Choose a coaster: Inside each kitschy tin are coaster gift cards each worth your choice of $10 off your tab for dine-in or $5 off on takeout. To begin, pop open your tin and select a coaster featuring one of the iconic, locally-owned venues. Can’t decide where to go? Look no further than the Dinner Spinner inside each tin. Give it a spin and let the foodie fun begin!
Sip and Savor: Spend at least $25 at the featured venue. Enjoy anything on the menu from drinks to desserts. Submit the coaster gift card to your server when the check is presented and receive $10 off your tab (pre-tax/gratuity). No blackout dates, no nonsense. Some exclusions may apply, but nothing earth shattering. See coasters for details. To use coaster on takeout, call in your order of $25 or more. (If online ordering is available for use on CityTins it will say so at the top of the coaster with details.) Be sure to bring your coaster at time of pick up! You’ll need it to receive your discount and get the goods!
Rinse and Repeat: Repeat until you’ve painted the town red—or until you’re out of coaster gift cards! Coasters expire at the end of the calendar year of 2022, so use ’em or lose ’em!
