There are currently two editions, one for Milwaukee restaurants and one for Madison. The list of Milwaukee dining choices included in the tin are amazing. Each restaurant is either one that I already love or has been highly recommended to me.
When you open the tin, the first thing you see is a dinner spinner. Love it! I spun and landed on Hinterland, which coincidentally Chef Pampuch was just talking up the other night. I'm thinking Hinterland might have to be our first redemption in 2013.
Each City Tin comes with 20 coasters to be redeemed for $10 off a minimum purchase of $25. One aspect I love is that the minimum purchase includes both food and alcohol which many coupons do not.
There are three coasters that provide a choice in restaurants which are aptly named "Diner's Choice." For example, below is a coaster with Benelux on one side and Cafe Hollander on the other. The coaster is good for one of the two restaurants.
Below is the Le Rêve coaster which is an example of what the non-dining choice coasters look like. Each coaster provides location information, chef names, an indication on price and reservation information.
I'm really looking forward to dining out in 2013 with my City Tin, trying new restaurants and visiting old favorites. If you're looking to buy one, I'd recommend going to The Ruby Tap...after all, why not enjoy some wine when you buy your tin? :)
