University City District Dining Days Start Thursday, July 14

Dining Days, University City District’s version of Restaurant Week, kicks off in just a few short days. From July 14 through July 28 nearly 30 participating restaurants will be offering an array of hot deals on dinner. These offers clock in at either $15, $25 or $30 for three courses, making them both delicious and accessible for just about everyone.

You might be wondering why we’re writing about this promotion on a blog that is devoted to local eats. Well, it just happens to be that there are a number of restaurants on the Dining Days list who are dedicated local food buyers. Look for locally grown and produced items at spots like City Tap House, MidAtlantic, Rx, JG Domestic, Penne and White Dog Cafe. Just make your reservations now. If the past is any indicator, opportunities to dine at these prices don’t last long.

If you’re driving to Dining Days, make sure to get yourself a good deal on parking. Starting on Thursday, you can get $7 parking at either 38th or 40th and Walnut Street garages from 5 p.m.-midnight with validation from participating restaurants.

Finally, don’t forget to enter the University City restaurant gift certificate giveaway over on uwishunu. They’re offering two readers a chance to win $100 in restaurant gift certificates. You could win either $50 gift certificate to MidAtlantic Restaurant & Taproom and a $50 gift certificate to Rx or $50 gift certificate to White Dog Cafe and a $50 gift certificate to JG Domestic.
