Help a local


In these trying times everyone is suffering, including local restaurants you like. If you are able, try and order take-out from your favorites over the coming weeks. Many of them are offering curbside pick-up or delivery to make getting your food as quick and easy as possible. Just remember, one day this will all be over and things will return to normal and you’ll want them to be there right with you when it does!
