Life is Rough, Treat Yourself and Support Your Local Favorites
These Bay Area Breweries, Wineries, and Cocktail Bars Have Unique New Takeout Options
COVID-19 has brought some major tough times. But there are still ways to enjoy some simple things in life, such as a refreshing beverage, while supporting some of your favorite local small businesses. With so many days blending together, staying at home with not much going on, a special coffee in the morning or a fun cocktail at your virtual happy hour may be just what you need!
Many businesses have changed their business model overnight to try to stay afloat and to provide for their community. We wanted to provide you with a guide to some awesome businesses (who also happen to be TMC clients) to quench your thirst that are still open for takeout and/or delivery and are in need of your support.
Treat yourself while sheltering-in-place!
