Supporting Local Restaurants

I have been talking with friends about the various restaurants who are opening their doors to takeout during the difficult time. Many (most actually) are places that have never done takeout menus before so it took a couple of days to get up and running but they’re doing it! I’m going to try to keep a list here of the options I know of in the area. Feel free to let me know of others and I’ll add them (email, instagram, or twitter me).

Ride Out the Wave was just brought to my attention. Great and very thorough site!
