To encourage downtown dining, 12 small businesses in Wichita have banded together to create “Eat Local. Drink Local.” To participate, visit all of the participating locations during the month of November and collect a stamp from each one by meeting a purchase minimum. Completed stamp cards will be entered to win a hefty prize — $50 gift certificates to each of the 12 places, a value of $600!

People can pick up the stamp cards at any of the participating restaurants and can turn them in there, too. After the completion of the promotion at the end of November, organizers will randomly draw two winners from all of the completed cards turned in by Nov. 30.

Read on for participating eateries, along with details on how to participate.
