In normal times, Chew on This focuses on restaurant openings and closings. These are not normal times, with restaurants closed except 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 local restaurants.
These are just a few of the many places offering sweet treats; look up your favorite restaurants on Facebook or give them a call to find out what they have.
