Starwood Preferred Guest has a Twice as Nice dining promotion for earning double base points, 4 Starpoints per dollar, for dining at a participating Starwood Hotel restaurant when not staying as a hotel guest from February 1 to April 30, 2014.
This is a global offer with 1,543 restaurant locations.
SPG Twice as Nice promotion registration is required for this offer.
This offer may be combined with the SPG.com/restaurantsandbars discount offers.
This promotion seems to be designed to bring awareness to the SPG Restaurants and Bars discount offers that launched in 2012. It was April 2012 when I wrote about SPG restaurant and bars discounts. There were few participating restaurants when the program launched.
*Eligible Food and Beverage Purchases
When an SPG Member is not staying at an SPG Participating Hotel, purchases made or charges incurred by the SPG Member for food and beverage (excluding alcoholic beverage purchases where prohibited by law) at participating restaurants located within or adjacent to SPG Participating Hotels will be considered as an Eligible Purchase or Charge if: (i) the restaurant permits guests to charge food and beverage on their folios; (ii) the charges are greater than $10 USD (after discount where applicable and excluding taxes, gratuities) ;(iii) the food and beverage is not in connection with a banquet, meeting or other function.

This looks like a good promotion for raising awareness of the SPG Restaurants and Bars program for dining and drink discounts while earning double points, even when not staying at the Starwood Hotel for a room night.
