One of the busiest dining days of the year is almost upon us, and if you want to celebrate it with that special someone, you better act fast. You can of course expect all your favorite restaurants to open on the big day itself, but some have something extra special up their sleeves. The following are all the Valentine’s 2020 dining specials we currently know about.
We will continue to update this post as more menus and specials come in. All info and notes provided directly by restaurants:
Australian specialty coffee roaster, Campos Coffee, will be hosting a pre-Valentine’s Day fundraiser, Rebuilding Our Roots: To Australia with Love, to support the wildlife relief effort in the wake of Australia’s devastating wildfires. The event will take place at Campos’ Salt Lake City location on Thursday, February 13, 6:00-9:00 p.m.
Tickets are available for $50 and include passed hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, wine, beer, and live music. Special guests Utah Jazz player Joe Ingles and his wife, Renae, a gold medalist netballer and winner of the International Player of the Year Award, will be in attendance. A silent auction will feature exciting offerings including a trip to Australia, coffee brewing equipment, and gear signed by Utah Jazz team members. Additional auction items include coffee brewing equipment, wine classes, whiskey tastings, Jazz tickets, and private chef-catered meals. Proceeds from the event will be donated to WIRES (Wildlife Information Rescue and Education Service, Inc.), an Australian non-profit that has provided wildlife rescue services for more than 30 years.
“Given Utah’s affinity for wildlife and the environment, we thought having an event to serve as a fun platform for raising funds to provide relief to Australia’s animals would appeal to our local community,” says Hillary Merrill, Head of Retail, Campos Coffee USA.
The devastation the bushfires have caused will have long-term impacts on wildlife and communities as a result of the millions of acres of charred land and decimated homes. Millions of birds, reptiles and mammals, including Australia’s beloved koalas, have been killed. Wildlife that survived will face challenges with respect to term food, water, and habitat.
“Campos Coffee is built on communities and bringing people together over coffee. While the Campos Coffee’s roasting operations have fortunately been unaffected by the fires, many of our café partners in towns across Australia have been severely impacted due to local infrastructure damage and reduced tourism during the busiest period of the year.” says Rachel Pullicino, CMO of Campos Coffee. “As Australia begins to rebuild communities after the devastation, we are so grateful for the overwhelming support from our friends all over America, and the Salt Lake fundraiser is a unique way for people in our local community to get involved.”

I’m the founder, writer and wrangler at Gastronomic SLC and The Utah Review; I’m also a former restaurant critic of more than five years, working for the Salt Lake Tribune. I’ve worked extensively with other local publications from Utah Stories through to Salt Lake Magazine and Visit Salt Lake.
I’m a multiple-award winning journalist and have covered the Utah dining scene for more than a decade. I’m largely fueled by Uinta Cutthroat, alliteration and the use of too many big words I don’t understand. I ate all the pies.
