Tasty Take Out?
With the closure of all of our favorite local eateries the community enhancing activity known as dining out has turned into a grab it and go exercise as restaurant owners scramble more than eggs these days in an effort to keep their businesses going.
Here at N3 World Headquarters and Snow Cursing Center (C’mon. Mom Nature it’s nearly Mid May for cripes sake. Time to send Old Man Winter packing for good) we have limited our take out travels to those within close enough range to keep the food warm until it hits our dining room table.
For us this has included City Limits and Jimmy’s in Newaygo. Plans include hitting the Mexican options available at the RStop Saloon on Tuesdays but thus far remembering to order on Monday has eluded us. We also plan on making a trek to Hit the Road Joe for one of their thrice weekly offerings soon.
City Limits has been a weekly breakfast run and though we miss the communal dining experience of this local gem, the stuffed hashbrowns are still the bomb even when eaten in the comfort of N3WH&SCC.
While Jimmy’s has long been a Friday ritual involving burgers and brews, we have adjusted by getting them on the run on occasion. Not the same as soaking up some start of the weekend atmosphere but the burgs are just as wonderful as always and we thankfully have some Oberon on hand as a go with.
So here’s the challenge: Tell us about your take out dining experiences locally.
We want to hear about the places out there still slinging some hash for those of us who enjoy eating food prepared by others from time to time.
Where have you gone, when do you go, what you’ve been getting, why you like it, and how has it changed things for you during these days of dining-out deprivation?
Got a good story about it? Anything been a surprise? Best part? What do you miss?
No length requirements, could be a sentence, paragraph, essay, short story or even a novella.
We all want to support our local businesses and letting as many people know about the options still out there can do nothing but help.
So here’s how you can contribute.
