FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Park City Area Restaurant Association
– events –
The Park City Area Restaurant Association is a 501(c)6 nonprofit comprised of more than 60 Park City-area restaurants, created to promote the world-renowned eateries that have made Park City and the surrounding region a destination for gourmands across the globe.
The PCARA welcomes and celebrates cuisine that is not only original, but is also served in a friendly resort-town atmosphere that offers an escape from the mundane.
The PCARA believes that if diners want great food, carefree relaxation and a refreshing break from the ordinary, whether it’s breakfast, lunch or dinner, they can hardly do better than Park City.
The organization, led executive director Ginger Ries, sponsors three annual region-wide events:
- Each June, hundreds of residents take a seat at Savor the Summit, an outdoor meal served on a long table that runs down the middle of Main Street by Park City’s best restaurants. The 2018 Summit included nearly two dozen restaurants and live performances by seven bands.
- The Summer Cocktail Contest pits Park City’s top bartenders against one another to concoct a drink that will be crowned Park City’s “Signature Cocktail” for summer, as voted by the public on the PCARA website. The winning mixologist earns a $200 cash prize, a feature in PCARA marketing materials for the fall “Dine About’ event, and, in a town with dozens of bars, serious bragging rights. The winning cocktail in 2018 was the “Cherry on the Rye,” a refreshing concoction created by tupelo mixologist Trevor Brown Jeff.
- Every fall, dozens of restaurants across Park City take part in Dine About, a two-week extravaganza featuring affordable and delicious two-course lunches and three-course dinners. The prix fixe prices can’t be beat: each lunch costs just $10 or $15 per person, and each dinner only $20 and $40. Local hotels also offer deep Dine About discounts.
