If you count enjoying a meal at (or from) a good restaurant as entertainment, then here is a good event.

Running from March 8 to 20, 2021, the Flavours of Cobourg event encourages people to have a lunch or dinner at one of six participating Cobourg Restaurants. To make it interesting, participants can win a prize by entering details on a web page.

Each restaurant has a prix fixe lunch and dinner menu and the contest provides a chance to win one of 10 gift cards of $100. Participants can order curbside pick-up, take-out, delivery or book a reservation where COVID-19 regulations permit. I suggest you mention that you are participating in the Flavours of Cobourg event.

You then go to the Culinary passport page and enter details on which restaurant(s) you used. Entries will be selected at random with one entry per meal. You are asked to keep receipts to track participation – I assume this means winners will be asked to validate their entry with their receipts.

The prizes are 10 gift cards valued at $100 at a local business of the winner’s choosing. The more menus you try, the more times your name is entered to win.

The deadline to submit a Culinary Passport is Friday, April 2, 2021.

The intent is to support local eateries and is being organized by the Town of Cobourg, the DBIA and the Northumberland Central Chamber of Commerce.

Funding is provided by FedDev Ontario and the Regional Relief Recovery Fund.

These are the participating restaurants:

  • Arthur's Pub
  • Cucina Urbana
  • The El
  • Homeplate Restaurant
  • The Mill Restaurant & Pub
  • The Oasis Bar & Grill

But there’s more!
