The City of Clearwater is looking to help out local restaurants hit hard by the loss of business brought on by the coronavirus. Clearwater’s Summer 2020 Dine in Downtown Program means you get a $20 voucher to one of 9 downtown restaurants, cafes, and bars. Channel 8 says they city will give out 2,500 of these. The rest of the vouchers will be given out starting Monday here.

It looks like you need to be a Clearwater resident to take advantage of this offer. But other than that, there’s really no catch. You don’t have to dine at a certain off peak time or anything like that. You can go nights or weekends. You do, however, have to use these up by the end of August. Here are the participating restaurants:

Chiang Mai Thai & Sushi Bar
Clear Sky on Cleveland
Downtown Pizza Sports Bar & Grill
Kara Lynn’s Kitchen
Philly Joe’s Steaks & Hoagies
Pour Yours
Soul Sicilian Fusion
Vera’s Kitchen

Unfortunately my favorite Clearwater spots aren’t on this list, but gives me reason to try something new! [Source: Channel 8]
