WEB EXCLUSIVE Downtown Raleigh Alliance just announced a new incentive to eat lunch at a restaurant in Downtown–as if there weren’t already enough incentives already! And, this time, your lunch loyalty just might pay off.

From Feb. 19 to March 5, participate in the Downtown Raleigh Loyal lunch contest and you could win a $25 gift card (or a grand prize of a $100 gift card!) for a participating restaurant of your choice.

Here’s how it works: Post your Downtown Raleigh lunch pic to the ’Gram using hashtag #DowntownRaleighLoyal; tag the restaurant; and follow and tag @DowntownRaleighAlliance. Posting pics of lunch to get more lunch (for free!)? Now that’s a contest we can get behind.

That, and it’s for a good cause—DRA is all about advancing the vitality of Downtown Raleigh for everyone, and restaurants who specialize in lunch could really use some extra love right now. “DRA’s Downtown Raleigh Loyal lunch campaign is specifically targeted to restaurants serving lunch, which have been hit particularly hard by a year of fewer employees and visitors in downtown,” says Kathleen Louis, DRA’s vice president of engagement and business development. 

The campaign is also the perfect opp to support local businesses while upgrading your average everyday lunch to, say, tigelles (looking at you, Alimentari at Left Bank!); pho (Anise Pho has a killer lunch special); or one of Ashley Christensen’s amazing fried chicken sandwiches (you already know to order online from Beasley’s).

We don’t know about you, but we’re already planning our lunch orders for the next week. downtownraleigh.org/dra-programs/loyal.
