Our Dine Originals Dollars certificates, available in any increment up to $100, are honored at every one of our member restaurants.  The gift of a meal…whether it is priced to pick up lunch for a coworker, or a 4 course dinner for your parents, is all the more pleasing when it comes with the feature of choice. Deciding where to use the certificate is part of the fun.

Especially in a down-turn economy, people tighten their belts where they can. Often, this involves dining out. Giving the gift of a restaurant gift card can provide a couple or family some time on the town to enjoy the ambiance of a favorite eatery, to reconnect over a memorable meal, or simple enjoy a fancy dessert. A taste of extravagance can be a wonderful gift!

By utilizing the Dine Originals Columbus gift program, you are turning someone on to the Eat Local movement. If you are receiving this message, we know you “get” it, but your Dine Originals Dollars gift comes with an important lesson for others who may not know that:

More money stays in the local economy when we eat at a locally owned restaurant. A 2008 study showed that for every $100 spent at a local-independent business, $73 stays in the community versus $43 at a non-locally owned business. Want to boost Central Ohio’s economy? Eat local. While we wish the TGI Olive Factory a Merry Christmas, it’s sort of hard to imagine they are using a local printer for their menus, a Columbus accounting firm to file their taxes, or a Central Ohio sign maker when they update their storefront. I’m sure the economy in Calabasas Hills, California prospers from their successes…but that might as well be the land of OZ as far as we can tell.

Locally owned means character. The entire planet seems to be morphing into charmless strip malls with identical Big Box stores that have one of six chain restaurants dropped into their parking lots. Ugh. When you are seated at Alana’s Food and Wine, the artwork alone tells you there hasn’t been a corporate hand anywhere near the place!

Eating local means connecting with your community. There is a true sense of place that comes from knowing the guy who tosses your pizza, the funny woman who pours your wine, and the handsome chef who nods in recognition when you see him at the North Market (no names mentioned, but he makes an amazing tortellini with those mushrooms he is picking up!). These people live in our town, work in our town and are invested in our town. Their livelihoods depend on us.

Print them out. Simple. Spicy. Mindful.
