In normal times, Chew on This focuses on restaurant openings and closings. These are not normal times, with restaurants ordered to switch to carryout, curbside and delivery. We know these businesses still need support from the community to survive, so each week we are going to highlight five businesses.
These are just a few examples of the many, many places offering these options — please look up your favorite restaurants on Facebook or give them a call to find out what they're offering.
If you don't want to leave the house, delivery services like Chomp, GrubHub and MyTownToGo are currently offering special prices or waiving delivery fees.
This week, we're highlighting breweries, to help you find the perfect place to get a beer for the Socially Distant Beer Festival, highlighted on the cover of this section. Find more about Iowa Brewing Company's offerings in that story as well.
