Eat your way around the world with Savor Fort Wayne

Savor Fort Wayne is back with more than 50 Fort Wayne area restaurants offering 12 days of menu deals from January 9-20th.

The deals include discounts on three-course meals, dinner for two, or special menu selections. You can browse the full range of offerings on Savor Fort Wayne’s website.

Don’t forget to pick up your STAR Rewards Card to collect stars at the restaurants you visit so you can be entered into a drawing for a $500 gift card. It only takes four stars (or meals) to enter, and if you go Monday-Thursday, you get two stars per meal, says Emily Stuck, Program and Events Manager at Visit Fort Wayne.

“It’s encouraging people to dine out during the week because restaurants want more business Monday through Thursday,” she explains.

So go out, and explore your options. While all of the restaurants offer great local flavors and ambiance, if you’re craving something exotic, you can find that, too.

Here’s a helpful guide to eating your way around the world at Savor Fort Wayne this year.
