Our local restaurants, bars, breweries, and spirits shops need our support more than ever. Even though dining rooms are closed, most restaurants—even ones you don’t normally think of as doing take-out!—are offering take-out, to-go ordering, curbside pickup, delivery, call ahead ordering, and yes, even beer, wine, and liquor drinks in sealed to-go containers.
