Summer of Support: $20 Dine-in & Takeout Deals to gobble up

By Matt Sterner
July 6, 2020

A delicious way to celebrate local chefs and restaurants throughout the summer.

As the temps heat up, the Southern Arizona Arts & Cultural Alliance is heating up the culinary scene with its "$20 for 2020 Summer Dine-in/out promotion."

Throughout the months of July and August, local restaurants, breweries, and wineries are offering some awesome deals for just $20. Being that many of its charitable fundraising events have been canceled this year, SAACA is using this unique opportunity to still show their support to the community.

The nonprofit organization posted the following on their website:

"We have decided to donate all our annual media partnerships which would typically be used to promote these community events and give back to our chefs, culinary, and restaurant partners at no cost. We ask that you continue to support Tucson's unique culinary heritage this summer, while supporting our chefs, restaurants and culinary makers who are most in need."

Keep in mind, the $20 deals are only available throughout the months of July and August, so start planning your meals now — there's a lot to choose from.

Heads up: Some of these meals are either dine-in or takeout only.
