Who’s ready to go to the Crossroads for a burger, beer and a little flirting?
We know we’re dying to get back out, but the gayest place for us right now is on the other side of the mirror—staring back at us with so much fruitiness we can hardly stand it. And we’re tired of looking at that guy!
Of course, we all know the bars have shuttered temporarily and the closest we can get to happy hour with friends is over FaceTime or if someone comes over and stands on the sidewalk while we shout from our front porch.
But there’s at least one way we can get a taste, literally and figuratively, of better days on Cedar Springs Road. And that’s by ordering takeout from one of the local restaurants.
Hunky’s, Italia Express, Thai Lotus, Crickles and Co., Ai Sushi Sake Grill, Taqueria La Ventana, Cafe Brazil, Street’s Fine Chicken, Chef House, Tacos y Mas, Amico’s Pizza and Pasta and new kid on the block, Roy G’s are all offering some combination of takeout, curbside pickup and/or delivery.
Cedar Springs Tap House has temporarily closed and we were unsuccessful confirming whether or not Orno was open at press time, but don’t count them out necessarily. In fact, it’s not a bad idea to contact any of these place before ordering because menus and offerings have been changing on a daily basis at some spots around town.
Many of these places are selling to-go beer, wine and cocktail kits, too, so make sure to ask about those, too.
If you have a ritual of where you like to eat before going out to the strip or whenever you’re in the neighborhood, then now’s the time to recreate the experience at home and support these struggling local businesses.
You might end up dancing by yourself in the corner at last call, but is that really any different?
