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.
To pair with Orlando’s takeout and delivery options, Visit Orlando has developed a calendar of virtual events on social media for the weekends. Here are the events coming up:
Weekend of May 8-9
Friday, May 8 – Orlando’s Timucua Arts Foundation, known for intimate performances in the founder’s home, presents a modern jazz performance from the Philippe Lemm Trio. (7:30pm)
Saturday, May 9 – Attention all residents, think you know Orlando? See how your knowledge stacks up with an Orlando-themed Trivia Night with award-winning quiz master Curtis Earth. (8pm)
Weekend of May 15-16
Friday, May 15 – Enjoy lively traditional songs and Irish dancing with Raglan Road’s popular duo, Stephen & Abby, performing live from Ireland. (5pm)
Saturday, May 16 – SAK Comedy Lab – details coming soon!
The full list of dining offers and date night virtual events can be found on VisitOrlando.com/blog with more events to be announced.
Participants are also encouraged to share photos of their virtual date night ideas with the hashtags #407Dates and #OrlandoToGo with @VisitOrlando’s?and @OrangeCoFL’s social media?channels, including Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
