  • What’s the Best Way to Support Local Restaurants and Bars?

    Carrying out is the new dining out—and the most delicious way to help food and beverage workers stay in business.

     •  

    When Colorado’s culinary establishments closed to in-person dining back in March in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, our Instagram feeds were bursting with friends baking sourdough, searing steaks, and stirring Negronis at home. Some six weeks later, we’re here to help lift you out of any kitchen rut you may have fallen into—and luckily, local food and beverage workers are still rallying to stay in business and feed you well, too, by preparing food and booze for takeout or delivery. One of our favorite quarantine indulgences comes courtesy of six-month-old Daughter Thai Kitchen & Bar in LoHi, which will deliver its gorgeous, aromatic duck curry with flaky roti for dipping; spicy basil chicken with jasmine rice; crispy fried frog leg larb; and even cold Thai lagers and fresh coconut juice. (PSA: Call restaurants directly instead of using third-party ordering and delivery services to keep more of your money with local businesses and avoid paying additional fees.) You can also buy gift cards to use when restaurants reopen or stock up on alcohol and merchandise, from bottles of Italian vino at Attimo Winery in Ballpark or large-format margaritas at Super Mega Bien in RiNo to comfy T-shirts and hoodies from Steuben’s (we know that’s what you’re wearing right now). It all adds up to helping ensure Centennial State restaurants and bars are still here when we are finally allowed to settle in at their tables again.
