Given the current California public health order limiting restaurants to takeout, Visit Oxnard is partnering with radio personalities Rico & Mambo on the “A Guy’s Gotta Eat” challenge to ask residents to forego cooking at home for the week – to please order takeout and support Oxnard restaurants.
Oxnard Restaurant Week will run from January 18th thru January 24th. Each day, Visit Oxnard will post the following challenges to its Instagram feed:
: Cocktails, Mocktails, Boba, Smoothies, Coffee, Beer, Wine – As long as it’s from an Oxnard restaurant.
: Brazilian, Mexican, Spanish, Peruvian, Cuban – Show us what’s out there.
: Any location in Oxnard – Riverpark, Downtown, Beaches/Harbor, South Oxnard – anywhere! Just has to be Oxnard.
: Chinese, Japanese, Viet Namese, Indian, etc. – it’s a big continent!
: Italian, Mediterranean, French – anything from the continent of Europe!
: Fish, crab, lobster, mussels – if it lives in the ocean, it probably counts!
To enter, snap a photo of your takeout and post to Instagram stories. Tag @visitoxnardca, @ricoandmambo and the restaurant where you ordered takeout – each Oxnard restaurant purchase earns you one entry toward $500 in Oxnard restaurant gift cards, courtesy of Visit Oxnard. Meet all 7 days of challenges for 20 entries.
Rico & Mambo will be running promotions for the weeklong event on Q95.9 FM and promoting the event on social media. “You know, we all gotta eat. So why not eat out?” say the duo. “We’re supporting Oxnard restaurants, and we want you to do the same during Oxnard Restaurant Week,” they continue. Rico & Mambo also recorded an advertisement with Visit Oxnard to get the word out.
Visit Oxnard encourages residents to help Oxnard restaurants make it through the shutdown by ordering takeout as much as possible during Oxnard Restaurant Week and beyond.
