After months of working from home, the monotony of Zoom meetings and long days in quarantine with our dogs and kids might starting to take its toll on our sanity. Prior to the days of the Coronavirus outbreak,a working lunch has always offered the chance for us to connect with colleagues, clients, and friends in person while dining at some of Austin’s best restaurants.


Now that some of us are starting to get back out and about in public, it’s time to take advantage of the excellent discounted lunch rates offered at local restaurants in the Austin community.
