TWIN BRIDGES TAKE-OUT CRUISE
Supporting local restaurants
The community gathered on Twin Bridges’ Main Street to support their local restaurants Friday evening. The Old Hotel’s daily 50 bento boxes were accounted for before the day started. The Wagon Wheel Restaurant, Steakhouse & BBQ had to call employees into work for the first time since it closed its dining room. Pre-orders for take-out in the evening surged in the morning.
“Tons of BBQ,” Wagon Wheel Restaurant, Steakhouse & BBQ owner Janet Dustin said. “Which was good because we love making BBQ.”
Dustin said her sales were up compared to the last month. Most of her staff went on unemployment when the statewide directive restricted restaurants from serving due to the COVID-19 coronavirus.
A cruise around town followed take-out orders. There is talk of another Friday-night cruise in Twin Bridges April 24.
“I would say it was a huge success,” Dustin said. “I appreciate the support and the continued support from the community and other restaurants."
