Today’s special in restaurants across Wynwood: Hold the Zika.

Gov. Rick Scott will lead a troop of politicians, including Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez and Miami Mayor Tomás Regalado, to Wynwood restaurants Friday for Dine Out Wynwood, a one-day dining event to celebrate the end of the mosquito-disease-related travel restriction.

More than 20 restaurants will offer dining deals throughout the day to entice diners back to the community after the governor declared Wynwood “Zika free,” meaning no locally born Zika cases have been reported in the last 45 days. The full list of restaurants participating can be found at MiamiAndBeaches.com and Facebook.com/WynwoodMiami. Restaurants are tagging their specials on social media with the hashtag #DineOutWynwood.
