Dine Out for PV Mens Chorus - Wednesday
Get ready for one of the most fun events of the Puerto Vallarta Men’s Chorus as we celebrate Dine Out 2015 to benefit the Chorus at some of your favorite local restaurants on November 4, 2015!
Our 3rd Dine Out event promises to be the best ever! All you do is “Dine Out” and the restaurant will donate to the Chorus a portion of your party’s entire bill JUST BECAUSE YOU DINED OUT! Besides grabbing some friends for some good grub at one of the participating restaurants, all you have to do is enjoy a meal at one of the many participating restaurants to help provide some of the “financial food” the Chorus must have to fund its mission.
This year’s restaurant line-up includes some of PV’s very best: Andale Restaurant, Archie’s Wok, Diablos/Bistro 156, El Mole de Jovita, Layla’s, No Way José!, Oscar’s Restaurant, Red Cabbage Cafe, Salud Super Food, Trio, Vitea, Di Vino Dante, and Mediterranean Cafe.
