Orange County and Visit Orlando have partnered together again on a new promotion to help local restaurants, called “407 Dates.”

Through “407 Dates,” residents can enjoy virtual events each Friday and Saturday evening such as live-streamed music concerts, interactive Orlando-themed trivia shows and world-class theme park entertainment, as they order takeout/delivery found on the Orlando To Go website with over 500 local restaurants on VisitOrlando.com/togo.

Around Central Florida, restaurants are featuring a variety of new options for date nights, including special meal and cocktail/wine combos; make-it-together meal kits of restaurant favorites from grilled steaks to rolled sushi; and specialty deliveries from cheese and charcuterie boards to ramen bowls.
