“Dine Out Escondido!
Escondido Follows Up Successful First Year with Enhanced Culinary Program
January 25-31, 2015
In conjunction with Visit California’s annual “California Restaurant Month” during the month of January, Escondido will be hosting its second “Dine Out Escondido!” culinary tourism program promoting over 20 local restaurants.
This year, “Dine Out Escondido!” will offer a change of strategy from last year. “Following a hugely successful first year, we’re excited to give our restaurant partners a more focused program by building momentum for a 7-day program,” said Katherine Zimmer, Tourism and Marketing Administrator for the City of Escondido. Zimmer also mentioned that these dates align well with San Diego Restaurant Week, which occurs the week prior to the Escondido program.
Visit Escondido is confident last year’s high promotional reach during “Dine Out Escondido!” (Over 750,000 people through social media alone) will prove just as impactful in 2015 through the highly anticipated program.
The City of Escondido is the only city in San Diego’s North County to be involved in this important economic program. Forty cities participated statewide in 2014.
Everyone can savor the diverse culinary flavors of Escondido during “Dine Out Escondido!” by taking advantage of this opportunity to visit their favorite restaurants, discover new ones, and truly enjoy the creativity of Escondido’s fantastic chefs and restaurateurs.
Details of participating restaurants and their specials will be posted soon… stay tuned!
