There’s only one place you can drink right now: Your home. But if you’re anything like us, the only drinks in your apartment include pickle juice, several airplane bottles of tequila, and some peach Schnapps whose origin story is unknown.
So here are some bars and restaurants where you can stock up on booze. These places are offering curbside pickup and some even deliver. Even though you can’t go drink at these places, you can still support them (and drink something great) by ordering from them. We’ll keep updating this guide with more information - so stay tuned, and stay well.
