New Years: Takeout Edition

Updated: Dec 30, 2020

It's been quite a year. We've seen less of each other, haven't visited our favorite restaurants and bars, and have spent more time in our houses than we would've liked to. I know that for the past few months, I've felt rather uninspired (Hence the lack of blog posts since November. I'm sorry for that). Between the rising cases and the colder weather, going out and enjoying the food I love to enjoy has been getting harder. But I'm not going to let this crummy year get the better of me and I'm gonna go out with a bang. I'm gonna enjoy some of the best New Years to-go offerings that this city has to offer, and frankly, so should you! While we can't get together and party like it's not 2020, we can still support our favorite local restaurants and eat good food with those closest to us. Here's a list of everyone offering delicious takeout deals for the eve of the 1st.
