Many local restaurants will actually roll out some special menus for pick up. Keep your eyes open for a blog with that information coming your way! Additionally, grocery stores might have when you need to create a new culinary masterpiece for your significant other. We think this route could be really fun and extremely romantic. However, if you desire to make a reservation and go out like you would any other year, you’ll encounter tables at a six foot span with a lot less people than “normal” inside the buildings.
