College student foodies unite! Downtown Alliance is gearing up for its 13th year providing Salt Lake City with two full weeks of amazing food. From Sept. 9-25, you may not have to eat like a college student to maintain the budget of a college student.

When one thinks of a fun, bustling city, the image of people flocking to restaurants with stellar food and good music playing might come to mind. Downtown Alliance, an organization that is “dedicated to building a dynamic and diverse community that is the regional center for culture, commerce and entertainment,” as it says on the organization’s website at downtownslc.org, aims for just that; a fun food event that even humble college kids can enjoy.

Downtown Dine O’Round works together with over 45 restaurants to create event-specific menus that offer $5 or $10 two-item lunches, or $15 or $35 three-course dinners. The event encourages all to eat locally and try new restaurants — such as Finca — as well as enjoying some old favorites like Blue Iguana at a great price.

Aiming to bring more people downtown and strengthen the sense of community between Utahns, the Downtown Alliance even offers a chance to win dinner for an entire year- all you have to do is share a picture of your Dine O’Round meal on Instagram and use the hashtag #dineoround and tag @downtownslc.

Enjoying these special-for-the-event meals is simple. You can check out the website ahead of time to see the list of participating restaurants, or you can ask for the Dine O’Round menu! Hassle-free.

Bring a friend, a date, or make it a family affair and come see what this year’s Downtown Dine O’Round has to offer! Memories will be made, good food for a good price will be enjoyed, and you may just get to see Salt Lake City in a whole new light.
