With the spring visitor rush winding down, Islanders have been enjoying easier access to local restaurants and a return to the pleasures of dining out. And with that there has been a scramble for the popular Kiwanis “Diners Delight” 2 for 1 Coupon Books. As of May 1, coupons in the book can be used in participating restaurants and food service establishments. The coupons are good through Dec. 16.
Locally, books can be obtained at Bailey’s Market, Bank Of The Islands, Sanibel Captiva Community Bank (both Island locations), Island Pharmacy, SanCap Pak-N-Ship, Island Winds, Big Red Q Printing, Periwinkle Park Office, and from any Kiwanis member. Remaining inventory of the books is running low, so those interested are encouraged to get theirs soon.
Diner’s Delight books can be obtained for a $40 contribution and contains 2 for 1 coupons good at 29 participating Island restaurants, a potential savings of over $500 for those who eat out often. The coupons encourage diners to try new places, and they bring much-appreciated new business to restaurants on the Islands.
Participating restaurants this year include: Blue Giraffe, Boops by the Bubble Room, Bubble Room, Captiva House, Cielo, Doc Ford’s Sanibel or Captiva, The Dunes, Island Cow, Jerry’s Café, Joey’s Custard, Lazy Flamingo (Periwinkle Way & Santiva), Mudbugs, Normandie Seaside Café, Sanddollar, Sanibel Deli/Coffee Factory, Sanibel Sprout, Cantina Captiva, Sunshine Seafood Café, Subway, Sunset Grill, Thistle Lodge, Timbers, Tipsy Turtle, Sanibel’s Best Homemade Ice Cream and Sanibel’s Best Bakery/Coffee Shop.
The long-running Diner’s Delight program raises funds which Kiwanis uses to support its Scholarship Fund for local students and its grants to Island youth recreation and education programs.
