RauDZ and micro join Dine Around 2016!

When Dine Around Thompson Okanagan launches later this week, two popular downtown Kelowna restaurants, RauDZ Regional Table and micro bar • bites will make their inaugural appearance in this dining experience event.

Dine Around, (formerly Wine & Dine) running from January 21 – February 7, invites guests to visit their favourite restaurant or try somewhere new, as chefs prepare delicious three course meals priced $25 – $45.

“We are excited to participate this year in Dine Around Thompson Okanagan to showcase our unique restaurants from two menu price points. The addition of beer and cocktails is great as we take as much pride in our cocktail and beer programs as we do in our wine and food. Our talented bar teams are making some of the most interesting drinks I’ve tasted!” states Executive Chef Brock Bowes.
