Two-for-ones help locals instruct visitors on the best places to eat

I can’t help but respond to the letter from Mary Jo Molina actually complaining about the two-for-one dinners in Summit County. Either you just moved here or maybe you are just missing the point.

A few points can be made about the value of the two-for-one dinner specials.

First, it is an opportunity for some locals to afford to eat at some of our fine dining establishments.

Second, it offers locals a chance to eat out at a good price without having to fight the tourist crowd, on which we so depend for our economy.

Third – and I really think this might be the marketing idea behind it all – it offers locals the opportunity to experience different restaurants throughout the county, at a good price, so that they can make suggestions to the tourists who come here and ask, “Where is a good place to eat?”

But if you’d prefer to go to Vail and pay $10 for a hot dog, or Beaver Creek and pay $15 for a cheeseburger, that just leaves more space for us. But please don’t belittle something that we locals look forward to all season.
