It is no secret that the past year has been hard for Island businesses due to the impact of the COVID virus. Sanibel and Captiva are fortunate that so many of our great Island eateries have made it through and are ready to get back to more normal operations. At the same time, the public is ready to enjoy eating out again. What a perfect time to snag a Kiwanis “Diners Delight” Coupon Book and head for your favorite restaurant.
Normally by late Fall the “Diners Delight” Coupon Books are sold out, but this year they are still available. The books can be obtained for a $40 contribution, and each one contains coupons good at 30 different Island restaurants and eating places. Coupons are good for a free entrée with the purchase of another entrée of equal or greater value. In a few weeks of using the coupons, savings can be significant. Coupons can be used through December 17, 2021.
The Books are available at numerous locations, including Bailey’s General Store, Bank Of The Islands, Sanibel –Captiva Community Bank, Big Red Q Printing, Island Pharmacy, Pack & Ship, the Periwinkle Park Office, or from any Kiwanis Club member. More information on securing a Coupon Book can be found at the Club’s website: http://www.sanibelkiwanis.org.
Eateries participating in the 2021 “Diner’s Delight” program include: Blue Giraffe, Bubble Room, Captiva House, Cielo, Crow’s Nest, Doc Ford’s (Sanibel & Captiva), The Dunes, Island Cow, Island Pizza, Jerry’s Café, Joey’s Custard, Lazy Flamingo (Sanibel & Santiva), Matzaluna, Mudbugs, Sand Dollar, Sanibel Deli & Coffee Factory, Sanibel Sprout, Key Lime Bistro, RC Otter’s, Sunshine Seafood, Cantina Captiva, Subway, Sunset Grill, Thistle Lodge, Timbers, Tipsy Turtle, Traders and T2.
In addition to helping restaurants return to normal, all proceeds from the Coupon Book Program will be used by the local Kiwanis Foundation to support its Scholarship Program for Island students and its grants to programs providing education and recreation activities for local youth.
