Washington, DC – On Tuesday, January 22, select Tenleytown restaurants will begin offering weekly discounts for local students and educators. Organized by Tenleytown Main Street, the “Tenley Tuesdays” promotion is aimed at Tenleytown’s extensive educational community. Students, teachers, administrators, and other school staff are eligible for the discount program. They simply need to show their current school ID to take advantage of participating restaurants’ promotions every Tuesday.
Tenleytown is known for high-quality public and private educational institutions, ranging from pre-schools through post-secondary and law school. More than 24,000 students attend school within a mile of Tenleytown, a number that will continue to grow when Georgetown Day School completes construction of a new elementary and middle school adjacent to its current high school on Davenport St. Currently, Tenleytown is home to 11 schools, including pre-schools, elementary, middle, and high schools, American University, and the Washington College of Law.
“Whether they live and work in the neighborhood year-round or call Tenleytown their home away from home during the academic year, we value students, educators, and school staff as members of our community,” said Leigh Catherine Miles, Executive Director of Tenleytown Main Street. “We hope the Tenley Tuesdays program makes them feel welcome in our business district and encourages them to enjoy the many dining options Tenleytown has to offer.”
The pilot Tenley Tuesdays program will run through the end of the school year. Tenleytown Main Street anticipates more restaurants and retail businesses will join the program as it continues into the spring. Any Tenleytown business interested in participating may contact Tenleytown Main Street at 202-362-1815 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
