlike other dine out events around the countryside, Comox Valley enjoys the unique situation of having fresh produce on the table year round — which is a chef’s dream.

With national and international attention being directed to this Valley with its extraordinary field to fork, field to flask and sea to table cuisine, this would be the time of year to get in on the deals before summer comes.

This year, 23 restaurants are participating including several new places and several who have undergone renovations, so Dine Around also provides an opportunity to check out what is new, what has happening and get caught up in the buzz of the season.

This is also the last weekend to take advantage of making a mini-getaway adventure: They are called ‘stay-cations’ — and for good reason.

Have a vacation in town means no travel planning hassles and no home chores. Simply stay, relax and enjoy the entire evening and let someone else do all the clean up. There is also the option of shuttle service arrangements that can easily be made from any of the four participating hotels.

Accommodation partners:

•    The Travelodge Courtenay: $79/night.

•    Old House Village Hotel & Spa: $99 to $129/night

•    Best Western Plus – The Westerly Hotel: $79/night

•    Comox Valley Bed and Breakfast Association: starting from $90/night.
