Our local restaurants are struggling to survive, and the slow winter months will be their greatest challenge faced. But these restaurants can almost see the light at the end of the tunnel — the warmer weather and the vaccine’s full rollout. After a year of navigating the pandemic, our restaurants need to hold on just a little longer, and we can all help them to do so… by ordering takeout or dining in. Even if you don’t feel comfortable dining in, you can contribute to the survival of your favorite restaurants by ordering takeout or delivery. For the month of March, we encourage you to #dinelocal and support as many of our local restaurants as you can.
1 in ten Massachusetts residents work in the restaurant industry: owners, chefs, servers, line cooks, bartenders, and dishwashers. Your support can help save jobs and the dreams of our small business owners. Your support also helps save our eclectic and extremely delicious dining scene which our taste buds are counting on for years to come!
Please share your support for local restaurants. Encourage your friends and followers to do the same. Dine in or order takeout and post a photo of your order on social media with #dinelocal and share it with our Facebook page by tagging @downtownpittsfieldrestaurantmonth.
